Dec 07, 2011 No Comments

Stolen from Thought Catalog: “Two cats is a perfectly reasonable number of cats. No one will question two cats — unless you’re a man maybe. Three cats, and you can only be a cat person. Four cats, and you’re a crazy cat person. Five cats, and you’re an animal hoarder. This is a bunch of […]

My bother is weird. I’ve always known this. He embraces it. It’s par for the course for the Fails children. While he was here in Denver, we went to the REI flagship store. It’s the best outdoor store ever invented. This one comes with it’s own rockclimbing wall inside. Just in case you want to […]

If I had to pin down the thing I missed the absolute most it would be KC BBQ. There are differing opinions on the best BBQ in the States. There’s Texas, or Carolina, or Montana. But my money is always on KC. More specifically Bates City BBQ. A tiny hole-in-the-wall town outside of KC. This […]

The house situation is enough to make your head explode. Here’s how it goes. There’s dad’s house, mom’s house, the summer house and the NEW summer house. Saying you’re heading back to the house can get slightly confusing. But let’s focus on the NEW summer house, though it does need a better name. Last year, […]

I’ve pretty much seen every scam in the book on this trip, I’ve been gone long enough. But this one? This one took the cake. I’m walking down from my hostel this morning when suddenly there’s this 10 year old boy walking along with me. He keeps talking to me in Turkish, which of course, […]

Jul 19, 2011 1 Comment

After traveling through 4 countries, drinking countless beers and having a truly fantastic time, our little American trip parted ways. Matt and Merrit were off to save the world, or at least build a house for Habitat for Humanity while I was going to continue to be a lazy bum traveler. Go me! To commemorate […]

The Jam Conspiracy

Full Disclosure: I did not write this quote. I merely found it in the Travel Tips book in my current hostel and felt it was too hilarious to pass up. I also believe that it must have been written by my friend Matt Williamson even though he has never been here. He would understand this […]

With my two new American best buds, Matt and Merrit, we set out to celebrate the 4th of July! First stop of the night was the St. Wenceslas Brewery in town. This little microbrewery made some damn fine beer. I had their signature St. Wenceslas brew, a really good copper beer. Merrit gave the sour […]

Some H&M for Em

Jun 27, 2011 1 Comment

So I have a confession to make. I thought that H&M, the most wonderful clothing store, was from the UK. Prob cause Em told me about it and she studied abroad in Scotland.  I sadly did not know I was mistaken in this belief until I walked into the Flagship Store in Stockholm, Sweden and […]
