Climbing The Sacred Mountains Of China

You’ve heard about me partying it up in Beijing while also surveying the extreme Chinese work ethic. But there is far more to China than the work hard, play hard lifestyle. For that matter, China as a whole, is not much of a party. I should note, though, there will be some peculiar nightlife coming…

Discovering The Cuba Of Africa

Discovering this country was a watershed moment for me. Although I was visiting a Portuguese-speaking island nation, it was my first time in Sub-Saharan Africa. In less politically correct terms, it was my first time stepping foot in “Black Africa.” Yet it was here where I successfully exercised my white privilege. You will see how…

Preparing For Life Beneath The Sea In Icelandic Waters

Some of you may be under the impression that I will set up a stateless base in the Arctic or Antarctic to plot the demise of governments worldwide and starve politicians of their tax dollars, euros and yen. While roughing it around the earth’s poles can make for great fun once in a while, it is…

Seeing The Top Of The World And Dodging Death By Rhinoceros In Nepal

Keeping it real, Kathmandu is a shithole. I never get headaches, except when in Kathmandu. The air quality is terrible, not to mention the place recently got hit by a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake, and it wasn’t the prettiest of cities to begin with. But that makes sense. Nepal is a country of contrast. This…

Exploring A Long-Lost Nazi Civilization in Antarctica

I didn’t just go to Antarctica for bragging rights or to see penguins (You already know I love animals).

  Have you ever gone on vacation and stayed in the home of a mayor-turned- … wait for it… wait for it… convicted child rapist?! That’s right. My host was the mayor, and now he is a convicted child rapist. Better yet, he is a direct descendant of the Bounty mutineers, and more than two…

Overcoming Phonebreak On Magnificent Mangareva

It was just supposed to be a stopover on the way to the ultra-isolated Pitcairn Island. Mangareva was where my French Polynesia trip would come to an end and I would brace for my encounter with the descendants of the Bounty mutineers in Pitcairn, the most difficult to reach territory in the world. Entering my…

Dodging German-Eating Cannibals In The Marquesas Islands

Cannibals? They still exist? They eat Germans? They prey on tourists in French Polynesia? No one seems to know exactly what happened. It was 2011. A German tourist named Stefan Ramin was on an exotic trip around the world with his girlfriend. Ramin died after going on an excursion with his girlfriend and a local…

Going Wine Tasting In The Tropics

Having met the seasteaders in Tahiti, Roadstered around Moorea and summited my future honeymoon destination of Bora Bora, I moved on to lesser-known islands for the second half of my French Polynesia trip. Have no worry… the fun will come. Following a pleasant flight that involved no TSA hassles — or any airport security procedures…

Honeymooning with my laptop in Bora Bora

Bora Bora Pacific

I have yet to find my bride, but I have already found my honeymoon location. In fact, I have already honeymooned there. Some people say to reward yourself first and the desired result will come. The idea is that if you get a taste of what you want in life — even if you are…

Cruising California Topless

Convertible Roadtrip California

California dreaming. You’ve heard it. Many people live it. All over the world, especially in cold places, there are people who dream or occasionally fantasize of moving to California and rubbing shoulders with the stars. I don’t. It’s a tax hell. But that doesn’t stop me, as a perpetually traveling, tax-free, anarchocapitalist global citizen, from…
