Barcelona Siesta: The Beauty of Spanish Culture

By | August 7th, 2012|Categories: Barcelona, Spain|Tags: , |

Barcelona has so much beauty: the arts, beaches to the tapas. But the most raw form of beauty is in it's laid back lifestyle starting with the Barcelona Siesta. You can feel the chill attitude of people, their laxed ways not found in the other half of the world. The Spaniards know how to live. [...]

When in Barcelona..

By | August 4th, 2012|Categories: Barcelona|

..do as Barcelonians do! This is my first time in Spain. I've talked to dozens of my friends and have heard nothing but rave reviews of this quaint city. They all give me lists of things to do, museums to visit, Gaudi & Dali sites, tapas to try, wine to sip and so on. While [...]

August Jetsetting to Honduras & Spain

By | July 26th, 2012|Categories: Dharma Bum, Honduras, Spain|Tags: , |

  It's that time of year, my travel bug has activated beyond control in which no bug spray can diminish (c'mon, laugh! ha - ha). And so therefore, I must not fight against the wind and go with my heart, pack my rucksack and jet set. Or my preferable term, Gyp-set! Yay-ya!! I've gone on [...]

Bad Girls do it Well.                     I'm rocking out to M.I.A's latest hit "Bad Girls". Catchy beat & a visually exotic music video filmed in Morocco, the #1 country currently on my To-Travel list. Her latest controversy was her middle-finger at the Superbowl half-time performance with Madonna [...]

Euro:: Still a great time to Travel

By | December 6th, 2010|Categories: Europe|

Remember 5 years ago when it seemed nearly impossible to travel to Europe because of the dollar being so weak? Virtually 2-1? Today, with the Euro being relatively weaker due to the Struggling Economies, it's now a much better time to travel! As shown on this chart, we're at about 1.35 - $1:

Santorini – Most romantic Island?

By | June 4th, 2010|Categories: Santorini|

We slept in past noon today, the first day we've done that. The weather got slightly better and more warm. We walked 15 minutes into the main town area to schedule our transportation to Athens. A 1 way flight would be 107 euros, but the travel agency gave us the option for a overnight ferry [...]

We arrived to the port around 7 pm, rented a small Hyundai for 25 euros a day from some major Greek hustlers. They also helped us arrange our accommodation stay at Fira Blue Horizon Guesthouse. We drove up the windy mountainous road to our hotel in Fira, the main city area, central location in Santorini. [...]

Greek food: Fulfilled 1 of the 7 sins: GLUTTONY.

By | June 2nd, 2010|Categories: Mykonos|Tags: |

Greece is known for it's beautiful beaches. The big families. The history. The white Togas. The 'Alpha' sexy men, where the word among the rest of the alphabet roots from. The big weddings. The white adobe houses with blue painted windows. The donkeys perhaps. The hedonistic life. The food here has stood out the most [...]
