AWOL with Cloud Cult & Mason Proper

We’re on tour at the moment so most of our updates are at exitclov.com.

We were checking into our flight and the Dominican ticket guy behind the counter asks us for our passports. Sven hands him his German passport, I give him my U.S. passport.

We caught up on quite a bit of chill-axing, swimming, sweating in the sauna, eating and then some more chill-axing (actually I had to explain to him what ‘chill-ax’ means…sigh, europeans).
