In December of 2008, I packed my bags and boarded a plane to a place both familiar and unfamiliar – Hong Kong. What was supposed to be a three month backpacking trip turned into over seven years, and counting, of living and traveling around Asia and beyond. What I write here is a record of the various travel itches that I’ve satisfied since that fateful backpacking trip, and a periodically-updated narrative on where Ernie goes.
