Schaffhausen, the Ideal Day Trip from Zurich

April 15th, 2015

Last weekend my dad and I decided to go somewhere new close to Zurich. We wanted to go somewhere on the train, but not too far away, and not too expensive. Switzerland is notorious for being outrageously expensive and their trains are no exception. A one-hour ride can cost you upwards of 30 Swiss Franks each way. After a few days of thinking my dad had a brilliant idea for our weekend day-trip, Schaffhausen! Schaffhausen is a small city located about 45 minutes by train from Zurich. It’s most known for being home to Europe’s largest waterfall, Rhine falls. Also, not to be overlooked is the... Read More

Ten Must-Do things in Rio de Janeiro

I honor of Carnaval season in Brazil being underway… …besides the massive block parties that happen ALL the time during the month of February and sometimes into March (which you can see above from last year’s Carnaval)..here is a list of my favorite things to do in Rio if you get a chance to get away from all the madness for a few minutes! 1: Dos Irmaos Hike: I’ve posted about this hike before and I will continue to write about it for many reasons, the most important being it’s not only a hike but a cultural experience as well. To get to the top of the famous Dos Irmaos,... Read More

How I Traveled Around Jamaica for Just $300

February 4th, 2015

You’ve probably either been to Jamaica or heard of someone going to Jamaica. However, I have to ask the question…how many of these people have actually been to Jamaica? Not just their resort, or their resort and a few spots in the resort town? My best guess is very few. Very few people have seen what Jamaica is actually like. Because of this belief my partner in crime and I had (we are currently filming a web series bases on showing real places, real people and real culture) decided Jamaica, a massive tourist destination, would be the perfect place to dig deeper and get a feel for what the... Read More

Simple Travel-Related New Year’s Resolutions to Get You Traveling Better and More Often

December 30th, 2014

1: Travel somewhere alone. The best way to learn about yourself is to be alone with yourself.   2: Go on more road-trips. Sometimes the best getaways are right in your backyard. 3: Go camping. 4: Go somewhere you know very little about. This for me in 2015 is going to be Turkey. 5: Go somewhere where you don’t speak a lick of their native language, Brazil perhaps? 6: Do something you’ve never done. Why not go to Morocco and ride camels through the Sahara Desert? 7: Go somewhere outside of your typical holiday destination. Yes, Cancun will still be there next year.   8: Go somewhere... Read More

November 25th, 2014

Venice is one of the most surreal places I’ve ever been in my life.  The entire time I was there I kept asking myself if it was real.  I had seen Venice so many times in movies, television, and books, and then I was actually there.  It is such an amazing place.  The people are charming and the town itself is magnificent.  After spending almost a week in Venice I can easily say I fell in love with it.  Follow these ten steps to ensure a good stay! 1.  Beware the time of year you plan to go to Venice. Italy is a summer destination. During this time of the year people say that if you... Read More

Sagrada Familia in Barcelona: Gaudi’s Unfinished Masterpiece

October 28th, 2014

Sagrada Familia, where to start? This astonishing piece of architectural perfection is Antonio Gaudi’s most prominent –yet still unfinished–project. I have lived in Barcelona for four months now, however I hadn’t actually gone inside Sagrada until last weekend. Within seconds of entering the church I was blown away. I couldn’t believe anything, a church for that matter, (which sadly become monotonous at times) could be so original, innovative and inspiring. The magnitude and the dimensions, the illumination and the uniqueness. This awe inspiring piece was something I had to write about... Read More

Mendoza Wine Camp

October 14th, 2014

Mendoza, Argentina is famous for it’s mountain ranges that surround the city, and just the right combination of cool and warm temperatures and soil that make the perfect recipe for growing succulent grapes, and in turn, producing delicious wine.  Mendoza being the highest wine producing region in Argentina.  When we arrived in Mendoza we knew we’d be in for drinking tasty local wine and enjoying the beautiful mountains, laying just east of the Andes, but what we didn’t know was just how luxurious and lavish the experience was going to turn out to be. From traveling around South America... Read More

Ha Long Bus Ride to Halong Bay, Vietnam

September 23rd, 2014

Halong Bay in northern Vietnam literally translating into “descending dragon bay” is a stunning natural wonder of our world. This majestic bay consists of massive limestone formations with lush jungle-like foliage that soar high out of the water from deep below the cool green depths. On a clear day, the views are breathtaking and the some two thousand-island formations can be seen from miles away. On a foggy day you are sometimes unable able to see the immense formations until they suddenly rise up out of the mist above you only yards away.     People spend anywhere from a single... Read More

Cusco, Peru: The Backpacker’s Paradise

September 9th, 2014

Cusco is most commonly known as the first, and major pit stop on the way up to legendary Machu Picchu. However, it’s much more than just a city people travel through; it’s an exceptionally beautiful and charming town where backpackers from all over the world come together.                                                     This was part of my first leg of my trip to South America, about a year ago. On the small plane to Cusco, most likely from Lima, (Peru’s capital... Read More
