Cape Town – Where to Eat and Drink?

After visiting Durban, I spent just over a week in the Cape. Most of my family resides here and this is where I grew up from the age of about 3 until I was 10. It was emotional, beautiful, and marvelous to once again be in such a familiar place. I named places nearby and …

Quebec City – Winter Wonderland

It has been a very long time since I last posted anything, but I have made a new years resolution to post at least one post each week to catchup with where I have been over the last year and a half; beginning with the most recent and working backward. Over the Christmas holidays I …

Durban – Food Must Try & Gentrification Hot Spot

Personally, Durban is not a typical place I would recommend for just anyone. Unlike Cape Town, Durban is more an acquired taste. There are some great beaches, shopping malls, uShaka Marine World, and some historic sites to visit. As I was only there for a few days, here are my top 2 new experiences in …

Exploring Frankfurt Pt. 3

On Saturday, the coolest day this week, we decided to take a 100min boat cruise along the Main. As we walked down Berger Str. we stopped to look at the weekend market (every Wednesday and Saturday - but Saturday has more vendors). The market is called the Bornheimer Wochenmarkt. After looking around to see what they …

Exploring Frankfurt Pt. 2

After my dad arrived on Friday, we headed back downtown for another day of exploring. This time we headed down to the water. On our way we walked along Berger Str. again. All of the restaurants and the mouth watering smells in the air, coupled with local stores, compels me to walk down this street each …

A Weekend Exploring the Sierra Gorda

There were a few places I had to check off my list before leaving Mexico and one of them that was accessible and inexpensive was the Sierra Gorda. Part of the Sierra Gorda is in the state of Queretaro, and although it takes some time to drive through it and visit places, it is well worth the …

Puerto Escondido

After Christmas there seems to be a lot more holidays and long weekends. After Semana Santa you have only a short few weeks and then another long weekend. Myself and a friend decided we wanted to go to the beach, somewhere inexpensive and relaxing. We didn't want to go back to Puerta Vallarta, so we …

Semana Santa – Week 2

For the second week of Semana Santa, I was lucky enough to go stay with my aunt and uncle and a few of their friends in Puerta Vallarta. We visited many fun beaches, I checked off an item on my bucket list (The Hidden Beach), saw many dolphins and whales, and ate delicious food!
