The Sacred Valley

November 13, 2014
Ollantaytambo, Cusco, Peru
I’m still slowly catching up on my blog posts over the past couple years. Here’s another from my South American adventure from two years ago… Shortly before I departed on my trek to Machu Picchu I received a Facebook message from a friend asking how long I would be in Cuzco since they would be there soon as well. This is yet another serendipitous moments where Facebook has brought us all closer… Read more

Manu Jungle

August 26, 2014
Madre de Dios, Peru
Yet another short post, the most import piece being the photos… Cuzco and the surrounding environs is where I spent the longest portion of my trip. I arrived in Cuzco from La Paz on 4 March and did venture beyond until 18 March. My final excursion was a four day trip to Manú Jungle. While not a deep venture into the Amazon… Read more

Machu Picchu

August 22, 2014
Cusco, Peru
As I’ve described previously, this is part of my series of getting caught up on my South American adventures, and as such will be much shorter than my usual posts. As I had a very undefined itinerary for the second half of my trip, I did not know when I would arrive in Cuzco and when I would be able to do my Machu Picchu trek. The famous route is the Inca Trail… Read more
Your intrepid traveler kneeling atop a rock hovering above the beautiful hills and valleys of Machu Pichu. Like an asshole, of course I made it my profile picture.

La Paz Photos

April 26, 2012
Nuestra Señora de La Paz, La Paz Department, Bolivia
Here’s a full photo album of my time in La Paz including Lucha Libre and Death Road. And a little insight into my time in La Paz. “do you have any plans for tomorrow? because I don’t know about you, but I plan on getting ridiculously drunk tonight.” 5 minutes later: “this is going to sound ridiculous but I have to be up tomorrow at 7 to be on Bolivian television”  

Iguazú Part the Second: Smallworld-itis

April 3, 2012
Misiones Province, Argentina
Wednesday 21 March–Saturday 24 March Getting across the Argentinian border was more time consuming than planned, but without incident. Our bus driver left while we were getting our Brazilian exit stamps, so we had to wait about 30 minutes for the next bus from the same company. I would recommend you just pay another R$4 for the very next bus… Read more

Kilimanjaro Photos

September 25, 2010
Kilimanjaro Region, Tanzania
I am almost done with my final blog post about my Kilimanjaro expedition. It’s an epic one that I’ll probably split up into two or three parts. In the meantime, here is the full set of photos:

Florida/London/Paris Photos

July 22, 2010
Sorry for the delay in posts, I’ve been absurdly busy since getting back to Chicago. Here are photos from Florida, London, and Paris to tide you over. I promise some new posts this weekend. Florida London Paris

La Vida es Pura, no es Dura

March 31, 2010
Puerto Viejo, Limon, Costa Rica
Today marks exactly one year since I departed on my month-long adventure around Europe. And it’s been quite a year: an excellent summer in Chicago, adventures in Colorado, Atlanta, and Las Vegas (when you turn 30, you’ve got to do it in style–which may or may not be what happened in Vegas). And finally, sneaking in just before a full year stuck in America… Read more

Finally Florence

July 9, 2009
Florence, Tuscany, Italy
First off, my boy Hassan Annouri’s new video filmed in Morocco. I met this guy and his video crew chilling at at awesome seafood restaraunt in Asilah. It’s in German, but that doesn’t make it not sick. (His new album drops July 31) Next, my boy Trevor… Read more

Torino e Cinque Terre

June 10, 2009
Torino, Piemonte, Italy
I must apologize to my faithful readers for the tardiness of these last few sets of photos. And more importantly, I must apologize for my severe lack of pictures in Torino. While the weather was less than optimal, I had a fantastic time with my excellent host Floriana. Since it was raining for much of the time, outside was not much of an option… Read more
