A Day In Chefchaouen : Getting Lost in the Blue City

Part 1. RIP Camera. It's been real. July 1, 2018. This week I've learned that I don't actually have athletes' foot on my hands. I have pompholyx! Which basically means that I've stressed myself to the point that I've given myself warts. Why was I so distressed that my body decided to foster new forms of eczema? We'd just arrived to one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and my brand spankin' new ...

Real Alcázar of Seville : Spain’s Piece of Westeros

June 20, 2018. We've been in Seville, Spain for just over two days now. I've developed a gnarly infection on my big toe, rendering it the shade of a plum. I've also got athlete's foot and have been fiddling with it, and now I'm pretty sure I have athletes foot on my hand. Also, no one told me Seville is hot. Like really hot. The heat index is somewhere between "Oh my god" and "What the fuck." It's like ...

Quinta da Regaleira : A Fairytale in Sintra, Portugal

June 13, 2018.  Today we leave Lisbon, for a day trip to to the magical fairytale town of Sintra, Portugal. Though it's only an hour away by train, you are somehow transported from a bustling European city to one of the seven kingdoms of Westeros. Sintra is tucked away into the woodlands, filled with Hogwarts-sesque castles nestled into the nooks and crannies of the surrounding mountains. In the 18th ...

Lagos, Portugal : Beautiful Beaches, All You Can Eat Sushi, & Cultural Heritage

June 15, 2018. Days 7 & 8.  It was over 4 hours by bus from Lisbon to Lagos. While very touristy, Lagos proved to be a delightful little beachy town. Raspy buskers singing Janis Joplin echo'd through the streets, while a mix of nomadic crust-wooks and old-money vacationers lined the sidewalks to listen. We arrived in the evening, and hadn't eaten anything since breakfast - half a tin of sardines on ...

A Weekend in Death Valley and Tall Tales of the Infamous Black Card

If I can find a super cheap flight deal, I'll go pretty much anywhere, and that's exactly what happened in this instance. I took advantage of a 90% Spirit Airlines flash sale, and the total cost of my roundtrip ticket from Washington DC (IAD) to Las Vegas, NV was $67. This is about the cost of dinner for two at a mediocre chain restaurant so I might as well go to Death Valley, right? As always with ...

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir : New Jersey’s Hidden Gem

I'm not that big a fan of New Jersey. You have to pay to go on the beach, you can't turn left, I don't like pork roll...there's really no reason for me to ever go to New Jersey. So when my girlfriend recommends we take a weekend trip to her home state, I'm overwhelmingly under-enthused. A full afternoon deep into my rabbit hole of hangover, I don't really want to do much of anything. Especially not ...
