A Short Story.

A short story:  At 19, my Dad retired. That afternoon, before football practice, i called his office.  A woman answered the phone and said, ‘Sorry Yogi, he left but please let him know that he left his shoes in his office.’ Of course the next call was to him at home.  After congratulating him on moving on to the next phase of his #life i passed along the message about his #shoes being left under his desk. His reply, ‘Yea, I did it on purpose….

Travel love.

Travel love.  Where there is always a timetable… …yet never feeling teathered to an unwanted cable. Maybe that’s what makes it great… …it makes it uninhibited, without the games with a potential mate. It is honest, pure and authentic. Always fun… …like my Dad says? ‘Be sure to live a life with love, son.’ Some may say it is fleeting when abroad, and they may be right… …but I’d rather love like this, even if for only a night. Travel love.  #WhatsYourWalk

Feel the fear. And do it anyway.

Portugal.  One of the most breathtaking places this planet has to offer. City life. Countryside. And of course, a beach that many cannot rival. And today, was all about meeting her after only flirting with the waves of Portugal two years ago along the Camino De Santiago with my Dad. It began as a hesitant relationship. The wind was up and the crowd was full. The recommendation from the young man named Eduardo, who would become a good friend, was to rock booties, or sneakers,…

Our Alchemists.

Along the Spain countryside we drive – exploring each lonely road that is rarely traveled. As I stare out the window I laugh to myself…then out loud. Thinking back the furthest place from southern Spain and Andalusia…I think back to living in Dalton, PA. There, I truly only have one vivid memory. Each morning, myself and my three best friends would wake, meet on the corner of Main Street and North Turnpike, ball in hand and race to the Dalton Courts. For hours we would…

A Short Story from Father’s Day Weekend

A short story from Father’s Day Weekend…along my explorations in Madrid. Feel free to use the gallery below to accompany you while you read this :). –This past weekend, I channeled my inner Ethan Hawke and hopped on the Euro Rail to Madrid.  There, I explored my favorite park and then, found grass that could have passed for the most comfortable mattress I have ever napped on. And, yes, I took a nap and a selfie! What happened next is the equivalent to a walk off, triple double, 5 TD performance…

Traveling is Magical.

Traveling is magical.  From meeting strangers who become long term friends, people who you fall in love with for a few days or someone you meet randomly to only have a 3 hour conversation and never talk to again.  Yes, traveling is magical.  And I’ve heard many times that it too is ‘scary.’ In particular, solo traveling.  Leaving Ibiza and Barcelona today and it is as though I’ve known these two cities before when in fact I’d been to Barcelona 5 years ago and have…

#WhatsYourWalk 

When was the last time you asked your Dad a question you did not know the answer to? For the father’s out there, when did you sit your child down and tell him or her your story while listening to theirs? When did you spend a day together with no distractions? This Fathers Day let’s create the largest conversation around sharing simple joys with the ones we love. The challenge: for every son or daughter, ask your Dad a question you truly do not know…

Traveling.

Traveling. I wish i could describe it. Truly i do. Sitting on the ground at 11:42 pm in front of the Arc De Triupf, as a local guitar and bongo player recite Rodrigo y Gabriela, the only thing i can type is that the feeling of traveling matches the excitement of pre game, rivals the euphoria of making a game-winning play and relates to the uncertainty that becomes welcoming when outside of our comfort zone. For the last decade i’ve been dropping into unknown places…
