Anyone who knows me, knows my wanderlust; I love to travel, I love to experience, I love to see other places from other perspectives. My best friend also has this wanderlust, but magnified: I would venture to Scotland, he would brave India alone. Italy and France would call my name; gallivanting off to Eastern Europe would call his. Now he’s embarking on an extended stay teaching over in Thailand. Has he already stayed in a hostel right where the protests are currently taking place? Yes. Am I going to worry about him? Of course! Am I also going to hungrily, vicariously live through his travels? Obviously.
If you, too, are feeling like getting away from this awful Canadian winter we’ve been having – even just momentarily – I highly recommend checking out his travel blog, Always take the long way home. He’s always doing interesting things, has an excellent sense of writing and grammar (important stuff to us!), and, even if he will deny it, has a good eye for photographs. Although I’m sure he would chalk it up to the beauty around him, I like to give credit where credit is due.
Happy travels, happy reading, happy living!
