Sunny Toronto

CANADA | Sunday, 21 May 2023 | Views [48]

For most Canadians, Toronto is their version of New York City. In a few days I'm starting my big African adventure, and the cheapest flight I could find to South Africa is from Toronto so it gave me the perfect excuse to come here. I had never entered ... Read more >

Geocaching Day Tour

BERMUDA | Thursday, 4 May 2023 | Views [191]

It's my final full day in Bermuda, and I'm always really hard on myself when I set a goal. 100 geocaches I wanted to find in Bermuda in a week here, and I'm leaving tomorrow. Until today I'd searched for over a hundred but had only found 63. Last night ... Read more >


BERMUDA | Tuesday, 2 May 2023 | Views [182]

The water screams with electric blue. Pastel-coloured homes gleam serenity upon the most jaded traveller. Wind drifts across your face with that calm feeling. Bermuda is truly a magical place! Juan de Bermudez, who discovered Bermuda in 1505, is who ... Read more >

Bermuda, Ahoy!

BERMUDA | Saturday, 29 Apr 2023 | Views [195]

"You can go to heaven if you want to. I'd rather stay in Bermuda." -Mark Twain For the first time I've taken a journey where geocaching is my dominant goal as there are a lot of them in Bermuda. Upon landing yesterday on my Delta flight, I immediately ... Read more >

National Mall...Continued

USA | Thursday, 6 Apr 2023 | Views [172]

The National Mall...I just can't get enough of it. D.C. simply has loads and loads (or in American terms, lots and lots) to see and do. It was warm and sunny today just like yesterday. Tickets for the Washington Monument were again booked out today. ... Read more >

Arlington and the National Mall

USA | Wednesday, 5 Apr 2023 | Views [126]

My world has been thrown into a tail spin this past month. My Dad had a stroke nearly a month ago right after I finished an epic journey seeing komodo dragons and swimming with manta rays. That combined with the fact that I hadn't seen my family since ... Read more >

Hawaiian Island Sampler

USA | Tuesday, 16 Aug 2022 | Views [158]

Aloha! As a child I always wished for my mother to take me to where she was born. Strung like a forming bracelet of islands deep in the Pacific blue, Hawaii sits over a volcanic hotspot in the Earth's surface. Flying to New Zealand with Hawaiian Airlines ... Read more >

Desert Nostalgia

USA | Saturday, 30 Jul 2022 | Views [192]

Phoenix is a huge city! Driving from Glendale to Chandler (northwest to southeast) takes the better part of two hours, so I can only imagine how long it would take to walk or ride my bike all over town, especially in triple-digit heat. Arizona called ... Read more >

California Coast by Thumb

USA | Wednesday, 6 Nov 2019 | Views [294]

What a past few days this has been? Is there ever a dull moment on my travels? Even if there is I can make a cool story out of it. I'm in California for a couple of weeks to do some filming for Fearless Journey, as we've finally got funding! From Pape'ete ... Read more >

A Globetrotter in Harlem

USA | Friday, 30 Nov 2018 | Views [406]

Waking up in East Harlem, commonly called Spanish Harlem, I was ready to tackle my globetrotting spirit again. Walking through Manhattan you see how things change quickly. In Lower Manhattan you'll see guys with tailored suits and girls with designer ... Read more >

Grilly Philly

USA | Sunday, 11 Jun 2017 | Views [937]

Over the weekend, I'd visit my sister in a city that's famous for cream cheese and being the birthplace of the USA. Philadelphia, that is. My third sister, Ashley works at a law firm and lives with her boyfriend, Juan, who is from Colombia. Before our ... Read more >

Maple Syrup & Quaker Oats

I'm gonna regret not trying poutine (fries topped with gravy and cheese) in Quebec! Looks like I'll have to journey north again. As I hitchhiked through the gorgeous Quebec countryside, it took several lifts to finally reach the US border. A local took ... Read more >

My Family

USA | Sunday, 14 May 2017 | Views [675] | Comments [1]

As often as I travel, one may assume I don't have any family. My friends across Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere, as dear as they are, have never met any of my family. For the first time in 15 years, all six of us would convene for Mother's Day.... Read more >

After many years, I'm back in a town I lived in as a young boy: Easton, Pennsylvania. Easton is rather nondescript although it's one of the oldest towns in the US. Home to maybe 25,000 people, the most iconic landmarks are the Dixie Cup and the Crayola ... Read more >

Territorial Vineyards & Wine Co.

USA | Friday, 24 Jan 2014 | Views [843]

Territorial Vineyards & Wine Co. is a fabulous wine bar in the heart of the Whiteaker District. Before tonight I'd never even been to a wine bar but as a warm up to my coming-soon time in Spain I thought I'd sit at the bar, order a bottle, and indulge.... Read more >

Friends, coffee, and Seahawk Fever!

USA | Friday, 17 Jan 2014 | Views [1191]

I'm on a skidaddle; a "Seattle Skidaddle" that is, filled with friends, 12-cent coffee, Seahawk fever, and Ethiopian girls coming at me marvelling at my jersey. Brian and Bree picked me up last night and dropped me at the Green Tortoise Hostel, located ... Read more >

My 29th, Seattle style!

USA | Friday, 20 Sep 2013 | Views [1574] | Comments [1]

Today I'm 29, and I'm in Seattle! There aren't many places better where I can celebrate! And there couldn't be a better friend and her family who could make it special! This morning I was up extra early due to Bree having an orientation at the University ... Read more >

Oh Canada, Here I am

CANADA | Wednesday, 18 Sep 2013 | Views [906]

For days I bugged Brian and Bree for us to take a trip to Victoria. Admittedly, logistics are a bit tough for getting there from Seattle. First you have to get across Puget Sound (either by auto ferry or via bridge in Tacoma) and then drive about two ... Read more >

Today I learned an important and powerful travel lesson. It was a mostly chill-out morning with a little drizzle and we sat around the house for awhile. These past few days I've been anxious to go to Victoria as a pre-birthday trip but Brian said we're ... Read more >


USA | Monday, 16 Sep 2013 | Views [1054]

Over the course of my travels I've stayed with many lovely people and many lovely families. The other day, Brian and I pulled up to the home of Bree and her family with roses and a bottle of wine in hand. Bree is Brian's friend. Her younger sister is ... Read more >

The Emerald City

USA | Saturday, 14 Sep 2013 | Views [1527]

Seattle! The city of Starbucks, loads of rain, a great vibe, and even more greenery. The Emerald City is a gorgeous city! The "American Amazon" in the words of a wise traveller. I simply love it here! I was here three years ago and now I'm back. Brian, ... Read more >
