About Me

WHO KNOWS ???, United States
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 110 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

Lisbon, Portugal

May 29-June 1st

Train from Lagos to Barcelona (4 hours) and then 10 minute metro to Travellers House,  my favorite in Lisbon. Few days chilling and walking around REVISITING sights I saw last year. Not many pics as I took so many last year.

8 pm flight June 1st, sleep in airport and pick up my 3 EARLY TRAVELERS. Rest of group arrives on June 3rd.

Lagos, Portugal

May 21st-29th.

After long day traveling (36 hours) I arrived in Faro. 2 hours later a shuttle dropped me off in Lagos about 10:30 pm. While TRYING TO USE GOOGLE MAPS I was definitely having difficulty location Top City Hostel. Finally found it, checked in and ate at midnight at nearby Kebab place.

GREAT HOSTEL, unfortunately a PARTY hostel with nightly pub crawls. Went on one for 10 minutes and came to my senses. Lol

Beaches are great, weather is great but windy and water ius COLD. Visiting the CAVES is big tourist attraction here but trips are expensive so just enjoying sunny Portugal. Lisbon for 3 nights beginning May 29th after 4 hour train, then back to Dublin to meet group.


April 9-12, 2019

Situated in the mountains at 2600 meters and with a population over 8 million, I found Bogota a not particularly beautiful city. I stayed in the historic centre, Candelaria, and most sights were within walking distance. What I REALLY LIKED was the street art everywhere.
