Sharing yourself

Since starting this blog I never knew how much of an impact it would have to share yourself. I recently wrote a letter to a professor that has deeply impacted my view on life. She has furthered this view on the importance of sharing yourself.

Value Yourself

Sometimes in life things have to go to a complete meltdown to realize something we should have before it went downhill.

To Create

A couple of weeks ago I was introduced to a video series dealing with entrepreneurs and dreamers. I viewed these mini documentaries and they were quite inspiring.

New Paths

A new road is sometimes difficult to choose. You don't know where it leads you might not even know where it will end, but the journey might just be worth it.

Books for Bloggers

So I mentioned yesterday in a vague manner (sorry I was excited) that I would be holding a contest and giving away books. Here is a little more insight into what exactly I am referring too.

Shared Interests

One thing I have noticed since starting this blog is how connected we all are. I realize this more than ever when I encounter others who share my interests.

Simply Moving

 Photos are an amazing thing, they can move you, disgust you, excite you and evoke many other emotions.

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

I wish I could do that !

The title for this post is a phrase I have heard for years now from friends, acquaintances, etc. Since I started this blog and started to travel I always get the common response....

Monday, July 18, 2011


Continuing on the theme of positivity from recent posts. I have come across yet another outlet of something positive. This time it comes in form of a magazine.

I came across this magazine from a blog I follow that I've highlighted before named Man vs Debt. The magazine recently ran a article on the creator of Man vs Debt, Adam Baker. As noted before he is a Man who paid off all his debt, and with his family began to live a life he and his family wanted.

Fear Less is a magazine aimed at showing its readers that fear does not have to hold you back. You can remove fear and fulfill whatever it is you want to be or do! Highlighted in this most recent issue are some amazing stories of living without fear and going for it !

Best of all Fear.Less is an all Digital Magazine free of charge and readable over the internet. So please take some time and be Fear.Less.

Here is a link to the Magazine.

Fiverr ....As in $5 to get some good work !!

So as some may see there is a new logo on the website! I am very proud of the old logo as it was my creation, but this new one was done by a professional and for a simple $5.

I was told about a website named,  where a various amount of people of different professions and randomness charge $5 to do an assortment of things. I have been wanting to try this out for a while and finally had a project I was willing to pay the money for.

I am very happy the way the logo came out and it was done in 1 day! This person did a great job and made two variations of my old logo. I will be using this from here on out.

Go check out what you can get done for $5!!

AC = Atlantic City= Party=Leggo !!!

On my most recent trip I took a 24 hour drink/party excursion to Atlantic City. This trip was planned as a Guy's Trip by my friend Drewy. In 24hours on the boardwalk we managed to shut down the beachfront bar (party wise), Get lost, Eat, Jacuzzi with swedes, get drunk even more, get lost (again), and to top it all off one of us woke up in the hospital! That is the definition of a Guy's Trip in AC. So to that I say  this time next year .....LAS VEGAS 2012!!!! Party End of the World STYLE !!!!

To my team in AC I Salute you!

 And here's the fallen teammate (this is for you Ryan)

Party Rocking !

So as with the spirit of traveling also comes the enjoyment of having a good time. Recently Red Foo of LMFAO was in Providence to guest DJ at club Monet. The party was crazy and a blast ( from what I remember) ....These guys are all about Party Rocking and they definitely didn't let us down !

Here's some Pictures from that Night (provided by Club Monet)

Stuck at the Airport

As I recently experienced it's not the most joyous experience spending an overnight in an airport. 

I saw this funny video of two travelers stuck at Dallas Ft Worth Airport. If I had high end camera equipment and could re-live my overnight in Chicago I would have done the same exact thing!

If you haven't seen the video check it out below:

:: Define Optmist ::

This week I'm feeling very positive from my TOMS post earlier this week, to this posting. This is a little off topic with the intention of this blog, but it's the backbone that energizes this mentality, this quest.....Optimism.

Its funny with this title I chose. This is the exact heading I chose to search in google and here is the result:

Optimistic  -n

  1. The tendency to expect the best and see the best in all things
  2. hopefulness; confidence 

I always tend to see things in a positive light. I would much rather focus on the positive things life has to offer than the negative that constantly surrounds us. I see this in all places I visit. I always seem to come across people in my travels that are genuine life living  people. People that are enjoying life and all it has to offer. I always looked at these people as an outsider...I wonder how do these people get to do this?? I realize now that these people choose not to be constrained.... they just GO ! 

I don't want to drag this post out so I end this with a qoute from a truly great movie!

" For what it's worth: it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again."

The Positivity of Giving

I am constantly on the lookout for inspirational, positive  material to share. This positivity can come from people and their stories, charities and their donations,  or even companies doing positive work to make an impact on this Earth. I have come across many positive things since starting this blog one of those being a company called TOMS.

I posted something back in April about this company and the One for One motto. It goes like this... for every pair of shoes they sell they donate a pair of shoes to a child in need. After checking out the many selections of shoes, 

I picked my Botas as there called.

A few months later with some compliments ,and breaking in I can say I love the shoes, and especially like that my purchase had a positive effect !

I fully support this brand and the work they do. So now brings me to what this post is about. Recently TOMS launched an eye wear collection. Launched in support of the vision problem many less fortunate individuals face in other parts of the world. The concept is the same but the product has changed. Now for every pair of glasses they sell they will donate a pair of eye wear to someone truly in need of it.

