July Urban Camping Spots

I've finished my second nomadic urban camping trip. Over the course of 12 months (and 3 weeks), I stayed in 30 places: my artist's studio, houses of friends, and an airplane.

July's urban camping spots were as follows:
  • My friends, Maggie and Steven, invited me to stay at their house for 10 days.

  • I stayed one night at the house of my friend Tricia, whom I met when we were 5-years-old.

  • I stayed 15 nights at my parents' house.

  • And I stayed 5 nights at my sister Lisa's house, the house where five generations of my family have lived.
Well, I've used up all of my travel-sized products. I've given all the house-keys back to my friends. I'm headed back to the base.

For awhile I'm going to use massive bath towels, establish daily rituals for waking up, and plan dinner parties for 10.

I might design a fourth iteration of the nomad pack. I might go nomadic again. I might come back to this spot and pick up my story where I left off.

In the meantime, I hope you'll look me up on CouchSurfing.com. Drop by. Stay for dinner. Swap stories. I want to know about the people and places you've seen.

Or leave part of your life on WhyWaitForFame.com. I like biographies. You don't have to be famous to have an interesting story. I hope to read about you there.

Wishing you a delightful mix of care and chaos,

Is this blog dead? I pretty much read everything you wrote all year, and now there's nothing more to read. Why don't you just start another blog--with whatever theme you want--and I'll continue to be one your fans.

The couchsurfers have started arriving!

So far, travellers going through Rotterdam have either come from or are going to London via the ferry. Or, they are taking the train to or from Brussels.

Iian (from Australia) had been driving around Europe for 2 months in his big van.

Lana (from New Zealand) has been working in England and then travelling over to see different parts of Europe before going back to make more money in England.

Steve (from Canada) has been traveling for 3 years! The day he arrived he said, "Last night I slept at Stonehenge."
