Weekender || New York Part II

leave a comment »

I’m going back.  I’ve been to NY many times before and each time I seem to enjoy myself more and more.  I was as cold as I think I have ever been, save for traveling in Prague and Berlin a year ago.  Had a little fun with layering up in the morning and definitely slapped a dent in my wallet.  I don’t really have the energy to recant everything that happened so I hope these pictures will do.

Autumn in Southern California is not always what you’d imagine.

Week 33 Roundup || Porsches in the Wild

with 2 comments

This is the first of a new weekly roundup of things seen across the web. Feel free to submit things for next week’s corral.

Porsches in the Wild are always eye catching. A Time to Get pleasures us with more great shots from his iPhone.

Lightweight Campers make me want to go on a really long hiatus across the country. Re-nest reports on a portable toilet too.

Fall 2010 Essentials: Heavy Tweed isn’t just a Fall 2010 essential, it’s a Fall for the rest of your life one, get it right Made to Measure!

Wasteland Festival Trailer is truly a fascinating looking trailer dug up by 2 or 3 things I know.  Let’s hope it’ll come by near me one day.

Weekender || Portland

leave a comment »

A city where you can drink free beer while making your own art in an art exhibit as a band from Eastern Europe rocks out about ganja.  Then you proceed to go biking with a basket of farmer’s market fruit to the other side of town, just so you can drink some coffee.  Enjoy…

Weekender || Berlin & Prague Part III: Street Art

with one comment

On a really rainy morning, I decided I was going to do something that would really give me a feel of what Berlin was really about.  Graffiti hunting.  Here’s what I found that was mildly to extremely interesting.  Gives you an idea of how grimy and progressive this city is (all in a good way).

I literally turned a corner to see this. Amazing giant graffiti by the artist Blu.

Weekender || Berlin & Prague Part II: Berlin

with one comment

Berlin hit me with a bunch of what I like to call “shock bullets”. Whether it was buildings, sights, graffiti, history, clubs, bars, people, food, I was left stunned by shock bullets whizzing by every hour or so.

You never know who you meet at various parts of the world who all of a sudden feel like old friends. It’s the beauty of traveling, like watching the water trickle down the window during a storm, and tons of them start merging together at who knows when. It was a rush, and a good time.

These pictures do Berlin no justice. I’ve been to 7 countries in the past 4 months, many of them bringing me the entire range of emotions, but none of them spoke the way Berlin did, which I found to be the most unique. Enjoy.

Flight to Berlin.

Weekender || Madrid & Cordoba

Literally realized I brought all my camera gear but a memory card halfway into the trip.  I guess you use whatever is in your arsenal.  Epic weekend.
