Trolling Malaysia

On June 7th 2015 I shared an opinion, via Facebook, about some insignificant and largely-irrelevant event in Malaysia.  About 2 hours later, my Facebook post went viral, and the proverbial shit hit the fan. This post is dedicated to re-telling this funny funny story which incidentally is the story behind Monkeetime’s “Trolling Malaysia” and “The Naked Truth”.  For increased effectiveness […]

Hongkong | The Metropolitan Wilderness

Hongkong is, in my opinion (and let’s not fuck about, my opinion is legal tender here) one of the most livable cities in the world.  It is a bustling megacity with all the entertainment and excitement associated with a city of 5 million people, yet, a short bus or train ride away, it has beautiful mountains, and plenty of nature, […]

Everest Base Camp Trek with Himalayan Trexplorers

It’s not much of a secret that I have been spending part of the year in Nepal, guiding trekkers to Everest Base Camp.  It is a fun job, well, more of a hobby really because I do not look at it asa job but more of a lifestyle that pays for itself.  Last year I decided to shoot couple hundred […]

Monkeetime Brunei | Tattered and Brainwashed

Brunei popped up on my travel itinerary quite spontaneously. I needed to do a visa run, and havin already gone to just about every place in S. E. Asia with the exception of Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and Brunei, I though, “fuck it, Brunei it is!”, given the difficulties in getting to the other two. I booked a dirt […]

Monkeetime Koh Tao | Thailand’s Divestyle Island

Spending several months at a time, and making my base there, I have been returning to Thailand’s Koh Tao island every year for the past ten.  There are several great reasons for that, as well as a multitude of tiny ones.  It is a comfy place. It is a quaint place. It is fun, it is a party, yet it […]

Himalaya – Annapurna Circuit (series)

Providing a combination of spectacular high mountain scenery, picturesque lowland farms and villages, a wealth of cultural interest and a challenging pass crossing, the 160km long Annapurna Circuit trek is simply superb.  Tucked away between the tallest peaks of the Himalayan Range, this epic trek puts one seemingly within stone’s throw from several high peaks including Manaslu, Dhaulagiri and Annapurna I, II, […]

Canadian Rockies

In April 2012, without neither a plan nor notice, I ended up returning to Banff, my dinky little hometown in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.  While I was not born there, I first explored the area in 2002 after being convinced by my friend Matt that it is the proverbial “cat’s ass” (you’ll have to look up that […]

Monkeetime North Korea

I have been moderately fascinated by North Korea as long as I have been aware of its existence and its political system.  An isolated, poor country, shunned by its neighbours and run by a psychopathic government…  What’s there not to be curious about? Often referred to as “communist”, North Korea is as communist as Dick Cheney is a Democrat…  The […]

Mongolia | Gers gone CUT!!!! – Outtakes and X-tras!

Gers Gone Wild (which you may or may not have seen already) was a 3 week romp through the spanktacular and diverse scenery that is on tap in Mongolia.  Many days of driving, countless adventures, heaps of new stuff, no shortage of challenges: it was everything that travel is supposed to be, and one of the best expeditions I had […]

“Nine Years of Backpacking” – A reflection on life, universe, and dusty trails.

“Nine Years of Backpacking” – A reflection on life, universe, and dusty trails.

I stepped off a plane on February 6th, 2003, and everything changed. Big time…  Since then, February 6th is a special date in my head. It’s not like anything extraordinary happens on this day, but I get a repeat of that flashbulb memory first shocker of arriving in a completely up-side-down place, the feeling of not knowing W.T.F. is going on, […]

“Backpacking India” video series (2009)

This is Monkeetime’s most successful backpacking video project.  I had already visited India on several occasions, and every time had judged the country to be an absolute, mind-blowing, life-altering, stomach-upsetting acid trip.  All in a good way. Usually. The cultural diversity, the mix of riches and poverty, the insanely rich history, the population density and many many other factors all […]

“Indonesia” video series (2008)

While working in Taiwan, myself and Derek took some time off and headed to Indonesia for 3 weeks. While not too close, the price of airline tickets went down BIG TIME, and we managed to get return flights from Taipei to Jakarta for well under $400. Thus, we hit Jakarta, Yogjakarta, Bromo, Bali, Flores and Komodo, and had 3 weeks […]
