Bill's Big Trip "Imagine there's no countries, it isn't hard to do, nothing to kill or die for. Imagine all the people living life in peace. Imagine all the people sharing all the world. I hope someday you'll join us and the world will live as one." John Lennon

To tell l the truth, I've avoided writing this for about a week. Mostly because I know when I write this my trip will be over. I made it home to San Diego, unpacked my bags, settled in, saw friends and am now in Pittsburgh visiting family. I really can't ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 27 Dec 2014 | Views [231]

It's been good three weeks traveling around New Zealand. I'm currently in Dunedin about five hours by bus south of Christchurch. I'll finish the loop around the south island tomorrow. Traveling by bus was a great way to see the country and it only cost ... Read more >

Just got here. A busy 24 hours.i landed in NZ at 11:45 at night and thought I'd save some cash by staying at a hotel/campground close to the Christchurch airport. A five minute cab ride cost $25., I worked a deal for $15. Anyhow ended up in the middle ... Read more >


Australia 2

NEW ZEALAND | Sunday, 7 Dec 2014 | Views [243]

I had a good bus trip up the east coast of Australia. Met some nice people and saw some amazing sites. 1800 miles was kinda fast for three weeks, I could have used at least two more weeks. I think I'll use it as an excuse to return. Words and pictures ... Read more >

I enjoyed my time in Southeast Asia, but it was time to move on. My flight from Thailand to Australia routed me through China. I ended up traveling about 13 hours in the air on China Southern Airlines, it was ok at best. I think Australia is a 19 hour ... Read more >

Myanmar/Burma

MYANMAR | Saturday, 8 Nov 2014 | Views [387]

I'm going to refer to the counrry as Burma, not Myanmar. It's been a good but somewhat tiring 27 days in Burma. The visa is good for 28 days, thought I'd give myself a one day cushion. It's been tough getting internet access, sometimes spotty, other ... Read more >

About lipowcan8

A quick recap. I visited 19 countries in 212 days, traveled 46,000 miles by air,15,000 miles by land and spent about $25,000. My feet got beat up a few times and I twisted my ankle a couple of times.  No plane, train, car, bus, tuk tuk or taxi mishaps, not even a fender bender. I wasn't threatened or harassed and amazingly enough I didn't lose anything. It's hard to believe seven months have passed. As I said in my first entry.....a wonderful way to celebrate 60 years of living. It sure was!
