Welcome!  AwayAwhile.COM is now split into four main parts (the headers you see at the top of this page).  It’s all pretty self-explanatory, but for a concise overview here you go:

I - The AwayAwhile Journals cover my original travel journals, 2002-2006.

II - Normalcy, Sort Of tells of my immediate post-trip working and writing life, 2006-2009.

III - Asia Again summarizes (another) half-year in Asia followed by a move to Canada, 2010-2011.

IV - Vancouver picks up with a new life in this great city, 2012+.


Brian’s Travels (And Life, I Suppose)

“Don’t you think you’d have to be a hopeless nonentity to play only one role all your life, to have only one place in society, always to stand for the same thing?”
