Temples of Angkor, Day 3

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 10 Dec 2008 | Views [1318]

My final morning I woke up deliberately at 4AM, since I was supposed to get picked up at 4:30 by my tuk-tuk driver to go see the sunrise. I had no idea what time I needed to be at Angkor Wat. By 4:45 my driver still had not shown up, and I tried ... Read more >

A quick stop in KL

MALAYSIA | Saturday, 6 Dec 2008 | Views [756]

I had a very short visit to Kuala Lumpur (KL) on my way to Cambodia because my flights did not connect, so I visited for less than a day. Most people say that KL is boring and there is not much to see. I just can't understand that. I had lots of things ... Read more >

Jobja

INDONESIA | Friday, 5 Dec 2008 | Views [2227] | Comments [4]

From Bali I flew to Jobjakarta, known to the Indonesians as Jobja, and sometimes spelled with Y's instead of J's just to further confuse foreigners. Anyway, Jobja is a medium size city in central java, most famous for the Buddhist temple Borobudur.... Read more >

I took the boat back to Lombok at 8 AM (its a 30 minute ride). Unfortuently, my boat was going to Bansal instead of straight to sengigi (there was another boat that was going straight there, but I had my stupid booking with warren wanaka). After arriving ... Read more >

The Power of Information

INDONESIA | Thursday, 27 Nov 2008 | Views [1044]

Information is very valuable. How much should things cost? What are good places to go? Who can you trust? When traveling, I hate leaving the backpacker path, since if I am not staying at good hostels, everything else becomes more expensive and my time ... Read more >
