Russia transit

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Wednesday, 20 Jul 2011 | Views [272]

Waiting in transit is always interesting. Especially when you get emails from people who have been in your life for only a short time. Its not so much regret and sadness, more the warm feeling of luckiness, at the fact you had the experience in the ... Read more >

The days are short, waking up in the afternoon. Living here has been dream like, as each night is different but equally wonderful. After another awesome night out in Perugia, and cruisey afternoon in sweltering heat, waking and hanging out in the ... Read more >

Perugia. I have ended up in a house that is uniquely the warmest welcome and comfort, full of extremely friendly people! There is a jazz festival on here for the next ten days.   Through couchsurfing I met Vincenzo, who has opened his place to surfers and ... Read more >

Kia Ora Roma!

ITALY | Thursday, 7 Jul 2011 | Views [611]

That first full day of walking the streets of Rome started off pretty badly. The strap of my bag broke. Then at first sight of the coliseum I went for the camera and Smash, Bang, *^@#! So now all pictures of Rome will be blurry and unfocused, quite ... Read more >

Ciao Positano, I'm big city bound.

ITALY | Tuesday, 5 Jul 2011 | Views [600]

I arrived only hours ago in Rome after a great drive from the lovely Positano. The last few days have been the dream of all backpackers. Arrive in a small but beautiful town, snug against spectacular cliffs bordered by small beaches, where you find ... Read more >

Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri

ITALY | Friday, 1 Jul 2011 | Views [574]

Friday night and eyelids are drooping. Am in Sorrento, last night here with pretty much no motivation to join the herds of tourists who waste euro on insanely overpriced beer. Not to worry, today had my first epic adventure end up in a sapphire sea ... Read more >

Trulli tanned

ITALY | Monday, 27 Jun 2011 | Views [450]

Apparently its Monday. I just realized I have lost track of time and date quite efficiently due to complete immersion of my holiday head into the impressionable Italian summer. In the nearly two weeks I have already been here family has surrounded ... Read more >

Tutto Bene

ITALY | Wednesday, 15 Jun 2011 | Views [401]

In Italy. Temperature today was a lovely humid 24 degrees, with a soaring prediction of 37 for Sunday. I am seated in the lush, spacious living room of a friend of Marilu’s with a seaside view in Bari, with a plate of parmesan chunks, tomato slices, ... Read more >

If you love markets..

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 13 Jun 2011 | Views [338]

London summer is really putting on a show. Dull gloomy rain all day yesterday, I still managed to wander through some of the coolest areas to be at on a Sunday! Spitalfields Old market, all under cover and teeming with people, then on to Brick Lane ... Read more >

First daze in London

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 6 Jun 2011 | Views [644]

Flight number two of the long journey to London was equally uncomfortable. I did have three seats again which was lucky, but the loud air-con teamed with terrible Thai food meant very little rest. On arrival I was so happy to see Jay, waiting for me ... Read more >

Back in Action

THAILAND | Thursday, 2 Jun 2011 | Views [470]

Ignoring the build up; that uncontrollable glee, to get back on the road, I get to Auckland airport. On the plane, after finding the deal of all deals for two bottles of some of my favourite vodka, and endure 12 hours to Bangkok.   Four ... Read more >
