Stan Diamond was an educator for most of his working life. But, it was his explorations and travels of the world that made his style of teaching unique. Now retired, he has begun to document his experiences – leading others down exciting paths they may not have chosen without his inspiration to guide them.
To quote: “Just in case you stumbled here by accident and dont have the first clue what a khaleria is….”, then let me explain. It is one part Sabeena Khan mixed with one part Ryan Galeria. Throw in a couple of backpacks, a camera (or two), give a quick stir and you have a photojournalistic [...]
The journey started about 10 years ago for Steve and Jocelyn Broyles. They are on their fourth Sandcruiser (landcruisers with attitude) and still on the road. Okay, there have been stops in between but never for very long. Besides Calypso, their dog, they are joined periodically by an assortment of friends, family and other travelers. [...]
The Road of Life: Interviews with Lainie & Miro – Part One ended with a discussion about their favorite places (so far) and how they go about choosing their next destination.
Part Two delves into their expectations of each other, their commitment to activism, creative endeavors and snowballs – the white frozen rain kind. Again, there are Miro’s remaining “Bonus Questions”. He even comments to something about his Mother’s quirky remarks… Hope you enjoy the read!
So, you take a trip to Costa Rica and fall in love. For Erin Morris, it was a love for the country, it’s people and a man. While ‘that man’ is no longer in the picture, Erin, and her dog, have embraced CR as their home. She’s continually honing her photography talent, teaching English and [...]
Luke Sewell had been living and working in the jungles of Costa Rica but, six months ago he decided to trade in the palm trees for a more conctrete jungle. He is now a Brit hiding out in Buenos Aires, Argentina and you can read about his ‘misdemeanors’ on his site.
Being on the ‘Road of Life’ does keep people in a somewhat constant state of flux. There is bad (or non-existent) internet, dead computers, travel time and a host of other issues. I must confess, it also took me a bit of time to compose questions that weren’t in the “So, whatcha up to?” style too. But, between the revolving “I’m sorry.” “No, I’m sorry” e-mails we finally came together on this interview. Actually, it will be posted in two parts as ‘bonus’ Q&As were offered up by Miro and worthy of inclusion. (They will be split into two parts also.)
So, without further ado, let’s see what Miro and Lainie have to say about their adventures in part one!!
To say Justin Klein is a “diverse individual” would be an understatement. He is a contract programmer based in both Kyoto, Japan and Los Angeles, California. Something says he doesn’t spend much time in either place when looking at his travel map. His site’s subtitle – Life of a Traveling Programmer – definitely strikes hammer [...]
Beer. It’s a wonderful thing. But, this particular Brew Master – yes, Kris Kalav is a Brew Master in the work-a-day world – prefers rum, martinis or the occasional umbrella cocktail. He has recently begun blogging about his various travels and some very interesting encounters. Oh, beer will be mentioned at some point. Brew Master…
Having been born on Pentecost Sunday, Conor believed that meant sainthood. Well, only to the age of six when he discovered differently. He was also an international rock mega-star – until his mother told him to go upstairs with his guitar and his songs. Now, he is traveling to see the world and writing about [...]
