In spirit of all the weird headlines I have been reading lately in the newspaper, I had an idea to compile all of the strange, out-of-place, hilarious photos that I have taken over the years in my travels. They are here to make you laugh and/or ponder so enjoy!
Largest stein of beer I have ever seen from the Old German Beer Hall on Old World 3rd Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
In Alicante, Spain there was a full symphony orchestra that was set up in the middle of a small plaza that was tucked away in the winding streets that only played for maybe a half hour on a Saturday night.
The family that I lived with in Madrid had two children aged 13 and 12. The 12 year old asked if he could have a “Tuenti” account which is Spain’s version of Facebook. He was then asked to draft his own contract including the rules that he would have to follow. Parenting done right.
In Dubai there was an entire channel devoted to camel racing, like how we have a NASCAR channel in the States.
In Lisbon, Portugal I saw how they fixed the decorative cobblestone roads. Find a rock that fits and pound it in. Even the homeless man was amused.
Dubai, UAE. Globalization at its finest and something all too familiar.
New York, New York. Street artists are the best. Even if they pull you by your hair.
Madrid, Spain. At the Real Madrid Stadium I could get an Oscar Mayer hot dog and a picture with Cristiano Ronaldo!
Chicago, Illinois. Where you can drink out of a pineapple (not a tropical island) and of course eat deep-dish pizza.
Las Vegas, Nevada. All the M&Ms you could imagine, clubs filled with too many “cool” people and gondola rides. No need to go anywhere else!
Speaking of old rocks, here are some Roman ruins in Italica, Spain. The Romans were really into their arenas.
Went to see my hero Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert’s show in Milwaukee. We then snuck in backstage to meet them. Best. Day. Ever.
At the top of the Pao de Azucar in Rio de Janeiro we met some monkeys at lunch and some creative coconut friends.
The favelas of Rio de Janeiro.
Well, that’s the list so far. Hopefully I will be able to add more in the future. Until then, Just Go!
