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

Bali is a big island. There are a lot of things to do, and a lot of interesting places to see. Kuta Beach is the most popular destination, but it is also the most expensive. If you leave Kuta, the cost of living anywhere else on the island will be much lower. Only 15 minutes …

LASIK – What I Like About It, and What I Don’t

More than two weeks have passed since I had corrective eye surgery (LASIK). I was always intrigued by the results of the surgery. I was in college when I first met someone who had the procedure done.

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 …

A Great Gift For Book Lovers

When I decided to write this post I wasnt thinking about getting a gift for anyone. Only after I typed out the title did I realize that it would make a great gift. I’ll keep this short: it’s an embosser. I picked one up some time ago on Amazon. Every time I get a new …

Great Book: Real Artists DON’T Starve

I picked up Jeff Goins’ book after I heard him on the Art of Charm podcast. I knew about Jeff Goins before the interview however, I’ve been a follower of his blog for several years now. Actually, long before I decided to become a writer myself. His material is always great, however his book Real …
