I like to travel, period. I have been to 31 of 50 US states, with time in 13 states so far this year, with one more additional state getting added, plus DC, to my "year-end" total, when i do a 184.5 mile, 6 day, bike trip in two weeks.

I've also been to 19 countries, with multiple visits to the UK (four times), France (10 times), and Brazil (15 times). Only in the US so far this year, but will add a new country (Portugal), and another visit to the UK, in August.

And it's not because i'm loaded with money- this has mostly been very low-budget travel, afforded by scrimping on other things (like never having had a car, and cooking instead of buying prepared foods, buying most of my clothes used, etc).

Most of my travel has been by bus, rail, bicycling, and hitchhiking, with airplanes involved when there are oceans, and back when i used to travel to conferences as an academic. Generally staying with folks met on the road, friends and family, and camping/sleeping rough, and the occasional hostel or hotel.

I will be in London for two days, staying with friends, who live in Brixton.

Just zipping over from Portugal to see one of my few old pals who isn't dead, though it is likely i will visit the Imperial War Museum, my favorite London tourist attraction.

I've been to New York, Paris, Stockholm and Barcelona and the UK channel Isles. Less than a week each. Was worth it I guess. London is just one big sprawling English council estate with historical sites like the palace in the middle.

Every time i go to London, my friend that i am going to visit spends the first couple days that i am there pulling me out of the path of speeding buses until i acclimate to this peculiar habit of driving on the wrong side of the road, shared by the Japanese and the Australians i believe. With only two days there on this trip, i will try to avoid crossing the street. Maybe this odd habit is some sort of island-related thing (UK, Japan, Australia)?

if that theory held water or was held by water, then all islands would drive on left hand side of road.....

to me the ODD habit would be to drive on right, and have left hand drive vehicles and just as you guys are stuck doing it our way, we are and I would be stuck doing it yours....

I do know there is much kerfuffle here over tourists coming here and getting international licences and then driving on the wrong side - the right side, crashing badly into other vehicles... the europeons do not seem to have much trouble but the chinese do seem to have trouble adjusting

I realize that not all islands drive on the wrong side of the road, but as far as i know only (some) island-nations do this. This may be because of islands' lack of land borders with countries that do it the other way.

[Have just thought of the Chunnel, where they must deal with this- what do they do? suppose i could give it a google. Doh! It's a rail tunnel; nevermind]

I also realized that, even as i was, in writing the above post, thinking about the many times my pal "English John" (he used to live in Brooklyn in the '90s) has pulled me out from in front of a speeding double-decker London bus, i was (in my mind's eye) picturing the bus coming from the left as i tried to cross a two-lane street (the way it would in a civilized, non-backwards country), rather than the right, where those giant red death-juggernauts actually come from.

I am doomed.

I associated with many Chinese folks ... from mainland China. I'll let you in on a secret. They, in general, seem to have trouble everywhere, right-laned or left-laned.

However, my observation is about 35 years old, and since that time a LOT more cars have been introduced to China, so maybe they're not quite as inept as they used to be.

More on driving on the wrong* side of the road:

Today, only 35% of countries drive on the left. These include India, Indonesia, Ireland, Malta, Cyprus, Japan, New Zealand, Australia and most recently, Samoa in 2009. Most of these countries are islands but where land borders require a change from left to right, this is usually accomplished using traffic lights, cross-over bridges, one-way systems or similar.

https://www.historic-uk.com/CultureUK/Why-do-the-British-drive-on-the-left/

Better article here:

https://www.worldstandards.eu/cars/driving-on-the-left/

Forgot about India (where i have been), the notable not-an-island on the above list. Pakistan also drives on the left, so i must have passed through the side-switching in the Khyber Pass on the bus leaving Afghanistan, but don't recall it.

Other non-island left-side driving nations are Guyana, Suriname, Thailand, and most of southeast Africa:

https://www.worldstandards.eu/cars/list-of-left-driving-countries/

We can now return to the bickering that normally occurs in these august groves after this wholesome educational interlude.
_____________
* Note that this is a relative term, and do not assume your national habits are being slighted. Whichever side you think is the right one, lots of folks are driving on the other side.

I love traveling! I hate airplanes noawadays though, too cramped, uncomfortable and tedious.

