Adventures of DJ and M | Part 4 |Prague

Adventures of DJ and M | Part 3 | Shoes

My first visit to Budapest was a frosty sojourn where I tried to be either inside or in the toasty warm thermal baths at all times. I learned a lot about Budapest’s cafe culture, walked around the city with my head wrapped in hats and…

Adventures of DJ and M | Part 2 |Refugees and Tourists in Budapest

Days 2-4 in Budapest… Current event will tell you there is a refugee crisis in Budapest.  Current events are not wrong. Refugees are pouring in to the country at such a rapid pace that officials can’t keep up; however, refugees are being contained to…

Adventures of DJ and M | Part 1 | Traveling with friends

This adventure has been a long time in the making and it’s nearly polar opposite from what I usually do or how I normally travel. More than a year ago, my work mate DJ said “I want to go to Europe with you” and…

Playing tourist at home

Welcome basketball fans! We are glad you are here. What Falls Park looks like in the summer. Creepy clowns and high schools not allowing in the American Flag notwithstanding, Greenville and South Carolina in general are pretty cool tourist destinations. This year we were…

Let’s get naked

Let me preface this was that I never intended to get naked. It was a frigid January day in Budapest, but I wasn’t going to let that stop me from exploring.  Bundled up in all the clothing I had with me, I set out…

Remembering to remember

Today is Veterans Day in the USA.  In the UK it’s known as Armistice Day as it is the day that WWI ended–on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 the guns fell silent. It is a day to…
