Bangkok Travel – Everything you need to know Bangkok has a lot to offer as a city. It is cheap, has amazing food, and it’s fair share of things to see. It’s worth noting, here are some things to watch for as well (with any big city). This is a quick run down of what […]

If you’ve been to, researched, or plan to go to Thailand I am 99% sure you’ve seen photos of tourists, with or on top of elephants. When planning our trip to Chiang Mai, elephants were a must for me. But we knew that riding the elephants was bad for them and that the elephants are […]

THE ROAD TRIP “HOW” We knew upon arriving in Krakow, Poland that we wanted to see other months. Originally the plan was to visit various cities via weekend trips during our one month stay. But we decided to extend our trip one more week in order to do a Polish road trip and hit all […]

I don’t think these takeaways are going to be what you expected, but I 100% think they are worth sharing. And my hope is that you would be challenged to learn something from them.

Prague was our last stop on our road trip from Budapest. In case you missed it, my two previous posts cover Vienna, Austria and Ljubljana, Slovenia.

We arrived in Vienna from Ljubljana in the evening and had ONE DAY (the following day), to explore all that is Vienna. This city is the grandest European city we’ve seen to date. The buildings are extremely well kept, painted white, and the city as a whole is unbelievable clean for a large city. With […]

Ljubljana in November If you missed it, this visit to Ljubljana was round two for us. We knew our friend Matt would love this city, so we decided to start our road trip from Budapest here, in the quaint city of Ljubljana. You’ll notice a significant difference between the photos from our first visit and […]

The FitsPRO Podcast episode five is not about fitness or business but a huge part of my life in 2018/2019. WORLD TRAVEL. If you’re looking for fitness tips today is not your podcast. If you’re curious about what it took for Nate and I to pack our bags and make the world our home for […]
