The Whimsical Fusterlandia

Up to the age of 9, one of my favorite things to do, besides hand feeding my few surviving goldfishes (don't ask), was to decorate my room walls with drawings and stickers. The four walls of my bedroom (plus some other walls in our house) were full with drawings, doodles, and stickers up to as high...

Dearly beloved, we are gathered today to mourn the loss of my Sony Nex3 that I bought at a questionable back-alley pawnshop whose name I prefer not to mention. This awesome camera has helped me document candid moments, spread fake news, and make poorly designed memes over the years.

Havana Facts and Myths

You guys. YOU GUYS. Havana is classic, romantic, and iconic.

It is also the latest spontaneous destination of our winter escape. Frankly, I was sure that we were going to spend NYE somewhere 5 feet under the snow in Canada. I suggested that we go to Yukon. Yes, I find it very easy to go to the ext...

If I were the only one who set up our travel itinerary, it would definitely include nothing but spending forever and a day next to a pristine water body in a tropical island, napping, plus an endless supply of mojitos and churros for the entire holiday. And that is exactly why Nico does not trust me...

And the trip continues

Day 3. Erg Chebbi Dune - Todra Gorge - Boulmane Dades

We woke up early that morning at the camp to enjoy the sunrise. Everyone at the camp tried to get up on the highest dune to get a better look of the sunrise. The thing is, do you know how hard it is to climb up a dune of sand...

Casablanca was our gate for setting our feet on African soil for the first time ever, and we couldn’t be more excited. I have been told by many that although Morocco is geographically located in the African continent, it does not have much resemblance with the rest of Africa. Either in terms of race...

Gente de Mar, Rosario Islands

When someone mentions the word Cartagena, nice weather, cold drinks, beaches, and fresh pineapple come to mind. You do find those things in Cartagena for sure. Worry not, I am not going to blabber about Cartagena’s nice weather today, because as a coastal region, Cartagena is bound to have a nice co...

Renting an onward ticket

When I am asked about one thing I hate about traveling, I have a straight answer: the check points and immigration gates. Well, I hate the authorities in general. I have this constant subconscious guilt that I might have done a crime without even knowing it (I must’ve been a fugitive in my previous ...

Unlike most adults in my age that seem to have figured out their lives, I somehow still struggle to understand some basic knowledge, like understanding the four cardinal directions and deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger (but then again, aren’t we all?). But today I am not going to ...
