Taking A Couple Pieces from Tani Mens Wear For A Spin

IMG_3773 (1)

This past month I had the chance to try out some premium men’s lounge wear from Tani USA. Tani produces very hiqh-quality Men’s underwear and lounge wear and are based in Brooklyn, NYC. Tani describes their design process as the following, “Our prevailing aesthetic is pure. There are no hidden pouches, panels or gimmicks. Design is streamlined, classic with a nod to modernity. We want the first thing you put on in the morning to be comfortable, uncomplicated and complementary.” I’d have to agree. I tried a pair of the Grey French Terry Lounge Pants and a Black Silkcut Vneck Undershirt.…

My List of The Most Underrated and Overrated Travel Destinations in The World

image from the jakartapost

In the seemingly endless sea of online content promoting certain destinations, sponsored or not, it gets to be quite cumbersome to sort through it all and decide what places are actually going to be better than your expectations, and some that will most certainly, not live up to them. As a travel blogger, I find it my duty to not only share which places I think are amazing to visit, but also the ones that you should probably drop to the bottom of your bucket list. Here is my list of the most underrated travel destinations in the world and the most…

Ridin’ Dirty in The Yucatan with Matt Karsten from The Expert Vagabond!

Jeremy Albelda on a motorcycle road trip in Mexico

Last week I got to do one of my favorite things in the world, climb onto a motorcycle and cruise around for an entire day. I linked up with Matt Karsten from Expert Vagabond.com and Evelina from Earth Wanderess.com and we rented some pretty bad ass Harleys just south of Playa Del Carmen, Mexico with plans to ride down to the beautiful Mayan Ruins of Coba. We started our journey at Harley Adventures where the owner Eikka suited us up with our bikes and helped fill us in on our planned route. I was on a Sporster Iron 883, one of my favorite bikes…

Where was this contest when I graduated college?! The AXA Great Global Adventure

When I graduated college in 2010, job prospects were bleak. My dreams of round-the-world travel seemed even farther away than landing a decent job that interested me. I had to get creative in the way that I made a living and still have the time to build my business up to where it was viable enough for me to actually put food in my mouth. Fast-forward 5 years and I’m finally on my own and a true, “Digital Nomad.” But AXA, one of the largest international insurance and asset management companies in the world has created one of the coolest…

Getting Over My Fear of Heights – Skydiving in Playa Del Carmen! (video)

If you read my last post about my Via Farrata experience in Hidalgo, Mexico, you’ll know I’m a big time pu*** when it comes to heights. I don’t know why, I’m not really scared of anything else. Riding motorcycles at 100 mph, mountain biking down rugged trails with 3 foot drop offs, etc., nothing else really fazes me, but heights? Lights out. After thinking of alternative ways that I could get over my fear of heights without shelling out for a psychiatrist, I decided, I should probably just stare the devil in the face, and what better way to get over my fear…

The Mexican Motorcycle Diaries Part 2 – Beautiful Hidalgo

On the second full day of my motorcycle road trip in Mexico, I was still in beautiful Hidalgo state and lucky enough to have continued amazing weather after almost a month of overcast skies in Mexico City (it’s only about an hour and a half away). After a delicious traditional breakfast in the town center of colonial Huasca of quesadillas de hongos (some sort of fungus), we were off to our first activity with HGO Adventures, just outside the small town of Mineral del Chico. I’ve actually been having trouble getting myself to write about the following, as I’m embarrassed about how major of a…

There are countless destinations on this planet that compete for our attention as travelers, but few match the morbid appeal of a ghost town. From outposts in the wilderness, to hedonistic paradises that have been taken from us by nation states that love to play geopolitical games with each other, the stories of their golden days are as equally compelling as their ultimate downfall. We’ve covered the most isolated tribes in the world as well as places in the world probably never knew existed, so now it’s time for the most interesting ghost towns in the world!   1) Pyramiden, Russia Situated in…
