The End: A Time For Reckoning

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 17 Jul 2008 | Views [2500] | Comments [8]

No toilet too dirty, no room too squalid, no food too weird and no insect too big...even when it's in my food.  What an amazing diversity of landscapes - mountains stretching into the clouds, castaway island beaches, crystal clear blue seas, humid overgrown ... Read more >

The End Of Nicaragua?

NICARAGUA | Thursday, 10 Apr 2008 | Views [1831] | Comments [1]

"Some things change" (my plans), "and some things do not" (my lack of time).  It's a strange series of events that sees me not staying in Nicaragua any longer - as I'd envisaged doing.  Due to a mix of timings, border crossings, costs, ... Read more >

Honolulu City Lights

USA | Tuesday, 26 Feb 2008 | Views [1089]

How do you spend your last few days in a place that has become like a second home?  You are aware that soon you´ll be in dorms again, sharing your personal space with strangers, that you´ll become a master toilet inspector and a connoisseur of bad smells.... Read more >

That's all for New Zealand

NEW ZEALAND | Friday, 1 Feb 2008 | Views [1342] | Comments [1]

Perhaps more than any other country, New Zealand was the one i wanted to visit.  Yet for all its beauty and dramatic landscapes I've been ready to leave here for a couple of weeks. NZ caters for the backpackers incredibly well - travel, bookings and ... Read more >

Goodbye Stewart

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 17 Jan 2008 | Views [995]

It's strange to be back on the road again.  Stewart island has been my 'home' for nearly 4 weeks and it's been a year since I've stopped in one place for that long.  Adjustment and fitting in become middle names when travelling for so long though. My ... Read more >

How was the serenity?

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 7 Nov 2007 | Views [898]

Time has just flown eh, with barely enough time to get a stubby from the eskie, put another prawn on the barbie or run for the now needed dunny.  Over 10 weeks have been skied, trekked, drunk, dived and toured away -and I've barley scratched the surface ... Read more >

Adios Asia

INDONESIA | Monday, 27 Aug 2007 | Views [1101] | Comments [1]

I've been nearly 8 months in Asia, and yet I've barely scratched the surface.  This tiger has left deep impressions on my mind and soul.  Dragged over many a culture shock inducing bump, I think I've gradually learnt to tame the animal (editor: OK enough!)  ... Read more >

Goodbye Malaysia

MALAYSIA | Wednesday, 8 Aug 2007 | Views [1825]

KFC's on every corner, palm tree plantations as far as the eye can see, being only set-up for the tour loving, money spending tourist. Or, world class diving, beautiful islands and wildlife parks that I've only dreamt about.  Like all places there are ... Read more >

Goodbye Thailand

THAILAND | Wednesday, 27 Jun 2007 | Views [1273] | Comments [1]

It's fair to say I don't want to leave this country.  I've spent more time in Thailand (around10 weeks) than any other on my journey so far, and there's still a lot of it I haven't seen and would like to visit. How do you summarise a country that's ... Read more >

Vientiane and the end of Laos

LAOS | Saturday, 28 Apr 2007 | Views [1445] | Comments [1]

The capital of Laos and a place to bore me with a capital B.  The most 'exciting' part of my travels was getting to Vientiane.  On the way to the airport there had been a bad motorbike crash.  A young, very bloody guy, was being propped up on the side ... Read more >

Good Bye Vietnam

VIETNAM | Saturday, 21 Apr 2007 | Views [4246] | Comments [1]

Wow what a country.  Another one steeped in history and conflict, war is still raging - but it's the ever growing war of communism versus capitalism.  I accept the fact that i will never get used to it; I'm always the wallet, always the one the moto ... Read more >

The end of Cambodia

CAMBODIA | Monday, 12 Mar 2007 | Views [1138] | Comments [2]

So it's been a month, I've seen Angkor Wat - number one on my list for SE Asia and I've learned to dive - one of the many things on my list of things to do before i die (sad i know to have a list).  I have this feeling i will never be back to Cambodia, ... Read more >
