I’m not THAT bald

PVP strip

After I left Dallas, Scott did a comic about me. A lot of people found this site in the last few days, so welcome.

I spent the entire day sleeping off whatever it is I have. I feel much better now.

    I did not buy a single RTW ticket. The first leg of my journey is in the south Pacific and there aren’t really any ticket packages you can get to take you everywhere. i can get an island hopper type deal, but its not a RTW ticket package.

    Beyond that, I don’t expect to be flying much once I reach a continent. I assume i’ll mostly be traveling by train or bus within Asia and only flying to places you can’t get to via land. (Japan, Indonesia, etc)

    I’m also not really planning more than a month in advance, so having tickets booked that far ahead wouldn’t help me.

    Hey Gary, found your blog through PVP.

    Anyway, I´m done a little bit of backpacking myself, Europe and some Latin Amercia, and I´m really ithcing for a round the world trip.

    My question is, did you buy a round the world airline ticket, or do you plan to buy each plane ticket as you go?

    Love the comic!

    I wanted to pop in to let you know I’ve been subscribed to your RSS feed since last month. I’m currently saving for a trip exactly like yours so you can see why I might be interested. I should be ready to shove off about the time you are winding down. Following your travels will be great encouragement for me to keep saving for my own exodus from “real life”. Safe travels!


    “From this hour, freedom!
    From this hour I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines,
    Going where I list, my own master, total and absolute,
    Listening to others, and considering well what they say,
    Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating,
    Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the hold that would hold me.”
