we all have bad days, and many complain “there’s a shortage of good people.” i can assure you…the world is filled with more “good people” than “bad.” thank you Facebook for connecting me with the right people, and most of all, thanks to all the wonderful people out there:)

Dark Ages lasted between 500 - 1,000yrs: the term “Dark Ages” is applied because of the belief that the fall of Rome brought about a collapse of “Intellectual Life.” i travel the world and see the two most “primitive” emotions to humans…FEAR & ANGER…dominate the evolutionary emotion of LOVE. be prepared, because we are now heading into the new “Dark Ages” due to another collapse of “intellectual life.” there is absolutely nothing you can do about it - it’s going to happen! just make sure you’re not one of the ones getting “DUMBER!” stay healthy and continue to educate yourself and your loved ones. this means watching less tv, eating out less, and most importantly…respect yourself and cherish others. this may sound corny…but only LOVE can truly change the path we’re headed. and the crazy thing is - its absolutely free:)

keeping life simple: don’t lie - so you’ll never have to worry about covering up bullsh#t. don’t be a di@k to people - so you won’t make enemies. and my personal favorite…don’t buy stupid unnecessary materialistic bull$hit - so you won’t be broke in the future. cultivate your self-confidence…respect fellow human beings…preserve your money. and always, “stop and smell the roses.”

Thailand - food tip! yes, the Thai food there is 1,000 times better than the states - the ingredients are better! here’s a tip…if you order “spicy” here - it’s considered “mild” there. ”spicy” there is in the same league as…”fire in your bung-hole hot!!!” trust me - you want mild;) see you in Thailand!

Compass TV - Bangkok, Thailand: one of my all-time favorite dishes, Singapore style “Chicken & Rice.” healthy and tasty! chicken’s here in Thailand are half the size of American chicken’s…they’re not pumped full of growth hormone and antibiotics - so they taste better:) see you in Thailand!

Compass TV “best places to eat in Bangkok.” Mix - located in the Terminal 21 Mall on Sukhumvit 21 (Asok BTS station). Mix is currently one of “Thailand’s Best Restaurants” for 2013. Here’s my “travel tip,” Mon - Fri Mix has 8 items on their lunch special menu…from 10:30am - 6pm. yes 6pm:) I’ve tried all 8 items and they all ROCK! The picture above is one of the lunch specials…”yellow curry chicken w/vegetables and saffron rice.” All the items on the lunch special are 1/2 off - this dish is $4! Will have an episode on “Mix” very soon.

When traveling in the US your only option when you’re hungry is “crappy” fast food that’s completely unhealthy! And to top it off - it’s usually more expensive. In countries like Vietnam you have better options. See what $2 buys me at a local “truck stop.”

"60sec Travels" is a short "micro-format" to supplement our regular length (5mins or less) travel episodes on Compass TV.
On a hot humid day, there’s nothing more refreshing than stopping by a roadside stand for a couple glasses of “fresh sugar cane juice.” It’s not something you see in the US or Canada but very popular throughout Asia. If you’ve never tired fresh sugar cane - make sure you do! This drink is unlike anything you’ve ever drank.
