How could someone, traveling in a foreign land, find so much time to be buried in some matters other than exploring the place? I mean, in all my travel experience, I can say that days are short and time is fast. And there’s a whole lot of things to see so you got to be ALWAYS on the move. In Robert Alejandro’s case, he must have blown a huge portion of his travel time sitting, making sketches.
The book, The Sketching Backpacker, is about his 3-month circumnavigation of Southeast Asia and portions of China. Complete with stories of inexpensive tour across nine countries, matter-of-fact travel tips and, unbelievably — sketches. You see, Robert Alejandro is another differently striped voyager, he prefers traveling with a sketching pad and some gel pens instead of DSLR or compact camera.
Let me leave you now with a peek at some of the book’s interesting pages. Gotta run. Timeisfast.