I have been to the following countries for trips (at least a week) and or living/studying, most of them multiple times:
USA
Portugal
Spain
England
Scotland
Wales
France
Belgium
The Netherlands
Germany
Denmark
Norway
Italy
Austria
Czech Republic
Poland
Ukraine
Romania
Croatia
South Korea
Japan

Countries on my list to see before I kick the bucket:
China
Ireland
Mexico
Egypt
Malta
Russia
Argentina

I can thank my father for being posted in the NL and Germany, for being able to travel and live in most of those countries, and studying abroad/foreign girlfriends for the Japan and Korea trips.

Most recently I was in Portugal and Germany on different trips. Haven't been to Asia in 10 years though 🙁

So the brothers and sistren of the left hand path are outweighed 2:1 by the white lodge drivers. That makes sense. Revelation tells us a third of the population will be driven into a lake of fire and brimstone. Repent! ye Brits and former colonials (plus Japan). Save your soles from the eternal fire.

I'm no international expert. I have been to USA, Canadia, Mexicana (almost to Guatemala), and Hawaii. So anything I say can be disregarded.

I haven't figured out yet which way they drive on the astral plane, but survival on the causal plane requires driving on the center-line, preferring neither side.

The roads were so small in Japan they may as well officially drive in the centre, as that was what was actually occurring, with the Japanese having a penchant for large vans and SUV's which took up the whole of the road, both 'lanes.' That was in the early 2000's so I wonder if they are into small cars again. Fads and all that.

Driving in Portugal was absolute madness. I almost had a heart attack daily.
The worst part was that every single roundabout only had one lane, total.... So you would be driving on a 2 or 3 lane road, and then it would instantly funnel into the single roundabout and everyone is speeding and trying to dodge the other cars entering, not to mention the ones already in the roundabout.

It was there that I saw a car totally flipped onto it's roof, with no curb or obstacle to explain it. Also the same trip I saw 2 men at the side of the highway, trying to put out a fire blazing from their car near their gas tank, using their jackets to beat at the flames. Not so smart, I was waiting for it to explode on them.

@shiva I have to address the elephant in the room shortly ..its a revelation..

I haven’t figured out yet which way they drive on the astral plane,

me neither I haven't even figured how to get admission into it let alone drive or fly...

ok D1 is sitting here discussing this very thing as I type. She has been able to "astral travel" since she was five... *Im envious... I dont think I ever have... I won't go into detail here tldr; kinda thing .
after listening to what she says I actually wonder if anyone else has a similar or same experience.. of somewhere else

but survival on the causal plane requires driving on the center-line, preferring neither side.

I am starting to see/correlate something there.. hasn't fully formed yet but is conceived...

It all makes sense now! According to the sources i posted, the reason for driving on the left-hand path is to leave one's right hand free to grab one's Sword to defend one's Self- clearly the work of ego-controlled Black Brothers!

Whereas driving on the right-hand path originated to allow large vehicles (in Sanskrit, "Mahāyāna") to pass in opposite directions, each driver respecting the contrary Will of the other. The "Star Sponge Vision" in microcosm really.

No wonder i never got a driver's license!

christibrany: Why no Canada? If you live in a place where there are elk-burgers to be eaten, you can't be very far away, although of course Winnipeg (where i have in fact been) or someplace like that may be the nearest city. But you can get to Montreal by driving or taking a bus or train (or flying of course).

Vancouver is also very nice. Winnipeg may not be the most exciting place i have ever been, although i bought excellent amphetamine from some bikers in a bar. I was there as a flunky delivering papers (on behalf of the NYC law firm where i worked in the mailroom) to be signed by some Canadian insurance company as part of the Chrysler loan bailout.

I really like Canada, especially the French part. Much better food than the US (in terms of raw materials, and excellent cooking in Montreal and environs), tons of historic stuff to see, and cheaply obtainable cultural difference which is after all the point of travel.

Like Brazil (but in very different ways), Canada is like a "Bizarro World" US- everything is the same yet different.

Of course, to a Commie like me, Canada might be "America done right", but as a visiting conservative, they will not make you partake of that gummint health care, and you can passively benefit from (while philosophically opposing) the excellent roads and public transportation, highly regulated food production, etc. Also, for those who enjoy "the grass of the Arabs" it is of course legal there.

