La Paz: First Impressions

    0
Buuuuuuenos diiiiiias! Let's leave Argentina behind for the moment, with its posh high-heel shoes and endless coups, the empanadas and well-groomed llamas, its mounds of meats and Tinder cheats. All the cosmopolitan wine bars, the gallerias and contraseña speakeasies, the J-Crew Gauchos and the Andean vineyards, the drum circley gritty firecrackey union protests and entwined snake-sultry moonlit tango dancers spinning their accordion tales of doomed...

Packing for the Trip

    0
I was very happy to see this bag on my doorstep today because Rick Steve’s claimed that shipping would take 10 business days. That would have made the bag arrive on May 26th and leave me not very much time to pack. Considering I am leaving on Saturday, May 28th. I am planning on taking 2 carry-on bags and packing as light as I can....

Eat Your Heart Out, La Paz Edition

    0
Fair warning: eating in La Paz without getting sick is a tough proposition. I've already covered the various ways in which the city/country is trying to kill you, but if you're up for an adventure, are seeking a city with a ton of personality and culture, and have the guts (literally) to experiment with different cuisines, La Paz is a do-not-miss experience. What we found interesting is...

Iguazu Falls, aka Paradise

    0
Waterfalls, rainbows and butterflies.  EVERYWHERE.  Iguazu Falls. A few weeks back when I was in Buenos Aires, I took a trip to Iguazu Falls, which borders Brazil and Argentina.  The trip was nothing short of spectacular.  There are anywhere between 150 to 300 waterfalls in Iguazu depending on water levels.  It’s paradise. Way on the left is Brazil.  On the right is the Argentina side which...

My apartment in La Paz, Bolivia

We have one large building with about 30 Remotes, another building with about 15 Remotes, and then the rest of the Remotes are spread out in random apartments.I live in one of the random apartments. My roommate and I are the only Remotes in this building, the the closest people to us are about an...

Week 11: Sensing La Paz

    0
The last seven days have been full of sensory experiences in La Paz. I feel more at home in this city, comfortable with the altitude, and generally in a good groove. Sights I did a Red Cap walking tour with a few Remotes on Saturday, during which we walked around much of La Paz. We learned about San Pedro prison, made infamous by Marching Powder: inmates...

Single Digit Days

    0
It’s officially hitting me. This whole year-long adventure thing starts in 9 DAYS! And as excited as I am, I’m also about the same amount anxious. I’m anxious in the good way – eagerly awaiting the new challenges and people. And I’m anxious in the not so good way – randomly going through a mental list of to-dos, trying to think of things I’ve forgotten. I...

History, Argentina, and the Dirty War – Part 1

    0
Argentina has a long and fascinating history dating back to the Spanish conquest of South America. But it is much more recent history that has loomed over my time here. It’s not just in the museums or memorials. You see it in the squares and parks, in the street art, in the ramshackle protest villages and on hastily made signs outside the federal government buildings. In...

I have a goal.By the time the V3 of the Tortuga comes out (we don't have firm release dates yet, but I have a general time frame), I will be down to a carry-on backpack and a personal item.Y'all - it's harder than it sounds. Especially for long-term travel.I've always been a carry-on-only traveler, but I've also never traveled indefinitely. I packed a lot of just-in-case...

Trip Report – New York City

This will be pretty brief, but as many of you know I was in New York City last week on business all week. It was all around a blast. Just wanted to share a few brief photos from my week. Sorry about the quality, I took these with my phone rather than bringing my real camera along. Long story short while this was my 8th...

#15 Margarita Time

So a birthday with Commonwealth is always going to involve four elements:1. Drink.2. Food.3. Dancing.4. LOTS of Noise.I’ve entitled this piece Margarita Time because not only did we drink a couple of bottles of red wine over a meal at Pampas Bar and Grill just a short walk from our apartments, we also sank 33 Margaritas (& not everyone in the group was drinking them...

The Surfing Secret That I Can’t Keep a Secret Anymore

Wise words from The World's Dumbest Traveler I have a confession to make… And this one is a doozy. I’ve been holding this in for a long time now. 25 years to be exact. It’s something I’ve always wanted to share with the world, but could never quite muster up the courage. Every time I’ve tried to tell someone there has always been something that...

Week 26: Czeching Out and A Visit to the Motherland (Moscow, Russia)

I knew I wanted to go to Moscow during our time in Europe, and avoiding the 14-hour bus ride from Prague to Belgrade definitely seemed worth it. So, I booked my flight, arranged to stay with my aunt, uncle, and cousin at their apartment, and said “Čau” to Prague. All the Feels The first thing that strikes me about Moscow is how big it is....

Uber Drivers Are Side Hustle Inspiration

    0
In the past year, I’ve used many modes of transportation. While the opportunities to speak with pilots, bus drivers or train conductors are rare, Uber drivers are frequently open to conversation. Typically our talks are about our respective hometowns, what the city is like, tips about venues to see and me constantly checking the route to see if we’re going the right way. The best rides are when...
