Copán Ruinas

HONDURAS | Monday, 21 Apr 2008 | Views [1815] | Comments [1]

It just keeps happening - yet again it's because I don't have a printout of my electronic ticket.  It's with calm bemusement and true English sarcasm that flies over heads that I explain why I haven't printed out my electronic ticket.  A passport, a ... Read more >

All to pick up a parcel, one I've spent over 4 months waiting for.  It turns out it's already on its way back to England - thank you parcelforce. Life is spent sorting out where to go next, watching films and experiencing the world of Kao San Road.  ... Read more >

Into North Laos - Luang Prabang

LAOS | Friday, 27 Apr 2007 | Views [1513]

You know that's it's been a rough plane journey when the 2 girls on your aisle both throw up.  I for one thought it was a great journey. After the consumerist rash of Vietnam, Laos spreads over me with welcome cool relief.  Wide 'boulevard' roads, light ... Read more >

Darren and i take the bus to Hue, it's very unusual as it's a big bus with no more than a dozen people on it and no chickens...very strange.  it stops at marble mountains just outside of Hoi An, I'm glad we didn't visit them.  100's of hawkers really ... Read more >

Danang, Hoi An and My Son Ruins

VIETNAM | Friday, 23 Mar 2007 | Views [2010]

It's an hours flight - passed by reading the biography of Pol Pot. Who says i don't know how to enjoy myself.  The taxi drivers at the airport try to rip us off - i lose a pen and a bottle of water in the fight, well, from leaving them in the taxi.  ... Read more >

THAILAND | Friday, 26 Jan 2007 | Views [947]

A world heritage sight, a town i can pronounce the name of on my second attempt, and a 15 baht train journey that also only takes me two attempts to get a ticket for - it all sounds good...and it was.  This is a bit of a backpackers paradise - teak guest ... Read more >
