Welcome to Travels With Kevin! There is nothing I enjoy more than traveling the world, meeting people from everywhere, and writing about the wacky place that is our planet. Mark Twain wrote, "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow mindedness." I believe he should've added "and it's friggin' hilarious."

Come with me as I take on the daunting task of traveling the world you never knew you lived in.

By the way, I've just done a major overhaul of the site, so new articles are being posted every day. Please check back often!

  • Say Goodbye
    Big Bend, Texas
    Do you remember those Zima commercials where it was so hot and sticky, the guy not only stuck to the furniture, but the furniture actually flew across the room and stuck to him? That's Texas on a cold summer day. Imagine a hot summer day. In August, temperatures get so hot that it's only news when the thermometer drops below 100 degrees. Read more »
  • How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Motorcycle
    Saigon & Mekong Delta, Vietnam
    When I first told friends that I was going to Vietnam, reactions varied:

    "Cool! I hear it's amazing."
    "Is it safe?"
