I've found that when you're not sure what to do with your time, travelling is a great way to make it look like you're actually going somewhere - even if you're not. Contrary to what most everyone seems to believe, it is possible to travel prolifically while spending less than you would to live in a small college town - I started to write a book about it but then I got bored and bought a ticket to somewhere else.
Here is an account of a "study abroad" trip to Europe I made many years ago - Travel Log. I understand people are reluctant to read this because there are no pictures to satisfy the average websurfer's millisecond attention span, (you probably stopped reading this a sentence ago, clicked the link and are now leaving my site disheartened) but the log really is chock full of good stuff (along with more than its fair share of unintelligible drivel). If you don't believe me, just read through these testimonials. I suggest starting with the Tunisia chapter.In Spring of 2005, I set out on another pseudo-educational voyage to the South Pacific and the land of didgeridoos, oversized beer-cans, and everyone's favorite half-duck, half-otter freak, the platypus. Along the way, I hit up lots of funny little islands and the bizarre lands of the far east. This time I got pictures! Round the World Log
