The City Of Love…Paris

Posted by on Mar 19, 2014 in Europe, France, Places to Trek, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Paris is a place that initially gives you a rush of euphoria with her beauty and the excitement she has to offer. Food, wine, architecture and culture contribute to making her the most romantic city in the world. It is a city where the greats once roamed. Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, Picasso, Dali, etc. wondered drunkenly about the city, ages ago, and laid the road for dreamers alike to follow. It is a place for lovers where, at any historical landmark, couples can be seen locking faces and staring into each other with smiling eyes. Every night the Eiffel tower lights up the city for the first ten minutes of every hour. It stands as a beacon of hope for desperate boys wishing for a kiss from a pretty girl. For some of these starry-eyed lovers, Paris...

Rum, Chorizo, and New Years In Spain

Posted by on Jan 10, 2014 in Europe, Places to Trek, Spain, Uncategorized | 0 comments

“There is no night life in Spain. They stay up late but they get up late. That is not night life. That is delaying the day. Night life is when you get up with a hangover in the morning. Night life is when everybody says what the hell and you do not  remember who paid the bill. Night life goes round and round and you look at the wall to make it stop. Night life comes out of a bottle and goes into a jar. If you think how much are the drinks it is not night life.” ― Ernest Hemingway, 88 Poems 3:00 p.m. the 1st of January, 2014. My heart jumps and my eyes snap open. “Where the hell am I?” The whole room is dark, besides a little bit of light shining through an open shutter....

No Hablo Irish!

Posted by on Oct 23, 2013 in Europe, Ireland, Places to Trek, Uncategorized | 2 comments

You can spot them from a mile away. They move slowly, unless they are crossing the street, then they sprint. They wear the uniform of their kind consisting of necklace passport holders, wool Irish caps, and bright colored fanny-packs. They panic at rotating doors and constantly overuse “thank you” and “sorry.” They are the American tourist. They are best spotted on any average day, in the city center of Dublin, wondering around lost. You can see in their faces the hopes and dreams of leprechauns, wool sweaters, bagpipes, and rickety old pubs slowly being torn apart by the modernity and harshness that is Dublin. Although they come out in large numbers, the American tourists are not the only, lost and oblivious, tourist country wondering around the streets of Dublin. The Chinese tourists seem to live their whole trip behind...

Flying Boats!

Posted by on Apr 24, 2013 in Media, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a boat… Like a scene out of a Twister movie a boat comes flying across the screen and proceeds to smash into the side of a car. The comical iPhone video was filmed during a rare thunderstorm in the hills of Hollidaysburg, Pa. Evan McCaffrey was on his front porch when a strange funnel cloud began to form above his house. Quick thinking and intuition drove him to take out his phone and film the storm. Much to his surprise a fishing boat was lifted by the high winds from a neighbours house. It proceeded to fly through the air and land on top of his car. Evan says that the boat and the car were both damaged by the impact. At least he has video evidence for the...

Checkin out the Tea Party

Posted by on Oct 18, 2012 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

As every good journalist should do, get all the viewpoints, I am checking out a Tea Party meeting in the small rural town of Thompson Falls, Montana. They will be watching and discussing the conservative movie Occupy Unleashed at the local theater. I was personally pepper sprayed by police photographing Occupy D.C. So hopefully this is a little more...

The List of Truths

Posted by on Aug 15, 2012 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I kept getting this weird feeling that everything was a lie.  I knew this couldn’t be true so I sat down and tried to outline what was causing me to feel this way.  During this search for the lie my eyes were opened up to a whole new world that runs parallel to our own full of truths and reality, but which has been altered by the artifacts of the human race .  This world is much like our own, but what it contains is the pure truths that haven’t been altered to fit our reality.  What I started then to realize was that we live in a world of competing “truths” where only certain ones are not man-made and are the natural truths. So, I wanted to start a list that  sheds light on the  natural “truths” of this world that seem...
