    The short story is my AirBnB reservation didn’t work out as planned. I filed a complaint, and went back and forth with Airbnb for a while.

    In short, the reservation was cancelled, my money refunded AND they gave me a credit equal to what I paid. Nice job, AirBnb. 

    The down side was is I was unable to get another reservation, hotel prices were high for the weekend, so I chose to sleep in my car. Yep, chose to, and it was a good experience, overall.

    All my memories of car camping came back and I quickly found a good place for the night. Sleeping was hard, due to the space and that I kept getting cramps in my legs, but I made it work.

    Right now, I’m at an old standby hotel and here for a day or two, depending on if I sell my car – or not. 

    The adventure continues.

    Update

    A short time ago, I found out that yet another figurehead in Bucerias, Jorge, of La Cocina de Jorge has passed away. Details are a bit sketchy but according to some people I know, he was diagnosed with an inoperable form of cancer and left Bucerias to return to his home town to die. This happened about two years ago.

    It was a strange thing, to go back to Calgary after so long. It had been 16 years. The last time I’d been in Calgary was for my father’s unveiling. Read the rest of this entry »

    It’s been a long time since my last post. At the time I was still on the street and sleeping in my car. After a while, the stress of being homeless became too much for me and my energy levels started to fall. Eventually, I could no longer keep up my blog and had to give it up for a while.

    I’ve been offline for a few days, the result of ongoing homelessness issues (sleeping in my car) and financial stuff. All of that has taken an upswing, the result of a chance meeting and working with TAPS (Together Against Poverty) in Victoria. Read the rest of this entry »

    Before I go any further, I want to thank my friend Burt for letting me stay with him and for helping me in my financial recovery. Unfortunately, there were some problems with the environment which I couldn’t resolve. I felt it was better to leave and I did so, even though it meant sleeping in my car again, which I did last night. Read the rest of this entry »

    For a long time now I’ve looked at my life circumstances. So many times I’ve asked myself: “When is this situation going to end?” A few days ago the answer became clear: Stop asking the question. Read the rest of this entry »

    So much has happened as of late, much of it little to do with travel and yet, important from the perspective of living. In earlier posts I’d written about my spiritual journey, of awakening several years ago and the dissolution and disorientation that’s followed. Read the rest of this entry »
