So close to finishing one month early.

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 25 Dec 2011 | Views [2373] | Comments [2]

It's days like these I don't question my sanity; I fear for it. I question my dedication when even the air I breath conspires against me. I wonder how much more I would be enjoying myself if I was laying on a beach somewhere in Asia, far removed from ... Read more >

Riding a scooter to Russia.

VIETNAM | Friday, 19 Nov 2010 | Views [1108]

I've heard of time-warps, sometimes believing I had passed through one when I see my moustache in some reflective surface. I think the 70's are alive and well until reality makes a rare appearance in my mind. I've heard of worm holes as well, those ... Read more >

Luck so bad it requires a name change.

VIETNAM | Thursday, 21 Oct 2010 | Views [2517] | Comments [2]

Sapa is Vietnam's trekking capital, and we had gone there with a vague idea to do just that. With loafers left over from the wedding being my only shoes, it shows just how vague I am. I hiked to Cat Cat village in them and nearly ... Read more >

Far too cool to fly on time.

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 20 Mar 2010 | Views [2013] | Comments [1]

This seasons fashion is idiocy, best expressed through missed flights and further unnecessary expenditure. While the finger of blame could stray slightly towards others, I must accept full responsibility for uncovering more and more unusual ... Read more >

Bored, burnt and bonkers in Blowin' Bowen.

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 21 Sep 2009 | Views [1364] | Comments [2]

What drugs was I on when I thought of returning to Bowen? Anyone who reads my ramblings will be able to answer that question, but they won't win anything for their trouble. I drive around amazed that the fond memories I have of the place seem so far ... Read more >

Plans are made for getting laid.

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 13 Sep 2009 | Views [2238] | Comments [1]

Everybody needs holidays. Some of us need them more often than others. If I don't have a holiday every few months at least, I start entertaining thoughts of regicide. Everybody needs sex as well. If I don't have any sex for a few months at least, I ... Read more >

Prawn shit removes some polish.

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 8 Sep 2009 | Views [1634]

I can take my too-cool-for-school sunglasses off now because some of the shiny gloss has been taken off of Broome. I'm still as happy here as a four year old with a new toy. Or a forty year old. Familiarity breeds somehow, and its offspring is considered ... Read more >

Succumbing to the style and cycles of the sisterhood.

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 3 Aug 2009 | Views [1152]

The effeminate air in this house is obviously starting to have an effect on me. I'm not prepared to wear make up, gossip with sacrilegious fervour or watch 'Dirty dancing' on a weekly basis yet. I have developed an unhealthy obsession with Frangelico ... Read more >

Part 1. Risking life and limb on a reckless road trip.

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 26 May 2009 | Views [1146]

If Broome has a short coming, it's that it's not a road trip. It's a bit too stationary for that. It's not actually a lot of things, like a toaster, philosophical thesis or belly button lint to list but a few. Most things obey the laws of physics and ... Read more >

Part 2. Blissed out under a Kimberley moon.

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 26 May 2009 | Views [1116]

Our first destination was the Bungle Bungle's. Knowing nothing of them prior and being given no clue by their name, we arrived with few expectations. Good thing too as it was night time when we finally made it. I was driving by then and ploughing through ... Read more >

Part 3. The toilet talk of travelers

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 26 May 2009 | Views [982]

I woke up before Lady Luck to find my tongue stuck in quicksand, my mind stuck in neutral and my pillow stuck to my face with drool. With BYO booze, my wallet had been a superfluous accompaniment to the night but had somehow managed to get lost in its ... Read more >

Part 4. The dingo pack and life outback.

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 26 May 2009 | Views [2467]

Soon after it was time to eat before the 4am dry heaves started 12 hours too early. We stopped at the Halls Creek roadhouse where everyone's name could have been Bates, Bundy or Manson for all I knew. Spratty took affront to Mr. Roadhouse's service ... Read more >

Finding all the good things I hadn't started searching for yet.

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 14 Apr 2009 | Views [968]

So I got myself a job as a 'dishy'. Not exactly evolving in the vocational scheme of things. Particularly when it's in a brewery, a place that offers the chance of rapid intellectual devolving. Aside from the universe again providing exactly what I ... Read more >

I should have thrown some dry, smoked and dirty grapes over my left shoulder.

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 30 Mar 2009 | Views [1998]

Farmers should quake whenever they see me approach their fields. I have the cursed touch of Midas' evil twin. All harvesting work I do carves through profits like a one man economic wrecking ball. I am the best thing to happen to any farms ... Read more >

Rotten to the core.

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 7 Feb 2009 | Views [1620]

After a fond farewell to our Canadian duo, we high-tailed it out of Hobart leaving a Hansel and Gretel like trail of money behind us. We planned to cover the state in four days and were aware most of that would have to be ... Read more >

Have I spent enough to own part of Tasmania?

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 7 Feb 2009 | Views [2632]

The Apple Isle. A tasty destination if ever I heard one. But as delicious as it sounds, the only people licking their lips were the people catering to / cashing in on the tourists. Towns are so small and devoid of business ... Read more >

Indelible scribblings with black ink and cocaine.

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 15 Dec 2008 | Views [2721]

With my left leg now tattooed from ankle to knee, I'm starting to think that enough is enough; maybe. Not that the tattoo addiction has subsided any. It's just that I have lost faith in my ability to distinguish between a talented artist and ... Read more >

The perils of beer in glass bottles.

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 12 Nov 2008 | Views [1329] | Comments [1]

6 night shifts in a row. A sudden and significant increase in temperature. Gauge measures 28.5 degrees in our dorm at 6am. Sleeping in daylight is 3 to 5 hours of fitful napping, punctuated by tossing, a constant sheen of sweat and loud room mates ... Read more >

A bad moon was arising.

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 5 Oct 2008 | Views [1130]

Not much changes here and hence, there isn't much of interest to write about. My last rambling post is proof of my efforts to make something out of nothing. When something interesting happens, I usually rush to my laptop to describe it for the friends ... Read more >

At the mercy of a madman

THAILAND | Friday, 19 Jan 2007 | Views [1164] | Comments [1]

If the beautiful city of Chiang Mai had not been the destination of another trip on the insomniac express, I would be dictating this story through a lawyer, having told another Khao San Road travel agent what I thought of their lies in the language ... Read more >
