Whats left of a once fantastic Lion Gate entrance to the Sigiriya Rock Palace.
I'm currently wrapping up my time here in Sri Lanka, a place I never planned to visit on this trip, but threw in last minute as I worked my way west towards India. I had about 3 weeks of time to fill from when I split with one set of friends in Vietnam, and before meeting another in India. Originally I was going to head straight to India, but instead I ended up cruising up the Mekong to Cambodia for 5 days, then stopped over in Singapore for a couple, and then noticed flights to Sri Lanka and on to India didn't cost much more than straight to India. On a whim I went for it and booked my flight from Singapore to Sri Lanka.

A regular site in Amsterdam, rows and rows of bikes
Amsterdam is a city of cyclists, with twice as many bicycles as cars on the road. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Dutch person who doesn’t own a bicycle. With an abundance of bike-only lanes and special traffic lights, cycling through Amsterdam is safe and easy for visitors of all sorts. Whether you’re traveling solo, sight-seeing with a group, or have a toddler in tow, you’ll love the leisurely experience of exploring this colorful city by bicycle.

The flight attendant rapping the safety announcements
Every traveler hates the beginning of a flight; no electronic devices, on board entertainment systems are turned off, and you have to listen to the same boring speech every single time. I'm glad there are people out there like this guy who gets so bored of that speech himself that he decides to mix it up and turns it into a rap.

A girl enjoying the corner beach on Great Keppel Island
The east coast of Australia has a well worn travel path carved into it, running from Cairns to Melbourne in either direction. Along the way there are a set of stops which virtually everyone picks, and all the tour agencies promote. These include from south to north: The Great Ocean Road, Melbourne, Sydney, Byron Bay, Gold Coast / Surfers Paradise, Brisbane, Fraser Island, Agnes Water / 1770, Airlie Beach & The Whitsundays, Townsville / Magnetic Island, and finally Cairns. Most people don't stray very far off this path, but some of these places were not even that developed until fairly recently, so why do people not explore new places more often? Recently I took a road trip from the Gold Coast up to a place called Yeppoon on the Capricorn Coast, where we set off for a sail around the Great Barrier Reef and Keppel Islands.

Jet Lag got you missing out on the sights?
At this moment it's 5:33 AM Pacific Standard Time on Thursday. My flight left Brisbane at 11:10 pm Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, connecting in Taipei for 10 hours, then dropping me at LAX 36 hours later. I hardly slept on either leg of my flight, and went sightseeing in Taipei during my layover. When I arrived home I spent time with friends and family until nearly 2AM. Logic says 3.5 hours of sleep should not be enough, so why am I awake? I didn't follow my own method for avoiding jet lag...

Driving a rental boat through the canals of the Gold Coast
The Gold Coast is famous for being one of the premier tourist destinations in Australia. There are so many things to do on the Gold Coast, it's impossible to do everything in one visit. This means you have to choose wisely. For those of you who don't know anything about the Gold Coast, it's set on a VERY long stretch of beach on one side, and an intricate system of canals on the other. It actually has more canals than Venice. I've been living here for the past 4 months, and my time is ending in a week, so I'm scrambling to do everything I've not managed to do yet. This afternoon we decided to rent a boat and cruise the Gold Coast Canals, and it turned out to be one of my favorite things to do here.
