Koh Mak – the secret paradise

Koh Mak – the secret paradise

Posted from Ko Mak, Trat, Thailand. When a traveler comes across something special, like a magical or idyllic place unspoiled by the riggers of tourism and commercialism, especially in Thailand, they get very excited. Welcome to Koh Mak. The true quest of a serious traveler is to discover such a place. To tell only those […]

expensive Singapore

Posted from Singapore. Tell someone you’re going to Singapore and they will immediately retort some guffawed remark about how strict their laws are or how expensive it is. Granted – I’ve heard of this too, but let’s face it – it’s an urban center. I saw two people spit whilst walking down the street – […]

kuala lumpur

Posted from Cheras, Selangor, Malaysia. I have been wanting to go to Kuala Lumpur for years, a desire that was glamourized by my BASE jumping friends and their Petronas Towers expeditions. I have zero desire to jump off them, but it was a mythical land far far away I only knew by video that I […]

low season in Koh Lanta

low season in Koh Lanta

Posted from Ko Lanta, Krabi, Thailand. About a two-hour ferry ride from Ao Nang lies Koh Lanta, a seemingly unspoiled island in Thailand’s Andaman Sea.

bandon hosptial Koh Samui (graphic content)

Posted from Ko Samui, Surat Thani, Thailand. Drunk people do stupid things. Never a truer statement existed. And I am one of those stupid drunks. I’m not going to go into too much detail, though I’m sure my family would like to know the whole sordid story. There was an open doorway, and this guy […]

Vientiane – good-bye Laos

Vientiane – good-bye Laos

Posted from Vientiane, Vientiane Prefecture, Laos. We pulled into Vientiane a good three hours after leaving Vang Vieng. The ticket was 40,000 Kip and it was on the best bus I’ve been on since Cambodia. It was clean and had aircon, though my vent was broken and just pummeled cold air on me the entire […]

Kampot to Kep and the crab market

Posted from Kep, Krong Kep, Cambodia. Tonight I am in Kep sleeping in the most amazing Bungalow I have ever slept in. But first I need to tell the tale. I woke up with diarrhea and some stomach pain. Fuck. I had already booked a ticket to Kampot, so I thought quickly and concluded drugs […]

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 […]
