I Saw Serena. SERENA

SERENA. Guys, this was never something I never thought I could do. My Aussie friend explained to me that Australian Open tickets were priced to be accessible to regular people and I couldn’t believe it. The US doesn’t play that with big sports matches; if you’re not filthy rich or willing to sell your firstborn, you ain’t…

Be a Man-ly Beach Walk

In Sydney, beach bumming is a way of life. Probably because they have so many! Manly and the surrounding beaches didn’t disappoint.

I’m A Sh*tty Tourist

I didn’t go out and see the fireworks at the Sydney Harbor Bridge over the iconic Sydney opera house for New Year’s Eve. I can hear you all now. “Are you crazy?” “That was an opportunity of a lifetime!” “How could you miss it?” and all that jazz. Thing is, crowds get me worked up. Like, panic…
