Trip planning continues…


Fri Feb 26, 17:50: UA 875, NRT-SIN, arr 0:20 Feb 27 (with Robin)

I’ve also summarized a lot of my ideas so far on their own page.  And yes I’ll be blogging on my website, which also shows up as a note on Facebook.

Featuring Loretta

If you see only one Suburban Motel play, make it Featuring Loretta. Hilarious.

The others are worth seeing too, but that one is a must.

Caturday 21 Nov 2009 – 14:00 & 19:00
Funday 22 Nov 2009 – 14:00 & 19:00
Mainline Theatre

Plays tonight?

Anyone want to go see Featuring Loretta & The End of Civilization tonight at Mainline Theatre? These are plays 3 and 4 of the Suburban Motel series, but each is a standalone play so don’t worry if you missed the first two.

Today’s dose of WIN

For some reason, these remind me of Wallace and Gromit.

Go see Bent.

Those of you in Montréal who like plays MUST go see Altera Vitae’s production of Bent.  Awesome.

Also, welcome to my new blog.  WordPress + Dreamhost = significantly less suck than before.

…and so it begins.

The difference between dreams and plans is when you book a ticket :) I’m traveling in Asia next year!

Air travel booked so far:

Thu Dec 24, 20:50: AC  632, YUL-YYT, arr  0:47 Dec 25.  With Robin and Aslan.
Wed Dec 30,  7:00: AC 1197, YYT-YYZ, arr  9:15.  Robin's heading back to Montréal around the same time.
Wed Dec 30, 12:00: AC    1, YYZ-NRT, arr 15:05 Dec 31

The plan from there: spend ~2 months in Japan with an apartment in Tokyo but traveling all around (Honshu anyway.) Robin will arrive sometime in mid-February so we’ll do some of this together.

Then: fly NRT-SIN and head north overland. Climbing in Krabi/Railay. Visit Laos and Cambodia, but spend most of our time in Thailand and Vietnam. Arrive in China late April/early May and explore there.

Take the train to Lhasa in mid May, possibly alone or maybe this will be the last part of the trip with Robin. Mountain bike Lhasa -> Kathmandu. Fly back to China, train/fly to Beijing.

Around June 20: take the Trans-Mongolian & Trans-Siberian to Moscow/St-Petersburg, hopefully with Clare and Dad. Take another train somewhere that has direct flights to Montréal (AMS?). Fly home late July / early August.

Then… who knows? Probably drive to Burning Man :)

PS Anyone want to rent a plateau 5½ for $1125/month starting in January?
