► SUBSCRIBE for daily travel videos:
► INSTAGRAM?

THE WAIT IS OVER AND I'M BEYOND EXCITED TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE LAST 2 WEEKS OF MY LIFE IN SYRIA - COUNTRY #183!

It was honestly the most inspiring and life-changing trip I've taken so far. I am so overwhelmed by the amazing people who welcomed me here -- you won't believe the stories that I'm about to share with you.

Ever since war began in Syria 2011, the media has ripped this country into pieces (not surprisingly) -- so I am going to do my best to show you the positive sides about Syrian people, culture, food and general life -- because trust me, there are A LOT of positives that are yet to be exposed to the outside world.

Can you guys sense how excited I am as I type this right now? It's unbelievable what I am feeling right now.

This first video is somewhat of an overview of everything I did in Syria. You can consider it as a 'teaser' for what's to come. I will be uploading daily videos as usual, but please note they will be delayed 14 days as I decided not to post live for safety reasons and so I could fully enjoy the trip without feeling pressure to upload.

I HOPE YOU ENJOY THESE SYRIA VIDEOS and please comment below with thoughts/comments/opinions about travel in Syria and I'll do my best to get back to you.

SYRIA | What's It Like to be a Tourist in Damascus?

My trip to Syria was one of the most eye-opening journeys I've ever made. It was tough to reconcile my awareness of the recent tragic conflict in the country, with the beauty and positivity I experienced there... But certainly, the people of Damascus MADE my visit. Thank you to everyone who welcomed me there with open arms.

I am so unbelievably sad that my 2 week trip in Syria has come to an end. This country has gone above and beyond all of my expectations in many ways, but none other than the hospitality.

Sometimes it's hard for me to communicate with you how incredible and warming these people are, because I am often not rolling my camera during the best moments. It almost doesn't make sense to me -- how can people be THIS genuine?

All I can tell you, with absolute confidence, is that Syria has the best hospitality in the world. Period.

Over the last 14 days, I have received 16 random gifts for free -- all of them were unexpected. This video takes you on a journey to hear about every single one of them!

To all my friends that I met in Syria, thank you for showing me a great time. And to everyone who watched my videos here, I hope your perspectives have changed about this country. I will be back soon!s

The World's OLDEST CITY (Damascus)

► SUBSCRIBE for daily travel videos:
► INSTAGRAM? Join me:

Syria's capital of Damascus is widely considered as the oldest continuously inhabited city on earth, with evidence of habitation dating back (at least) 11,000 years. For all you math wizards out there, that's about 10,000 B.C.!

This is largely due to the unique positioning of the city -- in the heart of the Middle East, in the center of the world and at the intersection of 3 continents. Damascus was conquered by Alexander the Great in 333 BCE, and since then, it's been taken over by dozens of empires such as Roman, Arab and Ottoman.

I have spent the first few days of my trip in Syria in this amazing city, and I'm loving it so much that I wanted to dedicate an entire video to show you what it's like to visit.

One thing that I didn't mention much in the video is about how SAFE it is in Damascus. I can't speak yet for the rest of Syria, but as far as this city goes (in this current day), I feel extremely safe just like I do in any other big city around the world.

MORE TO COME SOON!

ALEPPO, SYRIA | What's It Like to Be a Tourist in ALEPPO?

Travelling to Aleppo was one of the toughest travel experiences I've had. The city and the people who call it home have gone through a nightmare in recent years.

I'm very lucky to have been able to visit Aleppo as an independent, foreign traveller and I hope that this video can convey some of what I experienced there, from my personal perspective.

Anyone out there have a sweet tooth? If so, then I think I found the perfect country for you to visit... SYRIA!

Never in my life have I seen more sugary treats that come in all shapes, sizes and tastes. I've tried the best pastries and ice cream in my life over the past several days in Damascus! I mean, the streets and markets are lined with candy shop after candy shop after candy shop -- and it's truly amazing!

