NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 12 Jun 2008 | Views [4373] | Comments [2]

This morning I was booked to do the last crazy thing not yet done in this town... namely the Shotover Canyon Swing. Pretty simple... big canyon, lots of wires, two ropes and a victim... it is a 60 meter freefall into the 109 meter deep canyon and once ... Read more >

Nevis Bungy!!

NEW ZEALAND | Wednesday, 11 Jun 2008 | Views [3370]

The Nevis bungy before today was something that I still held some fear for. The bridge bungy was a lot of fun, and there were no big dramas making the jump, but this one is 134 meters from a pod suspended by cables over a massive canyon and river. It ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 10 Jun 2008 | Views [13033] | Comments [1]

Waking up this morning, the first thing I did was take a look at the sky, which was cloud free and a beautiful shade of blue! Yes! The receptionist at the hostel called NZ Skydiving for me to check that we were on, and the news was good! I chucked breakfast ... Read more >

After the drive back up to Queenstown, including a few obligatory stop offs to admire the stunning scenery, we were checked into the YHA and readying for a walk up to the Gondola on the hill near town. The gondola is pretty steep and rises up over 400 ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 3 Jun 2008 | Views [1464] | Comments [2]

Unfortunately I did not have a good nights sleep, with the cold setting in nicely and waking up shivering cold about 4am and not being able to get back to sleep properly, I rose from my pit around eight and forced some breakfast past my sore throat. ... Read more >

Rotorua Skyline Rides

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 10 May 2008 | Views [2296]

Today I drove across to Rotorua in the pouring rain. It did not stop ALL day and night, so I camped, updated my blog from the week I spent with Ringo and chilled watching the second Lord of the Rings film with a nice drop of local red purchased earlier ... Read more >

Blue Mountains and drunken Spaniards!!

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 3 Apr 2008 | Views [2426] | Comments [4]

The morning didn't go entirely as planned... I was rudely awoken at 5:45am, and quite possibly in the rudest way. Ever. Yet more joys of shared dorms I guess... although this story will be hard to beat! The Spaniard in the bunk above mine hadn't spoken ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 2 Apr 2008 | Views [4603] | Comments [1]

I slept very well and slept through most of the people in my dorm coming and going, but still felt a bit tired, even after a shower! I had a cheapo breakfast of cereals and toast in the cafe next to the hostel and got the train to Circular Quay, from ... Read more >

My last day on Koh Lanta was excellent, first off I went to a Thai Cookery school that I'd spotted whilst out driving around the island on my scooter the day before. The kitchen looked really nice and the guy that ran it was superb. An added bonus was ... Read more >

Malaysian Grand Prix!

MALAYSIA | Sunday, 23 Mar 2008 | Views [3156]

On Saturday morning I could hardly contain myself I was so excited about the F1! I awoke ten minutes before my alarm after a stupendously good sleep in a proper bed, which was so nice after the weeks of uber-budget accommodation I'd gotten used to! I ... Read more >

Mount Kinabalu!!

MALAYSIA | Monday, 17 Mar 2008 | Views [6363] | Comments [8]

This weekend I went and did something completely different! I like the outdoors, and am a reasonably sporty person (and not terribly unfit), but for the last couple of years I have been one lazy mofo (hence the big belly and round face you all know and ... Read more >

(You may have to excuse excessive rambling and miss spelling in this entry, as since this afternoons activities, I have had two very large cocktails and 4 large beers... not to mention the fooking hot stir fry which is still burning my lips!) This afternoon, ... Read more >
