I Booked a One Way 12 AM Ticket Home and I Don't Know When I'm Coming Back
On Tuesday, I was tired, sad, and restless. I had been sad for the past couple of weeks. Restless. Uncertain of a lot of things. I haven't been sleeping well for like, two weeks now. Moving has been a lot of things but it's mostly been tiring—emotionally draining. But late on Tuesday night, I just decided I was done. I felt this massive urge to go home all day and I couldn't shake it. I needed to go home, see my home. Be in my house. Ride my bike to my favorite coffee shop in the morning and say...

Growing up on 56th Street in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn of the late 60s and early 70s was a young boy's paradise. As close as a city kid could get to a Huck Finn or Tom Sawyer-like existence. The front door ...

North Sentinel Island Has the Last Unconnected People on Earth 🌎
Earth is a very massive planet that has come a long way through our technological advances. It may be hard to believe that there are people who don’t know about a cell phone or computer. Although it has become a known fact that there aren't any uncharted places left, with the exception being the North Sentinel Island. The island is part of the Andaman group of islands in the Bay of Bengal. You may wonder how those inhabited on the island haven't come to learn from us. The Sentinels keep any indi...

Small Experiences Teach Life Changing Lessons

Giving Up: The Road Too Often Travelled
Travelling for me was a way to escape, as it is for a lot of people. Though I knew this at heart, I don't believe I ever allowed myself to admit it. When I left my job to travel through India, I saw i...
