About Me

My photo
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 125 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.

SWEDEN, Gothenburg

June 22-24, 2019

2 hour train from Malmo but then 45 minute walk to hostel. Gothenburg was not what I expected. The "old town" does not seem very old and really not a lot to see. The hostel recomnended visiting the nearby islands but doesnt really interest me. There is a large park nearby where EVERYONE is catching "rays" when possible. Scandinavians LOVE their sun and I would too with long nights and cold in the winter. Lol

Only 39 minutes by TRAIN from Copenhagen, Denmark is beautiful town of Malmo. From the waterfront you can actually see Denmark.

SWEDEN, Archipego Islands

September 5, 2013

Cruising back to Stockholm I got up at 6 am to see the Swedish Archipelgo which is composed of 30,000 islands reaching out for almost 40 miles into the Baltic. Many tiny islands are large enough for only one house.

SWEDEN, Stockholm, Vasa Museum and cruise departure

September 1, 2013

My cruise ship leaves at 6 pm so I decided to go to the Vasa Museum and see the world's best preserved 17th century naval ship.  The ship was incredible and well preserved even though the exterior no longer has its vibrant color. After a few hours here I walked the 45 minutes to the cruise port and checked in. Unfortunately 2 hrs before boarding, but I am a "get there" early kinda guy. Note: Also bought double cheeseburgers at McDonalds for dinner on the ship instead of paying $20-25 for dinner on the ship. A pattern that would occur on a daily basis. Saved at least $50 by doing this which is 10 nights in a private room in San Pedro, Guatemala.  Perspective.
