Vagabond -- Part2

After reading Vagabonding by Rolf Potts, made me wonder about life and what I am doing with it.!

Recently I was tracking Matt Harding, 31 yr American who decided to travel around the world. I envy folks like him. Two things that caught my attention, which wanted to share with you today:

Where the Hell is Matt? is 4mins dancing video. and what’s more interesting is- background score incidentally is in Bengali and is an adaptation from the poem “Stream of Life” from Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore and it has been sung by Palbasha Siddiqui, a 17 year old second generation Bengali of Bangladeshi origin from Minneapolis in the US. (More @Palbasha Siddique is up there with Madonna and Mariah). Its awesome don’t miss it.

and if travel is your interest and like me, you always blamed money or time-- Matt's Interview:

It's somehow not very Asian to take a year or two off from work & travel around the world. One hears of so many Americans/ Europeans who do that. But Asian folk I guess take family, security, careers, etc too seriously to be able to just walk away from it one fine day without knowing what they'll do once they're back.