Mexico is also high on the cultural difference bang-for-buck ratio for US travelers. Get a cheap flight to whatever supertouristy hellhole, and get a bus ticket to anywhere else kind of far away, then get off the bus in whatever small town looks interesting. This is a good general plan for third-world travel.

oh crap im backwards again.. because im left handed and my left hand would be my sword hand ..

"black brothers" you speak of often.. I remember long long long ago quite a few degrees of the wheel have turned, they were an implied threat.. paraphrasing if you don't submit you will be left to the black brothers to take care of .... and being exposed to the black brothers means you will eventually go crazy mad.. correct me on that

if my recent experience is anything to correlate ...... an April experience keeps running through my head to this moment "black brothers"
and that's what I call them .. a setup meeting directly after a life shattering revelation while I was at my weakest that left me careless... 11:11 - my *ss hospitals - double my *ss..

and it burns burns burns, my ring of fire.. not sure whether I posted this..
..

hey do you like my new A tattoo with the electricity rod/spark/wave through it? still hurts like heck sometimes like there is indeed lightening bolts going through it..

Swords don't work

Im not sure about how things are on the other side of the abyss and until I get to the stage when I have sorted the crap so that Im not subjected to the "because" forces around me that are old skin ...........here upside downunder 'ego' is ok unless you don't ride the beast.. it can give enough confidence in ones self to step up and on... .. I had it beaten into me physically and emotionally that I was nothing but a piece of crap one would wipes off ones shoes .. if I hadn't had the secure loved and free childhood that I had I would of had no ego and therefore would of given up on finding everything long ago...

Whereas driving on the right-hand path originated to allow large vehicles (in Sanskrit, “Mahāyāna”) to pass in opposite directions, each driver respecting the contrary Will of the other. The “Star Sponge Vision” in microcosm really.

Im only teeny tiny micro not megalo... I can step aside and wait so mack trucks and the road runner can pass me comfortably beep beep *insert ACME dynamite here

@Ignant666 good question...Canada is on my list of to-go-to's but it's not important enough in my ego-brain for the vaunted 'Bucket List.' More of a 'when I have time and am super bored' list. In particular, since I like both French cuisine and comics (so fancy) I have been wanting to go to Montreal. Plus Niagra Falls... I had a French Canadian pen-friend of the female variety I used to talk to on the phone years ago but she has fallen off the radar unfortunately. I hear a lot of Canadians complaining online about Canada's social programmes and Trudeau in particular, so I won't stick my nose in that particular verbal pie! Speaking of more casusal French cuisine there is a French Café (that's the very creative name of the establishment) across the street from my house, and the French owner and her family that run it do an amazing job. My go-to's are the Normand sandwich (baguette with thick slice of Brie cheese, butter, prosciutto) and the Nutella crepe I believe they call the Alice. mmmm

RE Mexico (RE means regarding, Dom) I am highly interested in the 'ancient' civilisations, Toltec, Aztec, Olmec etc and would love to see me some skull pits, cenotes, and ruins. The Castaneda books really influenced me a lot when I was near the beginning of my Path, despite not knowing whether or not Don Juan was based on a real human or not...
I am one of the strange ones that can find deserts beautiful too but I don't want to find myself in Cartel territory. . .

Cancun/Cozumel is a cheap flight from much of the US, and just get a bit away (bus ride) from that coast, and there are many ruins and Maya villages. Or fly to Mexico City and head south to Oaxaca (train to Puebla, bus after).

Montreal is well worth your time. Most of it is a clearly French city from all the architecture etc, and just general vibe; there are bits where we are suddenly not in France but Bizarro US/UK, but not many. Very good food everywhere. Much cheaper than US cities of comparable size.

If you go to say Spain this time of the year there may be a mosquito problem in hotel rooms so on. From random website;

It is believed Brazil, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand have the highest numbers of mosquito species. Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Brazil are recorded to have the highest number of endemic species. However, it is the whole of Africa, South America and Asia where most of the mosquito-borne diseases occur.

Now I know having a big lump on your body (after effects) is not the end of the world but I could do without it. Crowley tells the story that he slept outside and had perfected his asana to the extent that they left him alone. I take it he was in Asia at the time. I'd have to consult my notes.

