THAILAND | Monday, 9 Mar 2020 | Views [421]

Only two days left on this legendary Southeast Asian journey. It would only get more legendary today as I set out again toward Thailand. My plan was to stay two nights at Eddielin’s home but I opted to head back today to give myself a bit of a ... Read more >

Vientiane on Foot

LAOS | Saturday, 7 Mar 2020 | Views [399]

For the large part it was on foot today. My bizarre list of travel experiences only got even more bizarre today. When I went downstairs for breakfast the manager accused me of taking a piss in my room. Originally I paid for two nights but they told me ... Read more >

After gorgeous weather during my five days in Chiang Mai it bucketed down the entire overnight bus ride to Nong Khai, across the border from Vientiane. In addition all of my stuff got wet due to a leaky roof and I had no way of charging my phone. Grab ... Read more >

After a few days in Bangkok, I'm in Chiang Mai. Whilst I planned on taking the sleeper train the other night I ended up taking the bus. What a huge mistake that was, as I ended up getting almost no sleep. The silver lining was that I could keep my phone ... Read more >

Temples, English Schools, and Khao San Road

THAILAND | Thursday, 27 Feb 2020 | Views [499]

The group of men in their late 60s and early 70s ahead of me on the plane were overzealous with an overdose of libido on their way to the Land of Smiles. Larry, aged 74, had a passport with mostly stamps from Thailand, Cambodia, and the Philippines. ... Read more >
