Journey to Africa

These days, I get asked a lot where I will go next. Looking back on the past three years, this is understandable.

Nomadic Lab Crack Rat
I mean, it’s worse than a lab rat on a steady diet of methamphetamins.

I pray that the supreme being of your choice will #neverstop to inshalla me this way.

What an awesome question. And it all started in Africa, heart of humanity, cradle of life.

I know weird, considering that I am a 70s kid from Austria. But if my parents didn’t drag me to hippie concerts in Vienna to hear songs about riding bicycle to said Africa, past Bedouins, girls with undies on their heads (his 70s un-pc words), and bloodsuckers feasting on you in river bed camp sites, I may have never left.

All of which explains this blissed out video in Baja California. Here I fly downhill past a gorgeously undulating, yet completely anonymous landscape that would be in a national park anywhere else.

And I sing. My favorite travel song – Journey to Africa, by Arik Brauer. An ode to nomadism, the age old urge to keep moving that 10k years of pulling weeds haven’t erased, yet.

When is the last time you belted out a song like nobody was listening?

Hello World – Hallo Welt – Ola Mundo

Baja California - Bahia de Concepcion

Welcome to the new virtual home for my real world travel adventures. Thanks for the drive by 🙂

I will entertain and boggle your mind. I will share perils and pleasures of travel, sometimes, combined with ludicrous opportunities to growthfully edify yours truly.

Speaking of learning: I still don’t know why  Cambodia’s Centipede population sent one of their bestest little vile critters to bite me in the ass while I was minding my own business in the Valley of the Thousand Lingam (that’s right, 1000 penises). But I do know exactly why that Grizzly showed up while I was marking my territory in Yellowstone National Park.

Hopefully, the process of telling these insanities to the world will mitigate my own assumptions and I will finally be able to do a backflip in a Capoeira game.

Via Ergo Sum!
