traveling with jani
of my many obsessions include traveling and writing. And now,
to the Net, you're about to be subjected to the end result of combining
the two: that's right, you've found my travel diary section.
These days, I prefer to make others pay for my bandwidth, so
my later adventures are all hosted on Wikitravel Extra.
