International Travel – Chapter 1
Around the World
The plan ...
Taking a different path for a while... One backpack.
Head south to the warmth. Onwards through southeast Asia to arrive in Europe for the summer.
The reality ...
The route was correct. The timing was a bit off.
The west coast. Family. Friends.
Finding out the real rules of an "Around the World" ticket. Good times ahead.
If it's 2 AM it must be Hawaii.
Falling into the life of a traveller. Sweet. Great friends. So much for the timetable.
Family. Meeting friends from another country. Amazing tramping. Awesome place. Visa extension.
Big, bustling, and it grows on you. More great friends. Good hikes. Good times. Long bus rides. Wonderful variety. Great diving.
Meeting friends again. Small world. Unique place.
Interesting foreign influence. Lovely contrasts.
Wonderful wandering. Amazing history. Full of great things. Good experience.
Great place. Not so great getting violently ill.
A true display of extremes. A great place to recover.
A welcome change to colder weather. A different kind of travel. Amazing places.
Catching up with friends. Great hikes. Great exploring. The Eiger. A special place.
Is there anything better than the Champs–Elysées decorated for Christmas?
More great parts of this country.
Carols at Kings on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day with a friend. Nice.
Almost the end.
