Flew into Guatemala City and moved on again as soon as possible to Antigua, a beautiful colonial town reminiscent of Trinidad in Cuba, which I had just left. Devestating earthquakes in the region have left the majestic colonial houses interspersed wit...

Wow, what a place. I think I have found my spiritual home. The place is a shrine to music and dance (salsa, of course), every street cafe, bar and restaurant has a live band and every house has the radio blaring and everywhere, whatever time will be ...

Mad dash through Sumatra as had less than a week before my unplanned trip to New Zealand so decided to go and see the Orangutangs at the rehabilitation centre in Bukit Lawang. Once again, brave the leech-infested jungle in search of the animals, thoug...

With only one day here, I decided to explore the Krabi coast by sea on a kayak, paddling through mango groves and past steep limestone cliffs. In the afternoon, hired a boat to take us to James Bond Island where they filmed Man with the Golden Gun, ...

While the Laos National Museum in Vientiane is full of black and white photographs depicting the 'French colonialists deceiving the Lao people into false independence and barbarous slavery' at least they gave them one thing - fantastic bakeries serving...

. . well, apparently, though really haven't seen very many, which was disappointing, though I got over it. Anyway, this has been a fleeting visit, only 2 days. I did a fantastic 4hr hike along the Great Wall. The weather was gorgeous and the views ...
