The Islands in the South of Thailand

THAILAND | Monday, 27 Dec 2010 | Views [290]

These islands are so beautiful, it's hard to describe them.  I'm enjoying my time on the beach and snorkling around the islands.  But, like every over developed place, I have to contend with jerks with loud boom boxes playing hip hop in French!, sales ... Read more >

Worlds Apart - More on the Kingdom of Bhutan

BHUTAN | Monday, 27 Dec 2010 | Views [278]

The more I travel, the more I realize two things: cultures are so different and people are so similar.  I marvel thinking that a few days ago I was on top of the mountains in Bhutan and now I'm seeing mountains come out straight from the ocean in Thailand.... Read more >

Patong is super tacky! But the islands are fantastic.

I'm afraid I picked up the wrong brochure.  What the heck.  I couldn't have chosen a more jarring awakening from the slumber of the Himalayas mountains if I had tried.  I almost took a plane back (anywhere) when I arrived here at midnight and saw the ... Read more >

Too much to tell

I almost met the King

Ok, so he was about 100 meters away and the Bhutan King Police asked me to put away my camera, but still.  He's soooo handsome, like a movie star.  Today is National Day and the big celebration is here in Timphu.  I will try to share some pics, if I ... Read more >

Bangkok was an assault to the senses.  Loud, the streets full of people, the sidewalks full of vendors, trinkets everywhere, the sweet smell of food intermingling with the smell of sweaty people making a tough living. Bhutan is the opposite.  The entrance ... Read more >

Don’t order kosher on a Japanese airline

THAILAND | Wednesday, 15 Dec 2010 | Views [270]

Why would you, right? I did, and I'm not even Jewish. I'm not even sure what kosher is. But I think they answer to a higher authority (as claimed by the hot dogs) so I thought 'why not'. Well now I know why not. Because it's horrible!  Besides the ... Read more >

Ok, I'm ready!

USA | Monday, 13 Dec 2010 | Views [238]

Wow, packing for 3 weeks of travelling in two diff climates is hard!  But I stuck to my tested methods:  roll all the clothes, wear only matching things, and above all, keep it light. The smaller airlines have very strict weight limits, so we'll see how ... Read more >
