As I was thinking about where to write about next, I couldn't go past one of my favourite countries to date, a country that I have visited many times for one reason or another. Living half my life in Australia meant countries like Thailand were on our door step, readily accessible for the next intrepid … Continue reading Destination: Koh Samui, Thailand
I'll blend a couple of days together for this entry as not much was going. Another rainy and volatile day. Took the kayak out for the sole hour of sun. Perfect timing, Chris, that was quickly jinxed by applying sunscreen after getting back in. My time here at Caye Caulker has run its course. So … Continue reading Belize Diaries – Day 8 & 9
Not really much to share today in the way of adventuring. As a rule so far, the weather has given us respite starting at around mid morning towards the middle of the day. Just some people watching with a lazy beer and coconut to pass the time while watching a girl serve a volleyball into … Continue reading Belize Diaries – Day 7

It's only after you move away, relocate to … Continue reading Colours of the World: Every Country has a Unique Shade
Just like the trip to Nusa Lembongan started, with a travel sick boat ride, the same process was repeated on the return journey to Bali. Don't worry, I was fine. I wanted to get rid of my rupiah before jetting back to work so purchasing beer at 10 am was about a good a way as any to get rid of my currency. My traveling companion, things weren't so good.
For a boy, I don't think this is something we naturally, well, do. You won't find any evidence of my inner thoughts and desires when I was learning where babies come from and what girls are. Nope. Not me. To me it flew in the face of (my perception of) masculinity and was strictly reserved … Continue reading The Power of keeping a Travel Journal
