  The land surrounds me, there is nothing but the dirt under my feet, the sky overhead and my bare body. Alone. I imagine what that would be like? Back in the beginning whenever that was, back when sparks flew and light spoke in the darkness. Far behind the present life yet still living within us, it was then, now and tomorrow. Weren't we all the same in that moment of deep reality in a nanosecond? I wonder at the magnitude, the enormous meaning of having it all and having nothing.  The beginni...

Rationality in a World of Suicidally Deluded People

I take the non-aggression principle to be a “relatively-absolute absolute” I believe that societies that follow the non-aggression principle (NAP) are better than those that don’t. To me, the NAP is a “relatively-absolute absolute”. I learned the concept of relatively-absolute absolutes from James Buchanan. These are persistent truths about the world of humans; they are … Continue reading "Rationality in a World of Suicidally Deluded People"

18 Easy Steps for Planning Your Next Trip

Updated: 02/24/20 | February 24th, 2020 I remember when I started planning my first trip around the world. I had no idea what I was doing. When I decided to quit my job and travel the world, I walked into a bookstore and bought Lonely Planet’s Southeast Asia on Shoestring. Buying that guidebook was my first step toward long-term travel. It made the trip seem more real, more tangilbe. It made it all seem possible. While helpful, the book didn’t exactly prepare me for planning a trip around the ...

Rome's City of Water

If you’ve been to Rome, you’ve seen the Trevi fountain, or you’ve gotten close enough to squeeze through a crack in the throng and come out somewhere within throwing distance of the big pool. But did you ever wonder, “where does that water go after tourists have gawked at it and thrown their coins in it?” For that, you have to go below the street surface of Rome, where they keep all the good, old stuff. Vicus Caprarius – The City of Water, extends 9 meters below street level. ...

LGBTQ guide to Washington, DC

When you think of Washington, DC, perhaps you flash to a photo of the capitol building and the White House. Maybe you picture a crowded senate floor or a news anchor standing in front of the Supreme Court. DC might not, however, be one of the first places you think of when you think of LGBTQ+ travel destinations. That’s not entirely DC’s fault since first and foremost it’s the capital of the United States and is typically associated with lawmaking and politics. But if you peel back a few of t...

Where to see rocket launches 2020

Rocket launches aren’t just for Florida anymore. Noting that the second-most-popular tourist attraction in Central Florida is the massive Kennedy Space Center, the rest of America — and the world – has begun developing tourism around the awe-inspiring experience of watching a rocket shoot into space. And many of them are in places worth visiting for more than just the launch. Though our American launch pads are easily the most accessible, if you were planning a trip to South America, Japan, o...

How Brazilian food honors Nigeria

As part of my voyage of the heart to heal from the sudden loss of my mother, Grace, I headed far afield to Brazil, a country she loved wholeheartedly yet never visited. During my mission to forget her passing, I encountered many a reminder of her aliveness, the dishes she cooked, and the tales she told of the place she was born: Nigeria. I arrived in time for Rio Carnival, which promised samba, pulsating revelry, and splashes of glitter. But the world’s grandest street party also brought me ...
