The City of Sevilla – View from La Giralda

From Tangier in Morocco, I took a fast ferry all the way to Tarifa in the southernmost part of Spain. It took 30 minutes, and the ferry ride was comfortable and clean. My ferry ticket includes a bus ride from Tarifa to the bus station in Algeciras. From there, I

Video – Amsterdam Canal Views

Carrera de Tacones 2016 or Heels Race is an annual tradition on Pelayo Street as part of the festivities for Madrid Orgullo (MADO). Literally, it’s a race that men on high heels compete for 600 Euros grand prize. It’s fun to watch these “ladies” run like they’re going to break

Pride Critic Madrid 2016 Orgullo

Yesterday, while a friend and I were on our way to find the oldest churro restaurant in Madrid, we stopped by Plaza del Sol to camwhore around. Then, we heard loud noises of drums – and we thought they were just buskers performing on the street. When the noise got

The Beauty of Iran Held Me Hostage

Fellow wanderlust, Sandeep Singh, recently visited Iran and found beauty beyond what he expected to see. When he sent me this article with these five incredible photos, my jaw hanged in the air and all I thought was, “The beauty of Iran held me hostage.” No pun intended. Yes, I’ve never been
