Hanoi --> Ko Samui
Time top wrap up this little account of my Asian adventures and a few antics on the last section of my trip before heading home. I’ll try and keep this brief, not another 3000+ word rock-stomper, I promise. Why use 10 words when you can use 100, that’s my philosophy. ;)
Car chases and chasing cars…
In my last post - Mr Saigon: Good Evening, Vietnam - I spoke about the great opening and high hopes I had for this country. However, the further north I went, the further 'south' my experiences went. Why? Let's find out!
Nha Trang was my first stop after Ho Chi
So, on to Vietnam and the first of a 2-parter. We left off in Cambodia last time… how did I fare here? Well, let's just say it was a game of 2 halves!
I arrived in Ho Chi Minh City (largest city in Vietnam) following a fairly straightforward bus journey and border crossing from Cambodia.
It’s not long since people came back bright eyed and bushy tailed from an Asian adventure that included the phenomenal experience that is SteemFest. I wasn’t able to attend this year’s Thailand extravaganza, although I was fortunate enough to be in amongst it at SF2 two years back in the great Port
Continuing with some of my Asian antics, having left off last time with Thai Tales #4: The Land of Rai Smiles & White Tiles, and now we discuss, Cambodia!

The purpose of my little jaun

Chiang Mai, Thailand
I’m still in Chiang Mai. Just moved into a new guest house last night called Mojito House… I was sold on the name to be honest ;). It’s not bad, not the best but will certainly do nicely. I’ll probably do a little review of some of th
Here's the first of a series of articles during a trip to south-east Asia. Couldn't make it back for the infamous SteemFest (AKA ThaiFest!) this year but a fine place to visit and I'll be back before long I'm sure…
The opening gambit…
I’m now sat in a rather pl
Who’s the quirky guy who’s quick with a joke and meticulously serves each coffee?
Who’s that grinning girl they always pass in the corridor, in and out of rooms keeping them spick and span?
What about the ever chatty receptionist who is married to the head chef (who they never see but go mad for his
Don’t fancy a bus or a boat today, but you do want a super burst of adventure around the island? Well, time to saddle up, sit back and get on ya trike!
Setting off at a very social 11am and lasting 2 hours, this puts paid to the excuses of those not wanting to get up early or commit a large part of
What better way to while away a morning (or afternoon) then kicking back on a boat and drifting along the majestic coastline of Tenerife? That’s exactly how I spent a few hours on a jam-packed weekend…
This 4.5 hour trip with Royal Delfin is a perfect way to relax and take in some more of what this
