From Greece to L.A.ve

‘If you had only one wish, what would it be?’ I’d wish the plane wouldn’t crash. Of course that is not my answer. Marc, the guy I met ten minutes ago, doesn’t need to know that I’m afraid of airplanes, and that I am having a panic attack as we speak. He needs to hear … Continued

Laos: Taking a wrong turn.

The road wound for miles in front of us. I could see the shadow of the bike and its two riders stretching out on the road next to us. Something came into view ahead, at first just a blurry shape, slowly coming into solid form. A lonely cow ambled towards us, and we adeptly maneuvered … Continued
