Sorry didn't realise this was in 99. Was too busy laughing my head off visualising Sam's reaction to the spanish girl's offer!

Thank you. I'm a little surprised because normally you guys like my pictorial blogs. That's why I never wrote this one.

Man, maybe someday I'll have the courage to write. Then 50 Team-BHPians will buy my book and that's that. lol.

Thanks for the lovely words. Believe it or not, this story has still more exciting twists.

I'll write tomorrow.

Sam, I'm not sure whether you know or not, you write very well and reading your blogs gives the feeling of being there and it's kinda watching the scenes passed by,like in a movie. I dunno how much success your book will get but surely your blogs are a super-hit here.Waiting for the next part eagerly..

Man!! This is what I call storytelling...it's made my imagination run wild. I'm not just reading this hilariously intense and thrilling story, but also seeing it like someones placed those micro-television screens in front of my eyes!
Keep it up dude. I'm waiting for the latter bits.

Sam, Ive never posted on your so called stories which suddenly are popping up in every section -- But today I can't resist saying that you are a COMPLETE WASTE . .

I fail to understand what you doing selling baaja ( music ) equipment whereas you could be utilizing that time travelling through some new destination taking photographs and writing stories which in turn would sell well for you to continue travelling and writing more .

Marry the woman .. travel ... write ...

Oh she'll be along shortly I am sure.
She likes to read my stories. One of the reasons she kind of likes me at all actually.

Saazid,

For someone who doesn't say much in the first place, you've pretty much said it all. I know this thread is probably not the place for this OT discussion, but I don't have the courage to do this. Not yet.

I am in a very successful position in life. Selling JBL ka Baajas, lol. It will take a lot of courage to give up a successful professional life and live a dream. I do not have it YET, but I suspect one day it will.

Don't forget that many of my travels and abilities to travel come from my job. Many travelogues are written while JBL pays for my ticket. Take Budapest and the South of France, for example.
Also, staying in exotic locations needs finances man, lol.

Ironic that I'm the one who runs around trying to spread the YetiLife®, but I don't have the courage to follow my dream just yet.

But I will. I will. And till then I will travel, write and live the Yetilife with TheOne®.

Who knows, maybe someday you guys will talk of the unknown almost-a-writer you knew. Hey, I knew him, he was almost-a-writer!

Next installment coming up in a while.
