In Colombia...

In elevator of my Airbnb spot headed out..

Door closed...

Elevator started going down...

Lights started flickering in Twilight Zone fashion...

Elevator started free-falling...

My heart dropped...


We stopped...

Suspended in mid-air in an elevator shaft
The lights are still flickering...

None of the buttons are working...

The "phone" isn't functional...

Estamos en la costa, marika!

My buddy and I are breathing heavy...

The elevator is small...

And we're stuck...

Basically in mid-air.
We start trying to push the ceiling up...

Doesn't work.

We start trying to pry the door open...

There's a little light.

I'm yoked as hell at the time...

Benching 315 for reps.

So I slide my fingers in between the crack in the doors...

And damn near give myself a hernia...

As a child, how would you have liked moving schools in new cities with different cultures every 2-4 years?

Growing up in the #IndianArmy, I absolutely loved it! By the time I was 18, we had moved over 9 times across 9 states! #Diversity #India #TravelTuesday #IWS #VoicesIWS

Dominican Republic is one of my favorite countries on God's green earth.

People have always treated me damn good - minus Chapidoras ;(

And it's truly a tropical paradise.

But the spot isn't for the faint of heart...

I like a lil' rough around the edges shit every now & then.

Las Terrenas.

These campo kids from outside Las Terrenas thought it was cool my buddy and I were cruising around on ATVs on the beach.

All the kids called the one kid, "El Gordo" - which cracked me up

Las Terrenas.

The campo kids took a pic of me and my buddy.

Legit chilled with these little dudes all afternoon.

They took us to a swimming spot in the river that we would have never found otherwise.

Pretty pumped, as I channeled my inner @SCHM7DT and properly used a:

"You must be smokin' dicks."

This is the second time I've posted this particular tweet. The results were very different the first time - it received 26 replies in a very short span of time, none of which are visible. Best guess is that (possibly automated?) protected accounts reacted to the hashtag.

Recovering from surgery gave me time to reminisce…

On a past filled with enough memories to last a lifetime.

With that in mind, here’s a few off-the-beaten path cities in Latin America that I recommend.

And a few that blow.


~ Ibague, Colombia ~

I’d live here. All year.

Just loved the place.

It’s small, in the mountains, and there’s no tourism.

But the people are friendly, it’s cheap, and I felt insanely healthy here.

You could get a massive piece of baby beef for $6.

Not ideal for nightlife.
Plus, the city is close to Bogota, Armenia, Pereira, and Manizales.

All within a 1-4 hour bus ride away.

Lots of easy travel opportunities while living in Ibague.

→ How to Stay Healthy While Traveling the World...

In 11 Quick Tips for Nomads/Expats.



Always. Be. Walking.

The more you walk the better you feel.

Well, at least that’s true for me.

Not only does walking around a city ensure you get to know it better, but it’s ideal for recharging the batteries and getting rid of a hangover.

Just Join a Gym.

If you’re going to be in the city for more than a couple weeks, just join a damned gym already.

Sure, it’ll cost some money in certain places, but not lifting for weeks or a month is simply unacceptable when trying to stay healthy on the road.
