CANADA | Wednesday, 8 Oct 2008 | Views [351] | Comments [2]

I managed to wander my way around this world and come back in one, unbroken piece, but i can't seem to figure out how to post photos within my entries on this website so, for now, i've switched to a new journal that appears to be geared towards the simpler-... Read more >


Parting the Red Sea

EGYPT | Saturday, 1 Mar 2008 | Views [1021] | Comments [1]

If you’ll recall the last entry, I worried about my lack of knowledge when it came to Egypt – and everything related to it. Well, I think for once my worrying was justified. Along comes my familiar friend Ignorance. Ignorant assumption ... Read more >

From Roosters to Camels

THAILAND | Thursday, 24 Jan 2008 | Views [1211]

It became apparent that if I didn’t leave Lanta now, I may never end up leaving at all.   So I tore myself away from the comforts of my home and made my way up to ko phangan.   I got an email from my mom that said, “I hope you like it there, ... Read more >

THAILAND | Sunday, 6 Jan 2008 | Views [702] | Comments [1]

The traveling life has shifted into days based more on living rather than moving - which is why it's been difficult to update this journal!  I left Malaysia and headed back up to Ko Lanta.  I booked my room for one month and unpacked my bags, a glorious ... Read more >

Malaysia - The Land of men and monkeys

MALAYSIA | Tuesday, 27 Nov 2007 | Views [764] | Comments [1]

I was right in assuming that the blissful days of beaches and sunsets would become a fading memory once I arrived in Malaysia.   I have learned something very important about traveling.   It is an entirely subjective experience which cannot even ... Read more >

Ko Lanta

THAILAND | Monday, 19 Nov 2007 | Views [697] | Comments [4]

The strangest thing happened on the boat from Railay to Ko Lanta – I’m pretty sure I entered a black hole and fell into a time warp where the world stopped moving and all that has existed for 2 weeks are beautiful sunsets and lazy beach days. ... Read more >

The Evolution of the Monkey

THAILAND | Monday, 5 Nov 2007 | Views [2819] | Comments [4]

There are few times in life when i am able to be 100% in the moment. I always get so fed up during a yoga or meditation class when they tell you to concentrate on your breathing and think of nothing - there's far too many things to think about to do ... Read more >

Blissful Ignorance

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 24 Oct 2007 | Views [598]

When I was planning this trip I had the standard traveling worries – getting my passport or money stolen, getting lost in a foreign country, or getting sick from eating sketchy food … little did I know that would make me sick would have nothing to do ... Read more >

Fallen down the rabbit hole...

LAOS | Saturday, 20 Oct 2007 | Views [770] | Comments [4]

There are certain comforts that one has to do without while traveling and it's just something you have to accept or else it could become a definite source of rage. Yet I have found a fine balance of comforts and discomforts that mirror each other quite ... Read more >

A glass of wine and a steaming bowl of Snake Soup

LAOS | Wednesday, 17 Oct 2007 | Views [728] | Comments [6]

I’m sitting here in an internet café in Luang Prabang beside a young monk in his beautiful saffron robe. Life is strange to say the least. Luang Prabang is a city filled with French colonial architecture set amongst vibrant markets where it is not ... Read more >

THAILAND | Saturday, 6 Oct 2007 | Views [506] | Comments [3]

I'm sure a lot of you have heard me say before "a city is a city is a city". It's been my experience that they are all the same no matter where you go in the world, big buildings, lots of traffic, starbucks, and english signs everywhere. ... Read more >
