Street Walking and Fire Walking

Street Walking and Fire Walking

Today is volunteering day! If you’re a regular Virtual Travel Buddy, you know that Drop Me Anywhere is also a philanthropic endeavor. Wherever I travel to, I find an organization or project with which to volunteer a day, or part of a day, and then I tell you...
Rock the Boat

Rock the Boat

After returning to town, soaked with water, yet thankfully not with blood, Mare and I drop our rented motorbikes at my hotel – hers on the street in front, and mine parked just inside the restaurant, which they don’t seem to mind at all. I phone the guy I...
Uneasy Rider

Uneasy Rider

I’d planned to have an easy day today; sleeping in, working, maybe some shopping. But Mare, who I met yesterday while viewing dead bodies (you know, just a normal way to meet people), and I made contact via Facebook and she invited me with her to see some temples....
I See Dead People

I See Dead People

It’s another beautiful Bali morning and I’m up early with big plans. Dewa, my guide from the other day, has agreed to do a private tour for me on the back of his motorbike. We walk out to the bike, he hands me a helmet (both the law and a good idea here),...
Monkey Business

Monkey Business

Gina leaves today and I go back to traveling solo and, after one last breakfast together, we say goodbye and I grab my luggage and head off to the Kampung Ubud Hotel and Spa, just a few doors down, to drop my bags while I go to explore more of Ubud. First things...
Lost in the Jungle

Lost in the Jungle

Today is a day to explore Ubud without a plan. Well, a plan to maybe explore the palace grounds and a museum if, maybe, we get around to it. After a great breakfast accompanied by unlimited coffee (which I’ve really missed in some locations – not the coffee part, but...
Rice Paddies and Coffee Poo

Rice Paddies and Coffee Poo

We’re up early today as we’ve a big day planned. After a great, somewhat traditional American breakfast, substituting watermelon juice for orange juice (a new yummy favorite), Gina, Barbara (a new friend Gina made here in Bali while working), myself, our guide,...
Ubud or Bust

Ubud or Bust

I wake up, once again, in my luxury hotel, drink my tasty coffee out on the balcony (not really as it’s Nescafe instant; but then again, how good is hotel room coffee even when it’s in a drip maker?), and head over to breakfast. Pancakes, waffles, sausage, crispy...
Hello Bali

Hello Bali

After landing in Bali, making it through the visa, immigration and customs process and out the door, I finally find a working ATM. There’s one on one side of the airport entrance for MasterCard and one on the other for Visa. I head on over to Visa and withdraw...
Leaving Las Vegas

Leaving Las Vegas

It’s a bright, shining morning and I’m sad to say I must depart Kuala Lumpur for other bright, shining places. Kuala Lumpur is like Las Vegas, only instead of casinos, they have shopping malls with a thousand stores, basketball courts, running tracks,...

Vote – Pinky and the Cable Car

This vote is now closed. Please click on Up in the Air to find out where we’re traveling to next! If you’ve been following the Drop Me Anywhere adventures in Kuala Lumpur on Facebook or Instagram or maybe even Twitter you’ll know that, last week, I...
The Good, The Bad and The Thank you’s – India

The Good, The Bad and The Thank you’s – India

It’s time for the final article on India (actually, well-past time thanks to a crashed computer which will cause my ever dwindling funds to dwindle further). This is where I tell you what was good and what was was not-so-good, as well as thanking those who...
