Manuel Antonio National Park: Monkeys, Raccoons, and Thieves – OH MY!

“Beware of the white faced monkeys. They work together with the raccoons to steal your things.” I rolled my eyes. Yeah, right. How can there be such a thing as interspecies cahoots?

Sleeping sunbathers… Continue reading Manuel Antonio National Park: Monkeys, Raccoons, and Thieves – OH MY!

My Friend Fernando – Memories at the Ollantaytambo Ruins in Peru

“Como te llamas? (What do they call you?)” I asked the fidgety, energetic 7 year old in front of us. “Me llamo Fernaaaaaaaando!” as he flashed a not-so-toothy smile. I wondered for a moment if the tooth fairy visited this part of the world. I am always impressed by how energetic kids can be hopping… Continue reading My Friend Fernando – Memories at the Ollantaytambo Ruins in Peru

SantaCon 2013: Rampaging Through Austin’s Streets

It has been officially banned in the streets of Manhattan so thousands of Santa-clad boozehounds filled the streets of Brooklyn this year in protest (and in merriment and boozing). But in Austin?

Why Travel Friends are Like One Night Stands

...I didn’t even ask her name. She was a bright, bubbly Aussie (some of my favorite people to party with) with a face that lit up with more freckles than I could count. Her boisterous laugh is what caught me. She was going to be fun. We shared an evening and beers together and when… Continue reading Why Travel Friends are Like One Night Stands

My Coffee Connoisseur Meal Made Me Moan at Finca Rosa Blanca, Costa Rica

I’m a moaner. Not like that, you perv. I find myself moaning awkwardly when eating a meal that knows exactly what my taste buds need. It doesn’t even have to be mind-blowing but for some reason the moment that I have deliciousness touch my flavor receptors, a mind explosion happens and it just comes out.… Continue reading My Coffee Connoisseur Meal Made Me Moan at Finca Rosa Blanca, Costa Rica
