The Acropolis

The name of the first track is Hi Life (Ed Did It) by Monkey Safari.  i cant find a copy of the track anywhere on the internet, but its a great song.

Greece.  The home of philosophy as we know it.  Where reason is the leader towards truth, or as far as we can come to understanding this reality.  Even after thousands of years of evolutionary changes in the landscape, the ruins of the temple created for Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, still stands.  Maybe only in pieces, but the mountain itself where communities of thinkers congregated together to discuss ideas still peaks high over the surrounding city.

The colors of this place are blue, white and gold.  It's dry and hot, dusty and sweaty.  Lavendar, sage line around the gardens and orange, olive, and pomagranite trees line the streets.  The town is not a city, but more of a maze, with winding roads and walkways that snake their way between old buildings.  People are friendly and rude, giving and needy, happy and sad.  

Once again many ideas have come and gone, and yet another "favorite place" has been added to the list.

Cymascope Website Link

I always feel like I have to remind people what my website name is inspired from.  Its Cyatics, the study of sound as visual representation.  Here it is, in its sunday best! 


There is so much to say about London.  Marble, Statues, Galleries, Street Performers, Parks, Pubs, Clubs, Cathedrals, Cabs, Buses, Markets, and People.  Lots of People, Crazy People, Cool People, Business People, Tourist People, Foreign People, British People, Party People, and not one of them is the same. 

That's what I enjoyed the most, and that is also the one thing I didn't take any pictures of.  

It went by in a blur, and the only thing I can think of to say is "Chap Chap, Cheerio!"

End of Asia Journey

Having just arrived back in Thailand, I went to a place that all backpacker's encounter at least once on their trip through Asia, but that I had somehow managed to avoid.  KhoaSan Road.

From my Hostel I was trying to figure out where I could go.  Having just blown $300 on a plane ticket to get out of Indonesia I was looking for a cheep solution for a nice place to stay that wouldn't totally destroy my wallet.  A tip off from a friend led me to Aonang.

On my final day, I took an adventure over to a spot called Railay, it was really worth the extra effort.  A good location for rock climbing, even being someone who doesn't rock clime, I found some pretty intense trails that are not for the faint of heart.

Having only brought flip flops, I had to abandon my shoes and hike these gagged rock cliffs barefoot.  This picture doesn't do justice, but from where my feet are to the area in the top left corner (Where the rope is) is at least twice my height.  For me this was a lot of fun!

Thanks Asia, right when I was starting to feel at home I was on my way to a whole new place.  Europe, I hope your ready for this!
