There are many links to scanned photos within the travelogues above. All images are 150k or less in size, except where otherwise noted. Most of the destination pages have multiple thumbnail images, which means the pages may take a minute or two to load if you are using a slow Internet connection.

I don't pretend to be an eco-tourist, so if you are looking for that angle, you won't find it here. I prefer to travel with a generous level of comfort. This means you won't find me using any of the local buses, seated amongst the chickens and vegetables - I'll be the guy in the taxi passing the local bus and taking a photo!

On the other hand, I try to not stay in Hiltons or Holiday Inns, or use American Express travel. I have found that I get much more out of the trip by using locally owned and operated hotels and travel services. Why travel 10,000 miles to stay in an American-style hotel? I may as well save my money and stay at the Four Seasons in Vancouver for a few days. Club Med also doesn't appeal to me, despite considering myself a confirmed hedonist. There is something about those loud speakers announcing to the throngs that "signups for volleyball are being taken next to the bar" every five minutes that reminds me more of an army camp than a vacation spot. Don't get me wrong - they offer good travel value - it's just not for me.
