Tadlo

LAOS | Thursday, 15 Feb 2007 | Views [1066]

So i changed my mind and decided to go to Tadlo to go and play with the elephants in the Bolaven plateau - they have great Arabica coffee and French baguettes and I'm hungry. It's a tuk-tuk and then a bus journey to Tadlo, the bus is crammed and of ... Read more >

Into Laos

LAOS | Friday, 2 Feb 2007 | Views [1122]

I hadn't actually expected to go into Laos today...let  me explain: I took a late train to Ubon Ratchathani and didn't arrive their until 14:15.  Immediately a tuk-tuk driver asked (in reasonable English) whether i wanted to go to Laos.  This set off ... Read more >

A day in the life...

THAILAND | Thursday, 1 Feb 2007 | Views [1104] | Comments [1]

I don't have a lot of choice over where to sleep, and so for ease i choose a hotel opposite the train station.  It's cheap and the guide book says it's clean.  I don't verify this as I'm in a hurry to catch a bus.  Later i find this isn't the case when ... Read more >

Khorat, Phimai National Park, Surin and Phanom Rung

THAILAND | Thursday, 1 Feb 2007 | Views [4751]

I gain a lot of information from my nights at the lodge near Khao Yai and so decide to stay at Thailand's second biggest city which i will call its old name of Khorat (as i can't spell the new name), and visit the Kmer ruins at Phimai.  These are well ... Read more >

Pak Chong, Khao Yai National Park and bats

THAILAND | Sunday, 28 Jan 2007 | Views [2627]

My guide book says 26 baht (40 pence) from Ayutthaya to Pak Chong, i get charged 175 baht...hmmmm.  i feel i may have been ripped off here.  There's a guest house owner at the station who tempts me with stories of swimming pools and hot and cold running ... Read more >

Ayuthaya

THAILAND | Friday, 26 Jan 2007 | Views [913]

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 >

Bangkok

THAILAND | Saturday, 20 Jan 2007 | Views [1048] | Comments [1]

It was with a bit of trepidation that i arrived here - no accommodation, at a new airport that's not in my newly acquired guidebook and having not backpacked for the last few weeks.  I was expecting heat and large shopping malls and lots of young Thai ... Read more >


The rough route :)

THAILAND | Thursday, 18 Jan 2007 | Views [1059]

Boy will this change - its almost pointless working it out.  Lets call it more a guide than a rule (pirates of the Caribbean - I've watched too many films again of late!) Thailand - Bangkok, Ayuthaya, Khaoyai Nat Park Laos - Champaok, Si Phan Din ... Read more >

So its not SE Asia!  It is however a short stopover on my way to Bangkok.  I cant say a lot about my experience here...its a nice city but it was windy and rainy and i was glad to be getting the train to Munich for my flight to Thailand.


Orihuela Costa and the end of Europe Leg 1

SPAIN | Monday, 15 Jan 2007 | Views [980]

So I've been here over a week now and Xmas has come and gone.  It's strange to have gone from being completely free and independent to living with your parents - it's lucky we all get on. My plans have already changed, i was pretty sure i was going ... Read more >

This is a great city.  Ive been here before though, and coming to the end of my first 'section' of trip i felt lazy and not in a sightseeing mood.  In fact in the two days i spent here i saw 4 films!  It was great but i got a bit fed up of popcorn so ... Read more >

Naples and Vesuvius

ITALY | Thursday, 14 Dec 2006 | Views [1407] | Comments [1]

It doesn't sound good for Naples - the descriptions are 'dirty' and 'crime ridden'.  Well dirty it definitely is, full of scooters pumping out fumes, rubbish on the streets and grubby grey scenery.  But it has such a vibe, it's bursting with life and ... Read more >

Sorrento, Capri and the Amalfi coast

ITALY | Tuesday, 12 Dec 2006 | Views [2371]

It was another spur of the moment things for picking Sorrento - i have no guide book, and i really hadn't had much Internet access.  I'd picked a converted monastery for my digs - good reviews and i could actually afford it.  This is an expensive town.... Read more >
