About Me

Travel makes me feel alive. There's nothing like walking new streets, hearing new languages, tasting new cuisines, and meeting new people. So far in 2014, I've visited Paris, Belize, Vancouver, Venice, Athens, and Santorini.

Samuel's Activity

QIceland: How is it driving solo in Iceland?

I'm going to Iceland by myself next month (June) for 9 days. Everyone's been saying you need a car and I was wondering how true that is. Could I take buses to different sights (e.g. a waterfall)? Or do they only take me from town to town? And if I were to rent a... See More

AAthens: Vacation

Hi David, A local would be able to tell you more about what it's like there currently, but I was in Athens for two months in the summer of 2014 and another two months in the fall of 2015 and never ran into any issues. You'll see immigrants on the subway and such,... See More

AWhat is your best travel tip?

Get an app like CityMaps2Go which lets you download offline maps and travel guides for a city. It uses your phone's GPS to tell you your location, so no data required. It's handier than a paper map, and while it's fun to wander around a city and get lost, you... See More

AWhat are the best things to collect when travelling?

​I try to look for something original or unique to the country I'm.  In Murano, Italy, I bought a glass shark that I'd watched a glassmaker hand-make in front of me.   In Greece, I bought an alabaster Corinthian column, along with a small, one-inch tall... See More

AGreece: How much money should I take on a 2 week trip to Grecce?

I'd take around 600 Euros in cash. It's probably more than you'll need, but I'd play it safe. Many places still accept credit cards, especially popular tourist destinations like Santorini. And from what I've heard from my Greek friends/coworkers,... See More

ACampbell: What's the best neighborhood in Campbell for a first time visitor?

I'd suggest looking into a place near Downtown​ Campbell, which is by far my favorite downtown of all the South Bay cities. It's got a variety of restaurants and bars, while maintaining a small town feel. There's one main strip (Campbell... See More

AAthens: Things to do in Athens for 2 days?

Visit the Areopagus​ (Mars Hill), which is right next to the Acropolis. ​It was the meeting place of an aristocratic council, and also the spot where the Apostle Paul introduced Christianity to the Athenians. On one side of the Areopagus, you get... See More

AVancouver: Day trips from Vancouver?

Squamish​ is great. It's a​ 70-90 minute drive from Vancouver along scenic Highway 99. ​They recently opened the Sea to Sky Gondola . At the top, you'll find a suspension bridge as well as various hiking trials. You get a great view... See More

AVancouver: Best place to exchange currency

I was just up in Vancouver over Memorial Day weekend. If you have a credit card that doesn't charge foreign transaction fees, like the Chase Sapphire or any of the airline/hotel cards, I recommend going with that. It's much more convenient and most places take credit... See More

QHawaii: 7 nights in Hawaii: things to do or see in or around Honolulu?

I'm traveling to Hawaii for the first time in August with my mom. We'll be there for 7 nights. What are some things we should do or see? And would you recommend staying on Oahu for the whole week or visiting another island? I wouldn't want to hop from hotel... See More
