I have been on hundreds of public buses in countries around the world. This crazy bus ride in Sri Lanka is my all-time worst bus ride. Worst. Terrible. Scary. Stupid. Crappy. Bus.
My 50th Country is Kyrgyzstan. I love it here! Congratulations to Bridget Szanti Kramer for winning the contest. Read on to hear the final results and some goofy contest entries.
A quick 12-day tour of China’s 4 largest cities, and reunions with 4 dear old friends along the way. Horse trekking in northern Mongolia along the Russian Border near Khovsgol Nuur Lake. Amazing scenery and wilderness. And crazy drunk people. You gotta love Mongolia!
‘The most efficient way to introduce freedom into a repressed society is through dance’ – Karl Marx. I just made that quote up, but Burma will never be the same after my night of pure wizardry and dance. Yeah, right. Anyway, we all had fun and no one got hurt. Burma rocks!
Hanoi – #1 City. Great People. Cheap Food. Cheap Beer. No Health Codes. Total Chaos. Nicolas Cage Still Stinks.
Hello My Friends,
My name is Lex. I'm on a Lexpedition. Truthfully, I am The Lexpedition.
In March 2012 I wrapped up my 3rd long-term travel adventure (aka The Lexpedition 3.0).
I spent 448 days hopping around the globe, mostly in Asia and Europe. I visited a total of 43 countries (32 for the first time), took 34 plane flights, met bus-loads of amazing people, and drank 73,000,000,000 pots of coffee.
While I have great friends, an amazing family, and 8 sweet nieces and nephews, all I really want to do is travel, explore and have a blast.
I plan to buy some new socks and underwear and hit the road again as soon as I can finish my book and scrounge up enough money for The Lexpedition 4.0.
My Mission... To enjoy myself while traveling around the ENTIRE world on a completely disorganized (yet entirely passionate) adventure... to drink boat-loads of coffee, meet new friends, enjoy amazing natural beauty, and be really nice to people... and make them laugh.
I will do my best to keep this website updated with stories, pictures and videos of my adventures. This website is a work in progress. Thanks in advance for your patience and support.
'Start bravely and do not fear the end!'
Thank you and good luck!
