The Conclusion of Josh vs. Fear of Flying

One of the most popular posts I’ve ever put on this blog was my post dealing with my fear of flying.  It’s of course an odd post to have on a travel blog as you assume all chronic travelers have no serious issues with flying.  Surprisingly though, I’ve read posts by many of my favorite [...]

Music Monday: Ray Davies, Over My Head

Today’s song by Ray Davies (lead singer of The Kinks) is one of my all-time favorites with those quintessential backpacker themes of cutting loose from all the ties that have been holding you back.

Photo Essay: Kuala Lumpur

I’m not sure what I expected when I visited Kuala Lumpur, but what I got was definitely not what I expected.  The city was super-modern with little enclaves of more traditional culture.  I left KL knowing I had missed the best parts, but not sure entirely how to find those best parts.  It’s not a [...]

Photo Essay: The Streets of Chiang Mai

Cuddling With the Kitties at Tiger Kingdom

I’ve taken a lot of crap from my friends through the years for being a huge cat lover.  No matter where I go, the cats find me and I find them.  Personally, I think cats are the best.  Although I love dogs, I like that you have to have some basic instincts for dealing with [...]

New Year Update

I’m writing this post on the high speed rail from my home in Tainan City, Tainan to Taipei.  Tomorrow I’ll be flying into Chiang Mai, Thailand at the beginning of my winter break.  One of the big adjustments to teaching in Taiwan is that there’s no week off at Thanksgiving (obviously) and there’s no two [...]

Music Monday: Willie Nelson, On The Road Again

This is definitely one of the more obvious travel songs, but also one of the best.  I’m a week out from being on the road again and when I’m coming up on new travels, this is the song that always goes through my head. On the road again Goin’ places that I’ve never been Seein’ [...]
