Able Tasman coastal kayaking!

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 20 May 2008 | Views [7067]

This morning I was picked up by one of the staff members of the Kiwi Kayaking company based in Marahau, in their own car, as they live in the village I was staying in. I was the only pick up from here, so it made sense! The rest of the people on the ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 25 Apr 2008 | Views [2280] | Comments [1]

My tour from Adelaide to Alice springs turned out to be a fantastic week. As I said previously, I couldn't get on a tour before Friday the 18th, which was disappointing as I was bored with Adelaide, but it turned out to be so lucky as the group of people ... Read more >

Blue Mountains and drunken Spaniards!!

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 3 Apr 2008 | Views [2559] | 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 >

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 >

Erawan falls

THAILAND | Friday, 15 Feb 2008 | Views [3341] | Comments [2]

I toyed with the idea of hiring a moped or using the standard bus to go to see Erawan falls today , but in the end plumped for a tour package. Once we arrived at the falls, it was clear that this was a much better choice, as the standard bus stops at ... Read more >

On Monday in Bangkok I treated myself to a cinema visit at the immense Paragon Plaza in the downtown area. This place puts American malls to shame, it is mahuuuuusive! I watched Cloverfield on the Imax screen... it was pretty cool. I'm going back ... Read more >
