Hot on the heels of the Pieman's Noodlepie nod is a link back from an article I wrote for Brave New Traveler. Entitled "10 Reasons why Volunteering is Better than Traveling", it argues for less hammocking and more helping.
Expect more from me on the, really rather good, BNT site soon.
Elsewhere Gadling has made my melon shot "Photo of the Day" - I'm honoured, although several hours after I have tried to correct them, via their comments box, they still maintain I am in Grenada. Apologies if you read this after they put it right.
Finally, let us spread the link love that is coming my way. Congratulations to Timen who is heading to my old stomping ground, Vietnam, to work for four months. Maaaan, you'll never want to leave. Read what Patty has to say on the subject of saying goodbye. My own over emotional leaving is here.
Timen, life here in Nicaragua is very good but I envy you setting off on your new adventure. Vietnam wears down most foreigners eventually but nothing can beat those first few months there. What an adventure. What an experience. Good luck to you. I haven't been reading your blog long but I like your style.
