How I feel today, or a start down the proverbial travelers path.

It is because we put up with bad things that hotel-keepers continue to give them to us.

I will go flyt to Guatemala tomorrow, hope to visit with two friends, Wade of Vagabond Journey and Hot Spring Chris. Maybe next to Dominican Republic, over to Europe, then either towards Russia or Africa, it it is a coin toss, and as normal, do not believe anything I predict, I never can seem to stay with a plan, I truly do wander the planet.

An American Story

Acapulco Mexico
Pie de la Cuesta
Playa Luces - 8 Miles North of Acapulco

Ten years and too many miles, around the world a few times, I have landed on ground zero of, the place where I lost my way and forgot how to go home.. I blame it on Grete, a Norwegian girl I met on this beach, somehow going back to the USA and working just did not compete with the Lonely Planet world path she was on. She now has two children and lives in Trondheim, Norway and here I sit again reading books on “The Beach” waiting for her to return and sing Norwegian Lullabies again. She made a Canadian guy cry when she sang, it was one of the times you never forget in a whole lifetime of lives, present, past and future.

I have not clear reason to be on this beach, it is too expensive, no Bikinis, this beach has went over the top and became a first class tourist trap, in true Tortilla pay too much Mexican style.

I do not miss Mexico, two weeks is already too much, I will beeline down the coast directly towards Guatemala, trying to not talk Spanish even though I am mas o menos fluent in the language.

Just another day in Paradise…

Number four definition of Paradise is: (2)
4. place ideally suited to somebody: a place where there is everything that a particular person needs for his or her interest (informal)
a surfer's paradise

For me another day in Paradise, my personal Utopia is not a place, it the realization I do not have to live in one place, I can live anywhere now I wish to be.

Andy small History

I left the USA for an Experimental lifestyle, I wanted to learn if I could ravel and earn enough money from the internet, whereby I could live anywhere on the planet with no restraints.

10 Years and 77 countries later, I have to say.
I have arrived, I have accomplished this goal, I can live in any country on the planet comfortably and happy.

I need to say special thanks to my Mother, Father, friend and supporters over the years.

So what now, as I start on my second decade of perpetual travel?

I have no plans to stop, I now have found my home, it is on the road, my paradise is moving and meeting new cultures, then getting totally annoyed and moving again, I am a traveler.

This is an American Story, no less, no more.

On the other side...

It is easier to blog, than to compile these newsletter, therefore I am going to post tips on the blog, then refer to the better one in the newsletters.

Today’s tip

Mexico same same...
Walked out the room, started to walk the kilometer to the Internet Cafe, passed a man with a huge shotgun, bulletproof vest, I realized he was protecting the Pepsi truck and was riding shotgun. I then caught a Combi to the corner, it turned left, I asked, do you go left or straight. They asked where I am going, I say the Internet Cafe, they do not know what this is, so I get off an walk. Upon arriving to the internet cafe at 10:30, it is closed, it opens at 9:30 am. Manana is enforced here...
