My Favorite Places for Quiet, Cozy, and Absolutely Disconnected Getaways

I had the idea to write this blog post after my friend asked me for help deciding his next vacation. He wanted to go to a quiet place where he could be disconnected from the internet, where he could be alone and away from people, and where he could read all day undisturbed. I gave …

Running: A New Route in Kreuzberg

Running is one of my favorite ways to see a new city. When I arrived in Berlin the weather was nearing 100 degrees, and I held off on running for several days. I was disappointed that the weather was keeping me inside, and after a week I could no longer wait and ran 5K in …

Moving to Berlin

Moving to Berlin was in many ways a last minute decision, but at the same time, I moved to a place that I was familiar with. This was very different from moving to Austin, a place I had never visited prior. I didn’t have to leave Austin. If I wasn’t so convinced that there existed …

On Writing: Bertrand Russell’s Autobiography (With Quotes)

It’s rare that I’ll find a book that truly captures the writing process and the struggle of trying to express complicated ideas clearly on paper.

My Passport (2008-2018)

With my upcoming trip to Tanzania at the end of June, I needed to renew my passport. I consider my passport as a souvenir, not just a travel document. Whenever I tell people about all the places I’ve traveled to, they want to see the stamps that I collected along the way. So I decided …

The Case For Working Remotely

Yesterday, I attended a seminar hosted by Gerry Robert, author of Millionaire Mindset, about writing a business book and using it to break into public speaking, grow company sales, and become an expert in your field.

How I Use 168 Hours of My Week

Since I moved to Austin in February, my life and schedule changed completely. I started a new part-time job, which means I now work more than 50 hours a week. I still write every day, and that can take up anywhere between two to four hours a day. I’m new to Austin, so I like …

Moto Adventures Around The World

I finally got a real motorcycle after more than 3 years of not having one   I moved to Austin last week. The first order of business was finding a new mode of transportation. Public transportation just doesn’t cut it in Austin. What would be a 12-minute ride in a car is over an hour …
