Details of Life on the Road: Street eats, cheap sleeps, budget travel experiences

The Annapurna Diaries: Day 14

  “Finished. I have so many things to say. 183Km hiked/trekked, according to my mini map. But, considering the little 2km hike in Manang, the getting ‘lost’ in both Upper Pissang and Muktinath, and taking some of the more scenic secondary off-road routes, the total is probably more like 190km or 200km. Iodine pills used: 50. Liters of water drank: approx. 50. According to the map, we hiked...

1000 Days Of Travel

I think a little post about this milestone is fitting. 1000 days! Well folks, I’ve reached a big landmark in my traveling career. Today (more or less) marks the 1000th day of long-term, mostly international travel that I’ve been lucky to experience. It’s quite unbelievable for me really. How did I turn into a traveler?

Shortly thereafter I found myself in her bed, telling myself, “this is it,” as she slowly sank her...

The Annapurna Diaries: Day 13

“Today was a good day, mostly. I can’t stop arguing with Mark, though. Jomsom to Kokhethanti, 19km I do believe. We couldn’t quite make it to Lete, our intended destination. Off to a late start, around 8:00am I think. Mark was planning on taking the bus and Logan was considering it, although I thought it would be too expensive for him, and it was. For Mark, too. Honestly, I liked Logan, but I half...

The Annapurna Diaries: Day 12

  “Dry, rock-layered river beds have long been awaiting the monsoon. Muktinath to Jomson today. Lower Mustang. I didn’t really want to hike with the youngins but did so anyway. Not so much to my surprise, Jane was joining us. Shoot me now. I walked away from her, not for any reason of dislike but just because it was easier. We didn’t have much to talk about, obviously, and it was probably...
