Oh hey guys!
So as you’ve probably figured out; I’m finally back in Alaska. I landed back home on the 1st from Chile.
And to get to the point, here are the posts I released this month:
- 10 reasons to visit the Ross Sea See why you should visit this little-touristed slice of Antarctica,
- The Tambomachay-Cusco Walk Peru on a budget? Here is a cheap day trip option.
- Campbell Island New Zealand’s Subantarctic Paradise.
- Fann Mountains Trekking Guide Trekking and general information for Tajikistan’s stunning Fann Mountains.
- How to get an ESTA Planning a visit to the USA?
- Cruising El Nido with Apetours Who to book with in El Nido + video!
- How I’ve made $414.68 as a travel blogger The follow up to my post in 2015 How I’ve made $0.21¢ as a travel blogger.
And if you care to read about what happened in April….
The highlight reel:
It’s springtime in Alaska
March through June is my favorite time of year!
For the first time in 3 years at Alyeska. Don’t worry, I still got it.
and glaciering at Spencer and Knik Glaciers.
Probably the last storm for the season that I’ll get to see!
I’m finally making the jump! El Nido was my first project.
I’ve begun the process of getting Italian citizenship
I’ve known for years that I’ve been eligible for Italian citizenship jure sanguinis. I’ve been saying I was gonna do it for years and am finally getting around to it. Although I did debate on whether to list this on the highlight reel or the shitlist, as it’s a pain in the ass!
Plus now I have to wait for a date to magically open up for me to go to the consulate and apply… however navigating that website is an all-out nightmare and it doesn’t look like there is any availability to schedule an appointment for the next decade (I’m not kidding).
I even emailed them and asked if could call and arrange an appointment and they told me to check back on the website at 3 pm each day to see if anyone’s canceled. Really? I live roughly 4,000 miles from the nearest consulate… I need a little time to plan.
I figure it’s probably backed up because of our beloved el presidente and now everyone seems to want dual citizenship somewhere else. That’s not why I’m applying, I mostly want it for travel-related purposes and to have the option of working in EU if I ever choose so.
Don’t worry, I’ve always disliked Donald Trump. I couldn’t stand him before it was trendy and hipster to hate him. I couldn’t stand to listen to him talk when I was a teenager on the ‘Apprentice’ when it first started on tv.
And if at this point you’re making assumptions about what I identify with politically, you’re probably wrong. I’m non-partisan in case you were curious because I think all the parties are full of equally slimy, shitty, poor excuses for human beings- otherwise known as politicians.
And that’s a wrap!
Thanks for listening to me bitch about things annoying me for yet another month. I’ll be back in May with more Antarctica posts, some posts helping you plan more for Tajikistan travel this summer, and some travel gadget/gear, heck maybe even travel toiletries recommendations, and hopefully some more video*… I got lots of ideas!
*I just want you to know that video is probably the absolute hardest media to produce! I now understand why so many vloggers only release videos 1x/week…
