URUGUAY | Monday, 23 Nov 2009 | Views [552]

I spent a long weekend in Montevideo. It's a lot quieter than Buenos Aires but just as nice, I think. However, the bar culture isn't great for a single person so I was bored at night. It's not that the people are unfriendly, they were very polite and ... Read more >

River Plate vs Boca Juniors

ARGENTINA | Friday, 30 Oct 2009 | Views [1197] | Comments [1]

I wanted to see this match which the Guardian, according to one tour video, described as the most exciting sporting spectacle on the planet. At 300 pesos (£50) for a ticket with a coach to the ground and a guide I couldn’t let the opportunity pass. ... Read more >

Buenos Aires: The story so far

ARGENTINA | Thursday, 22 Oct 2009 | Views [472]

I arrived on 29th September, 3 weeks ago, and I checked into The Clan House. A nice place with nice people but unfortunately above a Goth disco that blasts out music until the early hours. Still, I will forget the disco before I forget the friendliness ... Read more >

Buenos Aires

ARGENTINA | Wednesday, 21 Oct 2009 | Views [517]

Three weeks now and after spending them in decent but cramped hotels I am about to move into an apartment for 3 months. A luxurious apartment. I'm happy here and I hope to be happier

Bye Bye Bangkok

THAILAND | Tuesday, 13 Jun 2006 | Views [698]

I wasn´t unhappy to leave, I had done my time. Nothing much to say except that I am now part of an internet cafe advert poster. OK, it´s not the most sophisticated poster but if you are ever near the Ambassador hotel in Bangkok and you come across the ... Read more >

Koh Chang

THAILAND | Tuesday, 13 Jun 2006 | Views [627]

Back in Bangkok I realised that two weeks there would be too long so I went to Koh Chang for 3 days. It´s a very nice but very boring island although I did meet a very interesting English woman and we had a lovely chat. Thai women are gorgeous in a skinny ... Read more >

I stayed at the Foreign Correspondents Club (FCC). As one would expect the rooms were of a high quality and the beds even had a duvet, but they weren't half noisy. My room is not in the main building and after settling in I had to walk back to the main ... Read more >

Back to Bangkok

THAILAND | Friday, 21 Apr 2006 | Views [716]

It's nice to be back. I wa sat in the bar across the road from my hotel with another boozy faced fat bellied English guy about 6 feet away when inbetween us sat herself a young Thai babe. She spoke to me but I didn't have much enthusiasm to speak to ... Read more >

The Vietnamese people are very forward when it comes to discussing my beer belly. For the past 4 days I have been at a resort on the coast where there are few westerners. On a number of occassions people, especially women, have stroked my stomach and ... Read more >

This is a coastal resort. I have spotted a few westerners but we are very rare here. Some of the locals and other holiday makers will smile and say hello and little children stare at me. I was on the back of a motor bike taxi yesterday when a couple ... Read more >

The English excell themselves

VIETNAM | Friday, 7 Apr 2006 | Views [1077] | Comments [6]

I met an English guy in a bar yesterday. Think of the pretentious English who think they are sophisticates because they have managed to settle in Spain and then multiply it by 20. He avoided my gaze like I was carrying bird flu and then spoke to the ... Read more >
