MJ's Southeast Asia Photos

I decided put my photo link on a new thread, so it won't get lost in the MJ Resurfaces thread.

Well, I finally uploaded the photos, I have taken so far.
Considering how long I have been in SEA, I didn't take as many as most tourists would have but I plan to increase the number I take as I get into travelling more.

Of course, my private collection of explicit moments will be available on a pay per view website. Worth every $1000 you will pay for each visit.

Hope you enjoy the free ones.

Btw, photobucket can be a bit slow at times.

If it appears to be hungup, just press the stop button and then press the reload or refresh button

MJ

From all of the viewers on the board (I'm certain they meant to post after viewing) and those of us "home bodies" that will never make it to such places....THANK YOU for sharing your adventures and experiences!

I'm about 80% sure, my next trip, in the fall, will be to India for an unknown amount of time. I hope to expand my experience with yoga, meditation and anything else that might spark my curiousity.

I hope to get into taking a lot more photos by then.

MJ (vagabond at large)

Re: MJ's Southeast Asia Photos

living vicariously now though such great pictures is going to make it easier to dump this house one day and live it for myself. i can feel the metamorphosis already, turning from lazy caterpillar to fluttering vagabondwannabe.

thanx for sharing.

Re: MJ's Southeast Asia Photos

Great pictures - thanks for sharing! Brings back memories of the 2 times we visited there. A return trip is absolutely in the plans for us after we FIRE. We fell in love with Thailand!

Enjoyed the pictures.

If you get the time to answer, I would like to know where you stayed at night and if you carried belongings on the bike (I ride and camp every so often and wonder if that is possibly how you got around).

My pleasure. It is Kansas and if you look carefully, I believe you can see Dorothy and Toto hiding in the cornfields.

We're off to the wizard, the wonderful wizard of LOS.

In SEA, you typically stay in inexpensive guesthouses. I didn't bring large panniers with me so when I went on trips with my bike, I travelled fairly light. I packed my small panniers supplemented by a light backpack. Next time I am definitely putting a front rack so I can have panniers there as well and lose the backpack.

Of course. It all tastes like chicken, Wait a minute that's rattlesnake.

I did try some fried insects that look like large maggots. Didn't have any special taste other than the spicies that are on them. Yammy.

After I got over the "work" phobia of taking the time to load and label the photos, I was hoping that some of the ER folks here would enjoy the simple photos I took.

I plan to increase the number of photos I take in the future.

Thanks

MJ

Well, I guess you answered my question there. I think you meant Thai stick not Tied stick. I'm having flashbacks to the late '60's here talking about that...haha!

"Tied stick" was a line from one of the Cheech and Chong movies.
