Countries formerly part of Mother Russia I

There is something about leaving Russia… Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it is such a big chuck of land and that even after 10 days of constant rail riding you realize that yes…I am still in the same country but I’ve zoomed through nine timezones. Or maybe it is the […]

August ’08 – Moscow

The last batch of images from Russia. My friend and I  were tossed off the Trans-Siberian and deposited into the depths of Moscow in the wee morning hours with not a clue as to how to get to any hostels. We ended up loitering by a metro station until it opened up at 4am. Russian […]

August ’08 – The Mighty Baikal

The deepest, baddest lake in the world.  The second adjective is somewhat subjective as I’m not clear as to what exactly makes a lake “bad”…although it would morph into a great name for an travel company…B3 (B-cubed) for Big Bad Baikal Adventures. A great part of Russia.  In many ways I felt like I was […]

Russian Far East and Southern Siberia

Some shots from the first section of the reverse Trans-Siberian Railway.  I don’t think most of the photos are very good as the car was slightly shaky.  The below slideshow transitions automatically, but larger photos can be viewed in the gallery.

Japanese Alps – Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route – July 2008

I got a bit ahead of myself and posted Vladivostok photos out of sync.  I had a few more stops in Japan before I ferried over to mother Russia including a climb up Fuji and another in the Alps. I’m a big geek and I like to name my trips…for example, when I did Tibet […]

Vladivostok, Russia – July 2008

Not wanting to write papers or design massing concepts in AutoCAD, I thought I’d do the next best thing – add more photos. The roughest, toughest city in Asia. I spent a few days here after hopping off the ferry from Japan.  Really neat urban fabric and lots of restoration occuring throughout the city.  It’s […]

Photos from Japan I

In keeping with my impromptu Japanese theme today, I’ve uploaded and tagged the first group of my photos from the two weeks I spend in Japan in July.   From Kyoto and several districts within Tokyo.

Cambodia Photos I

First installment of some images I took while in Cambodia earlier this year including Bokor Hill Station and Angkor Wat.   Vietnam was actually the first country visited during this trip but I haven’t tagged any of the photos yet.  For some reason I opted to tag up the Cambodian shots first.  More boring landscape […]

Photos

Posted some more photos this morning. The captions suck, so don’t expect any deep thoughts! I watched Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow last night. I had wanted to see this film for quite awhile and was thoroughly disappointed. The art deco atmosphere was a nice touch (I don’t care what anyone says, art […]

One week

Intense frustration with internet combined with utter bewilderment at the mentality, rationality and disrespect people some show to others was a sign that I needed to get away. A week was good, and now I’m back. I also caved in and purchased a mobile phone, and so far it is one of the best purchases […]

Foto

Uploaded and ready for your viewing pleasure. I’ve sized all of the files to be less than 100k (I wanted to keep the quality as high as possible) but there might be one or two photos that I missed. Let me know if there are any downloading problems.

Slow Speed

I’ve almost got all my photos from last weekend resized, optimized and embedded into my webpage. I was hoping to have them up tonight, but it would seem that my high speed ADSL connection, isn’t really as high speed as I would have hoped. I’d say it is about the same speed as dial up…except […]

“Free drinks for foreigners”

“What?” Yeah, but I’ll get to that later. Two weeks of teaching now under my belt, well three if you count the one week practicum I had way back in May. I am noticing that the preparation is becoming easier. I had to play catch up for the previous two weeks. Oral IELTS is my […]
