Have you ever been to a new city and instantly felt some sort of indescribable connection? Walked down a quaint street as you saw apartments with signs for rent and began to imagine yourself chilling on the stoop having a cold one with your awesome neighbors? Caught a smile from the opposite sex (or same) and thought, wow, I could actually live here! While the thought of putting down permanent roots somewhere is still a horrifying notion for many of us below, it’s nice to “pretend” once in a while, so without further ado,  here is a selection of 15 of the best…

Mexico City’s Coolest Neighborhood: Roma Norte!

Post updated in October, 2016 When it comes to Mexico City, there are a lot of preconceptions and false truths. If you ask someone what they know or think about it, you’ll probably get, “dangerous, dirty, crowded”. While I myself had many doubts the first time I decided to go to Mexico City, I couldn’t have been more wrong and my initial trip was a completely eye opening experience. Mexico City is massive, and like any massive city, it has less desirable areas to visit…just like any city for that matter. Cities don’t operate without a strata of people in different…

Haa haa made you click! If you’re a Euro, you’re probably peeing your pants you’re so angry, and if you’re Canadian, you’re probably pissed too because I’m referring to “America” as the United States. I love Europe, but there are certain FAILS that should be addressed. But, don’t worry, before you think I’m just some pompous American prick, the next post will be “Why Europe is Better Than America”, so just take a chill pill and let’s do it! 1. You have to pay to use the bathroom in public places Why the hell should I have to pay to…

5 Random Reasons Why I Love Thailand!

Thailand is a hedonis….westerner’s dream. Famous just for being a farang (foreigner in Thai)?, check. Delicious food, cold beer, great accommodation for half the cost of any country that you’re probably from? Check. Bustling cities that never sleep, pristine beaches, tropical islands and picturesque mountains? Check. While all of the above reasons why Thailand should be a must-visit on any traveler’s bucket list, there are some other reasons why I love Thailand and have spent a couple months here in the past year (two trips!). 1. Bathroom Massages  If you like massages, then Thailand is the country for you. If…

If you haven’t read The Gayest, Non-Gay Experience of My Life: Part 1 – The Turkish Bath House, I suggest you do so before reading this post. After almost two years of intense psycho and physical therapy, finally letting people touch me again, and having as much sex (with women) as humanly possible, I have finally shed the terrible memories of the homo-erotic Turkish Hammam in Istanbul. It was not easy moving on after such an experience, but it had to be done. Fast forward two years, and I’m still traveling, and more than ever in fact. I’m currently in…

Only While Traveling: Starring in a Romanian Music Video!

Anyone who has traveled can attest to weird/cool/crazy shit happening while on the road. Be it the fact that being somewhere new nurtures an adventurous spirit, or that you just wouldn’t dare go to a Ping Pong show in your native country, traveling opens the doors for new experiences that just aren’t really “possible” back at home. Long term traveling especially will definitely pit you in some situations that will make you go WTF? or hopefully, fuck yea! I had one of those moments last week when I got asked to be in a Romanian music video, yesss. I was…

I Escaped Prison in Mexico Dressed as a Woman – A Special Interview with Dwight Worker

Escaped Prison

The following is an interview with a pretty bad ass dude, Dwight Worker.  What’s special about Dwight? Yea he’s protested and been beat for standing up for civil rights in the 60’s, yea he’s helped sink whaling ships in the 90’s, but probably the most amazing thing Dwight has done is, escape from the most dangerous prison in North America…dressed as a woman.  After being caught smuggling cocaine in an arm cast at Benito Juarez Airport in Mexico City, he was arrested and sent to Lecumberri Prison.  He spent two very rough years there (you’ll read why below) until he…

I Flew, I Crashed, I lived – A 1st Hand Account from US Airways Flight 1549

US Air Flight 1549 Plane Crash

The Following is a guest post from Ian Wells, a friend of mine and fellow alum from the University of Miami.  One of the most amazing things about Ian…is that he is alive.  He survived the plane crash of US Air Flight 1549 and I and TheWorldorBust are privileged to have him share his amazing story just a few days shy of the three year anniversary of the crash.  Ian currently resides in NYC and works as an internet entrepreneur. I love to fly.  It’s been that way ever since I was a kid. I enjoy the whole experience; the peanuts, picking…
