Chronicles

Traveling comes with tales. Be it a tale of a cultural experience, an adventure, misadventure or otherwise, travel enough and there will surely be tales to tell. Different regions of the world simply do things differently, whether it be the use of certain gestures, application and meaning of the very the same word in another region, or a number of other things. All discoveries and experiences can result in an interesting tale to tell. Yet, in some cases, it is not the location, the destination, culture, monument or otherwise that holds the story. It very well may be that there is something of a universal interest worth telling, like that of a commendable action taken by someone. Maybe it is an interesting stranger, a kind, generous person or an observation of people, animals, or nature that warrants a story within itself, irrespective of location. And then, any one of the above, a nice day, sunrise, sunset, smell of a mountain meadow, walk through a poppy field or any number of other influences might spark a period of reflection.

While certain posts do combine well with location, others simply do not need to. For those which do not aptly apply only to a regional category,  we have created this category: A compilation of travel related chronicles, which may include writings of mishaps, thoughts or anything else. Posts generated from a life of traveling the world, however not necessarily categorized geographically within Travels With Miha.

Curious about the shape of my head and excited ...

There was a flight combination that worked well for me, going to New York City then flying out the following day, which would allow me to spend an evening with some friends and family. The next day flight was with the Russian airline, Aeroflot, throug...

    Today I met some special people. Thank you Universal Power! I had the best experience and I am grateful to you! You are awesome! Lands of sunflowers in the dawn’s sunlight are left behind in a fluid wind like rush of a Romanian train called “The Blue Arrow”. I am on the road again, on my per...
  • Bocas del Toro: Michael 1997

    Semana Santa, 1997. Holy week. I rolled into dusty little Sixaola at Costa Rica's southeastern border with Panama Wednesday afternoon on what I had known to be one but turned out to be two flat tires. Having already replaced one, roadside, with the only spare a couple of hours back, this chalked up ...
