Postcard from Yosemite & Epilogue

USA | Thursday, 6 Oct 2011 | Views [238]

Early start.   I was outside the hotel from 6.35am waiting for the tour bus to pick me up.   They’d said 6.45 but I didn’t want to miss it.   It didn’t arrive until 7.05... Most of the trip I stayed quiet in back, with my ear phones in.   Nirvana, ... Read more >

Postcard from Monterey

USA | Thursday, 6 Oct 2011 | Views [185]

Another day with Ron & Franziska.   It was brilliant, I was totally city’ed-out and it was great to just get away again in good company.   We went first to the Aquarium, we had members passes, which is very good as it saved us a ... Read more >

Postcard from San Francisco

USA | Thursday, 6 Oct 2011 | Views [161]

Also a short one, mostly because I didn’t do too much... I got up late, wandered down to get brunch, made my way to the SFMOMA, decided I wasn’t really in the mood to spend 18 bucks meandering through exhibitions so checked out the gift shop to ... Read more >

Postcard from the Sonoma Valley

USA | Thursday, 6 Oct 2011 | Views [101]

A short one.   Sunday.   It was a beautiful, sunny day.   So amazing to see Ron again after so many years – 16 or 17?? – he hasn’t changed a bit.   Although, I’m sure he has, life does that to us, but he looked the same, and we got on the same, ... Read more >

Postcard from the Coast Starlight & the Teatro Zinzanni

USA | Saturday, 1 Oct 2011 | Views [178]

Just a short blog... Sitting in my hotel room in San Francisco, it’s got one of those over-bed fans – note to self, when I get my dream house/flat/someplace it’s going to have one of those over-bed fans, a wooden one, or one like this in white..... Read more >

Postcard from (mostly) Seattle

USA | Saturday, 1 Oct 2011 | Views [297]

A few days, blogging silence... Been too busy, not been in the mood, and the hotel didn’t have free wireless anyhow.   But, I’ve got 23 hours to kill on the train now, and whilst the scenery is beautiful, there is only ... Read more >

Postcard from Vancouver

CANADA | Monday, 26 Sep 2011 | Views [428]

I’m writing this whilst I wait from my breakfast -, or is it last night’s dinner? – at Mary’s Diner on Davie.   Mary’s Diner is your typical stereotype, a juke box playing various rock (well, it might be digital but it’s a juke box), plastic ... Read more >

Postcard from Oz...

THAILAND | Monday, 3 Aug 2009 | Views [375] | Comments [4]

Once upon a time there was a girl.  She was a mixed up, confused and confuddled little girl, quite a stubborn, independant thing, with a fierce survival instinct and a will to succeed, whatever the odds.  (Sometimes she thought, she was just like the ... Read more >

Postcard from Chiang Mai...

THAILAND | Monday, 3 Aug 2009 | Views [542]

Actually, as so often happens with real postcards, this one isn't being written from Chiang Mai, but instead from a rather luxurious suite on the 52nd floor of a hotel in Bangkok.  Yes, I seem to be back in Bangkok but this time only a pit-stop.  And, ... Read more >

Postcard from Detox....

THAILAND | Tuesday, 28 Jul 2009 | Views [558] | Comments [5]

Wow!   It has been an incredibly turbulent week and a bit...   Ups, downs, in’s, out’s... It’s been emotional baby! The detox itself – I lost 6.6kgs!!!!!!!!   In ordinary English that’s a stone!   Not that you’d really notice much, there ... Read more >

Postcard from Koh Phangan...

THAILAND | Sunday, 19 Jul 2009 | Views [427] | Comments [6]

Well, Koh Phangan is MUCH more like it...  Beautiful beaches, scenic postcard views everywhere.  And its hot!  Well, it keeps raining torrentially, but not today.  And of course, mosquito spray doesn't work, using the plug-in mosquito repellent in the ... Read more >

Postcard from Bangkok...

THAILAND | Thursday, 16 Jul 2009 | Views [768] | Comments [4]

FFS I have been writing this one for ages.  And the internet ether has stolen it!  Which, just goes to show, what kind of crap Bangkok is! The story went something like this... This one could have been called 'kidnapped in Bangkok' or 'I fricking hate ... Read more >

Postcard from KL...

MALAYSIA | Tuesday, 14 Jul 2009 | Views [639] | Comments [6]

I was going to call this one 'bruised in KL' but thought that might make some readers smirk and others worry...  But I can report I've just had the MOST wonderful massage at KL airport.  Well, a girl's got to keep herself amused somehow when there are ... Read more >

Minus 3 days...

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 11 Jul 2009 | Views [241]

Minus 3 days to my flight to Thailand... My life is packed into a 75 square foot storage locker in Hammersmith (and it is FULL!) and a 70 litre backpack (which isn’t absolutely full and weighs 17.2kg – feels like 117 though!)...   Limbo right now.... Read more >
