Krystal & Rhys Go to Thailand!

THAILAND | Thursday, 30 Aug 2012 | Views [387]

Waiting at Sydney Airport, July 11, 2012, with far too much time on our hands, I start to panic that this trip should have been booked by a travel agent who knew what to do. My second trip internationally, first to a country with a first language ... Read more >


Crazy India

INDIA | Wednesday, 15 Aug 2012 | Views [612]

India is one country which has always been on my list of countries ‘not to visit’. Reason due to  hearing about the horror stories of extreme food poisoning, the poverty, beggars, pollution, crowds and the 1001 parasites which infest your ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 3 Aug 2012 | Views [459]

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 31 May 2012 | Views [427]

All that glitters is not Gold.

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 23 Mar 2012 | Views [732]

I love the tropics. That hot stinking humidity that envelops every pore on your body. That wafting scent of thickness that only South East Asia can produce with muggy resolve. It was an ordinary night, so ordinary that it was abnormal. That strange ... Read more >

I want nobody nobody but you! [clap clap] I want nobody but you! [clap clap]

PHILIPPINES | Monday, 19 Dec 2011 | Views [693] | Video

When the all-girl Korean band Wondergirls released there soon-to-be pop classic Nobody in 2009, somehow I doubt they’d envisage it would become a pole dancing anthem. Just like marvelling at the Borobudur Temples in Java, watching the ... Read more >
