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 [...]
Because of the media, and any news source that I have come across recently, my expectations for my visit to Israel were quite low. In my mind the Middle East and Israel was going to be dangerous and not worth a visit. Thankfully I made the trip anyways, to find out for myself. I was [...]
After being in Egypt for nearly 10 months, I am happy to finally move on. I will miss Dahab and all the diving that I became addicted to, but I am glad to be back on the road again. After many hours on the bus, I arrived in Jerusalem, Israel. The quality of life and [...]
Even after four years and 67 countries, I have yet to see the Pyramids of Giza, which are arguably the number one destination on anyone’s list. Until today. Today I dumped the backpack and flip-flops, and went full tourist here in Cairo. I left my tiny budget hostel, rode the dirty metro, took a taxi [...]
This is a post of what I hope isn’t too much of a generalization of what I have learned about religion, and the conclusions I have made in the process. To make it clear, I (think) I believe in god, but I definitely don’t believe in religion. I wholeheartedly believe that religion was made by [...]
Have you ever planned an amazing trip and just knew your photography skills just wouldn’t be up to the challenge of really showing the true beauty of the place? I have, quite often in fact. So when it came time to dive Thislegorm near Sharm El Sheik, Egypt, I was pleasantly surprised and relieved to learn [...]
If anyone ever tells you that Italy isn’t all that, you should know they’re plain and simply wrong. Italy IS all that and then some more. The movies, the magazines, the postcards – they don’t just portray a beautiful myth. The streets really are narrow with laundry drying out on tiny balconies, flowers hanging over [...]

My whole of 2013 was spent wandering Europe, and making some of my best memories, and friends of my life. One memory come to mind when I think of Europe, and that is my time hitchhiking the Balkans. This hitch in particular, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia and Romania. Hitchhiking the Balkans How it started out, was [...]
