Oh Colombia. Thinking now of that time, now a month and a half past still brings fond memories. Vanessa and I flew to Cartagena with sights of a white foamy sea made up of not the ocean but the hotel buildings glistening among one another. We immediately went to the marina where we would catch a … Continue reading Colombia…
100 days. It feels quite surreal. The dream that’s plagued my mind for several years is and has been here for some time now. As I expected, the speed with which I’ve moved through time during this trip has been blistering. But of course, that is wonderfully indicative of how great of an experience this … Continue reading 100 Days
During our time in Manizales we enjoyed many things including hot springs, walking at the top of a tower viewpoint, enjoying some local foods, and most of all spending time with their family. We went out to eat with them, took grandma for some walks and to get some ice cream, went out with the … Continue reading Colombia..
First things first. Gotta get the name right. Note the cOLOmbia rather than cOLUmbia like the outdoor gear company, or Washington DC (district of columbia). Ok, now that we have that out of the way we can continue uninterrupted with our discussion of Colombia, and it’s a great place to talk about. After leaving the … Continue reading Colombia.

On weekends, all of the volunteers would share a taxi to the main city on the island, Puerto Baquerizo. You don’t need to go far to see plenty of moaning and groaning sea lions. It’s quite … Continue reading Wild Galapagos part two
For a continent that enjoys moving at a leisurely pace, things sure have been moving quickly! It’s been over 2 months since I ventured out of my north New Jerseyan hole and into the vastness of South America. It’s been a great ride, but that’s expected when you stop working and don’t stop visiting new places … Continue reading Wild Galapagos
Well, being that its New Year’s Eve, I think this is a better time than ever to talk about goals, especially because they’ve been on my mind for some time now. Goals are a hot topic. They are the reason for success both individually and as a human race. Without goals, our determination and direction … Continue reading Goals
It’s been an incredibly fast 2 weeks here in Peru. Starting things off, I spent a few days to acclimatize to the elevation in Cusco (roughly 11,700 feet). Me and a good buddy explored many of the great things that this fascinating city has to offer. It is the oldest continually inhabited city in the … Continue reading Peru
For those of you who have not worked in the professional services industry before, realization is the profitability of projects that a company is engaged to perform. In more personal terms, realization is the point at which you are fully aware that something has become a fact or when you achieve something desired or anticipated. … Continue reading Realization
It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly when a moment of eye-popping clarity comes about. When it comes to my desire to travel, I could tell you that it was when I went to Haiti in 2012 to care for the most beautiful children. I could also tell you it was when my parents came to the … Continue reading Quitting
