Live-aboard, sailing, diving and discovering wrecks with nitrogen narcosis

THAILAND | Monday, 25 Jun 2007 | Views [4527] | Comments [1]

Over 4 days on a 20m plus sailing boat, diving 3 or 4 times a day, to sites where maybe nobody else has dived ... I've just been down to 45m to dive a cargo wreck of a boat nicknamed the 'dog food' wreck.  So called because it was sank as part of an ... Read more >

I'm 20m under the sea, there are five, 2m long, grey reef sharks swimming within a few meters of me, and my instructor is trying to encourage them to come closer by making noises with a plastic bottle.  Noooooooo!  doesn't she realise sharks scare ... 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 >

I'm a criminal...it's a fact.  The padlock is proof.  I can't even claim it was because i was drunk...although I'd had a pint or 3 (yes real pints!).  I'd spent the evening in an Irish bar with 2 young German guys I'd met while diving and an English ... Read more >

Phuket Island and sailing

THAILAND | Tuesday, 15 May 2007 | Views [3153]

2 weeks in Phuket - a lot can happen in 2 weeks.  You could get rained on everyday, learn to sail, nearly crash a motorbike, run over a monitor lizard, get passage to Singapore by crewing on a sailboat, or have a pass made at you by a 59 year old, rich ... Read more >

It's 8am, I've been awake 24 hours and drinking for 15 hours.   I'm looking at a priceless view from a $200 a night room and a Thai girl who sells her time and body for money is pouring her heart out to me...                                                                    ... 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 >

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 >

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 >
