About Me and this Blog thingie
Greetings. I am in my late fifties. I am an expat living in Sharjah. “Where” you ask? Sharjah is in the UAE, the United Arab Emirates. When I travel and people ask where I live I say Dubai, which is right next door. I love it here. Dubai is the epicenter of air travel. dozens of places I have been in the last two years were just too far or too expensive to get to from the western hemisphere. Now, they are a few hours and a few hundred dollars away. I take advantage of it, repeatedly.
Before I started this blog I lived on an island off the coast of Panama. The two places could not be further apart in distance or lifestyle. I have definitely moved to the other side of the coconut, hence the weird title of this blog.
This is primarily a travel blog, although sometimes I dip into politics or just weird observations on life. My style is irreverent. I do not shill hotels, restaurants, or cab drivers. Sometimes I mention an excellent tour guide. when I do, believe me he is excellent. I save such evaluations for tripadvisor.
If you read my posts you will see that I really try to be honest, to a fault, about my experiences.
I have been where no white man has been before, I think. I am constantly trying to find another such place. Subscribe to this blog and follow me until I fall off the end of the world ( which by the way IS flat).
Peace, love, travel and OCCUPY.
