Masaya Volcano: Entrance to the Underworld

This morning, the lock screen of Windows computer (yes, Windows, don’t give me any shit Apple fanboys) showed me a picture of Erta Ale, an active basaltic volcano in Ethiopia. You can go to the edge, but the volcano is situated in the Afar Depression, a badland desert area and one of the toughest place on Earth. So if you don’t want to caravan on a camel’s back for a week under 50°C heat, but still want ...

I had just dropped a key pass that would have converted a key 4th down for my team and my own ego as the starting wide receiver. I walked to the ...

Here we were, enjoying a leisurely stroll in the Upper Lakes of Plitvice National Park. Suddenly, Jarelle felt his heart accelerating (no, he wasn’t having sex with nature) and collapsed to the ground. My fallen comrade wasn’t feeling good.

Our Trip to Paklenica & Plitvice Lakes National Parks

Only two days after welcoming my bro Jarelle to Ireland, which must have been quite a shock to him already, here we were already taking another plane. We landed in Zadar, Croatia, at 10pm, and while I was doing paperwork at the rental car desk, Jarelle -like a police detection dog- had already identified some American college girls to talk to. Car keys in hand, we drove to our Airbnb, or at least we ...
