So I badly needed a change of pace from sunny San Diego, and I booked a trip to New York City! The last time I was here was when I was 17 years old. Things have changed quite a bit over the years! When I left San Diego, the high was looking to be about 77 that day. The first day in NYC was the day after a huge blizzard. They called it a “weather bomb” where tons of snow fell in a really short Continue

Some learning experiences abroad: 1. Many countries in Europe are not on the Euro. 2. Europeans love their dairy. The further north, the more dairy products. 3. Covering 3 cities in 7 days is too much. 4. It’s possible to stay in shape by using playgrounds. No gym necessary. 5. People smile much less in Eastern Europe than in the US. 6. Most people speak English no matter where I go. 7. Minimalism is great for travel about 95% of the time. 8. Hanging out Continue

When they built the infamous wall in Berlin to separate the Soviet-run communist East from the relatively free West, not everyone just went along with with the “powers that be” decided for their lives. What would you do if say, a government project, like a wall, was to be built right by your house? Would you go along with it, allow them to seize your property or decide your fate for you? Would you back down and sell out because “path of least resistance” and Continue

Bye bye baltics, hello Helsinki. I think I have dreamed of coming to Finland most of my life. I kind of thought there would be some magical day when I felt like I was rich enough to see the Nordic countries. And, BTW, Finland is not considered part of Scandinavia like most people think. It’s kind of its own place. It’s the rebel of the Nordics 🙂 It’s separate from everything in a way, but still part of the EU and on the Euro. In Continue

Coming to you from Helsinki, Finland, I spent the past week zooming through the Baltics, including Vilnius, Lithuania, Riga, Latvia, and Tallinn, Estonia. While it seemed like I whipped through all these places, there was so much to see and experience, that it seems like weeks ago that I was in Warsaw. After my stinky bus ride from Warsaw, I finally arrived in Vilnius at night, and everything was closed by that point, so I my dinner consisted of mixed nuts and some dark chocolate Continue

Wanted to post a quick tally of my expenses since I started traveling on June 28th. This includes prepaid Airbnb in Prague. I don’t save all my receipts and some of this is off memory, so it’s not 100% to the T accurate, but close enough. This includes my time in Prague, Poprad, Krakow, Czestochowa, Warsaw, Vilnius, Riga, and Tallinn. Keep in mind, I almost always take the comfortable way out. If I want something, I pay for it. If I can take Uber vs Continue

Why did I come to Warsaw? Well, I’m in Poland, and it’s the capital. And it’s a big city so there must be some interesting things. And I needed to build in a chunk of time in a place where wifi would be decent (it wasn’t in my place) to get work done. And I have a friend that’s living there now who I could visit. But I knew nothing about Warsaw. So I had no one reason to be there but it made sense Continue

“What do you think about Donald Trump?” My first day in Krakow, I checked into the Mundo Hostel, which seemed like the perfect blend of a great location, a non-party hostel, and an interesting and friendly group of people staying there. I struck up a conversation with a guy from Iceland working on his computer in the lobby. “From the US? What do you think about Donald Trump?” I quickly found out this is a commonly asked question of Americans. I ended up having a Continue
