Getting There.

In my daydreams, I’m on trains looking out the window staring into some vast, unknown, lonely wonderland. My head is filled with swirling thoughts that seamlessly flow out of my mind in crisp, clean non-cliches. In these times, I’m a famous poet, a well recognized photojournalist, and a throw back to Sofia Loren. Of course, on these trains, I’m just on holiday from my regular life where I live in Uganda communicating with gorillas.

It seems that whenever I’m going from one place to the next I live in an amazing daydream.

I love transportation. I love the idea of going from one place to the next and everything that happens in between. And the reality is that if you’re going to travel, you will be using a lot of transportation. This page is a summary of some of the best sites that will get you to your destination. Be it a boat, car, plane or tuk-tuk, you’ll find it all here.
