Vienna

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]

crate day

crate day

Posted from Queenstown, Otago, New Zealand. Is it a holiday? Is it a glorified excuse to abuse alcohol? A remarkable journey into the vast capabilities of the human body? Is it just a reason to try to consume 9 litres of alcohol in one day? Or an excuse to be a bloody idiot all day? […]

back to Canada

back to Canada

Posted from Farnham, Quebec, Canada. After an overnight bus ride where a teenage boy kept falling asleep on my shoulder, I got to spend eight exhausting and terribly boring hours in Orly Airport before I finally got on my Corsair Flight and made my way from Paris to Montreal. There really is nothing to do […]

Midsommar boogie

Midsommar boogie

Posted from Halmstad, Halland County, Sweden. There’s probably no place better in the world to be than in Sweden for Midsommar. To the Swedes this holiday, which lies in and around the summer solstice, is more important than Christmas and New Years. At least that’s the gist I got. People have the day off work. […]

Paris, sing me a song

Paris, sing me a song

Posted from Paris, Île-de-France, France. My whole life I’ve wanted to see Paris.

Koh Mook

Koh Mook

Posted from Kantang, Trang, Thailand. My ferry from Koh Lanta to Koh Mook took three hours and cost 500 Baht, which isn’t bad considering it was low season and I was quite certain a storm was going to slam into us during the crossing lengthening my trip considerably. In two weeks the ferries stop operating […]

Koh Phangan – sans full moon

Koh Phangan – sans full moon

Posted from Ko Pha-ngan, Surat Thani, Thailand. This is going to be a short post. After a very wonderful week in Koh Tao I decided it was time to move on to the next island on the east coast of Thailand – Koh Phangan. This island is synonymous with The Full Moon Party, but that […]

Chúc mừng năm mới (Happy New Year)

Chúc mừng năm mới (Happy New Year)

I had no clue about Tet when I started to plan my route through Southeast Asia. The lunar new year – also known as the Chinese New Year – happens in January or February – the time when most of us Westerners leave our snow-torn countries for the warmth of tropical and cheap locations. In […]
