Before I start this post, I should point out that my travel friend, Alican, and I, are not the best with preparation. I will back this up by mentioning that my previous post has been updated with a little story that I forgot to mention: missing the last bus and trains back from Monaco to […]

Day One: Nice. Yep, it’s official. For the next few weeks, I will not be able to say or hear the word ‘nice’ without making some pun about the city with a similarly spelled name, located in the French Riviera. As the first stop on our mini-Europe trip, a friend, Alican, and I, flew into […]

As Germany has a solid economy and is more-or-less central, my girlfriend, Michelle, and I have decided to make this our […]

Location: Dominican Republic (Santo Domingo & Las Terrenas) Length: 1 week Cuisine: Salty. People: Wonderful. The first thing that I noticed when I got off the plane in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, was the sweltering heat. The second, the blatant disregard for eco-anything: we walked outside the front doors of the […]

It’s about that time again… The glow of the Summer 2012 lines has begun to fade, and the incredible pieces you saw at Vancouver Fashion Week and Eco Fashion Week has finally drifted from your dreams. This is all to be replaced by the dread of winter, looking forward to bed by 10pm only to […]

Wow!

Keep your ears tuned and your eyes here because yours truly will be giving an […]
