Santa Fe.

Nikki and Jeff organized a weekend trip away to Santa Fe, New Mexico. They did everything and more to make sure I had a great American experience, which meant a taste of the different cultures found within the massive US of A.

Slow the Fork Down

The same week I flew into Denver was spent enjoying one of the many perks of busy America; there’s always something going on. In this case it was the Slow Foods festival. Nikki, Jeff and I opted to volunteer so that we could enjoy the festival while saving our pennies, and because our shift began... Continue Reading →

After the train I got a ride on the ferry to the island of Koh Phangan where I met up with Antonio, my first couch surfing experience and a friend to be missed. Antonio has embraced the life of “Fruitarianism”, a... Continue Reading →

Yoga Trekking

The sweat is pouring off of me, it must be like 30 degrees already – at 5am might I add – and I’m running with a 12 kilogram pack on thinking, ‘Why? Why must I leave these things till the last minute?’ I’m in New Jalpaiguri, a town about an hour bus ride from the... Continue Reading →
