Big Spending This Week This week were my last few days in Italy after a month-long stay in an absolutely beautiful country with awesome food.

It was something about the […] ...

Apologizes again for the delay since my last post. Last week was only the second week I’ve failed to post something on this blog since I started it a year ago (Wahoo! 1 year birthday of NYPFGuy).

Apologizes for the delay since my last post. Unfortunately, I’ve been a bit sick here in Vietnam so it’s been difficult to find the energy and time to write in between trying to get healthy and also move around in a new country. It’s all part of the joys of long-term travel! On the bright […] ...
