How has your multicultural heritage influenced the way you travel and eat?

In the Spring of 2014 I had the pleasure of traveling through Serbia and Bosnia & Herzegovina for Davidsbeenhere.com. We filmed beautiful scenery, cities, monuments, and met some amazing people along the way. In addition to my regular production, I wanted to showcase some highlights from my trip using my new XShot. It’s the perfect companion for whoever wants to capture their travel memories without awkward self-shots or asking others to take pictures of you. I hope you enjoy the video! Stay tuned for future episodes and articles of my trip through the Balkans. To get your own XShot click HERE.

For my forty-eight hours in Jacksonville I had the pleasure of staying at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront. The hotel is located walking distance from downtown and features panoramic views of the river. As the largest heated rooftop pool in downtown Jacksonville, you can take in the stunning views of the city. The also have a well appointed fitness center and numerous other amenities. Staying at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront was yet another highlight to an amazing visit to Jacksonville.


But only one of the buildings continues to be the emblem of democracy, and that is the Parthenon. The Parthenon was an impressive structure for its time – a temple dedicated to Athena made entirely of Pentelic marble and adorned with intricate statues, friezes, and inscriptions about the Greek gods and Athenian victories over the Persians. Architects Iktinos and Kallikrates are credited as the masterminds behind its simple, yet elegant design. The columns of the Parthenon look straight, but are actually thicker at the base to give the illusion of symmetry. This type of optical illusion where objects converge at a single point is called linear perspective. This mathematically based system was developed by the ancient Greeks and has since been applied in many forms of art to create the illusion of depth. A notable work using these principles is the 15th century painting by Leonardo da Vinci, The Last Supper.

Wild Food Dinners

Shopping: There are several souvenir shops in the Anuradhapura Old Town where postcards and chotchkies are sold. The New Town has clothing stores, supermarkets, and a handful of bookshops.


Throughout the centuries, residents of Ahmedabad have invented complex dances. The accompanying music was originally acoustic (using drums and singing), but people today dance to amplified modern sound systems or blend singing and drums with a live band. On the tenth day of the festival, Dashera (known as Vijayadashami in southern India), people celebrate by dancing and buying new vehicles! A crunchy, salty fried food, fafda, and jalebi, a fried sweet, are consumed on the tenth day.
