Trip: Going somewhere

There are [40] stories from my trip: Going somewhere


Drawing the curtains on Cambodia.

CAMBODIA | Friday, 23 Mar 2007 | Views [1095]

Did our change of location in Sihanoukville, result in an improvement in my feelings towards the place? Yes and no. The Green Gecko was definitely a better place to hang out, do our best to imitate people who can play billiards, and eat omelette rolls ... Read more >

Who can stand the heat of Hades?

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 21 Mar 2007 | Views [1086]

What is going on? Is there a worldwide shortage of material at present; especially here in Sihanoukville, at Satan’s' fashion show of truly diabolical swimming garments. That wouldn't explain why the Cambodians, some of the poorest people in the world, ... Read more >

Satans summer range of swim wear.

Sihanoukville has been exposed! No other place has seen such an astronomical increase in everything undesirable, and I aim to expose as much as has been exposed to me. Exposed as naive were my claims that Sihanoukville would enjoy controlled and responsible ... Read more >

What love can make us do!

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 11 Mar 2007 | Views [1188]

Capital cities are always a mixed blessing. Everything you need, is there for a price. But so are a lot of things you don't need. Like pollution. Like extreme destitution. Like roads totally devoid of order. My God, is it only the Westerners that have ... Read more >

A few buses too many.

CAMBODIA | Friday, 9 Mar 2007 | Views [4822] | Comments [2]

29 hours. 3 buses. 1 border crossing. 2 missed meals. 11 lady finger bananas eaten. 600 baht saved. 1 sore, sleepless and shitty traveler. Again the open road beguiled me, and rewarded my love of its exciting unpredictability with another ass pounding ... Read more >

And so the cycle of solo and social travel comes full circle again. Steph returned home to weather colder than any beer I have drunk. And the weather here in Bangkok is colder than any beer drunk in the UK, according to everyone in the world but Steph.... Read more >

Nothing left to say but goodbye!

THAILAND | Monday, 5 Mar 2007 | Views [1575]

I have said good bye to Steph for now, but not forever, and broke my heart in the process; AGAIN. It's interesting how quickly you can get accustomed to constant companionship, and then even quicker, you seem to find yourself alone and pining for their ... Read more >

Crash landing in a paranoid universe.

THAILAND | Friday, 2 Mar 2007 | Views [1988]

This post is written for those previously unaware of the looseness with which I employ the facts. I wanted to demonstrate that some of my stories have been mildly garnished with some fictional parsley. A request for garlic did not result in a marriage ... Read more >

For those adverse to vivid descriptions of drug intake and the resulting zaniness, (I'm looking straight at you Mum; and you're in the corner of my eye too Santa!) this is not the post for you. And don't get me wrong, I am not advocating the use of ... Read more >

Everything about my time on Ko AllGood is unfolding like the dream in paradise that we all entertain. Having been commissioned by Steph for a painting once this trip was over, all financial concerns were put aside to enjoy the style of holiday that ... Read more >

Makes it ALL worthwhile!

THAILAND | Saturday, 24 Feb 2007 | Views [1122] | Comments [2]

Ignoring past lessons, an activity I had turned into an art form, Steph and I booked a ticket to Ko Tao through one of the always smiling, mostly deceptive Khao San Road travel agents. Not only were my knees up my nose the whole trip, the seat ... Read more >

Goodbye Laos; hello stomach bug.

LAOS | Thursday, 22 Feb 2007 | Views [2527] | Comments [3]

Who knows how long I spent at Don Det but it was over a lot quicker than I wanted. 5 minutes, 5 days, 5 years, who knows? I have aged a bit, but that has more to do with yet another bout of paleness. Perhaps a large intake of Mekong water infused my ... Read more >

Don Det, the place time never found, let alone had the chance to forget. All my muscles atrophied; except for those responsible for passing tasty and / or intoxicating objects to my mouth. Only coffee kept my metabolism going and the paint stripper ... Read more >

Oh beautiful Vang Vieng! How sorry I was to leave your warm hazy embrace. Again you have become the highlight of the holiday and forced me to declare it to be the best place in South East Asia. And to have to leave you after one short week. Can my memory ... Read more >

On the third day we chose to partake in Vang Viengs most popular past time and go tubing, ie. floating down the river in an inflated car tube. Having done it before I readily agreed to making it a Happy trip as four hours with a wet bum gets a bit much ... Read more >

NEWSFLASH! Harry undertakes activities more strenuous than scratching his ass and as a result, has a week full of adventures to tell of. 7 days passed in the blink of an eye and only after leaving Vang Vieng could I find the time to put fingers to keyboard;... Read more >

The powerless are precious. For tthose who do not understand, no proof is possible, for those enlightened souls, no proof is necessary. Thought for the day, think about it! And so I've returned to the place of my dreams. My favourite place from my ... Read more >

Luang Prabang, the World Heritage listed city of temples. It once contained 66 operating wats, now pleasing itself with half that number. Having once seen a few wats and marvelling at their amazing similarity, I decided to forgo visiting another 30 ... Read more >

Time for movement. We were leaving Chiang Mai, and Thailand, even though all of us were still praying for a different sort of movement. No big changes loomed ahead though, as Laos is very closely related to Thailand. Laos is still quite unique though, ... Read more >

So fourth time in Chiang Mai! What to do other than buy more worthless shit. I made the most of my time alone when Gemma & Adam visited Pai. If making the most of your time can also be read as doing bugger all. I visited a nice park and gave my ... Read more >
