Say What?? Travel Photo: The Smell of Foot Prints

Ah nature. It’s just wonderful to relax that quick pace and stop to smell…the footprints? “Less Foot Prints, More Aroma.” I don’t even know what to say to that. I mean, is that to say that you should walk less and smell worse? Or is it perhaps and indication that your feet smell? What I […]

Say What?? Travel Photo: Wholesome Toys

China is a nice, wholesome, family oriented society, right? I’d venture to say that they have the world’s largest number of spoiled brats, considering the exceptional number of sibling-less children. What I definitely picked up on during my collective two months in the “middle kingdom” was that sex is a taboo subject. Case in point, the […]

Say What?? Travel Photo: Meal Urn?

“Point your meal urn.” It’s quite a straightforward sentence that quite frankly makes absolutely no sense in English, especially when you take in to consideration that it’s the name of a restaurant! I have to wonder what the intention here is. I mean…urn? Ye olde dictiornary says that “urn” is a noun and is “a vessel […]

Say What?? Travel Photo: The End of Laos

At the southern tip of Laos lie the truly blissful Si Phan Don (literally 4,000 islands), named for the thousands of little sand bars that appear once mighty Mekong River recedes in the dry season. When I say southern tip, I mean that Cambodia is quite literally a stone’s throw away! During my days on […]
