Walking in Copenhagen

DENMARK | Wednesday, 27 Jun 2012 | Views [2523]

Day 1 Although I only live 20 minutes drive from Glasgow airport, my 0700 flight meant I had to get up at 0515. So it's 0600 and I'm waiting for my flight to my first stop on the blitz through Nordic countries. My flight is on a small plane. It's ... Read more >

Lost in Korat

THAILAND | Saturday, 9 Jun 2012 | Views [1370]

I've pretty much gotten used to long distane travelling now, so the 3 hour ride to Korat didn't sound too duanting. On every intercity bus journey, there's some kind of on-board entertainment. Mostly it's MTV, Thai style, which is easy to get into.... Read more >

Khon Kaen

THAILAND | Friday, 8 Jun 2012 | Views [1500]

Time to leave Udon Thani and move on to Khon Kaen. I'm out of the hotel by 0800. The bus station is only 10 minutes walk away, but it a steaming hot already and I see if I can get a reasonably priced ride from the army of tuk tuk drivers who hang ... Read more >

Sukhothai

THAILAND | Wednesday, 30 May 2012 | Views [702]

After a 10 hour train journey from Ayuttaya, I'm beginning understand why train journeys in Thailand are so much slower by train than by road. There's seems to be a never ending stream of unscheduled stops, broken down train parts and invisible items ... Read more >

I have to get up real early at 0600 to get my 0750 train to Yogjakarta, my transit point to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Borabadur. The Indonesians have figured out a way to squeeze even more money out of the rich (assumed) foreigners by offering ... Read more >

Just before arrival at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, I started to read the travel guide on Jakarta and realised I completely forgot I had to pay about $20 for a Visa on Arrival (VOA). So I was a bit worried when I queued up for the VOA with ... Read more >
