Whakapapa : Whakayeah.

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 30 Jun 2012 | Views [268]

The following story has been the result of too much happening too quickly to justify using just a lame status update. Instead, I've really got to explain all of what happened on the 30th June 2012 with a touch of detail. As most are aware, I love ... Read more >

A dash through Vietnam

VIETNAM | Thursday, 15 Mar 2012 | Views [262]

In the socialist republic of Vietnam, facebook is blocked. Yes, socialist may be in the title, but it was still a slightly communist Vietnam that greeted us. And in the Northern capital of Hanoi, there was no doubt who won the war. But Vietnam is more ... Read more >

A few words on Singapore

SINGAPORE | Thursday, 15 Mar 2012 | Views [247]

Having only spent a day or two in Singapore, I can't say I really got a real feel for the place, more like a quick grope. Initially the place concerned me. It appeared that Singapore was trying to its best to behave like a 14 year old girl. Endless ... Read more >

CAMBODIA | Monday, 27 Feb 2012 | Views [274]

Cambodia, it will bring a tear to your eye. Maybe cause I bit into an inconspicuous chilli, or perhaps its the horrific details of the genocide the country suffered, or the still visible exploitation of young children, but the country will drive itself ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 13 Aug 2011 | Views [233]

Do touch the animals: The native fauna of Australia is the most bizarre in the world. Egg laying milk feeding poisonous warm blooded marsupials, yep we got them. If you want to see a kangaroo, then do you want to see a little fella ... Read more >

The Impossible

FRANCE | Thursday, 14 Oct 2010 | Views [215] | Comments [1]

To summarise the 5 weeks of our return from Vancouver to Auckland is like reading the blurb of a good book and saying that's that. So here's my blurb. Actually, a blurb may not be necessary, 3 words is all I need. New. York. City. Arrival into NYC ... Read more >

A night out on the town.

In the inspiring city of Montreal, Shona and I had the pleasure of a fancy dinner at The Fairmont Hotel. We had the cash to splash (well actually a gift card) but our wardrobe selection was a limited affair. Sadly, the tie and jacket recommendation ... Read more >


No more camping.

USA | Wednesday, 13 Oct 2010 | Views [205] | Comments [2]

Thought I better finish the camping adventure story, now that I've started to heal the mental wounds that only living in a tent for 5 weeks can make. After the Rockies, our final "big destination" was Yellowstone National Park. This was, ... Read more >

CANADA | Saturday, 11 Sep 2010 | Views [198]

“ How were the Rockies? ” and with a deep breath, some awkward facial expresssions and hand gestures I do my best to say something nice. For you se as we head out of Canada, we've clocked up over 5000km of driving and seen so, so much. There was ... Read more >
