Core Principles of No-BS Travel

One-Week Notice isn’t your granddad’s travel blog. I don’t believe in inspirational stories, the tourist trail, or rainbows-and-unicorns optimism.

No Silver Linings

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, and sometimes a shitty day is just a shitty day. If you’re always looking for an inspirational life lesson around every corner, you’re missing the point. Sometimes the best we can do is get a good story out of the deal.

Off the Beaten Path

The best restaurants aren’t on TripAdvisor, the most secluded beaches aren’t on Lonely Planet, and the most authentic markets don’t speak English. Think of me as your surrogate trailblazer. It’s the only way I know how.

Real Talk

Do you ever make mistakes, think mean thoughts or do something morally or legally gray? I do, and I’m going to tell you about them—without the spin of a self-help guru with a suitcase.


There’s a lot of knowledge to gain with a boots-on-the-ground approach to travel, and I’d be selfish not to share that with you. From kickass street food to needle-free beaches, I’ve got you covered.

Where To Now?

Well, that’s up to you. Go to the blog for my most recent posts, browse my photo galleries, get in touch with me, or just explore categories and countries if you’re totally lost.

Despite being a cynical bastard, I really hope you get value out of One-Week Notice.

See you on the road.
