Here, there, everywhere... A modest attempt at chronicling my around the world adventure over the next year (or so).

Our own entourage

VIETNAM | Sunday, 26 Oct 2008 | Views [605]

Took the night train from Hanoi and arrived into Lao Cai, about 1.5 hours away from Sapa the final destination for a overnight trek and homestay. After a cramped minibus ride to Sapa we arrived at the hotel handling our tour and were met by 20 local ... Read more >


Seventh Wonder of the world?

VIETNAM | Sunday, 26 Oct 2008 | Views [606]

After a cramped minibus ride to Halong Bay we boarded our junk boat for lunch. Halong means descending dragon and legend has it dragons came to fight the devils who were going to attack the villagers. The locals also believe dragons never left and help ... Read more >


Hanoi is hopping...

VIETNAM | Sunday, 26 Oct 2008 | Views [440]

I toured Hanoi for the day including visiting the infamous Hao Lo prison otherwise known as Hanoi Hilton. This is where American POWs were held during the Vietnam war including John McCain. It was a quick tour and the prison actually has more interesting ... Read more >

Barnstorming the coast of Vietnam

VIETNAM | Sunday, 19 Oct 2008 | Views [620]

We arrived into Mui Ne at 1:30am about 2 hours late from Saigon. My bus/hotel drop off was missed so I had to hike back about 500m from the stop in hopes that someone was still up. I had called them in Saigon before leaving and told them I would be there ... Read more >


Identity crisis?

VIETNAM | Friday, 17 Oct 2008 | Views [642]

Entering the city of Saigon or Hoh Chi Minh depending on when you were born was like entering any other large SE Asian city, tons of motos, tons of traffic and tons of people. Somehow there is flow that for the most part makes it all work. It was early ... Read more >

Angkor Wat???

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 14 Oct 2008 | Views [675]

After making it to a guesthouse on our "free" tuk-tuk ride I settled into a room with a Canadian woman I met named Brooke. We split the costs which saved us each four dollars. May not seem like much but that can be a nights lodging at a guesthouse.... Read more >


Life from the back of a moto

CAMBODIA | Saturday, 11 Oct 2008 | Views [526]

I arrived after a blissfully short flight from Vientianne at Phnom Pehn airport and quickly walked outside to catch a moto into town. I bargained hard and got one for $1. Little did I know that the dollar is king in Cambodian so much so that all ATMs ... Read more >


Students will be students

LAOS | Saturday, 11 Oct 2008 | Views [659]

There are things you learn about yourself after taking enough multiple 10+hour bus journeys. Examples include frequency of bathroom and meals, and the amount of sleep. I have gotten quite good at not having these things in regular intervals and when ... Read more >

Left Chiang Mai early Friday morning on the minibus bound for the Thai/Laos border. I had purchased a package which included transportation to the border, a night in a guesthouse, some meals, transportation across the river to Laos, then 2 days down ... Read more >

An elephant never forgets

THAILAND | Wednesday, 1 Oct 2008 | Views [524]

arrived in Chiang Mai on Tuesday morning after a pretty uneventful overnight trainride. At the train station I headed straight for the bathroom as to avoid the pescy tuk-tuk and taxi drivers so I could get my bearings. I came out and haggled with one ... Read more >
