Trip: Finding Myself

There are [47] stories from my trip: Finding Myself


Bye Bye Bangkok

THAILAND | Tuesday, 13 Jun 2006 | Views [653]

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 [546]

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 >

Phnom Penh

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 26 Apr 2006 | Views [704] | Comments [3]

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 [670]

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 >

Vung Tau

VIETNAM | Sunday, 9 Apr 2006 | Views [647]

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 [1025] | 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 >

The Cu Chi tunnels is the network of tunnels near Saigon in which the Viet Cong fought against the US army. As well as the tunnels there were sniper pits, only a very slim western girl could fit into a sniper pit. The tunnels are on 3 levels, the top ... Read more >

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 4 Apr 2006 | Views [1323]

Or something similar. This was a very quiet resort but it was off season. I did enjoy lazing by the pool but I decided that I should do something so I took a half day tour. First we visited white sand dunes, and area next to a lake which is like a very ... Read more >

Vietnam

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 29 Mar 2006 | Views [507]

I've never been in a communist country before. I was expecting them to march me to a Gulag because they had been tipped off by a British agent that I had stolen a library book when I was 14. I've only been here a day but it doesn't feel Commie. The hotel ... Read more >

Bar Girls of Bangkok

THAILAND | Monday, 27 Mar 2006 | Views [1532] | Comments [1]

I played pool in a bar in which two bar women were having a great time getting drunk and generally being raucous. The bar women were about 30 years of age but very girly in their high heels and lacy dresses, very much like a lot of the Thai women. They  ... Read more >
