I wrote an article on my blog about the situation with Paul who is stuck in Cambodia. You can read it here: Altogether we raised about $800, which is enough to get him out of there. Thanks a lot to everyone who was willing to donate. I addressed some of the concerns people had about whether or not Paul was to be trusted, so please read the article before making any comments.

The nice thing about these videos is that they not only show me where I want to go, but also where I don't. Sorry, Finland!

The trains would be half the price if you booked a saver ticket in advance.

You're a hard man Gabriel.
That place looks freezing cold.
You wouldn't want your car to break down in the middle of nowhere.
