My Arab Spring

The Middle East is such a shit show right now. Even when I was working in the news business I could barely keep track of what acronym was associated with what terror organization, mostly because I was being personally terrorized by the relentless tag team of Lindsay Lohan and Justin Bieber. But now…

Kia Ora

I ended up only spending two weeks in New Zealand instead of a planned three. I had a plane ticket already booked out of Middle Earth for the end of March back to the part of the world where all the people live. You know, where you aren't a 20 hour plane ride to the nearest country. If it sounds…

Aussie As

I've always had a certain stereotype in my mind about Australians, specifically the men. I assumed that like attractive American men, they too would have a certain cockiness about them. An "I do what I want" attitude, if you will. So imagine my surprise when everyone I met turned out to…

A Piece Of My Heart

It's my last day in Thailand and when I leave, a little piece of my heart will remain here. I have a lot of spare pieces to go around because I don't bother my heart with silly things like love and emotions and I couldn't possibly care less about today being Valentine's Day. What I do…

Same Same, But Different

"Same same," is a common saying among the Thai people. They use it when trying to give an example of how something they are saying or selling is similar to what you're use to wherever you come from. There is a "Same Same" bar in Koh Phangan (where the full moon parties are) and the…

The 7 Month Itch

Just a month ago I was home in the states and now I'm half way around the world again ramping up for the next 6+ months of continuous travel. When I set out on this world tour back in May I hadn't planned on going home at all within the first year, but the six month mark seemed like a good checking…

Dubai: It's Like Vegas, With Prayer Rugs

From the moment I saw a time-lapse video of a city popping out of the desert, I knew I needed to see it in person. Dubai is the perfect example of the level of wealth and excess found in the Middle East. Its huge sky scrapers overlook luxurious pools and private beach clubs. The valets at the nightclubs…

WWJD Part 2

When I said it, the taxi driver just stared at me and said nothing. Daring me to say it again with his eyes, but hoping he heard me wrong. "I want to go to the refugee ca..." He cut me off before I could repeat myself with a firm "no!" That's when I went to reach for the door handle…

What Would Jesus Do? Part 1

When you grow up in America, you aren't use to people asking you about religion or politics. Bringing up either of those topics is considered taboo in just about every social setting. So combining both is something I just wasn't prepared for when I started my tumultuous tour of the Middle East.…

Mish Arabiyah

I've had a love/hate relationship with the Arab side of my heritage for as long as I can remember. When you grow up in a predominantly white community where every teacher butchers the pronunciation of your last name and your classmates think it's funny to call you a camel jockey, you adopt the…
