For the past four centuries, Indian tourism has had a shadow cast over it by one building and four syllables;TheTajMa--halFirst thing to say, it was 112 degrees. Yes, one hundred and fuckin twelve degrees...And that was in Celsius. To tell you the truth, I felt like overall it looked more impressive from a distance than up close.It looked much, much smaller when I got up...

A visit to an Indian carnival….kind of

    0
I had the privelege? of visiting what one might call a carnival.....an Indian carnival. They had all the usual carnival activities that you would expect, a ferris wheel, a merry-go-round, etc. except they were all miniature sized and were hand operated. A man stood there and pushed the "ferris wheel" around. Wow, what a thrill.Then of course, we had the woman dancing with giant pots...

I will tell you, its not cause of the office food...I don't have a lot of new interesting pictures because I have been working 14 hours a day, which is why I'm paid the big bucks. I will,...

India explained

    0
India can be very confusing to a first time westerner; so full of magical sights, smells and cows. To help this theoretical first time India traveler, I have compiled a list of some things that will help to understand the culture, climate and driving rules, to avoid death.Cars will not stop for pedestrians (or other cars). It may seem as if they are ignoring lane...

Time is running out

I come back to the States in less than a week (I know you're all very excited to see me).The last few days I have spent in Jerusalem. Most of my time was spent in the old city, which is this extremely confusing maze of alleyways that is completely walled in. Most of the alleys our filled with shops. I'd say there around two thousand...

If you have any spare time, you should check out Jordan.In Wadi Rum we went off road through the desert for an entire day. Our tour guide Ali (Everyone I have met in Arab countries have been name Muhammad, Achmed, or Ali) was hilarious, but pretty crazy behind the wheel. He was flying up and down sand dunes, weaving in and out of rock, and...

Week 38: Flying Solo in Bali

    0
Back in Croatia, I booked a trip to Bali. A solo trip. I had only done solo travel for a couple of days to a yoga retreat in the Bahamas in the past, and was excited to spend time decompressing, relaxing, and yes, working. I decided to spend a few days in Ubud, the prime digital nomad locale in the mountains of Bali, and a...

If you’re coming on this crazy year-long adventure with me, I’m assuming you’re probably going to want to know a little more about me then what you read in the about section of this blog. So here are a few facts about me that might be useful/interesting/etc.: I am 100% Croatian, bilingual and can’t really imagine my life any other way. Both of my parents immigrated...

Water, Water Everywhere – Floating Villages, Thingyan Festival, and Typhoons in Kompong Pluk, Cambodia & Inle Lake, Myanmar

    0
One of the most eye opening living arrangements that I have come across in South East Asia are the floating villages. Floating villages have been around for hundreds of years in Asia and have typically popped up as a result of land scarcity. I have now seen floating villages and stilt houses in Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar given the number of rivers, lakes, and...

“ ‘Real artists ship.’ “ — Steve JobsCould it be that the difference between a generalist and a dabbler is just saying ‘this is as done as it’s going to be’ and shipping the work?I think maybe yes. If you look at Jefferson, da Vinci, Jobs — they shipped. A lot. I think the dabbler moves on when he’s 95% complete, so he never gets the completion, satisfaction, and feedback from...

Time to SPLIT

How is it the end of December already?  These last few months have flown by with all of this traveling.  After spending three months in South East Asia, it was time to move to the next continent - Europe.  December ushered in a new location (Split, Croatia) and cooler weather. The cool 50+ temperatures were a nice change from the scorching heat of Asia.  December...

Fall-ing Back

I woke up this morning to the sunlight competing with the color from the leaves of the trees. It smelled like chimney smoke, cinnamon, and incense. I felt like a child again: walking around the neighborhood with my pumpkin filled with candy and a few tricks up my sleeve.Work brings me to St. Louis, a town I don't get to visit often, but when I...

Prague...in a ParagraphIt’s taken far too long to write. One day I’ll properly post all of my pictures and travel videos, but to quickly summarize my month in Prague: it lived up to the hype.I worked from a mansion, visited a castle, hiked up to a tower, danced on a boat, embraced my inner Beyonce while performing bollywood from a sandbox and celebrated each of those...

Symbiosis eco-village in Tofino

My wanders trough the Canadian West coast eventually took me to Vancouver island where I hitchhike by myself for a while. Eventually, I made it to the cute little town of Tofino where I spent a week in a somehow hidden eco-village “Pool’s Land”. A place where everybody is welcome to stay for free if you give back to the community. My participation of course...
