Peter wrote me to help me arrange my next hop to Bristol, England.
This guy has done about 100 plus countries. Only a true traveler could empathis with real problems of life.
Laundry and Senoritas.
HE WROTE... Plus more, but I edited..?
See you then dude. My Mother is leaving today and going to Spain for a week. The house will be empty. So, just make sure you bring a couple of senoritas with you and don't forget your laundry!!!
I may as well plan something to do on Thursay and Friday. Bath is close by, as is Stonehenge. Plus other stuff. Are you into visiting things like that?? Is there anything that appeals to you?
I want to learn about Black or English Tea and which pub he claims as his home pub.
Hmmm explain that phrase again?
Sort of my ad hoc motto, and my answer to all problems. I just say life is good and I am smiling again. I have been laughing to myself about a word used by the Forbes.com webpage writer... It was perfect.
¨a chaotic sprawl¨
The name Hobo as best I can remember does not mean someone that cares about looks. Just lets the world fly and takes a seat... hehehe. So ¨a chaotic sprawl¨is perfect. The blog is an afterthought and not really a first thought for my page. Keeping a diary of my events sort of interferes with my being able to make or have an event. Plus ¨Yo soy flojo¨ I say this in Spanish all the time. Which means ¨I am lazy.¨ Not really but in many ways yes, I like to enjoy the day, and not worrry about how I look or what I do. More on the spontaneous side of life. Planning seems to hinder enjoyment.
So there are choices in life for a traveler. Spend all my time working on my computer making a mystical and not real cyber world look pretty and dressed nice, or just do my best to slap up what really happened, and in the way it happens. This real time world of the internet is or should be chaotic.
What is really good is this writer lady.... Que Guapa! Christina does seem to understand the word ¨Vicarious.¨ She used that in the first page article. Funny. But life if a vicarious adventure. I read books and watch movies a lot. By the way. I am reading the book the ENGLISH PATIENT a second time. In a way an excellent travel book. The writer use a term saying he is an ¨International Bastard.¨ I am going to use the whole quote in tha quote section of my newsletter soon. This book is good, but pretty complex. I want to see the movie again. Book is probably better then the movie. hehehe.. Everyone always says that, but so what.
OK... So today back to the beach to try to be a Hobo Paparrazi and capture photos of Guapa Senoritas sin
... I do not know how to say the phrase well in Spanish. I will take some photos of beautiful topless girls on the beach to make a few of my friends happy.

The quote by Christina. I would put her full name, but this slide show thing don´t work too good in the Internet cafe quality world I live inside. I cannot get the pop up to show, so I can copy and paste. Oh well. SNAFU
QUOTE FROM CHRISTINA
Although Andy's site is a chaotic sprawl and is occasionally unavailable, what makes it compelling is the places he's visited. As Andy explains on his site, "I wander around the planet. Take photos. Put them on pages. Write and live an adventure. If the guidebook says to not go, I go." When the war with Iraq broke out, he headed straight there, reporting from Baghdad and Tikrit. He's also traveled through Kurdistan and Turkey, and lists on his blog what has to be one of the very few "Iraqi Hotel Guides." Unfortunately, he provides little information about himself but his tales and destinations make interesting reads.
FUN BLOGS TO READ
I just added, or am in the process of adding 5 categories to my homepage for travelers. The blog is not one of them. But I will think about it and see if I should make a category. But here are 5 travel blogs to read. Note that I have not read any of them, although I do know or recognized some patterns on where she found them. Reading a blog of someone else would cost more in an internet cafe then the cost of me living. I am doing very good on the 15 dollar budget in Spain. Paris was off the scale.
5 BLOGS RECOMMENDED BY THE FORBES.COM OR CHRISTINA ...
Have fun reading. I am put them up here so I could click easier and read.
Last but not least...
None of the above
Most of my photos of the beach at Barcelona are weak.
Here is photo form Thailands Koh Pha Ngan beach or the Full Party beach to keep you boys happy for awhile.
Someone has to do it. Beach life. Carlos, Justin, and few other. I promised a topless...
Yo no muy organizado hoy. Pero la playa esta perfect. Mucho sol.
I spend a long day at the beach. Lots of sun today. Trying to work on my tan before I leave Barcelona, Spain. Yesterday was a surfer waves day, and today was a wind surfer day.
But... The good news is Forbes.com put my blog in the running or vote for best travel blog.
Go Vote. Woopee. Thanks to the Gods that be, and the today the Sun Gods.
La Vida is Buena or Life is good.

Purchased a ticket to leave for Bristol, England in a week. Gave up on a lot of alternative locations and decided to go see Peter. He is the guy that was in Iraq when I was. We followed the same path for a week or two. He has the Petition of the English Scholars from Mosul, and has some free time to drive around England. So a good deal for me.
I got a ticket from Barcelona to Bristol for 80 Euros. It was cheaper to fly into London, but the transportation cost out of london would have killed me. So Easyjet.com got my business. Both of these have cheaper then the train fares or bus fares.
I HAVE 2 MAJOR PAGES FOR FLIGHTS THAT I WORK ON
I am setting new records on my site. What do you think. The topless girls?
But for those of you that like to know techie stats. I check my site by looking at this link.
I had 1400 Unique visitors yesterday.
Who knows how many hits?
WHY DO I CARE?
When this number gets to 5000 per day. I think I can be a Hobo for the rest of my life and just travel and write and make noise and do all sorts of things that Hoboes do. I will have Hobo Heavon and Hobo Freedom. Because the page should support me with no problem. Now there are problems.
I just want to tell you. Most travelers or a lot keep a daily diary or journal of their trip. I have never done this and this blog is the first time. Hope you enjoy. But to me listening to myself write or talk to myself seems a little on the crazy side. But I just read Alice in Wonderland and it for sure it is mad. It is very popular and people love the nonsense of the book. Hard to understand how nonsense can make sense. But in a strange way it does.
