At the end of the world, you’ll find angels. They hide behind boulders, they wait inside caves, and they peer out from the rock. Far outside the cities, out in the depths of a wilderness of red and blue stone, far isolated from the noise …read more
Surprise! I’ve stopped travelling. Well, that’s not completely true. I’ll be back on the road in September, starting with Vietnam, and hopefully continuing through Cambodia and Southern Thailand (unless I go live on a farm…no joke). But for the hot, Southeast Asian rainy season of …read more
I thought I’d let someone else get behind the viewfinder, this time. Recently, I spent some time in Nam Ha National Protected Area, up in Laos’ far northwestern corner, to go trekking. Though we stayed mostly in secondary, we got to visit some primary jungle …read more
It doesn’t matter what I do. My hands are still dirty. After a week on a farm in northern Thailand, it’s become difficult to let go (a multitude of soaps be damned). I woke up this morning expecting to be back in the Dome, a …read more
I used to have a plan. Actually, many plans. Big, detailed, extensively-thought-out plans. However, since landing in Thailand, equipped with a surplus of time and a vague desire to ‘travel slow,’ all those plans seem so much less pressing. Now, there just remain ideas, musings, …read more

How can I even describe what I’ve seen? Long, rolling green hills. Mountains that change from orange to red to blue. White wild flowers and shrubs that make the steppe smell like thyme. Herds of goats, horses and camels grazing. On one day, a sudden …read more
Well, sometimes plans change. Originally, I thought my trip after Korea would a be straight-forward trip on the rails, but it’s become a crazy Round-The-World trip that keeps growing by the day. There’s a hectic few months ahead of me. My friend and I are …read more
The bride was beautiful. A few weeks ago, two friends of mine were married in a traditional Korean ceremony here in Seoul. There were palanquins, traditional musicians, and white guys in hanbok. Even outside of the general elation that was going around just to see …read more
