Walvis Bay Flamingos

April 9 It has been nice to be a little bit lazy.  I feel super comfortable at Loubser’s Bed and Breakfast.  I have my own room, Lala the older woman running the place acts as my mother and her husband Francois gives me fatherly advice.  They are very sweet and it feels like I am a part of the family here.  I do not really want to go.  Today Lala found me a car to rent from one of her...

The Power of an Old Crush

The Power of an Old Crush

The Power of an Old Crush. I had not seen her in about 10 years.  I used to have a massive crush on her 19 years ago when I was growing up.  I have been away for nearly a decade and recently returned for a spell.  We became friends on Facebook.  Then, two days ago I received this message from her: ‘Umm…Just FYI, Your Facebook pages tell me that you might be the coolest. person. ever. 🙂 Just want I...

New York City: North American Ground

New York City: North American Ground

New York City: North American Ground. August 13.   The size of the human beings in North America is always a surprise for me every time I return to this continent. I caught the subway from JFK airport in New York City to Manhattan and the enormity of the people is disturbing.  It is an issue that is going to need to be addressed here in the future as people are not going to live long at that size.  On...

Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona to Palomino – Sandy Spots

Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona to Palomino – Sandy Spots Aug 5 Waking up in a hammock for two mornings in a row will give you sore shoulders.  It sure saves money to sleep that way though.  And saving money is necessary right now…  I ended up in this park with about $15 to my name because we were in such a hurry to catch our boat a couple of days ago that my hung over mind lost the ATM thoughts...

Rurrenabaque Hostel Take Over

Rurrenabaque Hostel Take Over

Rurrenabaque Hostel Take Over. May 14.  After I found a Rurrenabaque hostel, I had a look at this quaint little town trying to make a decision whether to head straight into the jungle in the morning, or to just hang out for a couple of days and take over the town.  It has been a long time since I tried to take over a small town to make it mine, and I kind of need that.  So, I am just...

Potosi to Cochabamba: A Connection and a Near Miss

Potosi to Cochabamba: A Connection and a Near Miss

Potosi to Cochabamba: A Connection and a Near Miss. May 5. Last night after we got back to the hostel in Potosi, I had a visitor who asked to remain anonymous because of this blog.  But it was really nice to have her over and spend some time with her.  She actually did not even want to be mentioned and told me to write about everything except her, but I can not change what I have been doing for 9...

Punta del Diablo to Montevideo: Caballo Loco Hostel

Punta del Diablo to Montevideo: Caballo Loco Hostel

Punta del Diablo to Montevideo: Caballo Loco Hostel. April 4.  I woke up in our hostel in Punta del Diablo and had my first shower in four days.  That was pretty awesome.  I did not feel dirty, but I probably was. There was only brown water at Cobo Polinio so it was not much of an option there.  When we arrived here yesterday, I was already dirty, so I just dealt with it.  I stole a towel from the hostel....

Vladivostok Russia, Russian women

Absinthe and Russian Women of Vladivostok

Absinthe and Russian Women Vladivostok, Russia e flew to Vladivostok, Russia, just north of the North Korean border in July. We may as well have flown to the end of the earth. Vladivostok, Russia is about the last place anyone would ever think to visit, let alone go to for an adventure with underlying hopes of getting laid. We arrived at the airport at 5:30 pm and a man from our pre-booked hotel was standing there with a sign. I...
