While at home…

During my travels in 2012 I collected 14 hours of video. This week I finally got around to making it into a single collection, and put it online:

I also got around to writing detailed blogs for cyclists on crazyguyonabike.com of my routes in The Annapurna (Nepal), The Manali РLeh Highway (India), The Nubra Valley (India) and East Africa. When I was researching these routes it was very difficult to find information and advice online, so I hope they can help people who are thinking about those routes in the future.

And finally, I uploaded 50 recordings I made during the trip to The Freesound Project. My favourites are:

A buddhist ceremony of killing ‘ego’ in a monastery in the Himalayas
A train idling at night in India surrounded by frogs
A funeral song in Laos
Erte Ale volcano in Ethiopia
A pool full of bubbling sulphur in Ethiopia
Durbar Square market at night, Kathmandu

 

I’m a blogger

I don’t like bloggers.

Anyway, since I’m going to be traveling for a while this year; Facebook’s blackout in China and mass-email aside, it’s the best way to ‘keep in touch’ with friends and family.

I’ll start with a couple of rambling entries of my skewed impressions of Korea having lived here for 2 years. Following that, I’ll update intermittently while stumbling around the world.
