My hometown, San Francisco

Hey guys, sorry I did not post last week. I was with family that I have not seen in years. This post will be about my hometown San Francisco. 

San Francisco is the city of counter culture. Many movements started here like the gay rights and the free love movements. 

The city by the bay is famous of it’s bridges. One bridge that is usually left in the shadow is the Bay Bridge. This bridge was destroyed during the 80’s earthquake. It was rebulit and became a symbol to locals. We San Franciscans view this bridge as sign of inspiration to get back up when you fall. 

Coit tower, as shown in the picture above, is a beautiful landmark. Make sure visit it, when you are in the city by the bay.  There are paintings and artworks for sale.

San Francisco is the most beautiful city in California and the western hemisphere. My views might be a little biased; however, you can not blame me. When you come here, you will understand the reason people leave thier hearts in San Francisco. 

Thank you for reading!! Excuse the late post. Spending time with family is worth all the money in the world. Next week, we will  be in Munich, Germany. Stay safe!!

Taking the subway in Prague

If you are a long time follower, you would know how much I love subways. The whole thought about going to a different country, and/or city, and seeing how locals travel around is so fascinating to me.

It all starts in the morning with some potato dumplings.  Those dumplings would be awesome with some cheese. They are still good regardless but with cheese, they will be an awesome cheese filled dumpling! The only thing better than that is a cheeseburger from In and Out. 

Prague’s subway system is very modern. It felt like a fancier version of New York’s subway. 

When taking the subway make sure to have this ticket with you. If you lost it, you will have to buy another ticket to get back to where you are staying. 

This reminded me of star trek for some reason.

This is what stood out to me, the subway walls have carvings. Let’s see them try that in New York.

I love trolleys and light rails. Reminds me of my hometown, San Francisco. 

Thank you all for reading this post. Have a safe week and stay heathly. Much love! Next time we will be in Germany.  

Prague, The city that took my breath away

Has something so beautiful ever made you lose your breath? Well to me, that is Prague. The most beautiful city in Europe.

It’s hard to explain walking in the streets of Prague. One minute, you accidentally walk into a sex shop and the other, you forget how to breathe. Very turn takes your breath away.

As we walked around the city, we stopped by Saint Vitus Cathedral. I have never been so excited to be in a church. It was so beautiful!

It’s times like these, remind why I love traveling. Culture is so interesting!  It’s hard not to fall in love with this city.

We walked on the Charles Bridge. The scene was something else. This bridge felt very alive. It was a lot different from the bridges in america. The bridge seemed like it was made for walking. 

Thank you for reading my post!! Stay safe guys! Enjoy your week, keep healthy! Spread the love becuase right now America needs it!!!

A dark cloud over Auschwitz

I write this post in memory of my dear family friend, Ethel Siederman. She was a Polish jew, who’s family escaped Poland before being thrown into this camp of evil.  

Coming into the camp was heavy. We were all trying to be emotionally ready. Sadly, we were not. 

As we got to the camp, there was a sudden sadness that swept over us. Knowing that so many people died here, was brutally depressing. The smell of burning flesh, was probably the last sense of reality they had. The worst part, the camp goes on for miles. 

 

The picture above is the ruins of a gas chamber. As they were losing the war, the Nazis destroyed the gas chambers to hide the evidence. 

Hey ladies and gentlemen, I posted this today because it was the day she going to visit me. May she rest in peace. She helped my family out a lot. There was always a positive moment with her. At the age of 83, she was still traveling. 

Much love to you all!! Next week, it will be on a more positive note. We will be Prague!  Stay healthy!!!

Krakow, the untouched city

After spending time in krakow, the differences compared to Poland’s capital are highly noticeable. 

The city of Krakow, one of Poland’s older cities. Dating back to the 7th century, this city has always been a culture center for the country. 

Many of the city’s buildings, have been untouched nor modernised. Opposed to Warsaw, the city lost it’s soul due to the war, Krakow still has it’s roots. At times, you would feel as if the buildings bleed out history.  Almost as if, they want to tell you thier story. 

I just had to add food on this post. Best sausages ever!!!! Kielbasa was the only Polish food, I truly enjoyed. 

 Thank you for taking your time to read this post. Next week, it will be very emotional. We will be in Auschwitz. Have a great week and stay healthy. Much love!!

Keep moving forward, my life’s story

So, I have been wanting to do this for some time now. I wanted to write about my life to inspire others. Never really thought my life was interesting; until, a friend told me to start a blog. That blog became this. In this blog, I have written about the good times of me traveling the world. Life was not always great for me. There were times, I did not think my life was worth living. My teenager years were rough. I will share these events in my life, so it can inspire you to see a better future. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Also, no matter how hard life gets, keep a smile on your face. 
So, I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. During my childhood, my household was the average upper middle class family. My parents were both college educated. Everything was perfect, until the economy crashed down. Life became hard and money was not in abundance. That this time, my grandpa had fallen ill. He was on his last days. We could only afford one ticket at that time. My mother got to see her father scream my name, as he lost the will to live. At that moment, I made a promise to myself to always have some money leftover to travel when needed. 

A few years past, my friends and I saved up money to travel. The first place we went to was Panama. During this trip, my passion for travel was born. These friends, helped my start my first business. 

To not bore you all, all these negative events in my life became postive. In life, you must make the best out of any situation. I now own two businesses, have traveled to over 16 countries and four continents. Life gets better and remember to smile. That smile might help someone with thier hardships. 

Thank you for taking your time to read this!  Next time we will continue my travels in Poland. Love you all! Have a great week and stay healthy! 

Hiking on the outskirts of Warsaw

After touring Warsaw, we were invited to a hike on the outskirts of Poland’s capital. Naturally, we all jumped on the opportunity. The city life was losing it’s appeal. 

Poland’s countryside had such a mellow atmosphere. The people were much more friendlier than the city folk. When we were tired, one family invited us to thier home. Unfortunately, we had decline because we only had a certain amount of free time.

The countryside of Poland reminded me of a few Disney movies. There were times, I expected snow white to come out and sing. The beautiful scenery and the occasional train passing by, makes you look at the world in such a wonderful light.

The picture above is how the Polish take hikes (even without snow).

Thank you for taking your time to read this post. Sorry for not being able to post last week. I had my wisdom tooth pulled out.  Also, stop by my friend’s facebook page. She is an artist and showed me around Cairo. She is a good hearted person. Check out her art! Have a next week and stay healthy!!!
