Chiang Mai, Thailand

Day No. 837 - Round The World Adventures.

Chiang Mai was my home base for travel around South East Asia, up into China and North Korea. This was my first time in nearly 2 years on the road, I finally had a place of my own. With the help from Got Passport Family, I was able to get a long term scooter rental for an amazing price, and gave me the freedom to explore outer areas of the city.

Leon, Nicaragua

Day No. 11 - Round The World Adventures.

I started my round the world trip with a month long G Adventures trip, that took us from Antigua, Guatemala down to Panama City, Panama. Our transport was taking the group for some volcano boarding and sledding. One of the our tires blew out, just as a couple of locals needed to get past us - all part of the adventure!

Aswan, Egypt

Day No. 500 - Round The World Adventures.

I needed to get away from the Aswan souk, a huge tourist trap that I was completely uninteresting. Walked off the beaten path, into the unpaved alleyways, looking for a little bit of magic.

Guatape, Colombia

Day No. 64 - Round The World Adventures.

Climbing up 740 steps to the top of El Peñol - The Rock of Guatape. Stunning view of the lake and nearby villages. I must've been the first Asian to wander through in quite some time, I being a major attraction for the locals. Even asked to take a photo with a family.

White Desert, Egypt

Day No. 496 - Round The World Adventures.

Overnight camping trip in the White Desert of Egypt. This was an extremely hard trip to organize. I wanted to do a multi night trip, at least 3 days out in the desert, but after a few days waiting and no luck finding additional travelers to make the trip, only got a night sleeping under the stars.

Dahab, Egypt

Day No. 518 - Round The World Adventures.

A strange little town next to the Red Sea, that I find difficult to define in logical travel terms. Just a simple town along the Red Sea, I spent 2 weeks scuba diving and taking a break from the weary road.

Bussing.

San Gil, Colombia

Day No. 70 - Round The World Adventures.

Bussing between cities in Colombia, there's never a dull view. The only unfortunate thing, was how uncomfortable it could get with a broken tailbone - I broke it during the first week of my trip and took 6 months to heal.

Hiked up to a nearby waterfall for a quick dip in the freezing cold water. One of my favorite hostels, top 5 in my list. Nothing beats falling asleep in a dorm room heated by a wood burning stove.
