[Travel Advice] Ubud, Bali

Random Observation/Comment #526: Napoli and now Ubud – I think I’m unintentionally following the path from Eat, Pray, Love. Bali is a pretty big Island packed with hidden gems and beautiful culture. One may think it’s all about the beaches and surfing, but the side streets and temples really make this place alive. The Balinese people also fully complete the package....

[List of 30] Internship Tasks

Random Observation/Comment #519: Internships are just 10-week 2-way interviews. If you’re smart, we’ll want to hire you and then we’ll try to impress the crap out of you so you accept. This is the 5th year managing the summer intern projects, and I’ve always had a good time being a mentor (and overall having coffee with everyone). Since I’m all about...

[Travel Advice] Norway Activities

Random Observation/Comment #284: If there’s nothing to do, go eat something. If it’s too expensive to eat, go get drunk. If it’s too expensive to get drunk, go take a nap. For context on the socialism and pricing piece of Norway, please first read the previous post. Things Norway does well: Infrastructure and cleanliness Men seem more attractive than women...

[30 Day Challenge] 30 Things I want to do

Random Observation/Comment #457: When you want to do something, it doesn’t seem like work. In fact, there’s not enough time when you’re having fun. Why This List? There’s always something we want to do in the immediate and short term that leads to the obtaining of status, skills, knowledge, or material goods in the future. I want to focus this...

[Travel Advice] Boston

Random Observation/Comment #434: It’s important to differentiate a sports rival hatred with travel advice. It’d be unfair to judge Boston based on the Bruins or Red Sox rivalry, but man do they suck. Things Boston Does Well: College campuses. Harvard, MIT, North Eastern, and Boston University all have beautiful campuses for walking and crashing their local tours. I’d really just...

[Travel Advice] Brazil – Rio de Janero and Parati

[Travel Advice] Brazil – Rio de Janero and Parati

Random Observation/Comment #357: “There are no pretty women in Brazil.” is what I practiced saying to my gf throughout the trip. Things Brazil Does Well: Churrascaria (A.K.A. Brazilian barbecue, A.K.A. all-you-can-eat meat heaven) is awesome and relatively cheap. You must do this at least once while you’re here and you’ll be mighty satisfied afterwards. Eat all the meat. Note that...

[Travel advice] Montreal

[Travel advice] Montreal

Random Observation/Comment #348: There’s something about listening to Rhapsody in Blue live that just makes the whole vacation better. Things Montreal Does Well: Architecture of common houses.  Driving through Montreal, I just noticed there was something commonly interesting about all the apartments – they all have balconies and really high ceilings. These apartments are all 2 or 3 story NYC...

Icelandic Journey with Friends

Icelandic Journey with Friends

Random Observation/Comment #274: I love adding things to my bucket list unintentionally and then checking them off immediately. Dog sled across a glacier. Check. Eat Minke Whale. Check. Gadinkadurgen to all (don’t try to look up this word because you won’t find it). Iceland is an absolutely beautiful place filled with random acts of precipitation and sporadic weather representing all...
