Tangerines and Toilet Money

One of the things I miss the most living outside of the US for the past 4 years is the availability of semi-decent, free toilets (but not necessarily the huge gap between bathroom doors that is inevitably present in all US public bathrooms) when travelling. My toilet anxiety can be chalked up to

That time we found a sweet secluded skin diving spot in the Bahamas

On one of those vacations, a group of friends and I went to Nassau in the Bahamas. We had an amazing time (except for the crazy blister-hives I developed), and had the luck of finding a sweet secluded snorkeling and skin diving spot right off the shore. It had the added bonus of having a

That time all our food was eaten by birds at Lake Powell

One particular Lake Powell vacation we were camping out at Lone Rock Beach. We had gone out for the day exploring around the lake and it was the late afternoon by the time we were heading back to camp. Our campsite was right on the edge of the lake so we

That time I chased a sloth up a tree in the Amazon

It was a guys trip, my dad, brother, and I. The first part of the trip was in the Cuzco area visiting Machu Picchu, an amazing place. If you ever make it to Peru, make sure to visit both Machu Picchu and the Amazon, both are equally incredible. Let me first get you oriented to our location, we

That time I was covered in a strange rash in the Bahamas

On one of my trips, a group of friends and I went to the Bahamas. We were having a great time, when around day 3 my upper body started breaking out in this weird blister-rash that seriously itched liked crazy. It started out in just a few places, but throughout the day it started spreading all
