NEW!

Earlier this month I visited Chicago and northern Illinois on a road trip. The goal was to experience a bit of Americana—those things so typically American, so typically traditional of one of the world’s largest countries. Road tripping with +EnjoyIllinois  through “the heartland” of the USA, my personal plans for the trip were what you might consider basic: eat, drink, take pictures and enjoy—but the trip turned out to be much more surprising.

The past two weeks have been an incredible whirlwind—Berlin, Chicago, road tripping in Illinois, Boston and now Los Angeles. I’ve never felt so professional, so silly, so alive. I know I haven’t updated this blog while I’ve been traveling; I’ve just been too busy tweeting and ‘gramming my way across the USA. But don’t worry: I’ve actually written a handful of travel blogs for everything I’ve been up to—they’re just in my handwritten journal. I’ll transfer them online here soon enough, but in the meantime, I wanted to share with you what I’m feeling now.
Los Angeles is supposed to be the city that either makes or breaks you and here I am, laid bare, ready for the next adventure. And excited about it

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.

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.

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 went during gay pride and it was an okay environment. Seemed cool and friendly but the DJ wasn't the best. Enjoyed one of the other gay clubs in Prague a bit more. No question though that this place is central and easy to get to - certainly a plus!
