Hue

VIETNAM | Thursday, 29 Mar 2007 | Views [1157] | Comments [1]

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 [1981]

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 >

Buon Me Thout and Yok Don national park

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 20 Mar 2007 | Views [3103] | Comments [1]

We have it all on a plate.  For $101 for the 3 of us we can have a guide, rent motorbikes, go trekking for 2 days and sleep in a bungalow.  That's too expensive...so we rent bikes and head off to the park ourselves.  Dagrun has our bags strapped to the ... Read more >

Dalat

VIETNAM | Monday, 19 Mar 2007 | Views [5025] | Comments [2]

On the journey To Dalat we meet two Norwegian girls, who are travelling for a bit while they study in Vietnam. It's supposed to be a 7 hour journey but takes 9. Due to past experiences I count this as a result, meeting two girls makes it doubly so :) ... Read more >

Over a week has gone by since i entered Vietnam, and this has been the first chance to update my blog.  I've been travelling with two girls and a guy who actually went travelling around the world for 6 years, so I've kinda been distracted. The journey ... Read more >

The end of Cambodia

CAMBODIA | Monday, 12 Mar 2007 | Views [1099] | 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 >

Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 11 Mar 2007 | Views [1805]

Grrrr Grrrr and Grrrrrrrr.  It's on the bus to Phnom Penh that i realise i've left a tube containing all my paintings in my room back in Sihanoukville.  I can't get in touch with my guesthouse and what can they do anyway?  So it is a 4 hour journey each ... Read more >

Yup i was right, the shares taxi consists of 4 in the front and 3 in half of the back seat. The other half being taken up by vegetables, my bag and a chicken (I'm joking). Still it's only 2 hours and i have beach and sea at the end of it. I can't describe ... Read more >

It's an uneventful bus journey to Phnom Penh, I'm too late to travel straight to Kampot so i spend my time eating and shopping (for nothing, Bob is too heavy with books).  I still don't like Phnom Penh and i keep getting told my other travellers that ... Read more >

Boat to Battambang

CAMBODIA | Thursday, 22 Feb 2007 | Views [940] | Comments [1]

Perhaps the best boat ride to do in Cambodia says my guidebook, a leisurely cruise through a protected bird sanctuary.  I'm led to believe it should take 5 hours, the couple on the boat next to me think 9 and somebody else had heard 7. Hmmm.  The reality ... Read more >

A 6.5 hour bus journey at the back of the bus.  You don't want to be at the front because that's where you will die, and you don't want to be at the back because that's where i had no leg room and you get the most bumps.  Lets say i was glad to arrive ... Read more >


Phnom Penh and The Killing Fields

CAMBODIA | Thursday, 15 Feb 2007 | Views [1101]

The capital of Cambodia and the heart of many an atrocity.  I feel a bit like a voyeur, my main reason for visiting is to see the Tuol Sleng - Museum of Genocidal Crime and the killing fields.  It's a sobering experience, even the bad English on the ... Read more >

I decline an offer to go north on the night bus, this group of 4000 islands has been recommended and i want to see the Wat at Champasak and the waterfalls at Si Phan Dhon.  The journey is not great however - I arrive late in Pakse (by bus with 2 chickens ... Read more >
