China ‘Tests’ My Travel Chops with 14hr Layover

  Maybe it was the 1:30 to 7:30 a.m. flight from Denpasar that preceded the mission or the persistent thought of the 12-hour flight that would follow, or the fact that I’d devoted so little attention to logistics, but my day in Shanghai has been exhausting. Explore a new city Porsh, it will be funnnn– this is what I told myself when I purposefully chose a 14-hour … Continue reading China ‘Tests’ My Travel Chops with 14hr Layover

Journey Onward: Searching For the Old Yogi Down by the River

As the Houdetsi music festival came to a close we spent a magical day relaxing by the pool at Petronikoli Traditional House, a hotel in Houdetsi, which is run by the some of the warmest people I’ve met, and while we could have stayed there for days, as the afternoon waned it became time for us to make our next move. We heard tales of … Continue reading Journey Onward: Searching For the Old Yogi Down by the River

Pai Poem; And a brief overview of some of my favorite spots

  Life in PAI full of LOVE Time warp pulling you in for a gentle hug Laid back It’s island time in the mountains Sunsets burn and glow Touch the aching parts of my soul A slow and subtle descent Into the inner workings of the mind Tap tap tapping into what’s been overlooked So faint within the veil of fog and smoke It can … Continue reading Pai Poem; And a brief overview of some of my favorite spots
