  1. Suit & Ball Cap

    Suit & Ball Cap

    Share this: Certain styles and clothing combos can only be pulled-off by unique individuals and specific age groups. No one has really made wearing one sequined glove work since Michael Jackson, an Angry Bird t-shirt looks a bit suspect on anyone over 12, few people rock a bandana as well as Johnny Depp and light-blue hair only flies on women...

  2. Saying Goodbye to Thailand

    Saying Goodbye to Thailand

    Share this: Moving isn’t something I often do. Be it moving countries, cities or even homes within a city. The last decade-plus I’ve been residing in an apartment that was very close to work, great value for money and pretty comfy. The building, Jo Joke Mansion, is located on a typical suburban Thai soi (side-street), far from the modernity of...

  3. Transition

    Transition

    Share this: I’ve been in Nepal now for two-and-a-half weeks and the time has really flown by. Considering I haven’t headed off on any treks, big expeditions, or had any firm plans, it’s staggering how fast time can go by when you’re reading, writing, thinking, relaxing, biking and taking the days as they unfold. In some respects this could be...

    Mobile Phones may be the World’s Great Equalizer

    Share this: While more than two billion people live on less than $2US/day and many are likely to not escape extreme poverty during their lifetime, a form of technology most in the developed world enjoy is not only becoming accessible to the poor, but stands to become one of history’s greatest equalizers. Little more than a decade ago a mobile...

  5. 15 Things to Think About

    15 Things to Think About

    Share this: My wife, knowing what I’m doing in Nepal and over the next few months in other locales, sent me a link to a story about things to keep in mind to be happier. I don’t think she views me as unhappy, nor am I, rather they are some pretty good points and suggestions to stop wasting time, worrying...

    Scott in Nepal: Day 4, May 12

    Share this: Happy Mother’s Day Mom! One of the toughest parts of living overseas is not being able to see parents as much as I’d like. We’re quite lucky considering the distance and manage to see one another at least once a year but it would still be nice to see Mom today and give her a hug. Approaching 21:00...

    Scott in Nepal: Day 3, May 11

    Share this: A family of four from Denmark that’s stayed at Mads and Clare’s homestay, Shivapuri Retreat before, arrived yesterday evening for a two-night stay. We had a delicious Nepali meal and nice evening chatting. Everyone hit bed by about 10pm and I’m looking forward to getting on an earlier evening, early morning regime over the next few weeks, which...

    Scott in Nepal: Days 1-2, May 9-10, 2013

    Share this: The transition of changing careers can be a challenge. It’s been a bit over two months since I sold my shares in Smiling Albino, the highly specialized travel company I moved to Thailand to help create way back in 1999 and I’ve been really enjoying the time off. It’s a shocking how fast time flies, but I’ve been...

  9. The End of the Guidebook?

    The End of the Guidebook?

    Share this: It’s hard to imagine life without the Internet. What’s more intriguing is how quickly much of the world has not only come to depend on it, but in many ways become addicted to constant access and take it for granted. Having almost every fact, detail, speck of information and constant contact with friends at one’s fingertips is a...

  10. Village Brewery

    Village Brewery

    Share this: I love beer. More specifically I love hand-crafted ones, with robust flavor, color, heart and soul. While I enjoy a Corona or standard lager once in a while, it’s generally ales, stouts, interesting seasonal brews and the odd white wheat that really get me excited and thirsty. For more than a decade-and-a-half my favorite beer has been Traditional...