Who knew that SYRIA would be this SWEET? (see what I did there?) ;)

10 Most Dangerous Countries for Americans or Westerners.

You know some countries are more dangerous than Detroit or a Lingerie party at my cousin's ex-wife's house. Yes, it's hard to believe, I know.
In general, the world can be a dangerous place. You could be in danger no matter where your plane lands. The thing is, some countries excel in danger. And some even bump that up a notch depending on where you hail from. If you think everyone in the world loves America and its people, you’ve lived a sheltered life and I want to congratulate you on escaping from where ever you were and are now able to get on the internet to watch this video.
The fact is, some countries are dangerous for everyone, especially Americans, so much so the Dept. of State updates a report every couple weeks called Travel Advisory. This is a report that ranks the danger level a country might have for Americans that travel there. It has colors like a mood right of danger and goes from level 1 Blue that Exercise normal precautions, up to 4) Red Do not travel.
In today’s video, we're looking at the top 10 Level 4s and find out why.

10) Syria
9) Burkina Faso
8)South Sudan
7)Yemen
6)Venezuela
5)Mali
4)Iraq
3)China

THE BEST SYRIAN FOOD (Home Cooked Meal)

► SUBSCRIBE for daily travel videos:
► INSTAGRAM? Join me:

Yesterday, I was invited into a Syrian home which turned out to be THE BEST HOME COOKED MEAL that I've had in a loooong long time.

The dish they made me is called kibbeh, and I think it's now my #1 favorite dish in the Middle East (behind shawarma and manaeesh).

I spent 5 hours with this amazing family as we went to the market to get the ingredients, then cooked in the kitchen and ate together outside on a big table.

This video was spontaneous. I had no idea what would unfold when I knocked on their door. Maybe it was going to be an awkward day with little conversation? Maybe the food wouldn't be tasty? ... But turns out that it was one of the most memorable experiences in recent memory, and I hope you enjoy this special taste of Syrian food and hospitality!

Is it obvious to you yet that I am loving this country?!

10 Things NOT To Do in Lebanon!

For a nation on the border of Syria and Israel, you might expect some possibility of danger when visiting Lebanon. You'd be right. If you want to maximize your chances of having a pleasant vacation, here are some things not to do on a Lebanese holiday.

1. Don’t Be Afraid!
The people in Lebanon are perfectly friendly and the country is filled with gorgeous landmarks and fascinating history. Just relax and enjoy yourselves.

2. Make Sure to Dress Appropriately
Lebanon is a pretty conservative Arab country. Men and women are expected to avoid wearing anything more revealing than short-sleeves and shorts. Make sure your clothing is loose-fitting; women should consider covering their heads as well.

3. Don’t Just Stay in Beirut
Lebanon has some really gorgeous locations outside its most popular tourist spot. The people are generally hospitable and warm, and you can’t really say you’ve experienced true Lebanese culture until you’ve experienced something beyond Beirut.

4. Don’t Get Into a Taxi Without Agreeing on a Price
Some tourists have complained that they were “taken” by cab drivers when they couldn’t agree on a final price. Avoid this by telling the cabbie where you’re going and agreeing on a price before you get in the car.

5. Don’t Forget that ‘Traveler’s Diarrhea’ Is a Real Thing
If you’ve never traveled to a developing nation, you should be aware that your first-world immune system might take a small hit … like, right when you land. Sometimes the jolt to your bowels hits quickly but it’ll pass quickly, don’t worry.

6. Don’t Take Pics of the Military
You can look at their installations, but your best bet is to simply keep your eyes on the beautiful scenery, not on the men trying to defend it.

7. Stay Away from Dahiyeh
The world famous suburb in southern Beirut has attracted lots of attention. Don’t go see it for yourself. The residents of Dahiyeh are just suburbanites who don’t appreciate being gawked at by some leering tourist.

8. Don’t Skip the Street Food
Lebanon is known for its scrumptious street food. There are several excellent meals served on a street corner, so if you’re just sticking to the glitzy restaurants, then you’re missing out on an integral part of Lebanese culture.

9. Don’t Take Pictures of the Locals Without Permission
There’s not some old world spooky superstition attached to this one, it’s just rude. How would you feel if you were walking down the street and a group of people wearing traditional Arab garb started taking pictures of you?

10. The State Department’s Opinion
Earlier in the year, the Department of State issued a clear warning to avoid travel to Lebanon thanks to political upheaval, skirmishes and other threats. In fact, the State Department has said that it cannot guarantee its ability to transport US citizens out of the country should the situation worsen.
