< travels >

These are excerpts from my journal that I kept while I travelled the long way home from Taiwan. I went through Hong Kong, Vietnam, China, Russia, Hungary, Vienna, the Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, France, Ireland and England. 13 countries. Mileage being roughly: 6,200 miles on 5 airplanes; 3,000 miles on 22 buses; 13,100 miles on 26 trains; 700 miles on 4 ferries; and 200 miles in 5 cars. Not to mention the inner city miles on buses, trams and subways; the country miles on horses and bicycles; the miles and miles (and more miles) on foot! All in a 143 days. A short time depending on who you talk to.
