Toss & Travel – A Review

Recently I was asked to try out a new product from a dermatologist that is specifically geared toward travelers. It’s called “Toss & Travel.” I’ll cut to the chase – the stuff works!

Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time, I fell in love. But it ended. Badly. I was told that it was over and that the failure was my fault, and mine alone, and for months I was a destroyed person. Then, slowly, I learned that the relationship had been built on lies. I had been lied to about […]

Nap Nap In a Tuk-Tuk

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I love a good nap. My day usually isn’t complete unless I get one in. They aren’t particularly long, but they are invaluable for recharging. A little snooze for 15 or 20 minutes has proven to be a great way to recharge my batteries, and keep my […]

A Tale of Two Guides

Last week I had a meeting to start laying out my next big adventure, and it brought back memories of years past. The biggest issue I’m going to be facing is transportation. I travel on a tight schedule, and buses just don’t get the job done. In these situations, I’ve hired a driver to help […]
