As a fan of architecture, particularly Renaissance and Renaissance-inspired styles, I found plenty of beautiful buildings to explore in Boston. One of my favorites is the Old South Church
, which can be found in the Back Bay neighborhood near Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library.
Inspired by the architecture of… Continue

Lately, it seems everyone is getting hitched and while as guests, we dread the bridal registry, poorly catered food and the awkward
singles table, weddings can be a fun thing. I was invited to a wedding in Miami
and was expecting the usual torment, but the evening end up being a mini
getaway in the city I grew up in for years.…

At first I found the idea frightening. You're telling me that you are willing to place your life in the hands of a stranger? Couchsurfing was a completely foreign concept to me until a few months ago. My boss at work (which is an avid backpacker and traveler) was talking about his upcoming trip to South East Asia. He was planning on going with some Couchsurfers he knows and mainly stay in a combination of hostels and Couchsurfing… Continue

Alone you say? Really? Nobody wanted to come with you? Don’t you get bored? Lonely? Scared?
Ah, the myriad of pointless questions and assumptions directed to the lone traveler. Even if I did get lonely and scared, would hearing somebody else imply that they ‘figured as much’ really be relevant? That’s like saying ‘a hernia eh, isn’t that uncomfortable?’. But if you must know-no, no I don’t.
Taking off and traveling all alone can be a daunting decision. My advice to you is to book your… Continue

We've been in Curacao for over a month now. I know we should have posted a new blog by now but we have been super busy between exploring this island and the normal boat work to keep afloat! In these past few weeks we've also been able to meet so many new and interesting people that we may actually have a "social" life going for the first time in 5 months. There have been some major changes that have been taking place to our trip itinerary (we'll go into that in detail later) and a minor… Continue

Beijing is an exciting, cosmopolitan city that is vast as it is diverse. There are always a TON of things to do. The five days I spent in Beijing were not enough to scratch the surface of all there is to see and do. ESPECIALLY since I was on a field trip with 130 seventh-graders.
But I'm not complaining. I'm glad that I had the chance to go (and the… Continue

Destination: Kenya, Tanzania, and Zanzibar during the Christmas break.
Kenya: Two days exploring Nairobi after a harrowing 14 hour flight with a faulty entertainment system. Stayed for two nights in a hotel where we feared getting malaria and slept with mosquito nets on, went to the markets, mentally prepared for what came next.
Tanzania: Started a 7-night camping trip where we had to set up and take down our own tents. Went to the Serengeti and watched a wildebeest… Continue

Hi guys and gals
As you may have heard, there's a volcano erupting in Iceland. Despite the tremendous effect it has had on flights in Europe, it has nearly any effect in Iceland, except right below the volcano. Despite that, people are cancelling trips to Iceland, but tourism is our most important industry after the economic crash in October 2008.
I have therefor started a travle blog focusing on Iceland and our neighbours Greenland and the Faroe… Continue
