Doin' as the Germans

"Si fueris Romae, Romano vivito more; si fueris alibi, vivito sicut ibi" This saying, attributed to St Ambrose has become a bit of a traveller's credo - "When in Rome, do as the Romans". That is to say, that when visiting a country, any travelle...

Old City Renewed

I have, from time to time, been accused of being a little over zealous. Some say i exaggerate or over embellish the importance, beauty or relevance of a place. At the end of the day, it usually just comes down to opinion. However, there are times whe...

Gettin' My Bell Rung

Churches. Pretty much every hamlet, town or city has one. In Latin America, there's seems to be one on every corner. And for whatever default reason, guide books and tour have to herald them as the highlight of any city. But here's the thing, after a...

Fire 'n Ice 'n Bikes

I've spent a good chunk of my life living around the Ring of Fire: the seismically active, volcano laden area around the Pacific ocean. I'm no stranger to volcanoes. I've climbed Mt Fuji in Japan, I've skied Ruapehu in New Zealand and driven past Mt...

Relaxing Guest Stay in Busan South Korea

When fall approaches, the streets will transform from a greenish grass field into a yellowish red flower garden. It seems like foliage is metaphor with multi-colored wild flowers in summer. At this time, autumn breeze will start to whistle gently ove...

This little piggy ain't all that

If there's one thing Ecuador has plenty of it's hikes. Darn near the whole country is full of opportunities to get up close and commune with nature. The only issue, as a working class slave, is finding enough time to get to the places and enjoy the g...

They Can't All Be Winners

I guess the easiest way to 'rank' how i felt about the places i have seen is to split them into 5 basic categories: loved, liked, disliked, hated and whatever. I am finding myself lumping more and more places into the whatever pile. That is to say, p...

Not Ruined Yet

I need to get out of Quito from time to time. Sadly, my schedule doesn't allow me to go on big trips, thus it would seem i'm condemned to be content with extended day-trips. Unfortunately, my options for such jaunts are quickly dwindling. I'm not eve...
