Camping At Tayrona National Park

It's 10pm on a Monday night, my friends just left and I'm now sitting here alone at the Cranky Croc hostel in Bogotá, Colombia, reflecting on my last 2 weeks here in Colombia. The trip was great, it was full of adventure, close calls, beaches, and beer. Colombia is a beautiful country I'll surely visit again, and could have easily spent 1 to 2 months in. This post is going to be a quick recap of what we did, enjoyed, wish we could have done, and didn't really care for.

Fireworks Gone Bad

You may have already switched that calendar to 2012 but that doesn't mean your New Year's Eve planning is over. It's never too soon to start planning for next year to avoid that dreaded week. You know, the week before New Year's Eve when everyone starts asking the same question: "What are your New Year's Eve plans?!?" The answer is undoubtedly, "I have NO idea!" all the way up until December 31st. Unless your buddy is throwing an incredible house party, what in the world are you and your friends going to do? You bought the sequins and the best champagne, but you don't have a clue where you'll be at midnight. Chances are you'll head to a club last minute, pay a $75 entry fee, and fight your way through the crowds to reach the bar, where you will buy the strongest drink they offer. Make that two of the strongest drinks they offer, since you probably won't find the bar again for several hours.

Running With The Bulls in Pamplona, Spain

Running With the Bulls is fairly common among bucket lists, and it should be. It was one of the most exhilarating things I've ever done. It's not like sky diving or bungee jumping in that you're pretty much at the mercy of your equipment or instructor once you jump, you have to move yourself through a crowd packed shoulder to shoulder, all pumped full of adrenaline and running full speed as 12 1000+ pound bulls/steer come charging for you.

Tip – How To Beat Jet Lag

Jet Lag got you missing out on the sights?

At this moment it's 5:33 AM Pacific Standard Time on Thursday.  My flight left Brisbane at 11:10 pm Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, connecting in Taipei for 10 hours, then dropping me at LAX 36 hours later.  I hardly slept on either leg of my flight, and went sightseeing in Taipei during my layover.  When I arrived home I spent time with friends and family until nearly 2AM.  Logic says 3.5 hours of sleep should not be enough, so why am I awake?  I didn't follow my own method for avoiding jet lag...

Al Fresco Surfers Paradise
Al Fresco Italian Restaurant in Surfers Paradise, QLD

You've been traveling the East Coast of Australia.  You've arrived in Surfers Paradise, the most touristy city of all.  The streets are lined with kebab joints, stale pizza slices, McDonalds, and take away Chinese.  Where do you go for food?  From the heart of town, cruise down Gold Coast Highway towards the Q1 tower.  On the left hand side you'll arrive at my favorite restaurant in Surfers Paradise, Al Fresco.
