I'm Jon from Calgary. I travel off the beaten path (which really means that I take a lonely planet guide and mostly avoid their suggestions). My general lack of travel planning have led to various fun filled adventures. Just picture finding a deserted white sand beach, perfect swells, warm water, and for 5 consecutive days perfect surfing. Then on the off hand, picture getting kicked out of a Panama bus in the dead of night with nothing but rain forest around you (pretty sure there was a horror movie that started like this).
When I am in Calgary I handle the books for a major engineering project, which I find very rewarding and some how keeps my interests. In my spare time I like to learn and experience new things; right now I'm finishing a professional designation, and trying to keep up with Japanese and fitness. I must be the only person who reviews and highlights articles while on a stationary bike.
