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 […]

August Adventures at Killbear Provincial Park – Ontario, Canada

July 2013 wasn’t a warm one for Southern Ontario and Lake Huron/Georgian Bay surrounding Killbear Provincial Park did not warm up at all. Aside from the cold water we had great weather and we found plenty of things to do while keeping dry. We had about 25 people booked for a group campsite which is much better […]

Mountain biking in Toronto – Don Valley Video

  I spent the better part of the past 12 years riding on my mountain bike in the Don Valley. I was  unhappy with the Don Valley mountain biking videos I’ve seen on YouTube so I set out to make my own. The Don Valley trails are built by other riding aficionados and more recently […]

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.

The Longest Two Days of My Life – Bolivian Rainforest to Lima, Peru

This story goes back a few years to before a new highway replaced the “death road” from La Paz to Coroico. I was traveling with my mum through Peru and Bolivia and our trip was winding down in Bolivia. We had a few days left and just had to make it to the Bolivian rainforest to […]

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 […]
