Backpacker Stereotypes Part III: The Itinerary Junkie

Backpacker Stereotypes. As transient visitors, and consequently checking in and out of hostels constantly, any backpacker can tell you the chances to observe people are endless. Hostels truly are one of the best environments for people watching, and with a trenchant eye, it makes for an amusing sociology experiment. I have encountered many types of […]

Backpacker Stereotypes Part II- Let Me Guess, Your Boyfriend/Girlfriend Cheated On You?!

You see this lad or lassie, at first, sitting alone. They are easily approachable, as well as eager to approach. I love these cats. They are some of the most entertaining, and consequently some of the biggest lushes. However, they are capricious creatures with more mood swings than Van Gogh, due to the recent tragedy […]

Travelers’ Limbo

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars […]

A New Breed

So there exists a new breed. Things have changed since the day of Jack Kerouac, although we all owe him for the sense of adventure he planted in the minds of generations of Americans.

Gila Gili Islands

The Gili Islands suck you in.  The biggest of the the three, Trawangan, has the power to make the  line between reality and dreams hazy, while at the same time making you slowly forget that an outside world even exists. What is at first glance just another stretch of white sand, edged with turqouise water and sprinkled with souvenir shops […]
