A Friend’s Farewell

    0
Wise words from The World's Dumbest Traveler This one time in Colombia, I buried a friend who was still alive… He was a good man.

    0
Wise words from The World's Dumbest Traveler A few weeks back I went to the Central Restaurant in Lima, Peru for a buddy’s birthday.

Wise words from The World's Dumbest Traveler 2017. What a year it was.
