"...In a place where expats seemed to outstrip Antiguans, there I was. Just another gringo floating in a diluted sea of even more gringos – until I awoke with the startling realization that my only cultural encounter had come from attending a local mass that in actuality turned out to be a funeral....So I made a concerted effort to do what I do best – defy years of “stranger danger” lectures by reaching out to, well…strangers. In this case, the Guatemalan kind. Not the pack of muscled Australians I’d been eyeing in the way of someone who’d been not-so-purposefully celibate since October..." #visitguatemala #antigua

A few weeks ago I did something completely out of my comfort zone. I climbed a 13,000 foot volcano while visiting Central America for the first time. I knew it would be tasking and grueling and I knew I'd feel like a true adventurer climbing to its peak.

I recently partnered up with #GPSmyCity for a beer crawl through Brooklyn. GPSmyCity is an app that features self-guided walking tours in over 470 cities around the world. The cool new app took me and a couple of friends to some of the best off-the-beaten path craft beer spots the borough has to offer!

I spent some time in #Venice last month and ended up accidentally crashing a Gondola Race Awards Ceremony on the small island of #Burano. It was one of the coolest local experiences of my life!
