bathing in beautiful budapest

HUNGARY | Monday, 8 Oct 2007 | Views [260]

Budapest is a relly geat city. It seems to have the perfect mix for my likings. It's westernised enough that most things are pretty simple to do, but not too much that it has been over-run. It still has a very hungarian feel. There is also so much history ... Read more >

SLOVAKIA | Sunday, 7 Oct 2007 | Views [1802]

we are currently in Bratislava [think the movie 'Eurotrip' - "oh my god, we're in eastern europe!"] and, well, it is pretty cod-ordinary. dont get me wrong, there is a pretty looking castle and some nice old buildings in the old town, but ... Read more >

POLAND | Saturday, 29 Sep 2007 | Views [252]

GERMANY | Friday, 14 Sep 2007 | Views [229]

well now i am in germany. for all of my worrying about my russian visa, it all turned out fine (although the immigration officer at the moscow airport was giving my passport a few strange looks) and now i find myself thinking back to those days of german ... Read more >

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Thursday, 13 Sep 2007 | Views [362]

well im now back on the computer...listening to poms whinging about not being able to get football on the TV. Life on the trans siberian was certainly something very interesting. there were so many characters on the train and there was always something ... Read more >

life on the Kmart express pt1.

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Wednesday, 12 Sep 2007 | Views [829]

Well I am now in moscow and still finding it hard to believe that I am now in europe. the place that seemed to be so far away for so long has suddenly creeped up on me - even though it took me 5 days on a train to get here. Just a few hours ago i was ... Read more >

downtown mongolia

MONGOLIA | Sunday, 9 Sep 2007 | Views [309]

The train trip from Beijing to Ulaanbaatar was certainly something to remember. It's hard to believe the changes in scenery that can happen in over 24 hours. Rolling out of Beijing it was endless apartment block, construction sites and pollution everywhere.... Read more >

CHINA | Saturday, 8 Sep 2007 | Views [331]

Mongolia here I come!!!!!! So my time in China has thankfully almost come to an end. This time tomorrow morning I'll be on the train watching the great wall go past the windows and the horrible grey pollution [china mist] that covers all of china will ... Read more >

CHINA | Thursday, 30 Aug 2007 | Views [442]

what a week it has been. it has felt like the longest and most trying week of my life. Needing to get from beijing to shanghai to get a new russian visa because the dates on my old visa wouldnt cover my new plans, i soon found out that all trains ... Read more >

china aint so great anymore...

CHINA | Sunday, 26 Aug 2007 | Views [714]

I was really looking forward to coming back to china for a week again. I was wondering what it would be like after 10 years, but it seems either my memories of what it was like are wrong, or Beijing has gone downhill since then. Already I'm just wanting ... Read more >

good morning vietnam!

VIETNAM | Monday, 20 Aug 2007 | Views [505] | Comments [1]

Another day, another country. more importantly, another currency with way too many zeros to count. I just cashed a $100 US travellers cheque and got back just under 1.6 MILLION dong. i could barely close my wallet. I now have a new favourite game -... Read more >

CAMBODIA | Thursday, 16 Aug 2007 | Views [622]

a land of extremes

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 12 Aug 2007 | Views [582]

farewell laos, hello cambodia..

THAILAND | Wednesday, 8 Aug 2007 | Views [787]

well once again I find myself for some reason in the grimy hole that is Bangkok. For the third and final time I have to endure the relentless offers of tuk tuks, taxi, suit and god knows what else, dodging manic traffic and choking on the pollution.... Read more >
