Roll On Vietnam!!

Ian trying to touch my beard, why? I have no idea!

Today was my second to last day with work at West Coast Liquor and it is only 2 days until Vietnam. It was a bit of a hazy day and it wasn’t too busy so in my mind I was getting psyched for all the things I was about to experience in a country I have always wanted to visit. Pete, the accountant for the company, is a regular visitor to Vietnam and he has ... Read More »

Cottesloe Beach: Part Deux…

Cottesloe beach on a sunny day.

After the whole episode of Scotty acting up (or not as he argues) on the train we walked off onto the platform at Cottesloe station and I was instantly taken back to the time I stood there before during a visit to my brother many years back when I went to stay with him in Fremantle instead of attending my university graduation ;s. I could still remember the route of the walk to the beach ... Read More »

Hostel Review For Perth

DSCF0012

This is by no means going to be a comprehensive hostel review, mainly because we have only actually stayed at 2 so far! The two we have stayed at, or perhaps I should say the misfortune to stay at, are ‘The Rainbow Lodge’ and ‘The Underground Backpackers’ The first thing to note before I do a review is that both hostels come as a shock after having travelled around South East Asia, and that’s not ...

From Perth Airport To The Hostel…Not Asia Prices Anymore!!! :(

vangvieng night scene

After landing and sorting ourselves out to readjust to the fact that we were no longer in Asia we had to figure out what to do for accommodation in Perth for a couple of nights before we headed off to see Ashleigh in Ravensthorpe in the deep south of Western Australia. We couldn’t get any Wi-Fi on our phones at Perth International airport but we did see three spare ‘FREE WIFI’ computers sitting there near ... Read More »

Our Evening In Gili T

IMAG0977

We ended tonight with a rather tame one and took on a watermelon shake in a chilled out beach front bar next to a pool and Jacuzzi with ‘Gladiator’ playing in the background. You gotta love Russell Crowe!! We did the long awaited check of the bank online to realise we had spent slightly more than predicted but no big deal, the memories have been immense. We decided as group to get up for the ... Read More »

Buying Travel Insurance

scott-airport

Right, so the date for leaving is ever closer and the preparation is slowly trickling to a head. Final vaccinations are booked, all be it for the same day I leave at 2pm, followed swiftly by a National Express bus at 3pm from Bristol bus station to Heathrow terminal 3 (National Express routes | Coach Stop Finder). As far as I can tell the only thing that isn’t yet in place (besides a serious lack of ... Read More »

Bangkok Airport

Bangkok Plane

So we have arrived in Bangkok, literally no idea what to expect…armed with no map, no idea of costs and no real sense of how people get around. Much of the issues we faced could’ve been avoided if we just booked a Bangkok hotel online. I looked into some of the online options after this crazy adventure, and I’ve gotta say I was kicking myself when I saw how easy it would’ve been to get ... Read More »

End Of…..

Right, so the date for leaving is ever closer and the preparation is slowly trickling to a head.

As far as I can tell the only thing that isn’t yet in place (besides a serious lack of funds) is travel insurance. I have ... Read More »
