NOLA – Voodo and Bourbon

For most people, Labor Day means two things: a day off and a chance to say goodbye to the summer. But why is it called Labor Day? Labor Day is a day set aside to pay tribute to working men and women; it honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made…

Happy Constitution Day, Bergen!!!

Our flight to Bergen arrived really late, but we were still able to see the mighty Norwegian Fjords from the air. We were so lucky to choose the hostel right above the loudest hostel in the city so since we couldn’t sleep we walked around to see the excitement but didn’t last long because we…

Trippy Santa Fe

So, join us for a pictorial reenactment of our Fez exploration. This guy…

I Sneeze Dead People

We started our morning with the market tour, we visited 4 different markets around the old city of Varanasi. The first one was the Paan leaf market, remember on the last post that weird dessert made of multiple herbal ingredients that you need to put in your mouth all at once? Well, here they buy…
