Welcome to 'Travels with my Angst'. It's a place to learn a little something about the kind of individual who would choose to live overseas. What kind of demented loon(are there sane loons?) would choose to teach for a living? Perhaps you've come here to learn. Perhaps you're curious. Perhaps you can't sleep. Welcome.

Slouched into Indonesia in early 1999 intent on committing journalism. Fell in love with the country and a special someone. The Stockholm Syndrome has truly set in and I'm a willing, complicit hostage to this great country, with a wife and grinchlet twins (2010).
