Global Carnivalist Travels: Colombia

I had the pleasure of visiting Cartagena, Colombia in the first month of 2017. After visiting Panama last year, Colombia was added to my must visit list as I have continued to fall in love with Spanish architecture, the old school luxury and warmth. You don’t need to visit for a long time to enjoy […]

Global Carnivalist Travels: New Orleans

I had zero expectations when I boarded my flight for NOLA. Mostly because I’d gone there 10 years ago right after Hurricane Katrina plus there was no carnival or culture I was specifically interested in partaking in. However, New Orleans is known for their art, music, non-stop drinking along bourbon street and FOOD! We stayed […]

Global Carnivalist Travels: Greece

I’ve been on an adventure lately as you can see. Three countries in three months — that being said, in May, I visited Greece.

Global Carnivalist Travels: Peru

I had the pleasure of visiting Cusco and Lima in Peru. I honestly did not know what to expect, but i thought it would have been extremely warm, because it’s Central America. Of course I was mistaken. We went in June which is cold in Peru. We landed in Lima, Peru shortly after 10pm and was […]

Spend Money on Experiences, Not Things

Jay Cassano, a Brooklyn-based staff writer for Co.Exist wrote an interesting piece on how we spend our money. Most people spend their money on material items for numerous reasons, to show happy they are, how successful they are, or just in the pursuit of happiness. Cassano mentioned some research conducted at Cornell University by Dr. […]

Global Carnivalist Travels: Dominica

This is certainly a flash back post since my last trip to this island was in 2013. There’s so much to see but I  must admit it’s a quiet island. If you love lush mountains, outdoor activities (surfing, sailing, hiking, anything to do with nature) you will LOVE it here. It is one of the […]
