The movie and TV industry is full of sexy vampire talk as of late. Bucket loads full of sexy vampires. What, there’s like Twilight and Vampire Diaries and True Blood all making vampires look… uhm… hot, and although I tire of the hype, I will admit that I finally saw the first of the… Read more
For a lot of my teens and early 20s, I lived a nocturnal life, taking in the quiet atmosphere the night presented and using it to my advantage. I used to write songs, record music, organize my room, watch movies and — my favorite — catch up with friends. You could do that in… Read more
Dear Korean BBQ,
Where would we be without you? It definitely wouldn’t be a Sydney Travel Tribe event if we didn’t venture on to a late-night chow session of your spicy flavors. Sometimes, it feels almost life-saving.
If you asked me what I am eating, I couldn’t tell you (James does all the ordering for us… Read more
I never really appreciated sunrises or sunsets until I came to Australia where every single day puts me face-to-face with some of the most brilliantly painted skies. It’s hard to imagine what sunsets were like before… back in the Midwest of the USA. Did we even have them? Maybe it’s the different atmospheres, or the… Read more
Are tours for under 35’s a good thing, or are they all about getting trashed and hooking up? That, my blog reading friends, is the question.

I think it ends up being one of the hottest days whenever we have some sort of party to go to around Sydney. It totally wipes us out, and I get really lazy when trying to make my daily post. So, in my laziness, I thought an idea for a cool compilation post — one that YOU… Read more
Alright dudes, I’ll keep this short and simple. It’s Friday night (or Saturday morning for us in Oz); I’ve got stuff to do, and I’m sure you do, too, so why write up something new when I have plenty of fun little goodies for you to enjoy already done?
In the past few weeks,… Read more
In line with yesterday’s post on how I got my teaching gig in Ukraine, I thought I’d take the time to talk about another great teaching opportunity I had after I arrived in Australia.
I had two goals when I arrived in Oz: get a place to stay and get a job.… Read more
I get quite a few emails asking me about how I got my job teaching English in Ukraine, so now is as good a time as ever to divulge my lovely bits of insider information. If you happen to be one of those interested in an extended immersion into this former Soviet country,… Read more
What is it about former Soviet countries that sucks me in? I haven’t quite figured it out, but something about these somewhat stark areas makes me want to get up, book a ticket and try to deal with all the red tape involved in actually getting there.
I rediscovered this unique passion just the other … Read more
