Gdansk, Poland: 3-Day Medieval Europe Travel Guide

After seeing a beautiful picture of the waterfront in Gdansk, Poland, I began planning my journey. Gdansk is located close to two other cities: Sopot and Gdynia. These three together are known as the Tri-City and you can spend several days relaxing and exploring.

Driving Around Mario Kart Style in Japan: Fun or Not Fun?

While in Osaka, I ended up going on the Mario Kart Osaka tour.  I picked up an International Driver’s Permit just to do this tour. It did come in handy though since [I needed to rent a car for a week in Okinawa].  The short […]
