Another weekend is upon us. I’m sitting at a cafe in Luang Prabang, Laos at the moment. Everything is good but the chair is little uncomfortable. Maybe it’s the sign for me to go. It was good to catching up my work and reading and making plans. And being in a hot weather isn’t bad either. Especially, papaya, mango and mangosteens are keeping me happy everyday.
Okay, here are five blog posts that I enjoy this week. Hope you like it too!
First stop, on yTravel Blog, When Travel Destinations gets Trashed and People Die. Around the time I first started Runaway Juno, one of the post I wanted to do was about how relavent the age of you when you are traveling. I was 20 when I first took international flight, and it was my very first backpacking trip to the other continent. It wasn’t that young; though it was a long time ago now I think of it. When I was there, I met few travelers who just got out of highschool, and met lots of mature travelers. For me, I’m different too. Maybe I’m now ‘mature’ traveler in young people’s eyes – or just boring. I don’t want to take any risk that factor my future. There’s a fine line between having fun and being an idiot, and lots of people are confused about the border. And it is really sad how young people get hurt or even lost their life while ‘having fun’.
Second stop, on On My Way RTW, Images from Burma: The temples of Mandalay. I told you (Read my relationship with Burma), Burma is following me. It’s the sign. And Megan’s beautiful photos are sending me stronger signs now — go to Burma.
Third stop, on Wandering Earl, How To Be Productive Anywhere. Yeah, I feel it more now, than any time before. I’m now on ‘pushing myself to clear the stuff off from the list and do more stuff’period. While I was doing this, I thought about this post I read a while ago from Earl’s blog, and read it again to see if there’s any tips that I’m not doing it now. Well, I’m doing it pretty good – in theory, but I feel like I’m not reaching my goal everyday. Probably I have so many things and want to do so many more things. Setting up realistic goal is important I think. But, yes, it’s pretty good advise, this article. And I recommend all of you to read it throughly, if you are having problem being productive! After all, this is self-employment’s biggest goal.
Fourth stop, on Bohemian Traveler, Kowloon at Night Stop Motion Video. One day when Stephen and I were wandering around Kowloon, we thought of this idea. Kowloon was very busy and good place to people watching. We had fun making this video and we’re glad that it shows the vibe of Kowloon pretty well. We had fun making it. And probably it’s another way to express our obsession about stop-motion video.
Fifth stop, on Arctic Nomad, Late for the Chinese New Year in London. I’m surprised there were so many people to celebrate Chinese New Year! It’s quite different that what I experienced in China for the new year. Firework here looked actually pretty but the one I experienced was horrifying. Seriously, we had to quicken our steps to not to be hit by the fireworks. People were throwing at each other. But it’s good to see Chinese people around the world are celebrating their holiday.
So there, you have it, The RSS of this week.
See you next week!
