More from Southeast Asia! Like I probably mentioned in my posts about Thailand and Cambodia, my trip there back in 2001 was way too brief for what I tried to do. Six countries in ten weeks is pushing it, to say the least. I ended up spending about a week in Vietnam, which is obviously

What to say about Thailand? It’s beautiful, great beaches, awesome karst topography and friendly people. Although, I hear if you understand Thai the people seem a lot less friendly. Oh well. It’s a great place to travel on a budget, that’s for sure, and incredibly easy to get around. I spent a month there in 2002;

Lima As I mentioned before in my post on Bolivia, I spent a couple months in South America back in 2006. I flew to Lima for a friend’s wedding, then flew up to Cusco to see Machu Picchu and the surrounding area. One thing to bear in mind if you’re planning on making the trip

Here’s the latest edition of my ongoing project to move all my old photos (and some new ones) into WordPress for easier management and overall grooviness. Back in early 2002, I spent two and a half months traveling in Southeast Asia. I flew from San Francisco to Singapore, then traveled up through Malaysia, Thailand, Laos,

In addition to Flagstaff, which is a great town, I recommend Jerome, Bisbee and the Arcosanti as places worth checking out in AZ. Below are some photos of

In 2006, I spent a couple months in South America attending a friend’s wedding in Peru, visiting Machu Pichu and other sites, and doing a little traveling on my own. I’d been hearing for years how great Bolivia is, so it was on mental list of places to go, kind of like Ecuador is now.

Check out these photos of the beautiful Albion River in Mendocino County, California. I took a canoe trip a couple miles up the river several years ago, and stayed in a floating house that my girlfriend at the time knew of. I love Mendocino, and floating houses, and water in general. There are some funky

If you’re at all into environmentalism, sustainability, or anything else that falls under the general umbrella of that which is “eco-groovy,” you may have heard of Real Goods. What began as an actual general store for off-grid hippies in the ’70s is now a publicly traded solar installation company. An adjunct to Real Goods is the
