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 […]

the grand sites of Rome

the grand sites of Rome

Posted from Rome, Lazio, Italy. My final day in the Eternal City was reserved for seeing the grand sites of Rome. It was early May, 24 degrees, and the sun was ever so bold. The weather was holding out perfectly for more walking. And walk I did, already clocking some 48,000 steps on my Vivofit the past two […]

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. […]

expensive Singapore

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 – […]

other things about Koh Samui

other things about Koh Samui

Posted from Ko Samui, Surat Thani, Thailand. The largest of the islands off the east coast of Thailand is Koh Samui, and it’s also the most overrun. I couldn’t discern this from the moment I arrived, as the pier my Songserm ferry boat landed at was out of the way and a far cry from […]

Ha Long Bay

Ha Long Bay

Posted from Hai Phong, Vietnam.   Choosing a company to book a Ha Long Bay Cruise with is an arduous task. There are far too many scams in Hanoi and online that it’s difficult to know the real deal or if you’re getting a deal. The hostel I was at, Hanoi Backpackers, offered a few […]

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 […]

Kampot to Kep and the crab market

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 […]
