Here on my blog, I have started to get some feedback as to the recommendations for what I do in those “down times” of travel. So when I find myself on a 13-hour plane ride, and nothing out the window creates enough of a canvas on which to paint my wandering thoughts, I generally turn to books (or audio books on the trusty iPod). So, in the effort of promoting great reads, I will be introducing a new section to the blog: Weekly Author Spotlights. I will be reading, discussing and posting videos about the books I have read throughout my travels.
Okay, so by this point you’ve probably realized that I have made good on my promise to use more video in my blog. But I don’t want to overdo it. So in an effort to ease the video onslaught of late, I have been actively editing lots of text blogs and photos to bring back in. But there’s lots more going on than just that. Read below:
Other important updates: After months of filming for the upcoming film, Travel Geek: Documentary Taiwan, I have finally been able to set aside some time to get the much needed edits done to the the Philippines gallery of photos. So it might be the end of the week before I am able to get this album published, but it should be up at least by the end of the week.
And speaking of the Philippines; I have edited the first of my journals from this latest trip and will be following this post with the first of what will likely turn out to be about ten pages of amazing reflection from Southeast Asia’s black sheep. So thanks for sticking with me throughout all the years of posting, and up next is my latest journals from the Philippines. I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted any actual travel journals. But I have been working on releasing (not one, but) TWO books which should be out soon. I have been editing heaps of video. And I have also been compounding more filming on top of that. So I have been a busy boy.
The gallery of photography from the Philippines will be hosted at cyleodonnell.com. You can reach the page directly by clicking HERE. And new Travel Geek short films are coming out all the time. Just subscribe to my Youtube Channel to receive all the new shorts that I post.
Also, I am getting new subscribers all the time, so I know that some of you have been talking about the page. THANK YOU! I really appreciate the support. But if you could do me one more favor, I’d really appreciate it. Please email one or more of my email updates to at least ten friends in your email contacts list and ask them to subscribe.
