Areas of interest on this website:

Off the beaten path travel

I love to explore places that are more unique, less traveled. Some people call this off-the-beaten-path. I call it weird and nerdy travel as most of my travel highlights are to do with weird and nerdy things.

You can find these here: Weird-Nerdy Travel

What’s your bliss? Hopefully I can help.

Book & movie recommendations (mostly travel related)

I love reading. I love books. You should too. It’s one of the best ways to build your focus. And everybody knows that focus and concentration are the new superheroes.

I also love bookstores, libraries, and other unique book places (I also feature these places and my weird & nerdy travel stories)

When I read a book that I like, I share it with you. You can find book recommendations here: Book-Talk

On books, reading + the hippest places in town (aka bookstores):

How to read more & read longer. It’s about improving your concentration.

Can a book help you find true love? This one may (or at least help you figure out what in the world true romantic love feels like).
