Today I got up nice and early, well 8am early anyway, and went down to the beach for a run and swim session. Ran about half a mile up the beach, which was hard work for a non runner, especially on sand! ;) I then swam back past the point on the beach ... Read more >

Slowing down into this life...

THAILAND | Sunday, 27 Jan 2008 | Views [629] | Comments [1]

I am now getting used to this pace of life, and getting good at it. Soon I will be unable to do basic maths and remember things from yesterday (like Steve is currently ;p). I now have a scooter for a few days, which is fun. It is the best way to get ... Read more >

Went to the Rajdamnoen Stadium in Bangkok via tuktuk to see the Thai Boxing tournament on my last night in Bangkok. I had 'VIP' seats, which they basically sell to tourists, which meant I had front row seats for the event. The rough guide said it ... Read more >

THAILAND | Wednesday, 23 Jan 2008 | Views [950] | Comments [4]

Got up earlier today and went off to go to the Downtown area via the river ferry and skytrain with Chris. The river ferry was excellent, a great breeze and nice and easy to sort out, and amazing value for only 20 pence or so to go the whole length ... Read more >

My last poker fix...

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 17 Jan 2008 | Views [1202]

On the 12th of January I went across to play in what was to be my last poker 'fix' before I travel. Driving over I really couldn't be that bothered, although because it was to be my last game, and it was an APAT game, I was still up for it, I just didn't ... Read more >

Day 5 – Thursday, in Taiwan.

TAIWAN | Friday, 27 Jul 2007 | Views [761]

SJ survived the night and still had colour in the morning. This hotel was really comfy, went to bed late, but slept very well… We met for breakfast, which for SJ was just a glass of orange juice. He is still not 100% so it must be a bug. I only had ... Read more >
