Trip Through the Canadian Rockies

I’ve made the trip through the Canadian Rockies so many times that I’ve grown somewhat accustomed to taking the magnificent scenery for granted. However this trip I wanted to take some pictures along the way from Vancouver to Edmonton to share with a very special girl who couldn’t make the trip this time. Mayu, I […]

Koh Lanta

Ko Lanta, an island in Krabi Province, is hands down my favorite spot in Thailand that I’ve visited yet. It’s light on tourists, crowds, street markets, feral dogs, mosquitoes, bad smells, and air conditioning (unfortunately)…and heavy on quiet beaches, jungle, lizards, good and cheap food/accommodation, and sunshine.

Phi Phi Island slum

The more I travel around Thailand, the more I am solidified in my belief that humanity is a virus. Individually, our only cares are for eating, consuming, fucking, and the propagation of our genes. As a whole, we are a filthy parasitic scum, multiplying and feeding on our host body unto death. The point of […]

Phuket to Phi Phi Island

This morning I folded up every piece of clothing I currently own, as they were draped all over my room to dry after doing laundry a few days ago, and packed up my laptop accessories while humming “On the road again, I just can’t wait to get on the road again…” My flight leaves this […]
