80 Days Montage!

A dream comes true. I’ve been wanting to see the world since I was young. The idea of the unknown, the different, and the unexplored has always been an interest of mine. Travelling the world in 80 days with Cathay Pacific Airways was my opportunity to do just that; to …

La Tomatina Festival, Bunol, Spain

Whoa! What a chaotic time in Bunol, Spain. La Tomatina is the world’s biggest food fight, and the ammunition of choice during this festival is the tomato… and boy does it sting like a bee. During the last Wednesday of August, the small town of Bunol, Spain swells to 4 times it’s …

Sleeping on the Great Wall, China

The Great Wall is usually the highlight of a trip through China. As far as UNESCO world heritage sites, or wonders of the world are concerned, I think it would rank consistently in the top 10. I said it’s visible from space, but I was just testing you to see …

Pandas at Chengdu Research Base, Sichuan, China

Alright…. they were cute. Almost too cute. I couldn’t believe how much the Pandas of Chengdu’s Giant Panda Research base were like I pictured them; round, fluffy, funny and almost like stuffed animals. Once noon hit, these hilarious bears were down for the count. It must be a tough life …

Fishing with Cormorants in Yangshuo, China

Here is where my 80 days with Cathay Pacific begins. Yangshuo, China is a backpackers paradise. With rooftop bars in the shadows of gigantic lime green karst mountains, it would be easy to fall prey to it’s laid back atmosphere and just watch the lines on the calendar fade away. The traditional …

Fishing and Nightlife, Yangshuo, China

From the floor of a train, to fishing with cormorants in Yangshuo, the first leg of my trip was spent in rural China. Backpacking through several cities really gave me new perspective on chinese people and culture. The Li River is famous for it’s karst formations, the limestone mountains the jut out of the landscape […]

Tour of Cathay Pacific Airways, Pearson International Airport, Toronto

Point A: Toronto, Canada. Point B: Hong Kong, China. Before I embarked to Travel the World in 80 Days with Cathay Pacific, I was given a quick tour of behind the CX scenes at Toronto’s Pearson Airport. I cooked with a wok, learned some Mandarin, and got see see what goes on behind that secretive […]

A Hike to Machu Picchu, Peru

The hike to Machu Picchu was long, hard and pretty much vertical. Looking back, I should have counted the steps. Not only did we walk to the entrance, we also hiked up to the peak of Huayna Picchu, as well as all the way to the Sun Gate where people enter from the Inca trail. […]

Breakdancing and the Tian tan Buddha, Ngong Ping, Hong Kong

We took a crystal cabin cable car to the top of Ngong Ping on Lantau Island, China. We were there to see the Tian tan Buddha, one of the largest in the world, but we also found the Drumpoline Music Carnival. After a small Breakdance battle on a trampoline, we hiked up the steps and […]

Hong Kong Overview

One of the world’s financial titans and a city with pulse of a helicopter, Hong Kong never sleeps. What to do in this city? Hopefully you can get some ideas of what to see when you visit. In this video I talk about the efficiency of the MTR and public transportation due to the octopus […]

Eating Tips, Hong Kong

When you pack your bags and head to another country, what’s the first thing you do when you arrive? If you said “hit the bar”, you’re in the right ballpark, but what I was aiming for was food. An important part of travel is getting a taste of what your destination has to offer, literally. […]

Hiking the Australian Outback

Australia’s Red Heart. 4 Days, 8 Locations. This is a swan dive deep into Central Australia. Bucketlist items checked off in this video are: visiting the legendary Ayer’s Rock, drinking from waterfalls in the Olgas and hiking along Kings Canyon’s rim. Big Ups to Intrepid Travel, their tours always blow me away. This trip was […]
