Booze, Food, Travel
One man working his way around the world. Mostly drinks, food, and travel from my website, but also literature, language, and whatnot.

  • I started my current journey in Tokyo–I had wanted to visit Japan for a long time, and it was my first opportunity to travel to the country. Now, I find myself back in the Land of the Rising Sun, more specifically back in the same neighborhood in Tokyo.

  • Good to be back in #Tokyo. #travel #Japan (at Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan)

  • Venice airport was not designed to handle this many tourists. Never complain about EWR again. #travel #airports #crowds

  • Just getting lost in #Venice today. #travel #Italy (at Grand Canal)

  • In an effort to avoid riding the Circumvesuviana, the train line between Naples and Sorrento that was constructed by Julius Caesar, I took a tour of Pompeii and visited Berlusconi’s favorite brothel. 

  • View from above Assisi. #travel #Italy #nofilter #Umbria #ttot (at Rocca Maggiore)

  • Found on the wall of Dempsey’s bar in Perugia. Swear I didn’t write it. #travel #Italy (at Dempsey’s Perugia)

  • Perugia Chocolate Porter is pretty tasty. #beer #Italy (at Dempsey’s Perugia)

  • It’s a strange sense of curiosity that guides one to Iceland’s unique museum. I’m happy it’s the only one in the world; a second would be overkill. Welcome to the Icelandic Phallological Museum.
