expensive Singapore

Posted from Singapore. Tell someone you’re going to Singapore and they will immediately retort some guffawed remark about how strict their laws are or how expensive it is. Granted – I’ve heard of this too, but let’s face it – it’s an urban center. I saw two people spit whilst walking down the street – […]

temples and more temples

Posted from Siem Reap, Cambodia. Day 6-8 After switching beds early in the morning (to a much nicer bunk in a 32-bed room (with a towel and a blanket) for $2.50/night, I headed to the hostel’s café and had some scrambled eggs and toast for $1. My mission for the day half completed by 8 […]

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand. Before I left Canada I went to see a doctor as I was curious about how my RA was doing. I asked her to order me a bunch of blood work and if it was possible to have my elbow x-rayed. My left elbow has been a royal pain in […]

inoculations and future packaging

Posted from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. Needles. Bah. But the alternative isn’t so great. There are a few recommendations from Health Canada as to what vaccines one should get before venturing to SE Asia, but I’m not getting all of them.

early preparations for SE Asia

early preparations for SE Asia

Posted from Chula Vista, California, United States. I haven’t felt this nervous in years. It’s like teenage apprehension, or childish Christmas excitement. I kind of like it. But mixed in with that anticipation is a wariness and exigency to tread very carefully lest some bumble destroy my wanderlust plans. In less than two months I […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
