Sep 1st 2010 1:36PM Pelee Island bewitched me! I'm glad you liked it, too.
Jul 7th 2010 7:03PM Super helpful post, Scott. I am in the market for a netbook, and it's nice to have all the info I need to make a decision in one place.
Jun 28th 2010 3:15AM Hi all,
Thanks for you comments. I actually did mean the tallest mountain in the world, rather than the highest. If you click my link in the first sentence, you'll be directed to the post I wrote about the difference between the "highest" and the "tallest" mountains in the world.
Jun 24th 2010 8:15PM Sorry, Scott, but the title "The Tallest Mountain in the World Above Sea Level" was just too clunky. I stand by my assertion that Denali is the tallest because you can only climb to nearly 14,000 feet on Mauna Kea. It's nothing personal towards Mauna Kea!
Thanks for reading and commenting.
Jun 23rd 2010 8:46PM Thanks for your comment, Robert! I did mention Mauna Kea, and noted that most of its height is underwater.
Dec 24th 2009 10:00PM Haha, that is most definitely not my writing - it belongs to whoever teaches the class before mine. I'm always amazed by it's tidiness, and one day I just couldn't resist taking a photo. What's fun is looking at this photo several weeks after I took it and realizing that I understand a lot of what's written!
Thanks for the comment.
Dec 18th 2009 10:38PM Thanks for the comments, all.
Soultravelers3, I can't help but notice the "we" in your comment, and I have a feeling that that "we" can make all the difference when dealing with travel fatigue. Part of my problem is that everyone who is close to me is across the Pacific.
But again, I want to stress my gratefulness for all of my experiences and say that despite the occasional bouts of homesickness and loneliness, I am indeed happiest living out of my backpack. It's just not always the easiest lifestyle.

Chinese trains are much better than Indian trains - I could never do 42 hours on a second-class Indian train! In China, at the very least, there are windows. And no folks coming through offering chai, bananas, whatever (which actually would have been nice at times).
Lauren, I agree, which is one reason why I chose the train over the plane.
