- A Postcard from MilanA short trip with long-standing truths, you could say. Italian ice cream and tomatoes are the best in the world. Seeing a new place in the company of someone who knows the city, and beer in the sunshine are two Posted by BillLehane in Silly Billy | Mar 1, 2011
- Small Scenes That Give Greater PerspectiveUpon reviewing my pictures for the year so far, I discovered that I had several photos that I really liked, but remained unpublished due to their peculiar uniqueness. In other words, I have some photos I’d like to share, but Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Feb 26, 2011
- Infatuated With Isla Magdalena: Beware of the StingraysMagdalena Bay is located on the southwest coast of the rugged and beautiful Baja Peninsula.

- Nepal II
Traveling is a funny thing. I've been silent mostly beacuse there's only so much I can write about the people and the city.
I did get off my lazy bum and onto a bus to the gorgeous town of Pokhara, Posted by Ole blue in Nepal 101 | Feb 12, 2011
- Tying The KnotThe captain sugarcoated the weather report as sweetly as he could: “Well, It’s going to be shitty, and the next day is going to be worse.” The captain has a way with words all his own. The report called for Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Feb 10, 2011
- Baja VisionsSunrise.

- The Ramblin' Man ProjectI've been working nights for the last 10 days. While I'm functioning, I don't really have the focus necessary to put coherent sentances together. Case in point, It took me 3 minutes to write what I've written so far. My Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Jan 22, 2011

- Friday Night in Kathmandu
The only constellation I can point out is O’Ryan because of his belt. This makes it my favorite constellation..
I can see O’Ryan every night here because of the early city wide power cuts in the streets.. It’s after midnight, Posted by Ole blue in Nepal 101 | Jan 16, 2011
- San Javier and Swimming With SharksI had finally gotten to bed at about 3 am. I had given two tarot readings after getting of work at 1 am. I woke up to the mirror rattling in the door, then the bow thruster of the ship Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Jan 12, 2011
- Kathmandu Day 2January 6th 2011
It was either the yak or the chicken but all I can say is that I’m not qualified to leave my guesthouse today. Why do I eat chicken? I see them on the sides of Posted by Ole blue in Nepal 101 | Jan 8, 2011
- Midnight In MexicoIt’s midnight in Mexico. I’m sitting watch on the bridge (pilothouse) of the Seabird, quietly watching the few navigation lights in the distance, and listening to the coffeehouse music on the XM. It’s a quiet time; the captain and I Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Jan 5, 2011
- Half-Way: A ReviewLast year I decided to post several things that I want to accomplish before 2010 ends.
Medyo late ko na ginawa ang list kaya medyo gahol na din (or baka nag dadahilan lang ako)
Para sa mga hindi familiar sa list. Posted by iamian in HOURGLASS | Dec 31, 2010
- Time Management and the Modern ExplorerThe boat slowed, and I knew we had spotted some sort of sea creatures, but I didn’t yet know what it was. I was in my head (bathroom), getting my day started. I knew that whatever it was, was probably Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Dec 26, 2010
- Savoring This First Taste Of BajaThe hours of my day fly by in a frenzied rush of work and play. It’s very difficult to make time to write so far, and I’m not optimistic about my future chances. The reason why I’m struggling so much Posted by Rhombus in The Dusty Vagabond | Dec 15, 2010

- Crawfish, Ghosts, and FootballThere is a very real possibility that I'm allergic to oysters. But, like my coconut allergy, enjoying the food far outweighs the consequences. We've had a ridiculous amount of seafood on this trip, but the meal that stands Posted by slugtrek in Road Trip 2010 | Dec 12, 2010
- Baton Rouge to New Orleans the Long WayOn Thursday morning we woke up to a frosty surprise coating our car. It was a chilly 29F when we left our room and set out on the Great River Road. Even the locals seem surprised by the Posted by slugtrek in Road Trip 2010 | Dec 10, 2010
- A Winter in Baja Begins

- You Are Now Entering the Wonderful World of ManateesYesterday began with a stop in Siesta Key, where the ridiculously white sand squeaks beneath your feet. The sand is apparently 99% pure quartz and I've never felt anything quite like it. This was also our first glimpse Posted by slugtrek in Road Trip 2010 | Dec 6, 2010
- Goodbye Party Central. Hello Amish Country.We never actually went clubbing in Miami. After wandering around the Art Deco District at night we quickly realized it really wasn't for us. Instead we went to a giant art installation that had a DJ, a couple Posted by slugtrek in Road Trip 2010 | Dec 4, 2010
- Miami: High Rise Hotels and Stilt Houses
We arrived in Miami yesterday and headed straight to the Art Deco district (we wanted to go to the hotel first, but we made a wrong turn and ended up in the main tourist district instead). It Posted by slugtrek in Road Trip 2010 | Dec 3, 2010
