Sihanoukville: I truly am a beach person.  Didn't realise how much I had missed it until we saw the beach out of the bus we had been sitting in for nearly 10 hours. We are staying in a cheap (and nasty) guesthouse.  But we are literally on the beach ... Read more >

Sunrise at Angkor: got up in the dark, 4:15am to cycle (we were motoring out there, racing dawn) out to the temples.  Hit some potholes along the way and lost my breakfast baguette. Managed to find the hill, Phnom Bakheng that is apparently great to ... Read more >

So Siem Reap is the craziest place for tuk tuk drivers.  Got absolutely swamped when we got off the bus.  Got a lift to our guesthouse (quite nice, mattress on the floor again though) and then an offer to go to the sunset over Angkor and maybe a 3 day ... Read more >

the mekong

So the night bazaar wasn't that great- whatever we ate/drank gave us all gastro.  We got on a bus to Chiang Khong anyway... Erin and I decorated the exterior.  3 hours and an empty stomach later we got into the border town.  (Friday)  We stayed at ... Read more >

all endured a bout of gastro crossed into laos slowboat/speedboat down the mekong in luang prabang frustrated with laos kip (currency)- too many darn zeros! feels like you're rich with so many notes but it's only worth a few dollars.

The beer was great.  Erin and Tony got some great photos with the elephants they rode while the elephant camp was bathed! Dinner again at Forestry 33.  Great thai food at a good price, nice big tables and seats.  I think the best place to eat in Pai.... Read more >

Yes I am taking lots of photos and you would be surprised at how difficult everyone makes getting out of school; nearly impossible.  This is my L form I am talking about.  I posted it the other day... not sure if the girl in 7/11 gave me the correct ... Read more >

well worn path

3 days in Thailand feel like they have been jam packed with seeing the sights and visiting places all things Thai but life still feels like a homely bubble. Our arrival in Bangkok began with an over-charged cabfare, not much by AUS$ standards and offset ... Read more >
