No leg room, no problem

Hi!  I’m clearly a glutton for punishment, as long, cramped rides are my thing.  Bus, share car, train, plane, ferry, dinghy, you name it.  I’m probably halfway towards an embolism by now.  It also helps that I’m tiny.  But well, for what I get out of it, several hours of discomfort is worth it for seeing the world fly by… ah yes, that’s right, my one stipulation is that I can see out the window.  Even without that, encounters with fellow passengers and no personal space often turn out far more interesting than the view anyway, for better or for worse.

Anyway, I’m Ivan!  I’m from Vancouver and born elsewhere, but I’ve most recently resided in Boston.  This is primarily a travel blog, meant to document my experiences (often, but not always involving cramped vehicles) from the past few years, and hopefully for years to come.  After a study exchange in 2010/11 in Singapore, I’ve realised that travelling is my passion and a priority in my life.  I find it an endless source of knowledge, perspectives, and human kindness, and I hope to be able to share some of that here as reminders to my future self. Though of course, whoever you are, you’re more than welcome here!

If you’re looking to start from the beginning of the blog, click here.  Things have changed a lot since then, from my choice of destinations to my travel style and even my writing, the more I’m exposed to different experiences, but… hey, I’m still me.
