Planning a Walkabout

Recent changes have made me seriously consider attempting what I have dreamed of for years. Traveling the world. Now I am making it happen!

In the next few months I am going to be selling my condo and 99% of the contents so that I can finance this crazy dream of mine. My book and cookbook collection and most of the kitchen tools/pots and pans included.

I am also getting in touch with anyone I know who can be of assistance, like...

  • Folks who live in the places I'm thinking of visiting, for couch surfing and guidance.
  • Friends who know folks who live in these places, for couch surfing and guidance.
  • And travel and ex pat professionals/genius' who can give me advice for this crazy venture of mine.
No plans are set in stone yet. If I am within traveling distance to your home turf, and you'd like some company, let me know! Right now I am thinking of driving to:
  • Boise ID (Friends here)
  • Bend OR (Friends and cute baby boy here)
  • Portland OR (Real Nutter of a friend here)
  • Vancouver BC (Hopefully)
  • San Francisco CA (Have family here)
  • Santa Cruz CA (Great friends who are very much like family)
  • Los Angeles CA (Friends here as well.)
Then fly out to:
  • Perth (Where I have some wonderful friends who have offered up some accommodations.)
  • Kuala Lumpur 
  • Goa
  • Tanzania (Where I have some more wonderful friends who have offered up some accommodations.)
  • Istanbul
  • Palermo (Where I have some friends I hope will be able to accommodate me.)
  • Paris
  • Dublin
  • New York City
Please contact me if you know anyone/anything that will help me along my way. And/or you're interested in some of my "stuff".
