Watching New Year’s Fireworks In Prague

Prague New Years Fireworks

For someone who loves fireworks, there’s no better place to be than Prague during New Year’s celebrations. For someone who is pretty high strung and jumpy to begin with, there is no worse place to be than Prague during New Year’s celebrations. New Year’s fireworks in Prague happen twice: at midnight on New Year’s Eve, and at 6pm on New Year’s Day. The midnight fireworks are a total free-for-all. Anyone can buy fireworks in...

Maybe you clicked on this post because you’re confused. You might be thinking, “who needs to be told how to write a travel journal? That shit’s easy!” Well, my friend, that’s where you’d be wrong. You see, other people who’ve clicked on this post might be like me: the well-intentioned travellers who always tell themselves that they’re going to keep a thoroughly documented, beautifully crafted account of their trips only to come home without having written down a single...

It’s cold where I am today. Like, -20° Celsius, which is -4° Fahrenheit, which is just way too cold. Needless to say I’ve spend most of these last few chilly weeks daydreaming of being back in Kaua’i, Hawai’i, where it’s currently 22°C… Sigh. If I’m going to be daydreaming then I may as well take you all along for the ride! In need of your own sun-spiration today? Well then sit back, pour yourself...

Well, we’re back from the Christmas holidays and easing back into the swing of things. Both Candice and I took trips in December: she went on an exciting European adventure that she’s going to tell you all about in her posts and I took a more relaxing vacay to sunny Hawai’i, which I’ll also be telling you a bit more about later this week. But before I get to the sun and sand and...

How To Do NYC In Two Hours

Inspired by Sara’s 24 Things To See & Do In Vancouver In (Just Over) 24 Hours I thought I would write up a quick little post about my recent whirlwind tour of New York City, or, more accurately, the 4 square miles around Times Square. I was actually in NYC for a concert. My favourite Korean pop group, VIXX, held a concert at Terminal 5 last week and of course I bought VIP Meet and...

Travel Narrative Book Review: WILD by Cheryl Strayed

Wild, Pacific Crest Trail, travel, book, Cheryl Strayed

The other night I was sitting around when something dawned on me out of the blue. “What the hell,” I muttered, “Don’t tell me I missed it…” I pulled up IMDB and sure enough… I hadn’t missed anything. What I had remembered suddenly was that the movie adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail was due in theatres somewhere around the end of the year. It turns...

I’m in the midst of planning various trips for the next year or so – New York for a VIXX k-pop concert, Berlin and Prague for Christmas and New Years, possibly Austria to see my favourite musical Elisabeth, and eventually the U.K. and Japan. I’ve been obsessively checking flights and hotels and city guides to prepare for my travel adventures. Seeing as how I am one of those people who’s perpetually glued to their smartphone, I...

Chasing the Sun in Kauai

Adam Foster_Kauai

I think we’ve officially hit that time of year where people in the Northern hemisphere start dreaming of sand and sun. The year is almost over and we’re feeling tired and in desperate need of vacay. Plus, it’s starting to get cold and, for Canadians like me, this is just a taste of what’s to come: Snow. Sleet. Freezing temperatures. No, thank you. It’s with all of this in mind that I find myself feeling the...
