Undiscovered Japan

Well, at the dawning of the New Year, and as 2017 takes its first tentative strides through the cold and the gloom, there is so much to look back at and reflect upon. As always, it was a year laced…

Parallels

Whilst walking on the beach this morning I spotted these two insignificant objects washed up, directly side by side. Noticing they were similar in size and shape, and just two inches apart, it got me thinking about parallels. An old…

Airports Yesterday, Supermalls Today

It’s been happening for years now: airports are becoming the 21st century’s supermalls. The New York Times points to the recession as one of the major causes. Mall visits plummeted and mass market retailers turned to the one location they…

The Pain of Auschwitz

Most of the world agrees that one of the most despicable events in human history was the holocaust. Hitler’s Nazi party systematically murdered approximately 11 million innocent people, whose shocking numbers include 6 million Jews. To deny the holocaust is in…

Reaching The Big 5-0

When I went on my maiden backpacking adventure in 1994, and first fell in love with traveling, I made a pact with myself. It was quite simple…that by the time I die, I want to have visited more countries than…

Angkor’s Children: A Photo Essay

Travel is Not Always Amazing

Darjeeling: The Faded Jewel

  Darjeeling, a former jewel in the British crown, lies across the Himalayan foothills like some dirty folded blanket, its inner creases the grimy streets or trash strewn lanes, its outer folds the ramshackle and rundown hotels that cling to…

The Hanging Tree of Gyeongju

When I first visited Korea in 2008, one of the first things I was taken to see was a tree. It doesn’t sound very interesting, does it? That is until you hear the urban legend that surrounds it. The Hanging…

The Road, The Siren

The Road, The Siren She calls to me as I sleep, entwining herself within my dreams, showing me the way and seducing me with her seductive and endless opportunities. The sounds I hear when all is silent are muted in…

A Fake Pilgrim

One of my favorite things to do in Korea is hike. No matter where you live, you’re never more than a few subway stops from excellent hiking trails. Last Wednesday I finally made my way to the trail that leads…

Impromptu Snow Hike, Daegu

It’s no secret I love hiking, and now we’re living back in Korea, where hiking is basically a national obsession, I couldn’t be in a better place. At 7a.m. this morning, while escorting Leslie to a taxi for the first…

Horsing About in San Miguel

Last week Leslie and I took time out of our busy work schedules (those in the know, know) to go on an adventure. There’s so much to do here in San Miguel, but one thing that was highly recommended was…

The River Wild

India: Street Life Part II

This is Part II of ‘India Street Life’ The one thing these pictures can’t illustrate is the overall sensory experience that comes from taking a walk on these effervescent streets. It’s a combination of all the smells; delectable food cooking…

India: Street Life Part I

The best way to see India is by walking the streets. It’s where everything happens; Trade; Socializing; Eating; Play; Rest! Walk any city street in India and the chances are high you’ll see a slice of everything. Yes, they’re filthy….

In The Shadows Of Giants

Nature has the ability to make us humble and feel small, causes us to reflect on how fragile and short our lives can be. On our recent trip to Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks in California, never was this so…

Welcome To The Jungle

Imagine the scene; You’re in Indonesia. It’s night, deep in the Sumatran jungle. There’s very little electricity, so by torch-light you span the raging river via an ancient rickety bridge, unsure of your footing and certain that, at any moment, …

On The Steep Steps Of Enlightenment?

Our main reason for coming west to Java from Bali was my long standing wish to visit Borobudur, Buddhism’s largest temple. My fascination with the world’s religious structures is in stark contrast and at surprising odds with my atheism, and…

Life Day

Oh India, What Are You Like?

Wow!! That was an exhausting 6 weeks in India. During our time in Thailand, Leslie and I spent many hours over beers at Mr. Poong’s Bar discussing our next adventure. We deliberated long and hard between Burma and India, and…

Some Things Do Last Forever

Rising strong and proud above the distant dusty plains and Jodhpur’s blue roofs below, Mehrangarh Fort is the epitome of permanence. The ruler who built the fort, Jodha of Mandore, knew how to build! For almost 600 years, enormous immovable exteriors…

His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Anybody that knows anything about me will know that I’m not a very spiritual person, or at least in the traditional sense of the word. I’m a strong willed atheist, I don’t believe in horoscopes and the zodiac, Feng Shui…

Himalaya Trek: Mcleodganj

Tibetan prayer flags flutter colorfully on a light breeze, while an eerie mist shrouds the trail as we leave behind the bustling main square of Mcleod Ganj. It’s the beginning of a two day, one night trek high into the…
