Lost Boy Digital Backpacker:
Stories and images
by Jim Waldron
I was 38, unmarried, childless, debtless, and "between careers." What better time to escape the regular world and see the rest. This around-the-world trip, also deemed, "Stickman's Global Bride Search" by my good friends, commenced on November 25, 1997, and continued for a year or so. 

Along the road I carried an Agfa ePhoto 1280 digital camera and an Apple Newton to record interesting things along the way. Mostly I griped, but now and then I found myself in some unexpected, highly-cultural situations. 


Stories

The stories break down into three major types 
and you can find them on each country's page: 

Travel thoughts from a cynic
Seventeen hours through the desert, shopping in Hell, wakeup calls from uniformed men, not always that fun.

Art and Design along the way
From Painting Theives, to homeboy Boat designers, some cool stuff 

Technology of digital backpacking
I've got 18 pounds of gadgets, way too heavy. Find out my history and how I use them in this interview from How magazine
 


Photographs

Everywhere I go, I make photographs with my Agfa ePhoto 1280 digital camera supplied by my sponsor. I download the photos into anyone's computer who allows me, and they end up here. Most of the photographs are between 50k and 250k, so their loadtime varies. I've put some of my favorites at the head of each country page.

Still Going
Because I'm constantly moving, and the quality of Internet cafe's variesgreatly from country to country, I'll update this site when possible, and because I'm a very vain man, will do my best to keep it up to date.
