We do too much! TIME TO STOP AND THINK PLEASE
We live in some pretty fantastic times—a lot to see and do in the world. But we spend so much time trying to DO, we don't often have time enough to THINK.

Introduction
hipster + living in berlin + round-the-world traveler + graphic designer + more

I'm a graphic designer from Boston via Texas. Worked three years for a major international book publisher and now I'm traveling.

While traveling I've designed, written, published, advertised and done a million other things with my travel blog, Travels of Adam. As of November, I've also started a gay travel blog: http://mygaytravelguide.com. Check it out!

I'm also a Twitter-adict and have been playing around with a lot of the awesome social media tools at our disposal, notably Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.

Tasting the Best of Prague on a Food Tour
travelsofadam.com

Prague's not just beautiful, it's also delicious! Photos and a story from my day tasting the best of Czech cuisine on a Prague Food Tour.

Sort of friendly staff, nice book selection and a decent space for meetings and getting work done. Wifi codes only last an hour which kind of sucks but other than that it's a good enough place. Bagels are great!

Cute people, all 80s music - not sure if it's strictly a gay bar or just very gay-friendly

Beautiful interior design, very cosy, delicious meals for a good price! Great for brunch but you might have a long wait

This place is very historical and that's partly why I visited :) It felt a bit stale on the inside, though, so I recommend sitting on the outdoor patio if possible.

I took the Eating Prague tour when visiting during Prague's 4th annual gay pride last weekend. It was a fun way to see the Old City and get a chance to visit some less touristic spots. The food on the tour was delicious and made me realize there's more to Czech cuisine than just dumplings and potatoes.