So again I pass this on to the readers of this blog in hopes that you will make a purchase,  and take part in the One for One movement. I for one will make a purchase in support of this and post it when I receive the glasses.

I've also attached the video unveiling the new collection and the purpose behind it...PLEASE WATCH!!!

After watching feel free to visit the TOMS website:

Inspiration !

I start this post reflecting on where life has taken me in the last 2 months. I have opened my eyes to the things I want to do in life. I have allowed myself to stop thinking and start doing ! This doing has taken me to London, Las Vegas in one year almost back to back with no end in sight !

I have come across amazing, inspirational material through ordinary people and their amazing stories. I now see that if you seek out the positive it will find you as well. I continue to come across material that backs up where I'm heading in life. This blog was started with the intention to travel and continue that dream forever. I not only want to travel, but I would like to immerse myself within another culture... possibly for an extended period of time and then continuing to another and another! Breaking from the norm here in the U.S and to starting a new beginning a beginning where I start doing MORE! and stop thinking LESS!

I would love to share this information that I have come across in the last few months. I know not all people will see this in the same light...but for those who do I'll meet you on the other side !

Inspirational Blogs:

Man vs Debt

( A Blog about a man and his family who had acquired a huge amount of debt living a lifestyle that wasn't their own . So in turn they payed down all their debt and sold everything. They then began to travel the world! )

4inWorld ( Travelpod Blog)

( A similar story in which a family came to realize that what they had wasn't what they wanted. So naturally they sold everything and began traveling through Italy where they currently reside!)

Timothy Ferris ( 4 hour work week/body)

( A man that has stopped living the rat race and started doing things his way. Through his many failures he has accomplished many more successes! )

also check out his great book ( which I am currently reading...Amazing!) :

As I start to piece this puzzle together to see what moves I can make to fulfill this dream, I leave with this quote:

"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"

"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat

" I don't much care where..." said Alice.

"then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.

-Lewis Carroll, Alice in wonderland

The world is in your hands Grab it!

Viva Las Vegas !!

So here it is folks the pics from LAS VEGAS ! A city that has become dear to my heart. I call it the Disney world for adults !! This is my second trip to Sin City and I had such a blast on this trip.

The whole reason for the trip was to Jump off the Stratosphere, a 855ft guided jump ! I was not able to complete this last year due to a hangover so this year I made it the priority. I met up with some buddies from East to West and Even a random Spaniard LOL !

I would love to post all the pics but there is far to here are the one's for I <3 Travel!

Traveling Trips

On this most current trip I took to vegas I learned some valuable traveling trips. Some of this information will pertain to some people some of it might not just thought I would share.

Tip 1 : There of Good days to travel and bad days to travel

             Good Days = Tues, Thurs, Sat
             Bad Days = Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun

Tip 2: There is community of travelers out there that use "Buddy Passes" or "Non-Revenue" passes. These passes allow you to get on a flight for free but you will be traveling by standby. Its seems like a great deal but there is always a catch.

The most important tip I would say when traveling with these..( This knowledge was passed on to me by an avid buddy pass traveler) Get to the airport early , and I mean opening early ! If you intend for a good chance of getting to your destination. If you can't get an early flight..Leave! And try another day. I learned this the hard way spending 10 hrs back and fourth between terminals.

Tip 3: If you ever find yourself in Vegas and plan on clubbing or getting VIP understand that this will be expensive. Take this into account and either bring a big group of friends/family to split the costs. Surprisingly partying in vegas is something that can't be compared too and you might find yourself partying with celebrties!!

I hope this information helps someone...or just keeps you from sleeping in an airport!

The View I love !

This is a shot that I love to see. The classic out the window view from a plane taking me to a new destination! It never gets old!!

So now that I have arrived in Vegas I will be doing my best when sober to update the Blog.

The Intinerary: Get Drunk
                 Jump off Stratosphere (Pics will hopefully be Included)
                 Get more drunk and go swimming

I will be putting this mobile blogger app to the test this weekend ...stay tuned!

Love for Providence !

So it seems people from across the pond have caught on to the this little old city we call Providence. Let me start this by saying this was brought to my attention by a friend of mine who wear Providence on his chest....I mean if he ripped off his shirt a giant "P" emblem would be under it coming to the rescue of his beloved city!

So it comes as no surprise he found this article in the Telegraph newspaper from the UK spotlighting Providence. I personally have grown to love Providence a bit more since exploring some of what it has to offer. From the diverse food scene, to the diverse bars, and the beautiful water fire.... it is a city that has slowly gained my acceptance.

So I share with you all, some people who reside in Providence or RI, and some who can gain some insight in what it has to offer... read up and come visit!

I Heart Travel Official Pictures !

Folks there finally in ! I know it was nearly a month ago I promised these pictures would be taken but thanks to some non compliant weather, laziness, and procrastination they have been sitting in my head for the last month or so ! Well wait no longer they are now here !

I chose a spot here in providence they call "The View" it's located near Brown University, its a small little park with a beautiful view of downtown providence. I enlisted the help of my friend Jeff( who has an amazing camera!)...The first pics will be a little more professional/official looking then pictures in the future for two reasons.

1. I want them to be less setup, and more taken while enjoying whatever location I find myself in.

2. Camera's of this caliber are expensive ! So my little handheld will do for now ! ( love you Lumix)!
