The White Temple, Chiang Rai

Hands and arms slithered upwards towards the sky like a serpent from Hell. They grasped for thin air as if they were reaching for the Heavens in an attempt to escape their fiery fate. A gremlin snickered at their defeat, his tongue wriggled out of his mouth like a snake. Skulls sat on the lookout […]

Snapshots of Copenhagen

The man threw the stick into the air and watched as his dog bolted in its direction. The furry animal, with dark, stringy fur, picked up the stick with his mouth and brought it back to his owner. A woman in running gear jogged passed the dog and his owner. A faint smile appeared on […]

What I Spent in One Week While Backpacking in Costa Rica

After spending a week in Costa Rica, I’ve learned that it’s extremely beautiful, with its wide range of Pacific Coast beaches, day long hikes, and hidden waterfalls. With that being said, I’ve also learned that it can be pretty cheap- and also very expensive (I felt like I was in NY with some of the […]

Discoveries During Diving

I got to the bottom of the ocean and looked around. Everything was still except for the small white particles that flowed back and forth with the ocean’s current. My Dive Master signaled to swim forward, and we followed. Our first dive was to Blue Reef, 70 feet down. There was a lot of strange […]

The Rusty Diver

Coming back to the “arctic tundra” of New York was quite difficult, especially after spending a few days in the sun, getting my month’s worth of Vitamin D. I had the chance to go scuba diving while I was in Aruba with Red Sail Sports, for about $84. I haven’t been diving since my certification […]
