Glass Wheels Paper Wings is about comfortable adventure and an unstreamlined world. And there is nothing more fun than planned but open-minded, big pictured but detailed-oriented, light-weight travel.
Enjoy my anecdotes and if you have had better (or worse) luck, please share. We all want to know what’s out there…and remember: *Not all who wander are lost*.
