Dubai, United Arab Emirates

I’ve been meaning to post something about Dubai for a couple of weeks now but haven’t gotten around to it. Currently I’m waiting in the Singapore airport so…no time like the present…   How do you begin to describe the city of Dubai? I’ve just spent three days there, which admittedly is not enough time […]

Malaysia

Malaysia is pretty rad. I’ve been to a few different places in the country and they’ve all been pretty different experiences.

Wine Tasting in the Barossa Valley

Australia’s Barossa valley is one of the largest agricultural and wine producing regions in Australia. This is somewhat ironic considering that it is located just outside the driest capital of the driest state on the driest continent on earth. South Australia and its capital, Adelaide, can be a veritable dust ball for much of the […]
