Travel Is NOT That Expensive…

“Travel is too expensive!” This is a ridiculous argument in today’s world. I just saw round trip Austria to Los Angeles flights for $217. People don’t actually want to travel if they think it’s too expensive. They just love the idea. And really, this is just human nature. Dream, dream, dream, never take action. Travel gets […]

European Cigarettes Are Healthy, or Something

Just the other day, I was thinking about cigarettes in Europe. Namely, that they’re just not a “big deal” out here. Sure, you see the warnings on the packages, and people generally know that smoking is “bad”, but it’s not the deal it’s made out to be in the States. There isn’t constant propaganda to steer […]

I’m Going to Thailand

Earlier this year, I’ve been planning to go to Japan with my girl. But, things started to get difficult when we hit the dreaded visa process… Reason being? I’m traveling for three weeks for business. I needed to get her several thousand dollars in cash to show she had funds (money isn’t the problem, it’s […]
