For the past half year or so I’ve been questioning my career, my trajectory, and many of my major life choices. I’m 27, not completely sure what I want to do with life, where I want to end up, and wonder if I should ease up with the all night drinking and traveling and carrying on when

I wrote in my hosteling post that one of the guys we met at Reykjavik backpackers was hitchhiking and couch-surfing his way through Iceland and I expressed that I spent too many long hours (mostly hungover Sundays) in the company of Benson & Stabler to ever consider it a viable option BUT did start to do some preliminary research
The travel blogging community is certainly a fickle one. There’s a certain sense of exclusivity and superiority and one-upmanship that permeates it; If you haven’t couchsurfed your way across Bulgaria or eaten street meat in Tai Pei or didn’t spend all of your time in Pittsburgh scouring organic farmer’s markets for local products then you’re not
I haven’t woken up smelling like an ashtray in sometime, and that’s not a complaint. Last night I did a bar tour of Central PA’s west shore and it was epic. For those of you unfamiliar with Central PA’s geographics and lingo the area around Harrisburg is often referred to as being on the east shore
I usually tent it whenever I got to Sea Isle City. My friends rent a tiny beach house and I’m normally not the only guest. Pitching a tent in their backyard ensures that I’m not fighting for a couch, and really what’s better than sleeping under the stars (separated by some netting) at the shore?

During my college years Sunday Funday was a regular part of my vocabulary and something that occurred on the regular. Nowadays (especially during the school year), it’s become something of a novelty that seems to primarily happen on three day weekends, which in essence, defeats the purpose of a “Sunday Funday.” A proper Sunday Funday, for those
If you couldn’t tell already, I’m a big fan of Lake Placid. I was just there in February and visited in January a year before that. While the success of the previous trip has me already planning a return trip this winter, Lake Placid and the surrounding Adirondack High Peaks would make for a great summer
If you read this blog at all you’re well aware that I recently returned from a week long trip to Iceland. It was an amazing experience, whose success I partially attribute to where we stayed: Reykjavik Backpacker’s hostel. There were a number of reasons why staying in a hostel rather than a hotel enhanced our
Iceland was an amazing vacation that I wouldn’t trade for anything. That being said, we were in Iceland for one short week and while I’m happy with everything we did, I could have easily spent another week or two (or 3, or a month) there exploring all it has to offer. Here’s my wish-list of
