PUSHKAR

INDIA | Tuesday, 6 Mar 2012 | Views [257]

If I had it to do all over again, I think I would have bypassed Jaipur and spent more time (and money) in Pushkar. I really got the sense of being in Rajasthan here, and though there are many tantalizing shops, I found that the merchants weren't ... Read more >


JAIPUR

INDIA | Thursday, 1 Mar 2012 | Views [251]

I had trouble securing a seat on a train to Agra to see the Taj, so I changed my plan and decided to just fly on to Rajasthan. Jaipur seemed quite different than anything I'd seen in India before; vastly different from Varanasi! It was really ... Read more >


VARANASI

INDIA | Thursday, 1 Mar 2012 | Views [391]

I spent 3 nights/2 days in Bodhgaya then caught a train to Varanasi. This time I reserved a room in advance - it was a good thing I did because I arrived during a festival and again, most of the guesthouses were full. The streets were closed ... Read more >


BODHGAYA

INDIA | Thursday, 1 Mar 2012 | Views [270]

I decided to catch a plane out of Kolkata and go to Bodhgaya - I only have a basic route etched out, but nothing reserved or planned so I am basically arranging things a day or two in advance. I was hoping Bodhagaya would be a place of respite, ... Read more >


KOLKATA

INDIA | Thursday, 1 Mar 2012 | Views [352]

I arrived in India February 8th, first stop Kolkata. I had planned my route through India long before I arrived - I based the path mostly on weather and ease of travel since I didn't want to have to backtrack. I was also thinking that I'd be volunteering ... Read more >

Udon Thani, Thailand

THAILAND | Friday, 10 Feb 2012 | Views [1173]

I was hoping to just hang out in Luang Prabang for a few weeks and wait for my fractured wrist to heal, but after about a week it became apparent that there was a problem. So I caught a bus back to Vientiane and then crossed over the border into ... Read more >

Luang Prabang

LAOS | Tuesday, 24 Jan 2012 | Views [465] | Comments [1]

I arrived in Luang Prabang about 9 days ago - this is an enchanting city, beautiful and green with interesting little shops, cafes, bookstores, bars and restaurants tucked into every leafy corner. Like Vientiane, there is an obvious French/international ... Read more >

Vientiane

LAOS | Friday, 13 Jan 2012 | Views [401]

I crossed the border from Cambodia into Laos via the Don Kralor border - again, as in crossing from Vietnam to Cambodia, I took a bus (booked through the guesthouse) and provided the attendant with my passport, 1 passport photo and the fees and ... Read more >

Ban Lung

CAMBODIA | Friday, 13 Jan 2012 | Views [446]

Ban Lung sounded interesting because of the jungle trekking opportunities; since it wasn't far from Kratie I decided to go there ($6 by bus). It isn't much of a town really, dusty and small - there is a large market, several guesthouses to choose ... Read more >


Kratie

CAMBODIA | Friday, 13 Jan 2012 | Views [412]

I went to Kratie because it was an easy stop on my way to the border, and I wanted to see the endangered Irrawaddy dolphins. Kratie wasn't much of a town, but it was low-key and I rented a bike to see the countryside and climbed another mountain ... Read more >

Siem Reap

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 11 Jan 2012 | Views [456]

My first encounter with Siem Reap was a bumpy ride on the back of a motorcycle to my guesthouse after getting off the boat from Battambang. It was a clay road with huge potholes; I was really imagining Siem Reap to be hugely developed due to the ... Read more >


Riverboat ride from Battambang to Siem Reap

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 11 Jan 2012 | Views [623]

I decided to get to Siem Reap via a riverboat on the Tonle Sap. The trip takes about 7 hours from Battambang - and is a fantastic journey, a birds-eye view of real life on the river. This isn't something for the tourists - you see the real Cambodia ... Read more >


Battambang

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 11 Jan 2012 | Views [475]

I caught a mini-bus to Battambang - packed as full as possible (9 seats, 22 people)and bathroom breaks were stops in bushy fields. Battambang is small and dusty but comfortable, no hard sells and a few convenient, really good places to eat. There ... Read more >
