Trip Report: Puglia (Apulia) Italy Part II

At the conclusion of June I rented a car and drove south down the Adriatic coast of Italy. In English, the region I explored is called Apulia. Italians call it Puglia.

The region's white washed ancient architecture, sprawling groves of olive trees dotted with repurposed farm houses, cliff and rock formations, sandy white beaches, and abundant produce alchemize to form a truly enchanting atmosphere.

Trip Report: Iberia A330 Business Class from São Paulo to Madrid

Very early on May 25 I flew from Buenos Aires, Argentina to São Paulo, Brazil.

Belavia Trip Report

This year I flew Belavia--Belarus's flag carrier--from Nice, France to Minsk, Belarus, and from Minsk to Prague, Czechia.

(I spent five days in Belarus visa-free under the new policy that allows such visits. Here is my experience with the five-day visa free program.)

Flying Belavia was mostly like flying a normal airline with a few exceptions.
Check In
Check in in Nice started two hours before departure and was handled by non-Belavia employees.

Guide to Zagreb, Croatia

Lonely Planet just named Zagreb, Croatia #1 on its "Best in Europe" hot list for 2017. I've spent the last three months here, so here's my guide to Zagreb.
Overall
It's laughable for Lonely Planet to tout Zagreb as the #1 destination in Europe. It doesn't stack up against other destinations like Paris, London, or Prague for sights, things to do, food, or along other typical tourist dimensions. Nor is it an undiscovered gem.

Video of Me Hitchhiking in Patagonia (Argentina to Chile)

Last week, I flew from Buenos Aires to Rio Gallegos, Argentina with no intention of going to Rio Gallegos, Argentina. Instead, my plan was to walk out of the airport, stick my thumb out, and try to get a ride to Puerto Natales, Chile, where I met my friend to hike Torres del Paine National Park.

Why hitchhike last week?

It was a goal of mine to try hitchhiking once in my life.
Rio Gallegos airport is 3:22 driving from Puerto Natales, Chile.
