Departing [Mar. 9th, 2004|07:01 pm]

[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

Just getting ready to head back out into the Eastern European countryside, thought I'd see if Will had received the map, and see how everyting goes back home.

I'm not sure how long I'll be away this time, but I will attempt to check in every couple of weeks.

Oh, and the full moon that came and went last weekend brought me little problem. I made it through calmly, and only had a moment of worry sometime around midnight when the moon was full up. Looks like I am back on track.

Wow [Feb. 23rd, 2004|09:24 pm]

Um, ok... let's see... where have I been? Well honestly, when I got into Athens, and checked into the hostel, I had intended on finding a computer, but it didn't work out that way. I got so distracted by all of the amazing history and architecture and the local music that I lost all track of time. I guess it was about four and half weeks or so before I realized I hadn't posted or checked in on people.

By then though, I was already well outside of anything resembling technology. I've been bouncing around enjoying the local scenery. These views are amazing. I stumbled across what looks like some old stoney arches and things... thinking Will might be interested, I've marked about where it was at on my map so I can send it to her.

Totally missed the big Hallmark holiday, not that it was a big deal for me anyway... but I guess it was back home. Can I still call it home? Will need to check in and see if everything is back to normal yet.

More later as I will be staying here for a couple days to replenish supplies and make some extra money.

A New Year... [Jan. 2nd, 2004|11:23 am]
Daniel "Oz" Osbourne
And so it is oficially 2004. I guess I've spent so many years with the monks that I'm surprised. I mean "Wow! 2004"... uh anyway, I've got a plane ticket out of Sydney tonight. Minus a couple of layovers and refueling stops, I'll be in Athens the next time I write. From there, it'll be backpacking and wandering around Europe until I decide to go somewhere else.

I've been thinking though about spending sometime in the States. Maybe seeing Hawaii and the warmer areas... that could be my next adfventure.

Gosford... Wilderness... [Dec. 16th, 2003|11:16 pm]

Took some advice and rode the train from Sydney to Gosford. The scenery was cool, the company was more interesting. Seems there were a couple of locals riding to visit family. We had a lot of things in common, they were born like me though, not bitten. It was interesting, we knew each others' condition, and tlaked while on the train. Afterwards, they invited me to spend time with them, so I just kinda followed along. Got to see the local scene, not the touristy stuff, but the real Australian culture.

It was fun, felt nice to be accepted and not have to hide. Spent the 3 nights of the moon with them. They control themselves by different theories...

Well, I'm back in Sydney now, thinking I may spend Christmas here, and then travel to Europe.

Live from Sydney, Pt. II [Dec. 10th, 2003|02:51 pm]
Daniel "Oz" Osbourne
Did The Bridge Climb it was a cool view of the almost the entire area. Might have to go up at dawn, seems I have a new appreciation for nature what with spending so much time immersed in it in Tibet.

Willow Winters in Tibet - too much snow, and blowing winds... following summer around the world sounds better everytime I think of it.

[music |Santana - Smooth]

Arrived in Sydney last night. Traversing the "Outback" was tough, but I did see dingoes.

Will be here for awhile, hopefully giving me a chance to get caught up with everyone.

Miss Cat, had to leave him with monks, because of international travel regulations.

Destination: New Delhi, India [Oct. 13th, 2003|05:50 pm]

[music |Sting - Send Your Love]

Greetings and salutations from a very temperate New Dehli!

Got a bit held up getting out of Nepal thanks to something called SARS. All good, though. Learned how to macrame while in Kathmandu.

Am now in New Delhi, India. Is v. smoky here. Nose has been going crazy. (Big drawback to having wolf senses.) Will be leaving soon, as wearing surgical mask in public feels too Michael Jackson.

Avoiding Middle East as things don't seem to be going well there. Am considering Europe via Australia.

[mood |cheerfulcheerful]

Left Tibet behind last week. Am feeling good about getting back out into the so-called civilizaed world. Learned a lot from Cho Pan. Plan on keeping in touch.

Have missed cable TV and music involving electric guitar feedback. Robes were kind of comfy, though.

First stop - Kathmandu. Plan on walking the earth... like that guy in Kung-Fu. Or Pulp Fiction. Also, monks not exactly "in the money". Don't really mind, though. Exercise is good.

It looks like Sunnydale... [Apr. 24th, 2003|02:03 pm]
Daniel "Oz" Osbourne
Got in late the other night. Customs did a search. Something about people with only backpacks coming from the east. Those guys seem tense.

Swung into the Bronze for a bit, said hello to Xander. Shared a moment of confusion. There was talk of orgasmic pirates.

Witches. Crazy.

I don't look like Giles anymore.

Huh.
