Returning Home

As many of you have asked me to share my experience and feelings in returning to the U.S. after a year traveling out of the country, here’s a piece which lets you in on a little of what’s going on in my life and head. They say that after a traumatic experience – the death […]

Montreal – La Tour Belvedere Hotel – I Could Live Here (Review)

Living room

Hello Virtual Travel Buddies! Yes, it’s been a while since we spoke. Much has been happening as a result of this project and I’ll share the good, the bad, and the oh-so-ugly in the next article. In the meantime, I’d like to introduce you to a new section on Drop Me Anywhere – Hotel and […]

Random Acts of Kindness

People keep asking me what it’s like to be back home. Well, first, I’m not exactly back home. As I’ve mentioned, I’m currently staying at a friend’s place in Vancouver, Canada. Then again, I don’t think those of you who’ve asked actually mean home, as in my house. You seem to be asking, “What’s it […]

We Must Travel in the Direction of our Fear

Travel Quotes

Hello my Virtual Travel Buddies. This is not the article I’d planned on publishing today. I’d planned to tell you about my latest adventures in Vancouver, Canada, and maybe give you an idea of a non-traditional activity to enjoy while visiting a destination. That will have to wait. Instead, I’d like to talk about the […]

Another Van

Trolley

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 instructor (zowie, […]

Returning

Airplanes

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 our contract, and my […]

The End . . . ?

Map

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 who pretends to hide from the press yet leaks the info. through […]

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

Horse Racing

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 except for the rum distillery, so you got […]

Goodbye Van Morrison

Colors of sand

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 beautiful, […]

Rainbow Beach

Horses

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 bunch which I’d wanted to see, and it’s amazing […]
