This giant prayer house in the Indonesian jungle is shaped like a chicken. I have seen a lot of churches in my day, but never actually worshipped in one. Maybe it’s because nobody has created a church for the god that I worship yet; The Church of Browsing The Internet. I know for a fact though, that most churches aren’t shaped like poultry. Created by an eccentric man named Daniel Alamsjah, the ... More...

Every year in the summer, Japan’s Toyama Bay is lit up with blue firefly squid. I have seen bioluminescence before at a particularly disgusting beach in Long Island. Unfortunately the water was so gross I barely dipped a hand in to play with it, but I can tell you that bioluminescent bays are definitely something everyone should experience in their lives, especially when firefly squid are involved. Every year... More...

I recently stayed at the Hyatt Aruba and loved it. Here’s a recap of my experience. There’s a certain level of stress and bleh (bleh is the official, scientific term) that comes with calling NYC home for more than a few months.

JetLev is my new fave water sport, here’s why you need to get involved: Until about a week ago, I hadn’t even heard of JetLev. In fact, when I first saw it a few days ago during my recent stay at the Hyatt Aruba, I was taken aback by the futuristic-looking contraption that laid in the water between taking customers on airborne joy rides. Frankly, it looked like a torture device until I sa... More...
