Cyprus – Nature’s Playground

Green And Beautiful Cyprus (46)

How is it possible that in one place cacti (desert environment), citrus (Mediterranean environment), and bananas (tropical environment) can grow? I don’t know. But the results are stunning. I apologize for the sheer number of images, but I couldn’t help myself. Cyprus is outrageously beautiful and this was the only way to tell the story. […]

October 27, 2013

The Beach

Karpaz. It’s the peninsula circled in blue that juts out from Cyprus’s northeast that gives the island its unique shape. But anyone who has visited this undeveloped haven of beauty knows it’s more than just a peninsula. The first thing you notice when you get to Karpaz is its greenery. Cyprus is relatively green, but […]

Finding Inspiration In An 80-Year-Old Entrepreneur

October 22, 2013

Anibal thumb

Anibal. If you say that name in North Cyprus everyone knows who you are talking about. He’s a living legend. It wasn’t always the case though. Anibal started by cycling around town and selling sandwiches from his bike in the 1950s. From there he started a restaurant as most restaurateurs do, working hard, creating a […]

October 20, 2013


As May turned into June this year, protests swept the streets of Istanbul and the rest of Turkey. The catalyst, the straw that broke the camel’s back in reality, was the plan to demolish a park to build an Ottoman-style barracks that protesters claimed would have included a shopping mall. Protesters also were out to […]

How To Really Help People

October 15, 2013


It’s a question I get asked a lot: Dear Adam, I recently had experience X or realization Y and I want to do more to help those less fortunate than me. It’s really hard to get started though. There is so much need out there, so many problems and so many people who need help. […]

Afa And I

Nature, I fell in love with her early on in my trip. Back in Denmark as I prepared for The Happy Nomad Tour I’d go for nightly walks in the nearby forest. It wasn’t as exotic as it may sound. There was a path Nature speaks so loudly to me. You see so much life […]

Little Mind And Big Mind

October 8, 2013


I recently listened to an interview with acclaimed writer Maya Angelou. In one statement she summarized something I’ve struggled to put into words for years. She rents a hotel room in her hometown that she uses as her office as described here. When asked what she keeps in the room, here is her response: Usually […]

How To Make A Halloumi Sandwich

October 6, 2013

Put The Tomatoes And Greens Inside

Halloumi. It’s Cyprus’s gift to the world. The only cheese that can be grilled and the only cheese I’ve ever had that squeaks as you chew it. As I got to Cyprus, I fell in love with these cheese all over again. I had no choice, actually. It’s everywhere. Still, I really do like it […]

Who Makes The Best Food In The World?

October 1, 2013

Fresh Salad - Eggs, Tomatoes, Potatoes, Greens, Cucumber

Grandma always makes the best food in the world. Period. It doesn’t matter where you are, which country it is, which type of food, etc. Grandma does it best. With that in mind, imagine the excitement when I discovered that my friend and his brother head to their grandma’s place every day for lunch. A daily […]

My First Cypriot BBQ

September 29, 2013

Cypriot Barbecue

My first Sunday in Cyprus was special. Although I’m here to work and hopefully find a way to earn a sustainable income, and work my butt off on some projects I have in mind, you can’t help but say yes when a friend asks if you want to head to a barbecue at his friend’s place next […]

A Love Letter To Halloumi Cheese

September 24, 2013

Halloumi On The Grill

Oh halloumi, you dazzled me with your salty brine goodness during my three months in Cyprus. Your high melting point sets you apart from your cheese brethren, being the only cheese you can grill. Likewise, no acid is needed in your preparation because, in the words of Bruno mars, you are amazing just the way […]

First Impressions – I <3 Cyprus

September 22, 2013

A Beautiful Flower

Cyprus. It’s a place I visited in 2006 on the way from Qatar to Scotland for some training. My roommate from college was from here and I wanted to see him and his homeland. Though I was only here for a few days, I knew there was something special about this place. I could taste […]
