Bye bye China

Saturday, 7 Nov 2009 | Views [365] | Comments [1]

Flying out of China tomorrow, visa expires on the 17th, so I gotta go whether I want to or not.  Three months has gone extremely quickly, but I'm ready to get off the ride now. :)   The last little while has seen: Beijing - great, ended up staying ... Read more >

New plan!

Thursday, 29 Oct 2009 | Views [417]

Well, Near as I can tell, the Russians don't want me stinking up their country. That's the only reason I can think of for their stupid visa rules. The original plan was to get my Russian visa in Hong Kong - and it would've worked similarly ... Read more >

Mt Qomalangma!

Friday, 9 Oct 2009 | Views [477]

Back in Chengdu now after a week long group tour in Tibet. The tour was surprisingly good, as far as those kind of things go - really good group of people on the tour, which is always the most important thing. There are many things left in the world ... Read more >

Next up - Tibet!

Wednesday, 30 Sep 2009 | Views [288] | Comments [1]

Tiger Leaping Gorge was great, everything everyone said it would be. The gorge hiking trail is 20km long with 1km ascent and an equal descent.  That makes it pretty much exactly 1/5th of the Kokoda track. I decided to do the hike with my pack instead ... Read more >

In Dali, progressing Gorgeward

Thursday, 17 Sep 2009 | Views [263]

In Dali at the moment, it's a nice little place. Though you know you're in a tourist town when the trash bins on the street are shaped like little pagodas - not tacky at all. From here on to Lijiang and then, finally, Tiger Leaping Gorge. Organising ... Read more >

Beer Fish!

Sunday, 6 Sep 2009 | Views [411]

Beer Fish be the bomb!  The famous Yangshuo Beer Fish is as good as they say.  I am going to learn to cook it tomorrow, then I am going to cook it at home (wherever THAT ends up being) with properly filleted fish and it will be the best thing EVER.... Read more >

Too tired to make an update right now. But, because certain people seemed not to be jealous enough, I decided to post this photo of me sitting in the bar on top of my hostel. Also, I am engaged now. I was the best (read: only) singer on my bamboo ... Read more >

Guilin is quite a nice city, much slower pace than Guangzhou or Hong Kong; almost relaxing, except for the hassle from touts.  I deal with them with a subtle combination of relentless politeness and monstrous stupidity.  Or occasionally I just tell ... Read more >

Oh, yeah, Facebook is blocked in China

Sunday, 30 Aug 2009 | Views [245] | Comments [2]

I forgot about that.  Oh well, I'll figure out a way around it later. For now, I'm in Guangzhou for a quick stopover on my way to Guilin, from where I will probably take a boat down the river to Yangshou and stay there for a while or maybe I'll stay ... Read more >
