A day that epitomises why I travel.

Judging Istabul by Istiklal street is like going to the Taj Mahal and judging it by the garden out the front. I may have been a bit too premature with my praise for Istanbul, literally, but after a couple of days in Sultanahment, I don't think my approbation ... Read more >

Tears, taxi thieves, transport truants, then tattoos on Tramadol in Thailand.

VIETNAM | Thursday, 16 Dec 2010 | Views [2311]

Leaving a country should never make for interesting reading, unless you have a fetish for missed flights. My obsession with such an activity is bordering on perverse, but I still adhere to the same casual approach to punctuality. Leaving anywhere ... Read more >

Spending in Saigon like it'll save my life.

VIETNAM | Sunday, 5 Dec 2010 | Views [1801] | Comments [2]

Yeah, I brought an expired credit card with me overseas. No worries for the naïve. Move money around like its millions and I can spend dollars like they're Vietnamese Dong. It's good karma keeping the economy going. Before long though, ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 4 Apr 2009 | Views [1417]

I'm out West, and I know it. If I didn't, most signs, businesses, and products have a reference to the 'West' in them. We're not East Coast and we're damn proud of it! I can't see that as a good enough reason to shoot someone, but I offer many thanks ... Read more >

Bolstering the Thai economy.

THAILAND | Sunday, 28 Jan 2007 | Views [1764] | Comments [2]

So fourth time in Chiang Mai! What to do other than buy more worthless shit. I made the most of my time alone when Gemma & Adam visited Pai. If making the most of your time can also be read as doing bugger all. I visited a nice park and gave my ... Read more >
