magical Egypt

magical Egypt

Posted from Giza Governorate, Egypt. We were packed into the van, glued to the windows like children at a candy shop. Our tour leader, Islam (yes, that’s his name,) was giving us advice and information about what would happen and how things work, but it was difficult to pay attention. The medley of traffic was […]

three days in Rome

three days in Rome

Posted from Roma, Lazio, Italy. Three days in Rome? That’s it? The spring of 2016 was very tumultuous, like off-the-hook upside-down life-changing crazy. If I were any other person I may have spent a lot of that time in bed trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my life, but I […]

liveaboard to Richelieu Rock

liveaboard to Richelieu Rock

Richelieu Rock. That’s what I’d heard. That’s what they said. If you’re a diver in Thailand, that’s the place you need to see. And so began my quest to find the right liveaboard to see this and a few other sites in the Andaman Sea – the Similan Islands, including Koh Bon and Koh Tachai. […]

quiet Koh Tao (and I saw a whale shark!)

quiet Koh Tao (and I saw a whale shark!)

From Bangkok’s Hualamphong Train Station I caught the #85 train (departs 7:30 p.m.) to Chumphon, securing myself an upper berth and a joint on-going bus (from the train station to the pier) and ferry transfer with the Lomprayah company to Koh Tao for 1,200 Baht. There are buses to Chumphon, but after reading many mixed […]

Milford Sound

Milford Sound

Posted from Milford Sound, Southland, New Zealand. New Zealand never fails to provide when it comes to scenery – and Milford Sound helps this country maintain its title of the most beautiful and special place on earth. Located some 41km northwest of Glenorchy (as the crow flies) – just over the towering Southern Alps, this […]

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? […]

Vector Festival and packing

Vector Festival and packing

Posted from Saint-Rémy, Burgandy, France. Sometimes I think I’m a work-a-holic. I know there’s a few people right now laughing, perhaps gfawing at this idea, seeing as I’ve been traveling for six months, but let me explain. When it comes to work I will work until my fingers bleed. I will work until the skin […]

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. […]

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 […]
