I can't draw (seriously, my stick figures are laughable), but thank goodness the world has people like the talented +Candace Rardon, who can artfully create illustrated guides to the history of yurts. Great, colourful post.
I hope you'll enjoy this illustrated history of yurts, looking at where exactly they come from and just how long they've been around.

Somehow I am on the front page of the BBC.com website for a piece I wrote about how I quit my job to travel (the process, budgeting and inspiration). Thrilled to see so many people found it resonated with their own plans.
When people hear how I quit my job as a lawyer after six years of corporate work, they assume I burned out and fled the nine-to-five (or, more accurately, the nine-to-midnight), leaving contracts, negotiations and lawsuits behind.

Incredible story, wonderful photos. What a project -- no wonder the photographer sounds like he is in complete awe. I feel that way and I'm reading words on a page, not seeing this unfold in front of me in person.

Story
Tagline
Former lawyer currently eating my way around the world, one bowl of soup at a time.
Introduction

Originally from Montreal, I quit my job as a lawyer to travel for what I thought was a year, and more than five years later I find myself working as a full-time food and travel writer and photographer. All of the writing recently culminated in my first book, the Food Traveler’s Handbook. Since I left my job in early 2008, I've been writing about my worldwide travel, transportation misadventures and delicious food on my site, Legal Nomads.  I get the shakes when I go too long without eating sticky rice.
