AdBlock, not to be confused with Adblock Plus, is the ad blocker I use in Google Chrome. I read a bunch of reviews before choosing which one to install, and most of the reviews that I read had AdBlock as the top option.

AdBlock is really useful because it can block normal pop up ads, as well as video ads on Youtube. Most ad blockers can block the easy pop up ads, but they struggle with the video ads on Youtube. Also, AdBlock is convenient to use because it can be downloaded as a Google Chrome extension; this makes it very easy to turn on and off, as well as being easy to install.

From most of the reviews I read, AdBlock and Adblock Plus seem to be the two best options; the only reason I chose to use Adblock is that I read a review saying that Adblock Plus accepts money from publishers to whitelist ads. While I do not know if this is true or not (and it might not be because there are many websites that recommend Adblock Plus as the top option), I decided just to go with AdBlock. For me, it is a really good option, and once I chose it, I just have not had the need to use any other ad blocker.

Ultimately, I would once again do your own research to see which option is the best for you and your own needs, but be sure to check out AdBlock as a good initial option.

Hi,
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
