Ever wished you left it all behind and hit the road?

Ever wondered what it would be like to buy a clunker, sleep in it, live in it, while discovering a country (the United States), a continent and its people ?

Ever felt like wandering for a year across Asia, including Japan, China, South East Asia and all the way to India?

Welcome to ooaworld, featuring multimedia content from ooa revo‘s travels including photos, film, videos, writing, art and more.

The main film / documentary project will feature interviews of the very different people I’ve met along the way, with one common question: “What’s your philosophy in life?” (Watch the ooAmerica trailer below).

ooaworld currently features several projects / world regions (pins are navigable, circle markers are yet uncharted or unpublished, yellow pins take you to a regional homepage):

- ooAmerica: ooa’s 2011-2012 USA Road Trip, 25,000 miles through 44 states, spending about 10 months on the road living in a car.

- ooAsia: ooa’s 2013 Asia trip, from Japan to India, through China and Southeast Asia. In addition to pursuing the “What’s your philosophy in life?” documentary, I’m also asking people along the road to “Tell me a Story.”

- There are plans for future travels including Eurooa, ooAmerica (South), ooAfrica and ooceania!

 

The aims are, on paper, relatively simple: promote open exchange of ideas between people of all tides, as well as tolerance and peaceful thinking.

Another project is a series of large photo-montages, in a (crazy) attempt to capture the diversity, beauty and deep feeling of different countries and world regions, as a whole: the feel of the countries, their scenery, culture, and folklore. In one word: their pulp.

 

Readers seeking practical and / or specific travel information may also be interested in ooaworld’s twin site, Rolling Coconut, which features travel reviews of the places visited during our year-long journey through Asia. Content includes photos, maps, itineraries, names of hotels and where to stay, recommendations on food and places to eat, ideas for activities and visits, as well as helpful travel tips and local insight.

Rolling Coconut was created and is edited by my dearest, coconutwp, and features some of her beautiful photography. I hope to also contribute photos (for example photos of monuments and sites which I don’t typically include here) to travel reviews, summaries of which are also posted on ooaworld.

 

Readers and friends are welcome to contribute in any way. Thanks for your support!

I hope to eventually post more about the photographic approach, and, more generally speaking, the approach to these journeys.

    As a new Spikey, you’ve joined a growing clan of folk known to be followers of Uncle Spike :)

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures since the 70′s, as well as day to day happenings on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it. Of course, if you have any suggestions for me, I’d love to hear from you, serious; email me.

    In return, I promise not to be overbearing with perhaps 2-3 posts a day tops. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again for your vote of confidence, hope you have a great day…
