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. I’d been to Charles de Gaulle Airport three times, all stop-overs, but I never had the window seat, or the plane took a round-about way on its approach impeding my view of the city of love, and thusly my desire to see […]

kuala lumpur

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

getting robbed in Vietnam

Posted from Hanoi, Vietnam. Hanoi is a tough city, by any accounts. The people who live here even seem somewhat hostile. I get shoved out of the way a lot in Vietnam, but once they see you’re white it’s as thought they go out of their way to head in your direction just so they […]

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 […]

Khmer barbecue!

Khmer barbecue!

Posted from Siem Reap, Siem Reap, Cambodia. Day 9 Having decided that I’d had enough temples to last me at least a few more weeks, I decided to take the day to chill out in my hostel and try to find a place to stay in Phnom Penh when I leave the next day. I […]

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 […]
