There's never any time!!
30.04.2012 - 19.06.2012
I'm so excited.... I'm so excited.. I'm so... Scared.
No but really between doing a final stint in india at a ridiculous yoga ashram, trekking Annapurna, and wandering China in awe and wonderment I've completely lost sight of the blog.
All of these events are completely worth discussing so I will get to them at annoying length in the next few days. But first, a general insight into where we're at. Currently we're in hong kong coming from shanghai (commercialism in a communist society at its best). Unfortunately, our intentions to head to Burma in lust of a country untouched by tourism may have been thrown off course by a mild emergency state that was declared in the last week. Now, usually one to scoff at state bound travel warnings, I find in my old age less enticed by such thrills and more by dog walking and cooking dinner. While the latter may be somewhat of an exaggeration, myanmar hasn't exactly been know for stability in recent history, or ever, for that matter.
Conveniently, we discovered there is to be an electronic festival in Taiwan next weekend that will most likely fill that void of thrills, lacking all the danger. Lucky us since camp Bisco isn't exactly an option at the moment and what better to replace it with than some good old fashioned Asian psytrance rage fun. Last call for anyone who wants to join Earthfest 2012. Couple the music with some highly enthusiastic descriptions of the island and you can easily persuade two slightly (or very, depending on the day or country) tired travellers not to head back to the third world just yet.
Less than two months left. Cant wait to having friends, family, price tags, and turkey sandwiches back in my life.
I shall certainly write a more logical, less rambley update on more important events soon.
