Long route home Our trip all the way home, trying to catch no planes and stay on the ground like civilised people. It's taking us via India all the way to Europe from Japan, the furthest of the Far East...

Keeping place

THAILAND | Friday, 13 Aug 2010 | Views [523]

At first, the transformation in the scenery was dramatic - the jagged hills and verdant forests of Japan gave way to the open plains of north China and as we barrelled down through that vast country more and more lush greenery started to develop around ... Read more >

Other People Are Hell

CAMBODIA | Thursday, 12 Aug 2010 | Views [310]

It's been great watching how the people change as we move from region to region, slowly shifting from Chinese influence to Indian.  The crossing from Japan to China was the longest and appropriately marked the biggest cutural shift.  Politeness and ... Read more >

Coming up to the end of South East Asia and the closing of a chapter in our trip we've decided to do some special updates comparing things and talk about the trip itself rather than a simple account of how we spend our lives...this first one takes the ... Read more >

One of the joys of travelling is to be able to revel in being in a jungle or on a remote island, and then move on before the lack of electricity, road signs, hot water or ATMs spoils the fun.  For us, KL was a time of plague and pestilance (well, the ... Read more >

Taman Negara We caught a boat off the Perhentians, then a taxi from Kuala Besut to Tanah Merah, which was viewed with some surprise by our guesthouse's owners, who thought it odd to go to "really the middle of nowhere".  First impressions ... Read more >

Taking the P

MALAYSIA | Thursday, 5 Aug 2010 | Views [1446]

The passengers on the mini-bus to Penang were a mixed bag, some talkative travellers, not so talkative locals and crazy bus driver. 10 baht each for 'overtime' at the border, and we were in Malaysia! Penang was a real treat - not just as an escape ... Read more >

Here it is!  Paradise by the onboard lights of the overnight train!  South Thailand where beauty is affordable and easy.  Beautiful islands with corals ringing them and white sand gracing their surfaces.  Well, after a pretty grim train journey with ... Read more >

Banging in and out of Bangkok

THAILAND | Thursday, 22 Jul 2010 | Views [1002] | Comments [2]

Pattaya is the sleaze capital of Thailand - it's worse than a EU stag do destination: this is where old men retire to drink cheap beer and find a young Thai lady. Lots of shaved (or grey) heads, tatoos and sun burns. Oli had more hair than all the ... Read more >

After Snookyville it came as somewhat of a relief to head into somewhere a bit more Cambodian.  Phnom Penh was a hell of a place to arrive - hot, sticky and very smelly.  We trudged past the moto remarques (tuktuks) and made our way towards one then ... Read more >

From Ha Tien, we had the bus all to ourselves. After all the warnings of scams and 'extras', the border crossing to Cambodia was pretty simple. We paid $1 for the pleasure of filling out a 'medical check' form, and climbed aboard the waiting bus on ... Read more >

We miss Saigon

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 14 Jul 2010 | Views [501]

We said nha thanks to Nha Trang in the end.  It was a party town where we couldn't find the party - and when we did it was crap.  Crazy Kim's bar was a strange place, but with much-appreciated English commentary for the WC.  The eponymous owner is ... Read more >
