Rainbow Beach - Brisbane

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 30 Oct 2009 | Views [383]

After my stay in the Town of 1770 I headed south to Rainbow Beach to join a tour to Fraser Island. Had to wait a few days to get on one so had to spend a few days at Rainbow Beach. By chance people that I had met at the Whitsundays were staying at the ... Read more >

If I remember correctly last I left off was the last few days of Vietnam. We went up into Sapa mountains for three days and it was fantastic. The land is tierred to help with irrigation and rice growing - the result is the most unusual and beautiful ... Read more >


Over a thousand kilometres in four days...

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 2 Sep 2009 | Views [393]

The last few days have been brilliant. The Mekong Delta tour was a bit of a disappointment as it rained heavily and for a boat trip we seemed to spend a lot of it on buses! It was still enjoyable though. We finished up in Saigon which was brilliant. ... Read more >


the end of the project and into Vietnam

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 26 Aug 2009 | Views [358]

Tuesday we were on our way to breakfast when we were told the director's grandfather (not actual grandfather but the man who looked after him when he was orphaned as a child) had died. He had died at 5am and at 7am all the kids from the orphanage and ... Read more >


Bang Mealea - update

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 16 Aug 2009 | Views [1012] | Comments [1]

Hey all's still going well in Bang Melea. We've been out there for two weeks without coming back into the city so sleeping last night without being woken up by the noise of cows/pigs/babies crying/the monk's drum beating at 4am was quite nice! All's ... Read more >

We are back in Siem Reap for a few hours while waiting on a bus to Battambang where we are spending the weekend. We have been at the new project for two weeks. It is brilliant. We are working with an orphange/school for orphans, poor and homeless. Over ... Read more >

the first part of the project is painting a new building of a school (the other buildings are also undecorated, just concrete walls etc but you have to start somewhere...). it's going well so far. we have sandpapered, primed and painted the whole exterior ... Read more >


Kanchanburi/Siem Reap

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 12 Jul 2009 | Views [361]

After Bangkok we headed to Kanchanaburi which is a few hours north of Bangkok. It was much more enjoyable than Bangkok - quieter and less in your face. We hired bicycles and cycled out to these caves where there were loads of buddhist statues etc it ... Read more >


Bangkok!

THAILAND | Tuesday, 7 Jul 2009 | Views [354]

I have arrived in Bangkok. All's going well so far. We haven't done too much yet - just relaxing. We have seen the "real" Bangkok - it's really poor and a lot of families just live in one house. We went out one night so have seen the party ... Read more >
