CHINA

Culture Shock! The Chinese Driver, 2015, China, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: Culture Shock! And The Chinese Driver

April and I are on our way to the Longji rice terraces of northern Guanxi province in China. It’s the rainy season, hot and humid since arrival, but so far we’ve been spared any downpours on our first week in this country. That hasn’t been the case in the mountains. The potholed, winding road, barely a lane and a half wide curls between rocky cliffs and a raging river belowREAD MORE

HONG KONG

Travel Rollercoaster: Journey from Guatemala to Hong Kong, 2015, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: TRAVEL ROLLERCOASTER – A JOURNEY FROM GUATEMALA TO HONG KONG

The good news is we made it to Hong Kong in one piece. It was not nearly a perfect journey and the effects of the 3 days of travel plus a 12 time zone difference are still weighing heavy…READ MORE

Culture Shock! And The Sorry Complex, 2015, Hong Kong, China www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: CULTURE SHOCK! AND THE SORRY COMPLEX – HONG KONG

Welcome to the new series that basically named itself! We’ve just landed in a new continent that is about to challenge us in completely new ways. Some will undoubtedly be intriguing and funny little things we’ll have to adjust to.  …READ MORE

LAOS

Freedom Rider, 2015, Loas, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: FREEDOM RIDER -LAOS

It started like any other day, waking up in a strange world full of opportunity and discovery with no plans or expectations. What it became, a 2 day expedition; just me, my backpack and a shiny new rented Honda I recently learned to ride, into places seemingly unseen by any foreigner or wanderer…READ MORE

TAIWAN

Culture Shock! And the Sorry Complex, 2015, Hong Kong, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: CULTURE SHOCK! AND THE PORCELAIN THRONE 

For those of you who have not yet experienced the shear adventure brought to you by ‘the squat toilet,’ allow me to paint the picture for you. I entered a restroom stall outside a temple in Lukang, Taiwan and in that moment, much to my horror, I was slapped with a very dark reality. Western style toilets were a thing of the pastREAD MORE

THAILAND

Deep Water Tornadoes, 2015, Southern Thialand, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: DEEP WATER TORNADOES – THAILAND

I haven’t had the chance to do any climbing while here in tiny Ton Sai, a town, no, village, no… a spit of white sand crammed between enormous limestone peaks, jutting out of the earth and ocean. A few bungalows and restaurants have sprung back up since this place was decimated in the 2004 tsunami… READ MORE

Things To Do in Koh Tao, Thailand, 2015, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: THINGS TO DO IN KOHTAO, ABOVE THE WATER

For decades, Koh Tao has been analogous with world class diving at bargain prices. Travelers have been coming to this slice of scuba heaven for the abundant sea life, but there is so much more to Turtle Island above the reefs and beyond the salty sweet coastline…READ MORE

VIETNAM

Rice Terrace Wanderings, Thailand, 2015, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: RICE TERRACE WANDERINGS – VIETNAM

As if being set in a terrace laced village high in the mountains of Northern Vietnam wasn’t far removed enough already, I venture farther. Beyond the tracks of any road. Beyond the comfortable reach for many of the other daring travellers with whom I made the overnight train trip to the…READ MORE

  • So here's the problem with this international lifestyle: 
A. Other countries/don't celebrate the holidays you are used to and sometimes they entirely pass you by.  B. They celebrate other things you never heard of, which is great, but you wish had gone to grocery store before the country shuts down for the week.  C. Sometimes they do celebrate things like Mothers Day, but on a completely different date.  Then there is the whole issue of when to celebrate what 😶 So it was just Mother's Day back in Canada, when I normally dispatch my extra mom love ❤️ But now my mom lives in Spain, and I'm in Thailand and they all celebrate Mothers Day on different dates... so I guess I'll have to go for all three since I'm already late on the first celebration. #sorrymom #happymothersday #iloveyou  P.s. Yes, April and I really live and laugh that much #silly #gopro #beach #mothersday #burma #myanmar #ngwesaung #paradise #sand
  • Summer 2017: a family reunion first, three generations heading to Europe. I'm thrilled to reconnect with my family (we live on 3 different continents).
