    1 week ago by IvanTheIntrepid Episode 2 of the  #SriLanka   #tuktukdiaries  is up on YouTube. We finally get the hell out of  #Colombo , but struggle to find a place to  #camp  out for our first night. Click on the link in my bio to catch the action and see the beauty that came from the unpredictability.

    2 weeks ago by IvanTheIntrepid  #Kerala  is hot! And what makes it even hotter are all of the men walking around in their  #mundu  (kind of like a  #sarong ). I decided to beat the heat and pick up one of these breezy bastards for myself (it is literally a rectangular piece of cloth... simple like me). Tomorrow I think I will mount up the  #GoPro  and catch all the locals' reactions when I wear it out in public. If my two words of  #Malayalam  gets them excited, I can't imagine what this will do.

  • I got to meet up with a friendly face todayhellip
    1 week ago by IvanTheIntrepid I got to meet up with a friendly face today in  #Coonoor .  #RakeshSharma  became the first (and is still the only)  #Indian   #astronaut  to reach outer space. He flew with the Russians 33 years ago and was one of four astronauts that appeared on my first season of  @fireballrun . I was so stressed during filming I missed a lot of opportunities to talk to them one-on-one. Fortunately I got a little redemption today.  #toinfinityandbeyond   #ultimatetraveler   #indiancelebrities

    2 weeks ago by IvanTheIntrepid That beast is an old fashioned iron powered by hot coals. I stopped by the  #dhobikhana  yesterday, AKA  #TheLaundry , in  #FortKochi . The Dutch army used to bring people in from around the country to wash their uniforms, and now you can still find people washing, drying and ironing in similar fashion. It's a unique tourist attraction where you can go and watch people doing a task that we all typically begrudge. I found the place quite peaceful and it was charming the way the men and women went about their work with only the soft buzz of friendly conversations and…
  • Making friends with people in India is easy Especially whenhellip
    7 days ago by IvanTheIntrepid Making friends with people in  #India  is easy... Especially when those people are young kids who want to practice their English and educate you about trains, dinosaurs and their father's phone number. They also rattled off information like India's national animal (tiger) and fruit (mango). They seemed quite unimpressed when I couldn't reciprocate.  #schooled 
  • Munnar makes me think it is more rewarding to watchhellip
    1 week ago by IvanTheIntrepid  #Munnar  makes me think it is more rewarding to watch  #tea  grow than it is to drink it.

    2 weeks ago by IvanTheIntrepid After 7 glorious days we finally moved out of the hospital and into  #FortKochi . It's time for some R&R (rest and recuperation) and some exploring of this  #southernbelle . Who's been?
  • Well folks Im about to unplug! I will be sittinghellip
    5 days ago by IvanTheIntrepid Well folks I'm about to unplug! I will be sitting in a position very much like this one for about 12 hours a day for the next 10 days. I will also be taking an 'oath' of silence which means I will be unable to share my funny thoughts and ideas with those around me (poor them). 'What is all this about?' You ask. Well I will be doing a  #vipassana   #meditation  course of... course. This is the type of meditation that  #Buddha  himself practiced. Hopefully after 10 days of observing myself I will understand the universal truths of impermanence,…
