About the author

Steve Fisher is an entrepreneur and avid traveler based in Bangkok, Thailand. The name of this blog comes from the first paragraph of Narrow Road to the Deep North by the Japanese poet Matsuo Bashō:

The moon and sun are eternal travelers. Even the years wander on. A lifetime adrift in a boat, or in old age leading a tired horse into the years, every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home. From the earliest times there have always been some who perished along the road. Still I have always been drawn by wind-blown clouds into dreams of a lifetime of wandering.
