silk city II

VIETNAM | Saturday, 24 Jul 2010 | Views [242]

Hoi An is a giant silk tailor shop, everyone gets as much tailored as they can carry, because it's cheap and it's tradition.It is not however necessarily very good. Alternative activities include renting motorbikes to go to ancient ruins, that are ... Read more >

one bomb may ruin a whole day

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 21 Jul 2010 | Views [266]

We were superheroes in Nha Trang? Now we turned into viscious beach dragons! Terrorizing french families on the far superior beach in Hoi An, the city of crazy silk tailors. The whole city seems to be one giant tailor shop and among us there are quite ... Read more >

Good morning, Vietnam.

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 20 Jul 2010 | Views [318]

It's 10:30 AM, day 5 in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. Socialist in name only, seeing as it has the most business-minded people we've seen on this trip so far, but the hammer-and-sickle banners all around Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City) make for an ... Read more >

Fire and water

VIETNAM | Monday, 19 Jul 2010 | Views [254]

Nha Trang was a beautiful place and then they built those things, so it takes some skill in overlooking atrocious pink monuments and Holywood-type island labels. The sand glows during the day and at night they have a campfire on the beach, which we ... Read more >

Vietnam, here we come!

VIETNAM | Sunday, 18 Jul 2010 | Views [283]

So, we made it to Vietnam! After just one day in Saigon, a wet and colorful place with thousands of motorbikes and quite a bit of old-fashioned communist propaganda, we took the night bus to Nha Trang. I woke up this morning after some dizzy sleep ... Read more >

Phnom Penh

CAMBODIA | Thursday, 15 Jul 2010 | Views [228]

Tomorrow we have a rather morbid schedule and I probably won't write or at least I won't write about today so here's as much as I can think of right now. We arrived today in Phnom Penh. It's an unbelievably lively, friendly city and even if a lot of ... Read more >

A glimpse of the poor Cambodia

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 13 Jul 2010 | Views [333]

Near the northern end of Tonle Sap lake, some 15 kilometers south of the lively and touristy Siem Reap is Floating Village. It should really be called Floating Town, because about 6,000 people of three different denominations live in improvised houses ... Read more >

Angkor Wat?

CAMBODIA | Monday, 12 Jul 2010 | Views [494] | Comments [2]

That's right, third day in Cambodia and second cycling around Angkor. And we finally saw Angkor Wat today. In fact, me and Lisa hid when the guards were kicking everyone out (we went on a ledge behind a corner and no, it wasn't dangerous cause there ... Read more >

Ankor Wat - There be ruins

CAMBODIA | Monday, 12 Jul 2010 | Views [235] | Comments [1]

Arrrr! There be awesome ruins, scurvy monkeys that jump on the back of those whome they reckognize as their kin, nice natives and tasty sticky rice! This be a fine place to cycle around like a landlubber! -Nora-

Bangkok, day 2

THAILAND | Friday, 9 Jul 2010 | Views [292] | Comments [1]

The Bangkok sex district was an incredibly depressing experience. I guess I had unrealistic expectations, brought up on Dita Von Teese and Suicide Girls but I imagined strippers that really enjoy theselves and play with the audience and go crazy because ... Read more >

Bangkok, day 1

THAILAND | Thursday, 8 Jul 2010 | Views [331]

SO, after landing in the early morning we had a long exhausting day of debauchery. Well, not fully since we still haven't seen the sin city side of Bangkok, but the time for this will come. I guess it's easy enough to find descriptions of this place ... Read more >

Delhi airport

INDIA | Wednesday, 7 Jul 2010 | Views [229]

Oh man, what did we actually think when booking a flight with a 14 hour stopover in Delhi? Maybe that we can get a short-term visa on arrival and have a look at the city? Well, that turned out to be impossible. Or maybe that at least we can use the ... Read more >

Sails up!

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 5 Jul 2010 | Views [297] | Comments [1]

Before setting off from Warsaw I did the unspeakable. Ignoring my mathematician's self mocking me relentlessly I took a hint from voodoo sages and left a bottle of rum at a graveyard for good karma. So, fully vaccinated and with the spirits on my side ... Read more >
