Motorcycling in Colorado, Utah and Arizona

During the summer, Jonathan and his buddy rode their motorbikes from Toronto to Colorado, Utah and Arizona. The plan was to ride as fast they could (within legal limits) to Colorado and then explore Colorado, Utah and Arizona. I flew to Denver and met the guys in Boulder. There was no way I was going […]

Living to Die – Tana Toraja, Sulawesi, Indonesia

Lying in the hilly landscape of South Sulawesi, Tana Toraja is a place where the dead receive a send off that would make the Royal family jealous. Families spend their days preparing for funeral ceremonies, all in hopes that their children will execute a proper send off for them. Funerals take months of preparations. Motorbiking […]

Hati! Hati! – Indonesia Trip Highlights

Recently Jonathan and I came back from a three and a half week whirlwind trip across Indonesia. We spent way too much money and too many nights on the move.  We managed to cross Sulawesi completely on land and water from Makassar to Manado. Travelling over 1200km in less than two weeks took a toll […]

Motorbiking Around Coron and Busuanga – Palawan, Philippines

Traveling through Philippines was one of my favorite experiences. It is an incredible country where there is something for any traveler. I’m very saddened to see the devastation that the recent typhoon has caused to such a wonderful place. Having been in Negros months after a typhoon and an earthquake hit, I saw first hand […]

A Visit to the Penis Park – Haesindang Park, Gangwon-do, Korea

This is a story of how a beautiful young virgin almost ruined the entire fishing industry of a small Korean village. The young girl was swept away by the sea just beyond the reach of her lover’s fingertips. Little did the townspeople know that a curse was bestowed upon their tiny village.  The fishermen came back […]

Commuting on Two Wheels – Toronto vs Busan

Summer is upon us yet again and with its return I am reminded of last summer and the fun I had exploring various countries by motorbike, bicycle and by foot. Although I wish I could perpetually travel I also have other things I want to do which keep me working. Ultimate Frisbee and mountain biking in the Don […]

The Deserted Casaroro Falls – Dumaguete, Negros, Philippines

Feeling rested and extra pumped after an awesome day of riding to Twin Lakes, our team ventured to the next sight Dumaguete had to offer. This time I got a nice break as there was actually a paved road most of the 10 km ride to the Casaroro falls.   Due to the recent Typhoonquake not […]

The Journey to Twin Lakes – Dumaguete, Negros, Philippines

The day after our epic motorbiking journey in Moalboal, Cebu we headed to the island of Negros. After 2 hours on the bus, 40 minutes on the ferry, 1 hour on a jeepney we made it to Dumaguete. The city was rugged to say the least. We found a room and headed out to rent […]

Mistakes I Have Learnt From While Traveling in Asia

Mistakes happen in all the time, but they can pack a punch when you’re on the road. I made a few bad mistakes while traveling in Asia, some of them could have been prevented and others were just stupid. It is very important for me to learn from my mistakes and if I commit them again, shame on me.  Without further ado, here […]

The Failed Motorbike Journey – Jinju Lantern Festival

The story begins with an ambitious plan. It was a Friday afternoon and Natalia had to work Saturday morning. The Jinju Lantern Festival was in full swing and we didn’t want to miss it. It was only a journey of 120km from Busan and thus we thought we could head there after school and make […]
