"Trekking with an Independent Traveller" JohanIsWeg's Profile

Vision and Mission

Visit me at http://astonishedxpression.com

I am Homo sapiens sapiens from the tribe Homini and the family Hominidae - a fact of which I am often proud, sometimes embarrased, at times aghast. I despise the platitudes of political correctness; believing in the supremacy of a Greater Being. I revel in the splendour of diversity; scoffing at the tiredness of conformity. I revolt against the corrosive agendas of a powerful minority masquerading as the ‘public interest’, ‘vox populi’ or ‘pop culture’; applauding the independent thinker who can cast away the shackles of indoctrination to experience with an uncluttered mind the sights, sounds, tastes and smells our wonderful world has to offer.

Destinations

The following is a list of the countries I have been fortunate enough to visit. They will link to country sites with either typographic, photographic or video information of that specific destination. Some will contain more detailed data that others – please bear in mind this is at all times a work in progress:

Japan
Italy
South Korea (Seoul)
New Zealand (South Island)
Vietnam
Singapore
Lesotho
South Africa
China (Beijing)
Australia
Botswana
Zambia
South-West Africa (Namibia)

Images

While VT is unparalleled in the wealth of information it provides the prospective traveller through member pages and forums, image quality is somewhat limited. To overcome this handicap, I will link both external and internal sites with the capacity to enrich the virtual traveller’s experience.

Photographs:
Cinque Terre, Italy

Video:
Botswana I
Botswana II
Victoria Falls, Zambia
Western Cape, South Africa
Great Temple of Cao Dai, Vietnam
Mekong Delta, Vietnam
