Today, 21 May 2013, marks 120 days since I began this Around The World Trip, exactly four months to the day, and the first day of the 18th week. It’s been an amazing ride. And in many ways, it’s only just begun.

To mark the occasion I put together this quick slide show featuring one or two pics taken each day, set chronologically. One hundred and eighty in all, shot from 22-Jan-2013 thru 19-May.

Many thanks to everyone who’s followed and participated here on Piran Cafe, my personal and blog Facebook pages, Google+, twitter, Flickr and Vimeo. It’s all appreciated more than you’ll ever know. The next four months will have more of a work-based focus, so look for more posts, more stories and more photos. Please continue to spread the word.  🙂

    Hey Amigos! This slideshow is pretty amazing, and guess what? I’m about to be honored with a several-day visit with Bob, who will arrive in Jama this afternoon! I’m about to leave for Bahia de Caraquez to be his official Welcome Wagon! We’ll cross Rio Chone via boat taxi! (Boat taxi? I didn’t warn him about the boat taxi!)
    It’s going to be fun to see the area through his eyes!

    Enjoy this amazing slideshow and wish him ‘Buen viaje! – Happy trails!”
    Signing off until tonight,

    I am lost for words. To be in these places, meeting people, leanring new culture and traditions, to feel that excitement of living a life of adventure is a dream come true. Perhaps one day, I will get lucky and will have the chance to see the world like you did.
