Even though I had an amazing time in Lisbon, particularly when I took the graffiti tour of the city, I kept on getting recommended to visit Evora. Turns out it was only an hour or two away by train, so I went to check it out, not knowing anything about it. As it happens, everyone [...]

Lisbon has to have some of the best street art that I’ve seen. I take a lot of guided graffiti tours, and the one I took with my hostel, Destination Hostel, was one of the best I’ve been on. In fact, Destination Hostel was the nicest hostel I’ve ever even stayed in. It is definitely [...]
Spain! I’ve been to nearly every country in Europe, but somehow never Spain. So as I rolled into the train station in Barcelona I realized I just arrived in my 70th country. And Barcelona will be a great introduction. I’ve heard so much about Barcelona that I know exactly what to expect and where to [...]
If you are a fan of amazing sunsets, particularly ones with a lake and volcano backdrop, then there is probably no better place then Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. To show you what I mean, Gabriel Queche who runs a hotel in Santa Catarina, has sent me his favorite snaps of the beautiful scenery just outside his [...]
I take a lot of tours, especially in Europe, and each one is Unique. I’ve taken a private tour of the Vatican, graffiti tours in Portugal and Romania, and even holy tours in Israel. But maybe the most fun was my Fiat 500 tour of Rome. I recommend all the tours I’ve done, but this [...]
Meet Aileen. At 21 she quit her corporate job in the Philippines to travel the world and ever since then she has been….. ok I’ll let her tell you what shes been up to! -First of all, tell us about yourself I am Aileen Adalid and I am from the Philippines, a country with gorgeous islands, hospitable [...]
From Liechtenstein I took the train all the way to Rome, with stops in Zurich and Milan. Italy is kind of a pain for the Eurail pass because they still charge you for reservations, which cost a lot. But after some searching I finally found slow trains that don’t require the reservation. I’ve never been [...]
I’m getting a jump start on 2015 by highlighting the top travel tweeters in the business. This massive list (which took forever to make) is sure to bring you all you need when it comes to travel inspiration and information. My goal is to bring every single person that reads this epic list of social [...]
After leaving Venice, my next destination was the tiny nation of Liechtenstein. But to get there by Eurail, first I had an incredibly beautiful train journey though Austria, Northern Italy and a small part of Switzerland. These routes have consistently been named some of the most scenic train journeys in Europe, and I can vouch [...]
After arriving in Venice by Eurail from Ljubljana, I stepped out of the station to a beautiful view of the Grand Canal. It was amazing, with a big palace on the other side, where the water came up nearly to the door step. I knew it was going to be a maze and hard to [...]
Here is my pick for the best beaches in Costa Rica, a country that will always stick in my mind (and heart) as one of my favorite places in the world. Yes, Costa Rica has amazing low-budget-friendly beaches, beautiful, untouched rain forests and countless exotic animals, but the reason I fell in love with it [...]
Before coming to Ljubljana, Slovenia I had done no research and knew nothing about the place. I had been to Maribor before during my last hitchhiking trip, but never Slovenia’s capital. I had no idea what to expect, I just knew it was somewhere I hadn’t been yet. All I knew is that it was somewhere [...]
Continuing on my Eurail journey, I leave Bucharest to head to Ljubljana, Slovenia. First stop on the way is Budapest, Hungary, a good 10 hours down the track. Before you send your angry message to me wondering why I am not spending more time in Budapest, I assure you I love Budapest and have visited [...]
After ten months in the Middle East, I am very happy to have once again arrived in Europe. I knew I missed Europe, but I didn’t even realize how badly until I arrived in Bucharest and there was relative piece and order. People were actually stopping at stop lights, and no cars were honking, no [...]
I’ve had an epic trip in the Middle East this year. First I got rained out of Israel and so took refuge in Jordan. After a old and snowy couple weeks in Jordan I crossed over into Egypt, planning on spending a couple weeks in Dahab. Dahab was too much fun, and I ended up [...]
What the Israeli government likes to call a “security fence”, but what is commonly refereed to as the Apartheid wall and the Berlin Wall of West Bank, is in fact a 20 ft tall, 700+ kilometer wall snaking through the West Bank of Palestine, effectively cutting them off from Israel and the rest of [...]
