Le Voyages

This is a sorry attempt to squash procrastination habits in updating travel stories.

Lets see if having a dedicated page would solve it. I would have love it if WP gave  PHP editing for inline post and subposts in a page as a free feature, but since thats not going to happen, lets see if link-based lists will do instead.

This is a dynamic content, whereby new links will be updated once a new voyage was completed.

Travels in most recent order:

CABOT TRAIL, CAPE BRETON/ BANFF NATIONAL PARK /NEWFOUNDLAND (July 2011-tentative)

I’m putting it down here as a motivation to make either one of this to happen. Watch me (InsyaAllah). Hit me back if you have similar plans 🙂

ENTER THE STRIPES AND STARS

I did a 16 day all-train, budget travelling around North-East of US with good friends Azraf and Afiqah. We covered New York, Boston, Washington, Philadelphia, and went all the way down to Virginia.This travelling edition will always mean something special to me, since i think we epitomized what budget travelling means ( think sleeping in trains, eating 5 bucks footlong Subways and changing+showering at McDonalds during wee hours in the morning. Absolutely loved it.) However, this post doesn’t contain any of the experiences. AHAH. I was too lazy to write about the travels, post-uploading hundreds of pictures on facebook. Instead, i wrote about my little amusing encounter with the Homeland US officer- July 2008
