  • 15-second story from Brasil

    Sunday, June 22, 2014

    About a week ago I was up late, exploring the web, watching some docs and exploring a few travel sites. Fairly standard operating procedure for my life. Around 11:44 p.m., it hit me–’Yogi, you need to be in Brasil for the World Cup.’ Over the next 15 seconds I checked my airline miles. Within another 15 beats a flight was booked. And after the next 15 moments on a clock my adrenaline was up. I was off to Brasil to watch USA face Germany. For…

  • Brasil & my first time

    Friday, June 20, 2014

    We all remember our first time…traveling. We meet amazing people, try unique food and witness cultures that we would not dream of. In 2009, I can recall my first time in Brasil. It was a nation that captured me from the moment my feet touched her ground. I can recall the passion and love spilling from every home into the streets. I can still smell the sweat from Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival celebration. I immediately smile when i think of the companion I met along…

The road ends here – Brasil Day 9

Wrapping up this incredible trip now. As I do with all my travels: At 19, my Dad retired from one of his careers. After calling his office to congratulate him, I was told he already left, but that his shoes were under his old desk. Of course I called home to tell him about his forgotten shoes… Only to hear a story that has forever impacted me. Thus, for the last decade I’ve left a pair of shoes at every stop along the way, signifying…

Brasil Day 8

Another awesome day here in Brasil. Enjoyed the day so much I took less pictures, but here’s a couple from a wild day where the host nation Brasil and neighboring country, Colombia, both advanced into the quarterfinal of the World Cup. ‘Come on in,’ said the Atlantic. During my morning surf session in Maracaipe: in honor of Brasil and Colombia advancing in the WorldCup, this is how we ride. Also, we need this in Venice:

Brasil Day 7

Off day in the World Cup meant more exploring this beautiful nation once again. Check out some the photos and stories from my seventh day in Brasil: After attempting these radically fast waves, got to watch this guy and what I imagined to be his 8 year old brother rip it on the beach of Maracaipe, Brasil: Between to PalmTrees, you always find amazing Street Art. ‘What are you looking at?’ said the chicken. ‘Same thing you were,’ said the tourist. ‘Just checking,’ replied the man holding a clock: You…

#15SecStory – Brasil Day 6

Spent another awesome day here in Recife, Brasil. Was unbelievable to witness Jurgen and the rest of the USMNT play one of the world’s greatest teams–and advance to the next round in the World Cup. Killer atmosphere. But the best part? Taking it all in with people from all nations. Clearly, the world’s game. Today’s motto: Live. Breathe. Futball. Thanks for following along, peace.

Hostel > hotel

#15SecStory – Brasil Day 5

Hostel > Hotel Hostels guarantee a few things: Night sweats, morning mosquito bites, cold showers and random dreams. The towels are traditionally of a brown tint and the walls full of old memories.Yet also a sure thing is good people, great conversation (even if you cannot understand the actual language spoken), incredible food and a feel for the local culture. After a while the brown tint is rather appealing and the wall of history becomes a memento of sorts…and every so often some good wifi appears.Thus,…

While working way up northern Brasilian coast came across this on the beach.

#15SecStory – Brasil Day 4

A week into Brasil and once more, I’ve fallen in love in this nation.But not to an individual, yet… To its local communities.This incredibly passionate and loving country is the host to millions from around the planet who have ventured to this dreamworld in South America.To witness, and be a part of, various cultures and traditions each day has been extremely unique. We are there for one another in celebration (Brasil victory) and heartbreak (Portugal v USA ending).We laugh, exchange Facebook info and begin relationships…

The silence between the notes & a dark walk home – Brasil Days 2 & 3 #15SecStory

Days 2 and 3 here in beautiful Brasil were all about: Surf. Walk. Explore. Repeat. Just can’t beat it. Silence is a unique thing. As a solo explorer for most of the last decade I’ve been able to witness silence in a variety of settings.Sunday night, while walking home from a day that was full of ferry, bus and taxi rides to the tropical city of Itacare, where many were able to share in Futball, food/drink, and many laughs silence did what she always does……

Got to explore Salvador and her surroundings all day while listening to this nation and futball fans continue their love affair with this global sport.
