After driving over 3800 miles across five states and two time zones, it feels good to be home. It had been almost a decade since last time I drove a car along the busy streets of Los Angeles, but it was just as chaotic as I remembered.
Roaming the cobblestones of Istanbul
"Inside the church there are still traces of rune inscriptions made during the Viking age by Varangians, an elite guard made up of Scandinavian immigrant warriors."
Historic locations in Gothenburg
"Hundreds of houses were quickly build, but unfortunately all of it was burned to the ground in 1611 by Danish forces."

"We turned around and went down another dirt road, past countless Joshua trees until our car was covered in dirt and we finally arrived at the Front Gate of Area 51."
The lakes of Lombardy
"The town of Como, largest settlement around Lake Como, attracts a lot of people with big wallets. But I preferred to take the funicular up the mountain to the Brunate region, where you get a much better view of the lake."
"The area contains 54 excavated bunkers along with gun emplacements, scattered around the town’s most visible landmark."

"We roamed the damp and chilly tunnels and stumbled upon a large barrel delivered by Napoleon himself."
