Where am I?

Created this blog to document my travels, experiences & thoughts thru Central & South America but hell plan to blog my travels to where ever. Goofy harmless Free Spirit hoping to spend most of my time with locals & enjoy the world! So hang on as I travel, drink cervezas, raise a little hell, maybe piss off a few people & hopefully not give Canadians a bad reputation! Of course don't do these things on purpose but while having a good time well "Shit Happens"!

Went to India on a Whim to maybe find some Spiritual Enlightenment but instead found a different kind of Enlightement & love with some awesome Indians! Which was more meaningful to me in the big picture!!

I posted my pictures to Facebook cuz most of my friends are from overseas and also want to keep in touch but other than a few friends well don’t communicate with friends on Facebook in Vansterdam !!! Also use Facebook cuz it’s easier to post pics on there then on my travel blog! So bear with me and put up with Facebook even if u dislike it as realize a lot of people use Facebook to post some real shit on there! Which is why I actually dislike that media!

Yeah so OK I know u won’t probably use Face book as u dislike it or don’t have a computer! But if u don't use a computer then how the hell are u reading this? Or maybe u must be using some shit like an friggin' iPhone so then u can follow my travel adventures on my travel blog!

I do a lot of traveling cuz I’ve been blessed with enuf money, balls to do it and the health to put up with the stress and poor living conditions to travel to some poor country and places that I stay! Also the food and water I put in my body aren't usually that good!! But shit if the places I traveled to was like back home! Hell I wouldn’t go there cuz it’s the adventures and experiences that I feed off when on the Road!! Cuz yeah I love going to out of the way hard to get to places if possible! That’s not to say don’t love going to run of the mill places too! But shit man dislike touristy places even tho some will say I’m a tourist too even if I consider myself a traveler!! Guess I go to out of the way places cuz they’re cheaper! Cuz like I usually travel for about 3 months as figure if I have to spend good $$ on a flight why the hell not stay a while and see more than one place!!! Hell in 2008/2009 I traveled for 9 months from Mexico, Central America, South America to Buenas Aires Argentina. But shit after 4 months an Amigo in Venezuela got me a cheap return ticket back home as needed a vacation from my travels! Lol So took a vacation from my trip/vacation! So then cut my next trip in 2010 to just 6 months to go from Spain, Morroco, Mauritania, Senegal, Mali and was heading to the heart of Africa down to S. Africa but shit got sick with a bad skin rash & itch!!! So instead headed to Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Nagorno-Karabakh, Iraq, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Germany and Holland! Then in Oct 2011 to Jan 2012 went for 3 months to Eastern Europe and the former Soviet countries to Instanbul, to Ethiopia to Abu Dhabi and Bahrain! Now on the spur of the moment bought a ticket for India for 3 months but stayed less cuz forgot to do any research as friggin’ Monsoon season was about to start along with School vacation in all of India which made it f*ckin’ near impossible to get a train, bus or any other cheap mode of transportation!!! Along with that any accommodations! So yeah hung out on the beaches of Goa just chillin’ doing a bit of 420 and stayed away from the usual drinking and carrying on that I do on a lot of my trips!!!

So yeah my trip to India for a bit over a month was a totally different experience and adventure! Cuz I made friends with and hung out with 2 poor Hindu cousins who had no formal education! But what the hells the difference cuz we could communicate and got a long really well plus we learned a lot from each others! Hell our backgrounds and culture were like worlds apart! But I got to love them and was really sad to say good bye to them! Hell I know that one day will go back to visit them! One thing I have to really fight is not to try and help them monetarily cuz like I don’t have anything myself! But compared to them shit I’m a gazillionaire! But that doesn’t matter cuz we all just try to share love and tranquility in living our lives the best we can!!! I got to really love my friend Sunita cuz she was sooo nice and couldn't help but feel sooooo sorry for Hindu chicks cuz they have really no privileges or rights in life! Hell they can’t go out to meet anyone on their own or even meet someone like who isn’t their husband or potential one! Shit I love that girl as she is such a beautiful person and so unlike any one I've met before! She is such a happy chick with a beautiful smile that warmed my heart! Hell the first time I saw and met her I was overwhelmed by her beautiful smile as it lit up her entire face!! I thought shit with the way her life is she actually doesn’t have much to be happy about or nothing to look forward to in life! She didn’t know what love was about, had no sexual urges like most people would in their mid 20’s, or knew what it was like to really like someone of the opposite gender! All of this plus her personality got me to really love her & I tried to help her make some money in her job so I bought some shit I wouldn’t normally get! Like some clothes, bracelets, a henna, foot massage (a Hindu woman can not give a guy a body massage only a guy could give it to another guy), etc. Sunita finally started to realize that a Hindu woman has little or no rights as compared to the men or Christian women! She told me she doesn’t want to get married but shit her mother is dirt poor so probably couldn’t pay the dowry (even tho it's supposedly outlawed in India now!) anyways! She was so loving and caring as she would spend a lot of time buying some over priced meat (for her), cook a meal and invite me over about every evening! So I felt bad as she would buy meat or fish which they couldn’t afford cuz they thought I’d want meat! So I told them that I’d eat what ever they ate as don’t have to treat me any different cuz in reality I’m not a big meat eater as it kind of bloats me and makes me friggin’ sluggish! So I gave them money for the expensive meat they’d buy just so I’d have some meat with my meal!! I’m sorry but can’t tell u how much love I had for Sudhir, Sunita and her adopted niece and younger sister! They’d bend over backwards to please me! They always offered to take me places cuz Sudhir had a motorbike so drove me around everywhere like a taxi! Then we went on a road trip and we rented a small car from Sunita’s brother’s boss for just $10/day!! So I couldn’t help but want to spend time hanging out with them! I learned a lot about living life as best u can, being dirt poor, working hard not complaining and probably simply existing from day to day with little or no future to look forward to!

Yeah I went to Goa to also meet up with my beautiful Russian friend Olga as we were really good friends as we met, hung out and thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company in Ethiopia! But shit when I got to Goa and met my 2 Indian friends well I decided to hang out with them rather than travel with Olga to Nepal to renew her Indian Visa! However we are still real good friends as think she understands that I had to help my 2 Indian friends at that time more than hang and travel with her!

Yeah went to India for some Spiritual Enlightenment but found some other kind of Enlightenment! Plus met some awesome nice Indian people who I got to really love and care for! So hopefully one day I can return and visit them again! Been to India a couple times before but wanted to see some new places. But didn’t actually see as much of India as had hoped to but got another more awesome experience instead! I usually meet and get to know locals in every country I visit as enjoy meeting the basic normal even poorer people as they are the types of people I truly enjoy meeting! But if someone would have said before I went to India on this trip that I would become such good friends with poor Hindu people that I loved like them well I wouldn’t have believed them. But shit regardless I wouldn’ t have changed anything for that experience! I will never forget them as truly love and care about them!!

However the next time I go to India well I’ll research the weather and time of year! Cuz want to see places that I’ve missed in my previous 3 trips there!

You can see some pictures I took and some verbal shit I wrote on my Facebook wall even tho I actually dislike using it! But it's easier to post pictures on FB than on my blog!

Crazy trip to India & didn't like Goa but never made it away!

What a traveler does when kinda F*ckin’ stuck in Goa b4 Monsoons!
