Greetings & Feedings in Puerto Rico

After starting 2017 with two amazing charters that involved things like stage diving, midnight missions to kidnap other guests, and drunkenly eating chicken wings with your toes – Captain Cowboy and I were ready for a little down time detox on our month off. Instead, we had a rotating cast of drunken friends coming for […]

Beef Noodle Soup & A Day In Taipei

BEEF NOODLE SOUP. Three illustrious words that inspire hunger and drooling amongst the Chu clan – and a dish that triggers one of my earliest childhood memories. Every weekend when I was around four or five years old, my family would go for breakfast at the same hole in the wall restaurant in Flushing, where […]

Eating Our Way Through Taipei & Jiufen with The Best Tour Guide Ever

In the past three years of traveling I’ve had at least two tour guides for whom I’ve abused the superlative of “the worst tour guide ever.”  One got me locked out of my car on an overnight train in Thailand, and the other had me looking for a hat store all over Munich until I […]

Tourist vs Non-Tourist Day in Venice (Photo Heavy)

According to the Italian I had met on the bus, Venice is one of the worst cities it Italy to be a local, and I think I can understand why.  It would be like living in New York, if the entirety of the city was Time Square on New Years Eve.  Sure you can find a quiet alley, but […]

Arriving in Copenhagen: You’re Mostly Welcome

Last year (all backlogged posts will be henceforth posted as #tbt – or in a book, ha!) I ended up spending three weeks in Denmark with Handsome, the guy I had met and traveled with through Southeast Asia. This year, as the first stop on my Euro Trip I was heading back to good old […]

Getting Into Goa

Dear parents of the world, When flying, if your offspring are incapable of shutting the fuck up, sitting the fuck down, and not kicking the fucking chair by the time they’re fourteen – you’re a shitty parent.  Next time put your kids in a pet carrier, and if they still don’t shut up I’m shooting […]

Culture Shock and the Bright Side of Bangalore

My first morning in Bangalore I woke up feeling miserable.  We had been massively ripped off on our taxi, our hotel was sketchy at best – I was not in the mood to speak to anyone.  The other two woke up and went to breakfast and I stayed in bed where at least the air […]

Sydney Wrap Up

The day after hiking the Blue Mountains it was back to Sydney for one last full day of civilization before heading to India.  Accordingly, it was back on the food grind because who knew what I would actually be able to eat in India.  I was told just cooked vegetables.  Ick.  I insisted upon Din […]

Flashpacking in Sydney (and more Food Porn)

Due to the fact that when I told people I was leaving I got several monetary gifts from family and friends and awesome tips from customers I’d like to show that your money went to productive things so I’m dubbing some of you sponsors for excursions I may not have otherwise been able to afford. […]
