I’m not sure why I keep getting sucked up into these time warps. As each day passes, I am one day older… and one day further from my last blog post. [If you have a solution to keep me on top of this, let me know!] It’s not like so many cool things [...]

Finding Happiness

I personally think the most interesting place to watch people is the airport. There, you really see the insanity of it all. Recently I sat in Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport waiting for my connecting flight to Zurich before heading to the center of the universe: New York City. I saw all kinds of interesting [...]

Coffee and Enlightenment, Please

I found myself getting a little annoyed. Okay, more than a little. I could blame it on my lack of coffee, or my lack of enlightenment, but aren't we all entitled to get frustrated every now and then? The flight attendants serving the complimentary beverages on Flight 2051 from Zurich to Budapest were not moving [...]

Is Anyone Listening?

Sai, a member of our PitchRate community, recently sent me this story his grandfather told him about Saint Narada and Lord Vishnu, the God of creation in Hinduism: Saint Narada prided himself on being Lord Vishnu’s most devoted follower. One day, Narada found the Lord praising a farmer for his own devotion. Outraged, Narada asked [...]

When Is Enough, Enough?

Am I crazy? I ask myself this question a lot and I keep getting the same answer… but I’ll let you decide. Here I am, sitting in a youth hostel in the middle of Serbia. What exactly is a youth hostel doing in a small Serbian farming village, you might ask? Fazekas Róbert, the town’s [...]

I had no clue what the Serbian reporter was asking me. Thank goodness Oscar was there to translate the conversation. I met Oscar earlier this spring on CouchSurfing.com when we couldn't find a pet-friendly place to stay in Serbia. While we weren't exactly in the market for a couch to sleep on, I thought the [...]

Are You Speaking a Foreign Language to Your Target Audience?

The view from our apartment balcony, looking toward the Old Town of Dubrovnik. George Bernard Shaw was enchanted by this beautiful city, about which he said, "Those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik and see Dubrovnik”. I spent almost three months in Croatia last winter and I distinctly remember stepping out of the shower one [...]

The Prophet on the Train

Who knew my journey from Budapest to Subotica recently would prove to be such a learning experience? From the first lunge of the train, to Andreas storming through my cabin, it was an interesting ride to say the least. The trip was probably the most surreal three hours of my life. From the moment Andreas [...]

This piece of art hangs on our living room wall over the sofa in Budapest I’m usually less than excited to receive any kind of marketing email in my Inbox. But one day, the subject “Seeing through Confusion” grabbed my attention. It might have had something to do with the fact that I actually was [...]
