Well, the end is nigh. I arrived in Hong Kong about 3 hours ago. I have just 2 days to explore and conquer. So far, I have walked around the block! Hong Kong is rather... um, erm... colourful.

Not so merry

Uugh. Kuala Lumpur has become the definate low of the trip. There is a definite appeal from the beautiful beaches and hills of Malaysia, but KL is lacking any real gems. The accommodation has been the worst yet. I have been bitten six times since arriving, ... Read more >

The final throes of pa... packing.

JAPAN | Thursday, 20 Dec 2007 | Views [522]

Here I sit. The repositories of my memory have been have been heavily thumbed. But the question still lingers... have I packed everything? I guess the essentials are safely tucked, squeezed and packed, so sleep can come knocking on my door. We ... Read more >

And here it is! Woop woop, another rip-roarin' travel blog; freshly baked and oozing enthusiasm ... optimism ... um, apprehension and a spike of trepidation. We leave in three days.
