A Year in the Life of a Full-Time Traveler You are here: Home / Blog / A Year in the Life of a Full-Time Traveler All my life, I’ve dreamed of traveling the world. And in 2011, I achieved what I once thought was impossible without winning the lottery: I became a full-time traveler. And it wasn’t how I pictured. You DON’T need to be insanely rich to travel the world. So I may not be able to jet anywhere I want at a moment’s notice. Here is what a year in the life of a full-time traveler looks like! January: Thailand, Laos, Vietnam I rang in 2011 on Khao San Road in Bangkok. There was a two-day interlude in overrated Luang Prabang, and then I entered Vietnam (not without almost getting refused to the border). After recovering, I got to know Hanoi better — drinking snake blood was one way — and then experienced Halong Bay on the greatest party cruise of all time! February: Vietnam, Cambodia After returning to Hanoi, I hopped on an overnight bus to the imperial capital of Hue. March: Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia I was home.

Amazing Surf Photo Never Be My Friend When I'm bored, I browse through my friends' Facebook images, choose my favorites, and draw them. Sometimes I take... liberties. Let's just call it artistic license. R.I.P. when I drew you looking like a corpse. I occasionally wonder why I still have friends at all.

Thasos Grece Ten games that make you think about life At the start of this year, we decided to come up with a list of Flash casual games with a philosophical bent. To be honest, we struggled. After days of research, we could only find a handful of games that had the thought-provoking depth we were looking for. Fast forward to now, and it is remarkable how much difference a few months can make. In a wonderful twist, it seems it is the Flash gaming space - until now known more for the throwaway nature of its games rather than depth - that is leading the way in this exciting new area of gaming, as we hope the following games prove. One you have finished playing these games, check out our follow-up lists: Ten More Games That Make You Think About Life and Another 20 Games That Make You Think About Life. 1Immortall The game starts with you crash landing on a planet. 2Loved Take a cursory look at Alexander Ocias's Loved, and you could mistake it for a pretty basic platformer. 3I Can Hold My Breath Forever 4The Company of Myself 5Coma 6Loondon

This Awesome Urn Will Turn You into a Tree After You Die | Design for Good |... You don't find many designers working in the funeral business thinking about more creative ways for you to leave this world (and maybe they should be). However, the product designer Gerard Moline has combined the romantic notion of life after death with an eco solution to the dirty business of the actual, you know, transition. His Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree. I, personally, would much rather leave behind a tree than a tombstone. Editor's Note: The Bios Urn is a patented design of Estudimoline, the design company of Gerard Moline, a Catalan artist and product designer who designed Bio Urn for animals in 1999.

Villa Epecuen: The Town That Was Submerged For 25 Years Back in the 1920s, a tourist village named Villa Epecuen was established along the shore of Lago Epecuen, a salt lake some 600 kilometers southwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Lago Epecuen is like most other mountain lakes, except for one important difference. It has salt levels second only to the Dead Sea, and ten times higher than any ocean. Lago Epecuen’s therapeutic powers have been famous for centuries. By late nineteenth century, the first residents and visitors started to arrive to Villa Epecuen and set up tents on the banks. Around the same time, a long-term weather event was delivering far more rain than usual to the surrounding hills for years, and Lago Epecuen began to swell. Nearly 25 years later, in 2009, the wet weather reversed and the waters began to recede. No one returned back to the town, except 81-year-old Pablo Novak who is now Villa Epecuen’s sole resident. “I am OK here.

Splash out: the world’s most amazing waterfalls The bigger they are, the harder they fall – feel the power of the planet's mightiest and most beautiful waterfalls. 1. Victoria Falls, Zambia/Zimbabwe Image by MAZZALIARMADI.IT Explorer David Livingstone could be accused of dampening expectations by naming these falls after England's doughy queen: dour and staid they're not. Although flow is greatest between April and June, the best time for sunset photography is arguably October to December, when spray is not too heavy. 2. Image by Artur Staszewski Let's hear you shout it: Waterfalls are fun! Experience the falls on the Maid of the Mist, which sails from April to October. 3. Image by Mike Knell Elemental, my dear Watson! For an atmospheric approach, catch the historic cable railway alongside the falls, running from Willingen mid-May to early October. 4.

321, GO!!! Slide 3 Stories Down 2 Sides of a 1-Family Home | Designs &I... While it is far for the first time a family has indulged its children with such a whimsical addition, this may be one of the most well-integrated (and longest) at-home slides yet created. The long slide down (designed, ironically, by Level Architects)?completes a circuit that starts with a staircase running along two walls of the home – one could endlessly move in a circle, effectively, running up and sliding down (definitely a good way to tire the kids out before bedtime!). While this core circulation wrapping the edges of the interior is certainly a great first step, there are many other child-oriented design strategies to be found throughout the house. Other kid-friendly spaces include include ball-fillable playrooms, art spaces and copious shelves for kids books and coloring supplies.
