We’ve all heard it said that truth is stranger than fiction. I can’t say this is always true, having read some very strange pieces of unconventional fiction, but I can say that truth is sometimes just as wild and exciting as fiction, and Gringo is the perfect example of that.

Upon arriving to Manila, the restaurant that we ate at employed midgets and our group was served by these tiny professional waiters. The astounding level of engagement on my Facebook post of the picture with Sharkey resting his beer on the [...]
Well... you can definitely say we’ve gone “off the beaten track” this time! Young Pioneers Tour planned this trip through Eurasia, touring countries that have almost no infrastructure for tourists. To be honest, my pronunciation of these places is as unrecognizable as they are. Though they are extremely difficult destinations to get to, my trusty travel guides at YPT made it happen! One of the safest, cleanest and most modern undiscovered places I had been was at our [...]

Checking in from the road as I travel from Beijing to Mongolia on the Mongolian Express! I met a new friend from California as I was boarding the train.

In my train compartment there were 4 bunks. Two on each [...]
