So, after a stunning sunning four days in a bootifull house by the beach in ko phangan, it's now time to start the challenge - from Penang to London (or Aberaeron, depending on cash and energy), all overland. Train, tuk tuk (eughh), bus, car, motorbike, ... Read more >

To dive or not to dive?

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 25 Aug 2008 | Views [562]
