Munich: and so much beer

Munich: and so much beer

Posted from Munich, Bavaria, Germany. I’ve been planning on visiting Germany for years, but I could never get out of the airport. I’d have connecting flights in Hamburg, Munich, orFrankfurt, but that’s all the interaction I’d get with this country. But then the opportunity presented itself. Following a trip to Egypt, which you can read […]

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 […]

Stockholm and expensive laundry

Stockholm and expensive laundry

Posted from Stockholm, Stockholm County, Sweden. The train ride from Oslo to Stockholm is only about five hours. It’s not exactly express, but that’s pretty good for a big carriage on wheels. The only complaint I have with train travel in Scandinavia is it can be expensive if you don’t book at least three months […]

visiting Oslo and long lost friends

visiting Oslo and long lost friends

Posted from Oslo, Oslo, Norway. I’d always wanted to visit Oslo, but I never really had a reason, until contact what re-established with a long lost friend. You know that saying – Some people enter your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime? What if they enter periodically, on a 14-year cycle? The […]

Huddersfield and the family

Huddersfield and the family

Posted from Huddersfield, England, United Kingdom. From the great big city of London, departing from historic Kings Cross Station – fabled by the stories of Harry Potter, I travelled north to Huddersfield, Yorkshire to visit relatives I hadn’t seen in some 14 years. What I learned about this trip was it doesn’t matter how long […]

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 […]

onward to Koh Tao

onward to Koh Tao

Posted from Mueang Chumphon, Chumphon, Thailand. The train station in Hua Hin is rather beautiful. On site there’s two antique rail cars that act as a museum of sorts giving the place a character I haven’t seen yet at a train station in Thailand. The station is painted in vibrant colours and has a wide-open […]

night train – Chiang Mai to Bangkok

night train – Chiang Mai to Bangkok

Posted from Mueang Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai, Thailand.   You’d think it would be easy to sleep on a train. You’d think. But when that train goes down a rail-line built by the Thais, it’s not gonna happen. My journey starts with a Songthew ride to the train station to buy a ticket. There are […]

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 […]
