At last, I have made it back to chilly NYC after a long long 8 weeks on the road for Wok the Dog.
As some of you may know, I was thrown a curve ball while on the road in regards to the need for an Indian Visa and not being able to obtain one in Rabat, Morocco. Thus, I had to dramatically alter my travel plans.
In the 8 weeks I was on the road, I spent 3 days in Barcelona, 2 weeks in Morocco, 2 weeks in Egypt / Jordan, 2 weeks in Malaysia and the final 2 weeks in Taiwan.
This is was a tough trip. Tougher than any other previous but as always I meet some incredible travelers along the way, made a ton of new friend got a lot of great shots and am the better for it. This was also an important trip as Malaysia is the 20th country for Wok the Dog, marking the half way point on this epic project of mine.
I know you guys are all dying to know what was the final count on how many hours I spent on buses / trains / boats ….
The rules of the contest (How to be a travel ninja) states that the guess must be +3/-3 hours within the final count. Well…one of you, are off by 0.5hrs. Now what is the fun of a contest if no one wins? So Ms R.F. Congratulations!!!! You’ve won a lovely 7×7 print!!! It would be my pleasure to deliver it to you personally!
Here are on some statics related to this trip in case you are curious:
45 days (not counting the two weeks in Taiwan)
112.5 hours spent on buses/trains/boats
$52.86 per day of average daily cost (including food, lodging, fun, transportation, anything / everything except for the flight)
150,000 frequent flier miles redeemed
$1297.61 spent on flights
18 gigs of digital files
56 rolls of film shot (120 + 35mm)
872 total frames shot on film
209 frames made it through first edit = 23.96%
Thanks so much for keeping track and playing. I will be busy scanning films and deciding on new destination here in the following weeks. Check back on my blog to see new images from the trip.
