5 Cities I’ve Always Wanted to Visit


I figured today I’d depart from the usual talks about sex and dating. It dawned on me that Mardi Gras is quickly approaching, it was definitely something I planned on experiencing. Last month, I searched feverishly on hotel apps and Airbnb for a place to stay, I even convinced a few friends to tag along and cut the overall cost. But in the middle of January it was clear that I wasn’t going to be taking the trek to the debaucherous mecca of the United States, the southern cousin of Las Vegas. This letdown made me think about the exact 5 cities that I want to visit in 2015:

New Orleans, still
You hear stories about the infamous Bourbon Street, bounce music which reminds me of my native Chicago house music, the food like shrimp po’ boys, and the ability to drink in public. When you hear stories about New Orleans it almost seems like this city is the most American city of all.

Not only do I hear about the glamour and beautiful weather that’s in LA- it’s the city that I can visit and potentially comeback with more money than I came with. For some reason most of the people that really want to shoot with me are either in LA, Chicago, or Miami. I just want to go to LA, rent a hippy looking trailer, smoke, shoot, and make a few memories worth sharing.

Puerto Rico
One of my best friends is Black and Puerto Rican, all he talks about is the beauty and realness of this place. He speaks about the country-like Puerto Rico that many fail to see when they visit. I’ve wanted to go down there, try the fresh and simple food, and just clear my mind.

Toronto is ranked very high on this short list. Partly because I’ve never left the country. Secondly, because I hear the women are beautiful and very nice here. Thirdly, because I have had wet dreams about poutine so much, which is basically a dish consisting of french fries, gravy and cheese curd. I could see myself having a blast in this city not too far from the states.

Portland, Utah, or a weird place
I just want to go to a weird place that others aren’t swarming to and just discover a gem for myself that I can decide to share with friends. Sometimes it’s good to go to the less traveled path to see what you may find.

What’s the best place you’ve ever visited? What place do you recommend I visit? What’s a place that you’ve always wanted to go to?

  1. You’ve got to venture outside of the country. Mexico and Canada are bordering countries and should be visited by all Americans. The Caribbean would be the next quick and simple place to try traveling to. I love to spend my vacations relaxing and exploring without a schedule.

    As far as planning a trip to a big event, like Mardi Gras, you have to start 1 year to 6 months in advance. You’ll enjoy N’awlins…do leave French Quarters. 😉
    I would love to travel to Alaska, Curacao, Japan, South Pacific, Brazil, South Africa as well as Ivory Coast area, and Dubai.

  2. Ive been to all of the places listed; Toronto is amazing in the summer… and LA is beautiful and at the same time kind of phony, and Puerto Rico is Paradise on earth. But yeah you def should venture out of the country because then.. you become an “american”.. i can’t wait for my trip to South Africa next month

  3. Absolutely love TO, but there is something about Montreal (specially in the summer) that you can’t get anywhere and yeah the poutine is def better in Montreal… So i’d suggest you add it to your Canadian trip :D!

    In Europe: Paris and London are mandatory lol! The south of France also is a must! I loved Corsica and Naples in Italy.
    In Africa: Only been to Benin and it still is the best trip of my life! But i’m actually going to Gabon later this year, i can’t wait!

    I’d love to go to Brazil, Haiti, Jamaica, Senegal, Ivory Coast, South Africa, and my parents country DR Congo. Welll the list could go on, but these are top places!
