The Rundown – Anthony Bourdain, Breakfast and the Death of the MP3

It’s another Friday and I’ve got a full weekend planned. Feel free to follow along on Instagram.

The Rundown

There’s nothing more inspiring than being tenacious, working hard and making your own luck. That’s basically the story of Lydia Tenaglia, who helped shape Anthony Bourdain into a TV host. This Vice profile on Tenaglia should be required reading for anyone trying to bootstrap their dreams.

Have you ever wondered what it would cost you to travel in Namibia? Well, Lauren from Never Ending Footsteps has you covered with her great piece on the cost of her time in the southwest African country.

Yes, I will try an espresso tonic, please.
