backroads of north-western Thailand

backroads of north-western Thailand

Posted from Samoeng, Chiang Mai, Thailand. When in Thailand one must go north. The beaches are great, so I’ve heard, but overly touristy. If one wants to get a real feeling for Thailand’s culture and, in some ways, its past, one must leave the comforts of over-priced food and lodging for the wilderness of the […]

Sapa to Luang Pragbang – the rocky road

Sapa to Luang Pragbang – the rocky road

Posted from Namon, Oudomxay, Laos. Sapa to Dien Bien Phu The bus from Sapa to Dien Bein Phu is 250,000 VND. It’s a mini-van. The journey is a little over 300km and can take anywhere from eight to 12 hours. Luckily my trip only took about eight hours (I’m still getting the racecar-driver-wannabes.) We had […]

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 […]

hello Bangkok

hello Bangkok

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand. From the taxi to my friend’s apartment I make a few assessments about this metropolis. First, it looks a lot like any other big city I’ve been too – billboards line the highway, there’s over and under passes and there’s lots of lights twinkling far off into the horizon. Second, […]

First glimpse of Fiji

First glimpse of Fiji

Posted from Nadi, Western Division, Fiji. It was still dark when I woke up. The house was quiet. Finally. But it was 5 a.m. My landlady and her husband had returned from Australia the day before after two and a half weeks of watching her son’s children whilst he was away in Germany with his […]

rainy days … again

rainy days … again

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. The pavement is wet and I just know there’s a trail of dirt up the back of my shorts. Great. Raindrops are clinging to the lenses of my sunnys, but I have a hope it can’t rain the whole bike-ride to work. Why would I be going to work […]

I had been getting used to letting spiders live

I had been getting used to letting spiders live

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. Today, for the very first time, a White Tail crossed my path. I was outside in the Hammock sunning myself and playing solitaire on my laptop, despite the risk to my screen, when the little fucker came creeping up my computer desk/wooden foldout chair. I have been told that […]

I think I’m in paradise

I think I’m in paradise

Posted from Hope, Tasman, New Zealand. The trip from Franz Josef to Motueka was kind of uneventful, minus the crazy bus driver who kept forgetting his seatbelt was still on when he went to leave the bus to pick up a passenger. There was also the time he forgot to close the luggage door before […]

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 […]
