Huka Falls are a set of torrential waterfalls on the North Island of New Zealand. In the photos below, you get the fell for the water’s pace. What’s even crazier is that you can ride a jetboat down this thing. What’s a jetboat? Oh just a teeny tiny little speed boat that can navigate on only 4 inches of water. In true New Zealand spirit, Kiwis drive these little devils, loaded with screaming tourists, around like there isn’t a rock […]
Weston is a tiny little town, just outside Kansas City, Missouri. With a population of 1,641, it’s absolutely the kind of town where everyone knowns each other’s names. First, we stopped in at the Weston Red Barn Farm. You can pick apples, pet animals, and shop at their general store. Then we grabbed a bite to eat at Green Dirt Farm. This place is great! It’s a deli and sheep milk creamery. What’s better than a sheep’s milk grilled cheese […]
Happy belated birthday to me! I spent my 30th birthday celebrating with a quick road trip around Colorado. I started in Denver, stayed at the Aloft, ate kimchi fries at Stout Street Social right next door, took an uber to Linger to enjoy a few pints at the rooftop bar, and had an awesome paella dinner at El Five (that had an awesome view of the city).
Spain is such a beautiful and distinct country. It’s beautiful and dirty and covered in graffiti and good food. Although I was only there for a few days, I can’t wait to get back. It’s definitely the place to travel to with friends because it’s so chill. We all shared a really great Airbnb, with a great location. It had a shared rooftop with a hot tub and couches. This space was perfect for enjoying a bottle of wine and some […]

I recently spent a few days in NYC. It’s always a good time. After taking the train in from Katonah, we plowed our way through Grand Central. I’ve been there a few times before, but I don’t think I’ve spent much time looking up. The Celestial Ceiling, finished in 1913, was accidentally painted backwards (switching the east and west). In 1945, the mural was entirely covered with boards made of cement and asbestos, painted with an updated, but still backwards, version […]
If you have 24 hours to kill in Miami, here’s a few suggestions around South Beach: Take a dip in the ocean along the 4 miles of beach. Kill two birds with one stone, grab brunch and watch a drag show at the same time at The Palace. Stroll along Ocean Drive to take in the weirdness and the entertainers. We stopped in at Ocean’s Ten and really enjoyed the band. They only have 2 stars on yelp, but it really […]
Lollapalooza is mayhem, it’s a madhouse, and every year I find myself back there. This go-round it was 4 days long. I got to see Radiohead, M83, Bastille, Big Grams (Big Boi and Phantogram), Miike Snow, Frightened Rabbit, Leon Bridges, Chris Stapleton, Two Door Cinema Club, St. Lucia, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Silversun Pickups, Haim, Bloc Party, and LCD Soundsystem. That’s right. I said Radiohead. It was my first time seeing them, and I sure as heck hope it’s not my […]
