Back in the USSA!!

Im back, actually I have been back for almost a month now, thus the no new post. I have been filming a lot and covered a few thousand miles by car, but I have not had (made) the time to edit any of the new videos. so, for those of you who enjoy watching my crappy little (sometimes too big) videos, I will have more soon.
I am hitting the road next week driving up to Portland and after a few days there, I will start my major trip around the US. I have a car, new tent, new sleeping bag and I am ready to travel.
so stay posted.
words of encouragement are appreciated.

I have to say living in asia is such a specific experience and you absolutly captured the essence of what it is like to live in korea. the feelings of confusion, isolation, and amazment. I really am enjoying navigating your site it transports me back there. when we returned to canada my boyfriend, inspired by korea and what he saw there decided to embark on an art project throughout canada. it was half travelling installation half performance art. Basically with the help of all of the money he saved he built a mobile out house on wheels called the poopsicle house, from which. he was going to go on a cross canada tour selling chocolate covered babanas from the outhouse on the streets of urban centres. his intent was two fold, one was tied to marshal mclewan's notions of media being the message. his podium like outhouse became a symbol for attention and gained him a lot of media and public voice... the intent was that we all have the ability to speak out and take action but most of the this attention in our western world is to promote crap. secondly he was comenting on the state of our food intake and how we take care of our bodies. basically he was selling "crap" as a statment that we intake a lot of crap. his intention was to use organic fair trade bananas, but fairtrade bananas were only available in one store in the whole country in vancouver. anyhow i joined him of the western leg of the tour and it was amazing to see people's reactions and a neat way to get back into being in this culture again.

so ... after this long post I want to wish you luck on your trans american adventure. I do not know you but enjoy your site.

I think korea has taught us a lot and I do not regret going there, although there were times when I wanted to tear ny hair out. I have been back in Canada for two years now, and have decided I want adventure again and I want to do something good for the world. So me and my bf are heading to sarejevo bosnia in the fall to try to find ngo work. worse comes to worse we will try to teach. can't be worse then teaching korean children I suppose.

either way good luck on your journeys sir

ps. you have inspired me to start a blog of my own when i head out to europe
