Catching A Train To The Wrong City In The Middle Of Nowhere

June 30, 2013

My Savior And Angel

It’s an honest mistake to make. How many cities could be named Bokaro in India? The answer, of course, is more than one and here’s the story (and if you’re curious, within 43km there are three different cities that start with the word Bokaro). As an Indian you have to reserve train tickets far in […]

I Wish We Could Have A Conversation…

Always Smiling

While in Latin America a funny thing happened. The more I traveled, the more I enjoyed it. Peru exemplifies this, as my 2.5 months there were some of the best in my time in Latin America. Although Peru is a wonderful, amazing place, another thing was at play: language. By the time I got to […]

A Book About Achieving Freedom

freedom

What does freedom mean to you? It’s a tough question. When I was younger I think my answer would have been much more skewed to the financial aspects of life. Back when I had my first job in the corporate world, an intern at GE Appliances in Louisville, Kentucky, I thought I had it all […]

Untitled-1

As Afa, the beautiful Jack Russell I’m blessed to be living with here in Cyprus, barked and barked at this cat, I couldn’t help but think about how we humans do the same thing. I highlighted the cat in the picture, but it’s still barely visible. In real life I had a hard time finding […]

Change Your Paradigm – Different Is Beautiful

June 3, 2013

Be different and stand out in a crowd

On my first day at Inle Lake it was too late to take a boat tour of the city. Instead I rented a bike and cycled around the outskirts of the town. I had a destination in mind, but at one point I decided to cycle down an unpaved road to see where it led. […]

What Is Your Greatest Fear?

June 1, 2013

FEAR[1]

Maybe I had morbid friends, but this was a question I got a lot in high school and college. I think the first time I was asked I didn’t have an answer. It wasn’t something I thought about. But as time went on I did have an answer: ending up alone in life. Yes, being […]

A Day On Inle Lake

May 27, 2013

Leg Paddling

Inle Lake. I think that in the future my memory of Myanmar will be from the day spent on this lake. I’m sure there are other lake communities like it out there, with houses on raised stilts, markets floating on the water, and a people who literally live off the lake. The community I volunteered […]
