The Bangkok Blues

THAILAND | Monday, 26 Jan 2009 | Views [2300] | Comments [15]

  I've been in Bangkok for 24hrs now and I've been feeling a bit useless again - mainly because of the heat, the expensive hostel rooms, the tiny streets and the swarming and constant crowds. I left Sihanoukville for Phnom Penh on the 24th.... Read more >

The past....

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 25 Jan 2009 | Views [848] | Comments [3]

Before I went away I would often feel like the best and most interesting parts of my life were still to come. The part when I forge a path for my self either with a chosen career, a recognised talent or the dive into the deep waters of a long university ... Read more >

Poverty in Cambodia

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 25 Jan 2009 | Views [4231]

Boat tours in Sihanoukville

CAMBODIA | Friday, 23 Jan 2009 | Views [1722]

The past two days here in Sihanoukville have been fantastic. Yesterday I went on a boat tour of the Ream National Park. The tour started with breakfast by the beach at 7am. I sat and watched the cafe's staff set up for their busy ... Read more >


CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 20 Jan 2009 | Views [668]

I didn't realise how much I missed the beach until I got to Sihanoukville. Today I woke up and bounded straight down to the beach. I walked along the entire length of Serendipity Beach; stopping every now and again to wade in the calm crystal blue ... Read more >

18/01/2009 We've been in Phenom Penn for several days now and I've really enjoyed it. We arrived from Battembang by bus on the 16th and that evening Greg, Charlie and I went out for dinner and then out drinking in the city. We started at the famous ... Read more >

The Boat to Battembang

CAMBODIA | Thursday, 15 Jan 2009 | Views [1267]

15/01/2009 The boat ride to Battembang was incredible and I'm so glad that I did it. I had heard mixed reviews - some saying it was fantastic and others saying the boat had to turn around and head back to Siem Reap after a few hours.  I woke up at ... Read more >

Bad Medicine

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 14 Jan 2009 | Views [770] | Comments [3]

So my hostel lost some of my clothes. Two shirts and some socks. Then when I told them I wanted to look for them my self they said I had probably not put them in the laundry bag and laughed at me. I felt so angry and it wasn't even about the clothes.... Read more >

The Beautiful Temples of Angkor

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 13 Jan 2009 | Views [820] | Comments [3]

Today I went to visit the beautiful temples of Angkor just outside of the city of Siem Reap. I organised a tuk tuk through my guesthouse and it was only 12USD for the whole day. I woke early and went down stairs for breakfast. My guesthouse is full ... Read more >

From Laos to Cambodia

CAMBODIA | Monday, 12 Jan 2009 | Views [672]

My last few days in Luang Prabang and indeed in Laos were restful and relaxing. All I did was stroll around the quiet town and drink banana shakes by the Mekong. Lyb and Graeme left to go further up north in Laos and then across to Thailand so I made ... Read more >

Yoga at Dharamma

LAOS | Tuesday, 6 Jan 2009 | Views [2044] | Comments [6]

This morning I woke up before dawn: showered, dressed and then walked down to the Dharamma massage and yoga center for my early morning yoga class by the lily ponds. The teacher was Meena; a tiny Thai woman with a broad smile and a soft, reassuring ... Read more >

Tonic for the Soul

LAOS | Sunday, 4 Jan 2009 | Views [666]

An Australian woman I met in Vang Vieng told me she was coming to Luang Prabang because she had heard it described as ‘tonic for the soul’. I’ve been here for less that 24hrs now and I have to say she is right. Luang Prabang is magical. ... Read more >

New Years Eve

LAOS | Saturday, 3 Jan 2009 | Views [643]

New Years Eve in Vang Vieng didn't really meet my probably over enthusiastic expectations. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect, but I wanted to at least have fun. It ended up just being more like a high school dance with young drunk people everywhere ... Read more >

Tubing in Vang Vieng

LAOS | Friday, 2 Jan 2009 | Views [2602] | Comments [8]

The last few days have been unbelievable to say the least. I arrived on Monday and had a good night out having a couple of beers with a few other backpackers. And on Tuesday Lyb, Graeme and I decided to do the obligatory Vang Vieng tourist activity ... Read more >

I Can Breath Again!

LAOS | Sunday, 28 Dec 2008 | Views [813] | Comments [2]

After a sleepless night in the hotel from hell complete with constant airplane noise and a never ending supply of mosquitoes, I went back to the airport to wait for my flight to Laos. ROUND TWO! The first thing I did was get some more cash and ... Read more >

Late to Laos

VIETNAM | Sunday, 28 Dec 2008 | Views [1267]

After a terrible mix up with flight times, I am now leaving for Laos tomorrow and I have to spend the night in a dreadful airport hotel. Due to my current predicament, the rain and a newly contracted flu, I am feeling less than happy. I did well ... Read more >
