Smiling faces while driving on the dirty bumpy  roads!

October 24th 2012, sitting aboard the airbus Airbus 737 Lyon-Istanbul – then the A340 Istanbul- Bangkok… I am finally back on the roads after three months and half working hard in France to save money and building my organization Nepally Dream… Just the time for few days to do my favourite things through the Crazy Thai Capital: drinking few coconut soups and Watermelon Shakes, losing myself in Chinatown, resting along the Mekong and having amazing ...

Flying to Kathmandu from India

One of the lobbies in Delhi International Airport

The journey from India to Nepal (Kathmandu)is best done by plane but there is also the extended but less comfortable route by train and bus dependent upon where you are leaving India from. I was leaving from Delhi and decided on a flight costing approx £60 one way from Delhi International Airport to Kathmandu Tribhuban International Airport. The airport is easily accessed using the new and efficient metro from down town Delhi. An Airport Hotel In my ... Read More »

Paragliding, Pokhara, Nepal – Gallery

Paragliding_Pokhara_Nepal_29

Pokhara, Nepal is arguably the best place in the world to para-glide and the numbers for pilots, schools and companies making it possible to do are numerous. From the launch site above Pokhara you can see the whole of the town and the beautiful Lake Fewa. Gliding high over the lake and surrounding hills/mountains make this a most memorable experience. Tandem flying is so safe and so comfortable...just do it!!! Read More »

Christchurch, New Zealand – Gallery

Christchurch_New_Zealand_40

Christchurch on the south Island of New Zealand was devastated by a severe earthquake in 2011 but these photos were taken prior to this. I was specifically intrigued by the "Autism" monument complete with talking seats and quirky bronze sculptures. Take time to review the inspirational quotes. Around Christchurch you will find wonderful countryside, views and coastline. Parts of NZ feel like going back a little in time but Christchurch is a beautiful place with pretty trams and floral displays. Read More »

Sydney, Australia – Gallery

Sydney_Australial_51

The coastal path out from Sydney takes in a number of beaches and great views including Bondi Beach. The iconic Sydney opera house is definitely worth visiting and it is also an option to scale the Sydney Harbour bridge to take in the great views. One superb place to stop is the swimming pool which is a sea water pool and regularly used for exercise but when the tide comes in you can find yourself swimming with waves crashing over the swimming pool walls!! These pics show that it isn't always sunny in OZ!! Read More »

Waalk around here an marvel wide eyed at the diversity of sights and experiences. Read More »

A Guest post from John O’Connell: This story begins in North Eastern Thailand near a place called Nong khai on the Thai – Laos border, which is ironically where I am writing this story from now. In April 2012, on the advice of a friend, I went to work at Sarnelli house, an orphanage in North Eastern Thailand for children with H.I.V. There we taught the children English and generally kept them entertained and content. ... Read More »

Cattle Work, Australia

They're coming for you!

But that doesn’t matter now, what does matter is letting you all know a bit about what you can expect if taking on cattle work in Australia, whether it be to extend your working holiday visa, for the money or even just for the experience. There ... Read More »

Namabuddha Temple, Nepal – Gallery

Namobuddha_Nepal40

This beautiful and spiritual place is in the Kathmandu valley and a short distance from Panauti. The bus trip to the Buddhist temple and monastery is interesting and sometimes exciting. The relatively new monastery at namabuddha is in such a great position overlooking the surrounding countryside. The paintings by the monks are a joy to behold and are still in the process of being painted on the walls even as worship is in progress. A really wonderful place to visit. It is disrespectful to photograph inside the monastery and so you will have to walk or bus it to the top to witness the beautiful works. Read More »

Delhi, India – Gallery

Delhi_Indial170

This is not JUST a dirty, busy, frenetic, smog filled city...it is also the most fascinating place to explore. A riot of colour and a wealth of culture stemming from the different rulers down to the presence of the British colonials. Read More »
