My NZ Summer Home // Picton & The Marlborough Sounds

  In the world of travel, I will fulfill having the courage to leap into the unknown, connect with people I have yet to meet, see beautiful places out of ones dreams, and have adventures of a lifetime. I don’t know how long I will freely travel, but at some point I will not only need to take a break, but I will need to settle down and earn some travel funds. Finding a place to live, find a job, and call a place home. These were all thoughts and ambitions of mine before I hopped on that flight, done what I had done with the...

Life & Reflections of A World Traveler (Jan. 2018)

I feel sad! Utterly and completely sad! Not because of something that happened today. Not because of something that has happened yesterday. It’s life itself. Life is beautiful and a day in it is a major blessing. Why am I sad though? Because I occasionally take a step away from my own body and soul, take a grand panoramic view of everything, and simply remember… life is…. just short. “…being a traveler allows you to realize how short life is in such a big beautiful world.” Too often do we forget, in our “perfect...

Budget Travel & Aloha on Big Island (Hawai’i)

It’s been 4 months since I left Hawai’i, 7 whole months since I was on Big Island, and seemingly the same amount of time since I last had a decent blog posting. What a hell of a lot of catching up to do in a different year and different country….swoo shhhhhh… Hawai’i, the land of shakas, massive flying roaches and centipedes. Islands where kings reined, beaches of black to white sand, volcanoes and lava fields, and climates from hot and dry and desert like, to rainy and tropical. Lets not forget Mauna Kea, which...

2017: A Year of Perseverance

2017: A Year of Perseverance

2017 was one of the most difficult and life lesson learning kind of years for me. Leaving home early this year had me anticipating an incredible voyage spanning across the United States, Hawaii, & the South Pacific. I met amazing people, reconnected with old friends, connected with family for the first time. Couchsurfed and rode the train across the US and camped and hitchhiked around Hawai’i island. But like life itself, things do arise and things happen. For me, my travels came to a dead halt nearly halfway through the year,...

Stuck in Paradise // Reflections of a World Traveler

“Things happen for a reason!”, a common phrase most or all of us have heard at some point. We hear it at work. We hear it at home. While we travel. On the road. It ultimately boils down to our perspective in life to really accept this statement. We often ask ourself, “How did I get here?”. For me, I believe it to be true beyond imagination. I would have never thought I would be writing and sharing some of my life with you in the home of a bunch of strangers turned friends on O’ahu. So how exactly did I get here?...

Amtrak Across America, A First Experience

Amtrak Across America, A First Experience

Travel by train has always been my favorite form of travel, even if my first train was in 2013 in Canada with Via Rail. Even before that, it’s always been my dream. Because of that, travel by train in America has been one of my biggest dreams, ever! Since 2013, I have taken many trains across Europe including yes, a Long Island RR train ;). With a working holiday visa approval in New Zealand, I decided that I won’t fly straight there, I might as well make many stops on the way there. One of these many stops, were cities across the...

I Can’t Wait // A New Voyage

I Can’t Wait It’s been 7 months since I’ve been on the road, spending lot’s of quality time with family, indulging in the comforts of home, and temporarily living a routine lifestyle with a part time job. While I have sort have settled a bit, I’ve begun to feel those nomadic symptoms more and more. I realized that coming back home has showed me what it’s like to have seconds thoughts about leaving, all over again. The perfect reminder that it’s not as easy to leave everything for the open road, even...

Living A Dream: The Greek Islands

Living A Dream: The Greek Islands

When people ask me why I am in Greece, my immediate response is “Why not?” When I give my second more serious response, I always truthfully say that I have always wanted to go to Greece since I was younger. All for it’s beauty and it’s ancient history, mythology, and stories. But while Greece has always been my number one destination since, always, island hopping the Greek Islands has been my number one dream. I can’t remember when this dream started, but I know I wanted to do this since I was younger. While I...

Crete: The Big Island of Greece

My 11 Days in Crete People like to deny it but Crete is just as much a Greek island like Santorini, Tinos, or Siros. Sure it’s way larger than most of the islands which are smaller. But think of it like the island of Hawai’i in the Hawaiian island group, Crete is the BIG ISLAND. Crete is without a doubt an island of it’s own, with it’s own culture, dialect, and overall mindset. “For Christ sake, people in the villages have guns!”, said my host in Iraklio. I’ve spent a whole 2 – 3 weeks island...

Hitchhiking Albanian Riviera

Hitchhiking Albanian Riviera

With hitchhiking being a fairly new resource to me in the world of travel, I have quickly become very knowledgable in what to do and how to do it despite my intimidation for so long at the beginning of this Balkan journey. Albanians are some of the kindest most hospitable and friendly people I have met in the Balkans. I’ve gotten pretty lucky and fortunate to meet some incredible people either on the road, in hostels, or in towns and cities. For the most part, hitchhiking in Albania I felt should work… almost.. always? I’ve...
