The Art and Royalty of France

The Art and Royalty of France

I could've easily spent my entire time in Paris strolling through the extensive world class museums with my rainy day mix playing through my headphones. But I hardly even scratched the surface because the weather was too perfect not to be getting lost outside. Oh and that whole "I have…

An American Tourist in Paris

I've heard tons of stories from my friends who've supposedly gone to Paris and lived off wine and bread for something ridiculous like $3 a day. So even with the shitty USD to Euro conversion rate I wasn't too worried about going to Paris without much more than a Sub…

Getting High for Birthday Dinner in the BVI

I am by no means a food connoisseur. Hell, one of my favorite foods is the Cheesy Gordita Crunch from Taco Bell. But I do have nearly 27 years of experience in eating. That's gotta give me some credibility, right? Living in New York for nearly six years has given me a…
