I did a tourism! part 5 [photo-dump]

Here are some more pictures from Summer 2020, this time from Thessaloniki. I didn’t get a lot of great shots here, as I spent most of my time walking around nostalgically.

I did a tourism! part 4 [photo-dump]

Man, this series has no end! I really took a lot of photos this past summer. All of these are continuations from my trip to Ioannina in northern Greece.

Self employment: The Good

I realize that I am not always the best human being walking the globe. I don’t expect to be. Frankly, I done alright with my mediocrity. But there are at times moments when I realize that everyone is reacting to something and I seem to be reacting in a very different way. My first dose…

Leaving Chalkida

I’ve finally figured it out. For years now I have been saying that I just do not fall prey to nostalgia. I react to the mere mentions of things like high school reunions with a dead, thousand yard stare and a look of utter confusing, expressing my disbelief that anyone could think such an idea…

I did a tourism! part 3 [Photo-Dump]

If it seems like all I am doing these days is vacationing, well, that isn’t exactly the case. These pictures were taken maybe a day after the pictures from my previous photo-dump. I just don’t want this to be a photography blog, largely because I am not all that good at taking pictures. But some…

Fortune Favors the Bold! [Photo-Dump]

In my previous photo-dump I mentioned that I had gone to Meteora. Well, the plot is a little thicker than that. The first day I got to the town just outside of Meteora in the blazing heat of noon. The hostel matron told me I would be a fool to go up to the monastaries…

I did a tourism! [Photo-Dump]

Ok. I don’t know what was harder – four months of employment quarantine, or one month of self-employment. But after the both of those back to back, I need a vacation. So I took one. I went to the monasteries of Meteora in northern Greece. Fantastic place! More photos – and anecdotes – to follow…

Sad Birthday Post

It’s my birthday. Today pretty much, as you are reading this. Not fourth months ago when I wrote the post you’ll read next week. But actually today. I am not reckoning for a great birthday this year. I have had a birthday tradition that I have followed for the better part of the past fifteen…

Apologia for a Vice, part two

I was a smoker for many years. Emotions about this are mixed. If I knew with certainty that tobacco would never negatively impact my life, I would run to the nearest shop to buy some. Alas, that isn’t the world we live in. I elect not smoke in the hopes of improving my quality of…

Taiwanese Contemporary Art Museum [Photo Dump]

I happen to love weirdo contemporary art. So I took a ton of photos at this particular museum. It was pretty much the only museum where I did take any photos. The exhibit they had was weird, but not entirely unpleasant.
