Countries I’ve Visited

create your own visited country map or write about it on the open travel guide This one is really sad. I’ve only visited 5 countries: USA, Canada, Mexico, Bahamas and Brasil.

States I’ve Visited

create your own personalized map of the USA or write about it on the open travel guide I’ve visited 26 states. I think it’s a trip how few of the northern states I’ve been to.

Brasil Carnival Coverage

I hate that I missed carnaval in Brasil this year. Looking at the coverage on the web just makes my pain even worse. But hey, I’m a glutton for punishment.

There’s nothing like a good college basketball game. I just finished watching the Duke/North Carolina game. That game never disappoints, and tonight’s 83 – 81 overtime win by Duke sure lived up to the tradition. I can’t wait for the rematch in a few weeks, and this type of action is making me itch for… Continue reading Hell of a Game
