Tokyo 2.0

For some, travel is about consistency. Returning to the same place – say, the beach – year after year. That kind of travel is about getting to know a place intimately. And I respect it. But, it’s not for me....

Settling Into Mongolia

As in Nepal, I was so affected by Mongolia that I’ve decided to serialize the story of my time here. Only this time, I felt admiration rather than disdain. I hope you’ll enjoy the posts over the coming days as much...
