I just want to apologize for taking a three-month-long break. These past three months have been really awful and rough. I lost someone really close to me to cancer. It was so rough, I got suck into a spiral of depression and lost my motivation to do anything. However, I bounced back. MY loved one wouldn’t want me to be sad. They would want me to keep moving forward. Thank you for the support since we stop posting. The blog still grew without posting. You all are awesome! We hope that 2021 will be a great year for you and the world! We still start posting once again. It will be once a week for now. Remember to keep your head up during dark times and keep pushing forward!
Great news to travelers and the world!! As the world is slowly going back to normal. More countries are opening up to Americans. This means Canada, the Uk, and the Eu are now having more countries accept their tourists as well. Although, I’m still a little salty about my trip to Finland being canceled(EU make Americans travel again!). ps,I’m not trying to get political here. I’m just poking fun at the real reason why the Europe union doesn’t want Americans in their borders. Hint: Cheetos
It’s has been hard for all of us this year. A lot of us have lost our jobs, love ones, and/or homes. These times have been hard to keep positive. Having what you love the most, taking away from you has felt like we lost the ability to move around with freedom. The fact that more countries are now allowing Americans to travel into their borders has brought light into a dark room. It shows we are heading in the right direction.
Make sure to keep a positive mindset in these times. Even though we are heading back to the norm. The virus is still out there. Remember to wash your hands and wear a face mask when you travel.
These are the countries allowing Americans: Albania, Aruba, Armenia, The Bahamas, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belarus, Brazil, Cambodian, Croatia, Dominica, Dominican Republic, UAE, Ecuador, Egypt, Ethiopia, French Polynesia, Ghana, Grenada, Haiti, Honduras, Ireland, Jamaica, Kenya, Maldives, Malta, Montenegro, Morocco, Namibia, Rwanda, South Korea, St. Barts, St. Lucia, St. Maarten, St. Vincent and Grenadines, Tanzania, Turks and Caicos, The UK, Mexico, North Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey and Zambia.
Keep in mind, most of the countries have restrictions. You need to show you have tested negative on covid.
That is a lot of countries compared to a few months ago when it was only 14 countries. I don’t recommend traveling internationally until they have a vaccine. One that works and doesn’t cause harmful side effects. I’m really happy the travel industry is on the revival. I haven’t set foot on a plane since I came back from Wuhan in December. Still hard to believe I was there during the time when outbreaks just started. What is crazier is that I have tested negative for the Antibodies. Meaning I never got the virus, truly lucky.
Thank you so much for reading! Stay safe everyone! Wash your hands! Much Love! Sorry for not posting last week. I needed the time to sleep and relax. I wasn’t trying to burn out. Thank you so much for your support!!

Just wanted to say thank you so much for reading my travel stories. I know I mentioned this serval times before; however, I’m always humbled to see the support you all give us. I’m really honored that you all enjoy what I write. Growing up, my worst subject in class was English. Now, people from all over the world read what I write. It’s mind-blowing to even think about it.
Writing this post just to inform you all about a few updates on this blog. On Tuesdays, we will have posts about travel destinations and things to do there. I wrote a few posts in this format before. It seems like you all enjoyed it! I have to start doing this until we are safe to travel again. I have been doing some domestic traveling. However, not enough to keep posting consistently on Tuesdays. Also, I really don’t feel comfortable on airplanes right now. I still have plenty of stories to write about my travels. Yet, I’m not sure how long this current state of the world will continue. So, Saturdays will be like normal and Tuesdays will be this new format.
Once again, thank you all. I really love traveling. It’s my passion to go to other countries and learn about different cultures. Being stuck for 8 months has been a different and difficult experience. I’m sure all of you have felt a similar way. Will do my best to reply to all of the comments. Ironically, I’m not traveling now but I’m actually even busier. I wish you all luck, positivity, and good health. Much love to all of you. Keep safe and stay healthy!
Walking deeper into Hyde Park, I noticed a body of water. Started walking towards it. When I came next to the river, there were kids and their parents throwing pieces of bread. Of course, they were doing this to attract ducks and geese.
The kids were having so much fun. This reminded me of my childhood. The times I spent with my parents at the local park. Instead of feeding the ducks and geese, my childhood friends and I used to annoy the feathered animals. We used to chase them while screaming at them. After some time, they would start chasing us back. The tables were flipped and we were the ones running away.
Seeing this warmed my heart. Sometimes, I can’t believe how much of a trouble maker I was. Nothing like these kids at the park. All this made me think of how would life be like as a father. I just hope my children are not like how I was. If they are, I will not have a fun time.
After getting lost in my thoughts, I was snapped back into reality. A bunch of ducks started grouping around me. The pieces of bread were being thrown near me. Got out of the way like a deer running from headlights.
Eventually, I started throwing bread at the ducks. Following the lead of a young couple that kindly let have some bread. I felt like a kid again. On my face was the brightest smile. It was as if, my inner-child came to know peace. Who would had thought a simple act of bread feeding animals by a river could be so reflective and healing.
Stay safe everyone and remember to wash your hands!

In a country where I grew up. Where I learn to love it because this is my home. I’m constantly being reminded that I’m of lesser quality just based on my skin color. It stings but I still smile and I would never purposely cause harm on anybody.
I still smile because I have hope. Hope for a better future where everybody gets equal treatment. I know this may seem naive but hope is what got me through some really dark times. Regardless of religion, gender, race or sexual orientation. You are a person over everything.
I don’t agree with the looting and destruction of the local businesses. However, I can understand why they do it. Two wrongs don’t make a right. We need peace.
Through my travels, I learned to love people. People from all different backgrounds. Regardless of what their opinions are. I have friends who are Jewish, Christians, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Spirtual and everything else in between. I have friends who are far right and friends who are far left. At the end of the day, we are human beings. These labels we put on yourselves just divides us. Letting us be easily controlled by others’ agendas. We should learn to understand each other. It’s okay to disagree but never take the life of someone.
Hopefully, what is going on in the world will spark a postive change.
Rest in peace to all those who lost their lives due to hate and ignorance. Your lives matter!!
Sorry everyone for not replying to the comments the last week or so. I will finish as much as I can in the following days.
As the number of covid-19 cases continue to grow around the world, we just want to wish you and your love ones health. Also, the random person down the street. These are hard times. However, we will pull through. Always keep a bright outlook even if everything is falling apart because you have the privilege to live another day. A lot people don’t have that.
Currently, I’m in the epicenter of the USA right now. The hospital nearby my home has been filled with confirmed cases. The death toll has risen like crazy in Brooklyn. The hospital near me had to get 4 refrigerated trucks to fill them with dead bodies because their morgue is full. This is no joke and this is not something to be taken lightly.
Let’s this be a wake up call to show you that people are all the same. Regardless of their political affiliation, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or how much money someone makes. We are people first! United we stand divided we fall. From the small towns to the big cities, we will get through this together. If we were more honest to each, this virus probably wouldn’t grown into such a huge problem.
I have no fear because I know love always shine!
Much love and safe travels! Please keep clean everyone!! Wash your hands!!