Everyone on the Right-Hand Path knows that Tom and Jerry can only get us as far as 7=4, and that that after that, we must look to The Roadrunner.

Note that The Roadrunner runs across the abyss unharmed, but The Coyote plummets to his death- because he looks down.

ross river fever and dengue fever are two mozzie borne diseases that have grown in numbers recently here in Australia we do not have malaria as a bite complication though that I know of

and most or all the mozzie borne diseases found in australia are only in our tropical or sub tropical "wet" areas.

I drink indian tonic water with a splash of gin and a piece of lime 😀 so the quinine in my system keeps those parasitical & viral diseases down. I hope

Now I know having a big lump on your body (after effects) is not the end of the world but I could do without it. Crowley tells the story that he slept outside and had perfected his asana to the extent that they left him alone.

what is this big lump you have ?

asana I try maybe I try too hard.. meh I will hash it out... sleep? I can sleep anywhere curl up if Im tired as long as I am warm

100 tabs open in chrome or firefox is my international travel. Yesterday was Iraq and Babylon..and the new discoveries from "global warming" that have drained around the Tigris... I have hopes I'd love to travel overseas or just travel around in a tarovan with my dog and my bird

ps I never knew tweety bird was a lawyer he seems to deal with a fair few torts

Cult of Ku in Vietnam and further where it is customary to cannibalize the christians and offer the head in order to court the daughter.
Any way Vietnam has mosquitoes and if you complain about the leaches to the hotel manager in Polynesia, they will tell you that; that is part of the ordeal of ta bodily awareness released in order to serve the bodhisattva ideal but if you want to cancel the tour;
you are on your own and will still be charged.

Ig: but The Coyote plummets to his death

Actually, he always plummets to a splat ... but he's always seen again in the next scene or the next reel. The question before us is: Is the reappearance reincarnation, immortality, or just a series of clones or offspring?

[unknown]: Crowley tells the story that he slept outside and had perfected his asana to the extent that they left him alone.

If I'm not mis-taken, Asana had nothing to do with it. I believe he made dhyana upon/with the nasty buggers ... and then they left him alone.

Please let me/us know how you like Porto. Such good food...Some of the little restaurants by the riverbank in one of those cobbled streets, near the Eiffel-designed bridge (did you know that? Gustav Eiffel) are superb. I believe it was on Rua de Fonte Taurina that I am recalling a super restaurant.
For dishes try rojoes, and arroz de marisco 🙂
The port (beverage) tour at Sandeman was fun as well as the cable car/funicular.
Bom viagem 🙂

We are supposed to go to the Azores sometime in September or October bc Azores airlines screwed up royally on our last trip to Porto so they have given us a free voucher for the flight there...but I am not sure if we will have time.
Next trip for sure is Sacto and San Fran next month. Should be interesting.
I am still in shock (no awe unfortunately) at the prices in San Francisco for the hotels....

We drove from Toronto to Montreal last July. As much as I enjoyed the food in Montreal, I found travelling around a real nightmare. Every day we were stuck in traffic jams and saw cars overturned, on fire etc. Didn't find the comic book stores, christibrany, where are they? Planning on going back next year.
They were driving almost as bad as the French and the Italians lol. Worst places for driving in Europe for me were Palermo and Lisbon.

Hi Brigitte,

I've never been to Montreal but I would like to. Thanks for the heads up RE the transport. When we travel we tend to only take public transport and ride-sharing since I find driving stressful and I am supposed to be on holiday. Of course it depends on the availability/ease. In California we had no problem taking the public bus and trains and then getting Lyfts when we needed to. I think we spent about 60 bucks on Lyfts total for a week which is cheaper than renting. Then the public bus/metro train was about 90 or a hundred. So that definitely works out cheaper than a car. Especially when you add gas. Sorry, felt like doing some math..

In regards to comic shops there I just searched 🙂

Yes worst driving is consistently (In Europe) in Italy and Portugal, Spain. Those lowly Southern countries 😉

Am presently in Ibiza in the house music clubs. Afro-Cuban and Latin beats. John Bolton's and Donald Trump's version of Hell i guess.

Party boy dom 😀 I used to DJ house and liked to dance at raves but not so much these days. Now I dance in my living room. Have fun there.
