Andalusia Adventure - Cordoba, Granada, Seville
I visited Spain about ten years ago and absolutely loved it. It’s been on my list of countries to get back to over the last year but it was only a few weeks ago that I finally made my return visit. When I was in Barcelona all those years ago I was enamored ...

An attempt at a 'Best Of' list
It's a bit of a rainy afternoon and I'm exhausted from getting my ass handed to me at bootcamp this morning so I figured I'd do a little writing because I’ve been trying to come up with a best-of list for Cannes and it’s surroundings. After four months here...

Cannes we catch up?
I’ve been reminded that my last post was in March. Yeah, well... life’s gotten to feel pretty ‘normal’ so I’ve not been doing well to recount the goings on here in the south of France. I guess that doesn’t bode well for me being able to actually keep up blo...

Sur le pont d'Avignon
A few weeks ago I decided I needed a weekend away from the sea so I pulled out my much loved Lonely Planet France book and started flipping through the pages. The number of destinations that remain on my 'to see in France' list is quite large so I had to in...

Working out with the French
The french lessons continue and it's slowly, and I mean sloooooowly, seeping in. I still have this hope that I'll wake up one day and suddenly be able to converse in French. Obviously that's not going to happen, but I can still have dreams, right? This week...

Joie de Vivre - 2016, I'm Ready!
2015 is really over, wow, that was fast! It's unbelievable to me to think that one year ago I was wrapping up work and about to set off on an adventure. An adventure that was planned as three weeks in South America, then back to the States, then to Europe, ...

Adventuring through the Galapagos - on the cheap
Happy New Year! 2015 has come to a close and 2016 is now upon us. My laziness took over and I didn't get my full Galapagos post edited and posted over the last week so I figured I'd just go ahead and post it now. Something interesting about 2016 is hopefull...

Ecuador (in brief) Love Life
The last major trip of 2015 is in the books! With a few final passport stamps to round out the year I’m now giving that bad boy a rest for a few weeks. I feel a little naked without it on me and everyday needing to make sure that it’s still where I left it ...

Ecuador bound
After a brief three weeks back in the States the passport is back out and my bag is packed. Next destination… Ecuador and the Galapagos. Iguanas, tortoises, seals, and all of Darwin’s creatures, here I come! I am quite sad that Lonesome George is no longer ...
