I’ve dragged my bags around a lot of cities and never run over anyone’s toes with them but in Paris somehow I managed to run over a dozen people’s toes in a single afternoon.
To my surprise,the food was good, but slightly overcooked, and the Guinness was divine in taste but too expensive to have more than one.
So much of my London from 1998 is just a blur that it’s not fair to tell any of the stories, but suffice to say, you’ve heard of these people and you know what they look like and I can tell you, they know how to party.
I left Morocco again, flew intoMadrid before heading to Frankfurt, Germany then to Dublin. From Dublin, I flew to Canada where I hitched across the country with about $2, found work in the USA, flew back to Dublin, then went to Belgium and from there back to Morocco.
Through the week, I curate the best travel stories I find at Vagobond Travel Media and then each Friday, I bring you the highlights here at the Vagobond Travel Museum. To let me know about a great story either contact me on G+, Email me, or simply use the Twitter or G+ hashtag #travelmuseum
The web is full of great travel blogs, travel stories, travel photos and travel videos
I’ve met lots of people who are away from home. Among the backpacker crowd there is always that cute declaration that they’re not tourists, but travelers.
Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little course, and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice. Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
For those who want to keep track, it went something like this so far Manisa, Istanbul, Manisa, Antalya, Izmir, Ephesus, Selcuk, Kusadasi, Izmir, Istanbul, Sofia, Pernik, Belgrade, Nis, Skopje, Sofia, Istanbul, Casablanca, Fes, Sefrou, Fes, Rome, Istanbul, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Sokcho, Samcheok, Andong, Busan, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Batam, Jakarta, Bogor, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Istanbul. There were a few other places in between…but …oh well, enjoy because I’m sure there will be more even though right now I don’t feel like going anywhere. :)
Rome wasn’t built in a day, but you can certainly see some of it in 24 hours if you don’t have more time. A cheap flight from Fes, Morocco with no frills, uncomfortable carrier Ryan Air got me to Rome’s Ciampino Airport from Fes Sais Airport with an ultra cheap fair of about $60 including the taxes. Not bad for a transcontinental flight.
Travel around the world and you are sure to want to write about it. One thing you will discover is that finding the time to write about your travels isn’t always easy. Far too often you have to put things off until you have some down time and if you are doing things right, you won’t have much of that!
I realize that for those of you who have been following this rather longwinded and sometimes confounding narrative that appears to be my life, this bit is coming a little out of sequence. I just ask that you bear with my temporary loss of continuity for a moment before the regularly scheduled program resumes.
I have no options but to get across Canada and down the west coast with the $4
Frankfurt International Airport is like a space port. My first impressions of Frankfurt are that it is incredible. Maybe the most modern city I’ve ever been in. Silent, fast trains, beautiful architecture, clean…so incredibly fucking clean.
Once he begins the fools quest, the first person the fool encounters is the Magician. The magician not only shows him tricks but also explains the nature of the universe and thus the fool learns the power of manifestation.
