Writing On The Sand

Writing On The Sand

A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey, they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, he wrote in the sand: Today my best friend slapped me in the […]

The Time of My Life

The Time of My Life

It’s been just over a week since my wife and I came back from our backpacking trip through some of Central Europe. We visited 4 countries and 8 cities in 18 days and it was one of the best trips we’ve done. Now that we’re back it’s taking me a full week to recuperate from […]

The Reason I Envy Europeans

The Reason I Envy Europeans

I don’t consider myself an envious person and until recently I never thought I envied anyone.  I feel very privileged to live a life that most people are not fortunate to have.  At the same time I love to travel but so far in order to be able to do a lot of traveling I’ve […]

Inspirational Travel

Inspirational Travel

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about how I can inspire others. Not only readers of my blog but everyone around me.  Unfortunately, no prophet is accepted in his hometown and most times it’s hard to inspire those closest to you because they not only know your strengths, but also your flaws.  I […]

Today In History

Today In History

  I’ve never broadcast my birthday but this year will be an exception only because I want to post a photograph of one of the best gifts I’ve ever received.  I absolutely love it!  I’ve been traveling with my wife for eleven years and I too hope to travel the entire world with her.  Also, […]

Is Fear Keeping You From Traveling?

Is Fear Keeping You From Traveling?

On the subject of failure Chilean-French filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky once said, “between doing and not doing you always have to do.”   Failure is part of life.  We can try to escape it but will be unsuccessful.  At some point in our lives we fail.  I’ve failed many times and even then I am not […]

Epic Battle: Spring Fever vs. Winter Blues

Epic Battle:  Spring Fever vs. Winter Blues

How excitement fills the air when those first nice days of spring arrive.  Yesterday was definitely one of those days; above average temperature, and delightfully sunny.  By the time I came out of my office to get some fresh air,  about fifteen minutes before noon, already there were people outside the Yonge street business district […]

Escape The Routine

Escape The Routine

In less than a month I will be turning 36, and believe it or not, before this past weekend I actually thought I was turning 35.  I find it mind-boggling that the last 15 years of my life have gone so fast.  For most people, life moves much faster as you get older.    As […]

Life Lesson From Geese

Life Lesson From Geese

    As I walked out of my apartment this morning I noticed two geese standing on the rooftop of the building across the street; each one on opposite corners, as guarding soldiers, protecting their territory. These birds migrate every winter, and yet, they always come back with a sense of pride and confidence, as […]
