Another Van

Another Van

Hello Virtual Travel Buddies. As promised, I’m back to tell you where I am now and how I got here. Once again, I’m staying in a Van, but this time it’s not a vehicle, but a city. I spent nine days in Phoenix with great friends, getting my ass kicked by my yoga...
Returning

Returning

Hello Virtual Travel Buddies; oh how I’ve missed you so. I know that in my recent article The End. . . ? I sort of said goodbye. Still, there was that question mark. Was it my fear of commitment? Perhaps. More-so, it was a battle between my fear of not honoring...
The Story Continues – Drop Me Here

The Story Continues – Drop Me Here

Hey there Virtual Travel Buddies! People have requested that I write on what it’s like to return to the U.S. after nearly ten-months abroad. I’ve changed and it’s interesting seeing things as an outsider. I’ve published this on My Own...
The End . . . ?

The End . . . ?

I know what you’re thinking; Hey, where’s the next vote? We need to tell Carole where to go. (Yeh, yeh, get in line.) Well, I’m currently in an undisclosed location (ok, I’ll disclose it as I’m neither Dick Cheney nor a Hollywood starlet...
The Good, the Bad, and the Thank-yous – Australia

The Good, the Bad, and the Thank-yous – Australia

It’s time again for the final article on the current location, always entitled The Good, the Bad, and the Thank-yous. The location? Well it’s a bit murky as you chose the Big Rum Bottle which is actually in Bundaberg, Australia. There’s not a whole lot to Bundaberg...
Goodbye Van Morrison

Goodbye Van Morrison

Today is definitely my last in Rainbow Beach. I say this because I seem to be extending my visit here on a daily basis. I’ve enjoyed my time here but it’s nearly time to get Van Morrison back to Brisbane so he can perform for someone else. While I’d love to say it’s a...
Rainbow Beach

Rainbow Beach

I spend the evening in Van Morrison watching a bad movie on my tiny DVD screen. Having already watched my previous collection, which I’d picked up in Brisbane, I found a new collection at a DVD store outside of Caloundra. There wasn’t one movie in the...
My Kingdom for a Picnic Table

My Kingdom for a Picnic Table

  After returning from the races, I change back into my farm clothes and Vernon, Jeanette and I head out to do some feeding of the animals. Terri (the baby sheep) is whining loudly for her bottle and I gladly pick her up and let her snarf it down. Switch (the...
A Day at the Races

A Day at the Races

After a day of working on the farm (okay, actually sight-seeing on the farm), I hop in the shower and Jeanette and I head into town. Tonight’s the night of the staff Christmas party for the school Jeanette teaches at. You know how summertime in the northern...
Animal Farm

Animal Farm

I awake this morning and hightail it out of Noosa (okay, it’s actually 10:00am before I get going, and though I blame the wait for an available shower in the hostel, my dawdling might be a contributing factor). Today I’m headed to farm-country. Thangool to...
