To write or not to write

I wish I could just beam the information to people, because I hate writing.

This is one of the reason I started taking photography. One picture speaks a thousand words.

So if you find yourself lost in one of the paragraph (or maybe more) can't understand what I'm trying to say, don't tell me that I never warned you!

2006 itinerary

I guess when you spend most of your time travelling (or busy planning it), time really does fly.
Before I knew it, it's 2006 and here I am, getting ready to plan my '06 itinerary.

I'm thinking about getting a round the world ticket this year and travelling clockwise starting from Japan. I'm moving back to the states anyway, so I might as well do that before I start working. I don't expect to be able to travel as much as I did here when I get back to the states.

I'm thinking to go back to China-then work my way west to Kathmandu - Nepal - Bhutan (never been) - Turkey - Egypt - Marocco (never been) - then on to europe - the states and just burn my ticket from US back to Japan (Since I'm not coming back/staying in States).

We'll see what happen....

Feb 2006 - Taiwan (Taipei & Hualien)
March 2006 - Indonesia (Jakarta, Bandung, Bali)
April 2006 - China (Shanghai, Beijing, Xian)
April 2006 - Australia (Sydney)
April 2006 - New Zealand (South Island)

2007 Itinerary

Since I just got back to the states, I did not do much international travel this year.

Sept - Oct 2007 - Japan (work related)
Nov 2007 - Singapore, Indonesia
Dec 2007 - Scotland

Note to self: I'd rather fly coach on Singapore Airlines than business class on any US carrier!

2008 Itinerary

July - Sept 2008 - Indonesia, Singapore
December 2008 - Mexico

    No need to write, your photographs are great, and the banana seller photo is outstanding! It makes me wish I carried a better camera when traveling, just on the off chance that I could get such a picture.
