I am now in my 5th month of travelling and suddenly find myself in Los Angeles! I was in Kuala Lumpur and really needed a new plan and continent. Since Malaysia Airlines fly direct KL to LA it seemed like the thing to do! After 17 hours of flying (with a short stopover in Taiwan) and crossing the dateline I took off Monday afternoon in Kuala Lumpur and landed here Monday evening. Longest Monday ever! There is in reality a 15 hour time difference, something which my body is not agreeing with resulting in a jetlag like no other. I sleep all day and am awake all night.
A US roadtrip has been a dream of mine for a long time, and it begins Thursday as I leave Los Angeles behind and take off for the Mojave desert and Joshua Tree National Park. From there I shall explore California, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona. At least. Or perhaps I should say hopefully. Australia was insanely expensive but this is looking worse! I may need to rob a few banks along the way, Dillinger style. Hey it is for a good cause!
Much more to come as I get this USA show on the road. I also have in mind a bit of an update on the life of a ‘nomadic’ photographer. Stay tuned.
