I stared wide eyed at the park ranger on the beach talking to our neighbor. “Did you get all that?” he asked when he turned my way.
A tornado watch! We were aware that the hurricane season is over at the end of November, but a tornado season? Checking a Florida disaster website, I discovered that there are two tornado seasons in Florida. The summer season ends in September and the Deadly Spring Season (yes, folks, that’s what it’s called) starts in February. Where does that leave us in December?
It leaves us on a tiny scrap of land called Long Key, where one could sprint – if one was capable of…

Advice from a mountain? Yes, and pretty good advice, too.

Savor life’s peak experiences
There is beauty as far as the eye can see
Stand in the strength of Your True Nature
Follow the trails of the Wise Ones
Protect and preserve timeless beauty,
silence, solitude, serenity,
Rise above it all
Make solid decisions
Climb beyond your limitations
Leave no stone unturned
Never take life for granite
Get to the point
Patience, patience, patience
Life has its ups and downs
Let your troubles vanish into thin air
To summit all up
It’s the journey step by step
Want to peek into the life of a long-term traveler? Take a look at this post about living on the road.

Now that you know the challenges and drawbacks of living on the road, you must be thinking…blimey, why on earth do they do it?
Well, contrary to popular belief (or at the very least my last guide post) there’s a hell of a lot of good that comes from living on the road. From the most obvious pro (freedom) to the little thought-of consequences (never having to iron anything again), a long-term traveller’s life can be rewarding, enlightening, maturing, utterly satisfying and incredibly fun. Plus it’s addictive as hell!
Once you’ve spent a few years this way, the mere thought of being confined to four walls and forced to follow a 9-5 routine (not to mention having to stare at the same backyard for longer than a week) can send shivers of terror down your spine.
If you were about to hit the road but started unpacking after reading…

One of the best “I got a Versatile Blogger Award” announcements I’ve read!

How about a mug shot? After all such pictures possibly personify best what is ugly in human society.
The following is a Versatile Blogger Award response masquerading as a fictitious news article. :P
Singapore – Donna the local mongrel who was previously turned in for investigation by the authorities for the first suspected unlicensed protest to be staged by a dog in this country has fled. It is rumoured that the dog police whispered in embarrassment the statement that Donna the local mongrel, made her escape when wardens let her out in the yard to read her pee-mail. The authorities do not have an answer as to why the local mongrel held in custody should have access to pee-mail or any kind of communications with the dog network. They have refused to comment for this news report.

And I just love snow…

Yesterday was a bright sunshiny day. It was also day 5 of a 6 day work week for me, and about -17 Celsius with a brisk wind. I looked outside in the morning and said EFF THIS, or words to that effect. This is March for the love of all that’s holy, not January. It wouldn’t have been so disappointing to get all this snow if we hadn’t been seeing bare roads and snowless walkways and little tiny hints of spring. Now they’ve disappeared again.
I know I should not be saying bad words, not only because they don’t sound very nice, but also because they have no power to change the weather.
I will blame being tired of working, and maybe also the fact that muttering ‘oh…
