Jamaica we have a bobsled team

    0
In a remote part of the world, I once heard the phrase "a picture is worth nine words". I did not believe this until I took this picture in Jamaica several years back....I think its clear what nine words this encapsulates; "Welcome to Jamaica and have a nice day....mon".When my buddy Ethan says he wants to go to Jamica and I can get a discount...

Symbiosis eco-village in Tofino

    0
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...

Creating Launch Images for iOS apps

    0
While working on my latest app, PomoTracker, I was trying to come up with a simple way to create launch images for the app. Since I needed a total of 7 images, I searched for a tool that may make the creation simple. I haven’t come across anything yet but I have at least simplified the process a bit. The first view controller that loads...

App Challenge Episode 2: Attack of the Feature Creeps

    0
I demoed the current version of TouchCase to an attorney this week and received valuable feedback. While looking at how the tool would fit into his current workflow, we compared it to the software that he was currently using, a web-based application. He showed many of the functions that he could perform using his current tool of choice. The session was eye-opening to say the...

Hello 911….Yes, there is a giant man burning in the middle of the desert

    0
Yes, that's right. I couldn't stay away. I had to go back for round 3 of Burning Man. And this time....the desert won (I'm not really sure what that means...I just thought it was a good opener). Things got a little crazy this time...a little too crazy, if you know what I mean (prob not). And somehow I ended up going for a week. Yes...

Be True & Burn

I went to Burning Man for the first time in 2012. It was just 4 francophones guys in a RV but we ended up forming an international camp of almost 20 people. We went not really organized but come back completely happy and tired.  ABOUT THE VIDEO Filming Burning Man is the ultimate challenge. First because it’s dangerous for your gear. And second, it is...

I know what you're thinking...."Where the hell has this guy been? I've missed his hysterical insulting rants of my and others' cultures." Well, I've been in NYC. But I'm not here today to talk about the city, I'm here to talk about it's friendly island neighbor, Long Island. I recently had the opportunity to spend a couple days in a couple different location, Babylon (somewhere in the...

The Magic Bus

Hitchiking USA for 4 months took me and my friend Simon to places we never planned on going. It also put on our path this School Bus running on Veggie oil in which we stayed for 3 weeks across Colorado and Utah with a group of enlightened hippies. ABOUT THE VIDEO This video is so precious because it is the first travel film I ever...

Remote Year Libertatem

    0
I applied to Remote Year twice. The first time was after I had just completed a year and a half living in London and Thailand, and I was having a mild panic attack about moving to one place, having one job and staying put for a while. So I applied before I even graduated with my MBA and never heard back. Womp. Fast forward to...

I am….me

I actually quite like myself….are weallowedto say that? I mean, I haven’t always and at this point in time I’m carrying waaaay too much weight than I’m happy with (basically having too many amazing goodbye drinks and dinners with friends) but personality-wise, I’m pretty comfortable with who I am. If you had asked me if I liked myself six months ago, you would have received...

Week 21: A [Luang Pra]Bang’in Good Time

    0
Week 21 of Remote Year started off with running some errands that I probably should have done before embarking on my year: getting my yellow fever vaccine. But, pro tip… it’s actually a lot cheaper when done abroad, and as a cheapskate, I always appreciate the discount. Sadie, Isaac and I got together and headed across town in search of a travel clinic to receive...

Many moons ago, when I signed up for this Remote Year program (was there a time before Remote Year?), our July itinerary was listed as Istanbul, Turkey. Then some bombs went off and Remote Year decided to change the itinerary and send us to the country that I can only assume was created in America's image. No I'm not talking about Canada, I'm talking about...

Japan: Tour D’Horizon

From standing sushi to sitting elbow-to-elbow with locals in the ramen shop, Japan is a trip for the taste buds. Sprinkled in every direction are amazing restaurants, bars, lounges, cafes, tiny hole in the walls, and street markets giving Japan some serious culinary cred.Kyoto, my home for this month, is a city of a thousand temples, and shrines with masterpieces of religious architecture. Even as...
