We’d just gotten off the tram at my girl’s parents home. Walking home after a long day of looking at apartments and doing all the usual stuff that comes with moving to a new country. Hassles, hassles, hassles. Suddenly, we heard a guy yelling. He was asking for the tram to wait for him. A […]

What’s Going On In November

Coming at you from Budapest for the final time today. Which makes it seem appropriate to do a sort of “state of the union” address regarding what’s going on in the world of Trouble. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of those, so let’s dive in. To me, at least, there’s a sense […]

Don’t Move Abroad For The Cheap Beer

Came an email from an aspiring skirt-chaser and pivo-chugger: “I dream of being in Eastern Europe one day with those naturally beautiful girls and tasty, cheap beer. Thank you for all the content, I certainly appreciate it. It would be great if you could tweet about how you learned copy-writing, the process etc. I’m about […]

Little (Brown) Brothers

A reader wrote a fantastic response to my recent email about “American privilege” and my checked bag issue with an Eastern European airline. He’s actually been a guest on DANET, and as an immigrant in America, has some great insights into how the world really works. Take it away, my friend… It’s interesting to see […]

Why Does a Checked Bag Have to Be So Difficult?

A recent true story out of Yours Troubly’s life in Eastern Europe… When trying to purchase a bag for my recent trip to Ukraine, the airline I was flying on wouldn’t let me purchase a bag online (I booked through my credit card and the bag wasn’t included). One would think, in 2018, that it […]
