A warning and some info…

 

FIRST A WARNING:

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN HAVE IS AN OPEN MIND AND A REALISTIC WORLD VIEW – YOU MIGHT HAVE TO BREAK THE LAW TO SURVIVE OR EVEN JUST TO GET HOME. BE PREPARED AND REMEMBER YOU ARE NOT AT HOME AND THE SAME RULES DO NOT APPLY. ALSO DO NOT BE SHY ABOUT USING LANGUAGES,AVAILABLE HELP, OR OTHER RESOURCES. ALIVE AND EMBARRASED BEATS DEAD EVERY TIME.

I find that I have done a lot of traveling in rather weird or extreme formats…sometimes voluntarily sometimes involuntarily. I have attended opera galas, concerts, and conventions for business and pleasure, and I have been in car trunks, jail cells, and mental hospitals.

It occurred to me today, that there might be some other souls out there, that might benefit from hearing about these things because, gods forbid, they may want or need to try them for themselves. 

So I see this as a blog for the extreme experience oriented traveler. If you always go to the same place, the same hotels, or travel solely by cruise ship (A cruise can be an experience but not if it’s all you do) then this website is not for you. 

This page is for the traveler that wanders beyond the “safe” cities, the tourist enclaves and the ports. It includes adventures in jail, in mental hospitals, in slums, and in dangerous places AS WELL as how to find adventure in big cities, small towns, and weird ports both here in the US and abroad. 

It is also for the person who finds themselves traveling against their will.

There is a general tips page – which includes emergency advice, urban and rural survival tips, and a page with suggestions on how you travel light and move quickly. 

In this blog I will be including pages on language, body language, sex, dating, bribery, party skills, business travel, religious travel, upper class travel, cruise ship travel, traveling homeless and on your thumb, involuntary travel, problems for the female traveler, where I am, what to eat and drink, places to see, and just in general how to have a good time. 

If you are easily offended or if you have set routines, move on.
