Slowly,MoreAfter selling a business and quitting a job boyfriend and girlfriend Kevin Fleming and Stacie Wilkening do the trip we all dream about. With open hearts and minds they left the comfort of their life in San Francisco to see the world.

Slowly, inevitably they learn more about the human condition, each other and their selves.Trying to test the efficacy of their inoculations they stayed close to the land. They vibrated overland from France to Indonesia letting the adventure unfold from places as far flung and diverse at the postwar Balkans, pre-European Union Eastern Europe, the burgeoning Baltics, intoxicating and intoxicated Russia, a goat milk-glutted Mongolia, to China in the grips of SARS.

They refreshed our overextended psyches tramping in New Zealand and diving into urban life Down Under. They emerged from the crumbling Kingdom of Nepal and the mind bender that is ancient India with an altered definition of reality.Equal parts respect, whimsy and awe, Kevin and Stacie confronted the realities of the world, as expressed through economics, art, religion, cuisine, war, pop culture, ecology, nationalism, and unique characters.

Stacie’s lens is focused using honesty, sincerity reflecting her journalism background, and compliment symbiotically Kevin’s self-depreciating, often hilarious prose, reflecting years of searching and curiosity itching.Traveling for this duo is a way to dissolve biases.

Readers experience similar erosion of misconceptions, without the night busses, paranoia and diarrhea.Think world travel is the domain of the trust fund and jet set? Kevin and Stacie prove all you need is the will and imagination. Together they create a full, satisfying and unique picture of a world full of wonder.Stacie on the Temples of Angkor, Cambodia:Siem Reap, Cambodia – The dark streets of Siem Reap were surprisingly alive at 4:45 a.m. as we peddled our rusty, Pee Wee Herman bikes to the glorious Temples of Angkor, just north of town.

We arrived to see the skies lighten over the majestic Angkor Wat temple, the crown jewel of the Temples of Angkor. We spent the day peddling from temple to temple, each one vividly different from the next. Stone faces smiling through time....Kevin on India:Varanasi, India – Though you want to turn India down, you never want to turn it off. You can never get used to the filth and poverty and how unfair it all is, but once you get beyond it, you notice an ancient hum, a buzz, a chant, a song, and a dance.

India is a smack and a hug, perfume and a fart, whisper and a shout. I love it and hate it....
