Jonker St

Melaka city is a busy little town apparently big on night markets. On the night I arrived there were two happening! One on Jonker St & the other on the street my hostel was on. Firstly I took a walk along the famed Jonker St, apparently renown amongst antique collectors. Jonker St is lined with ...

So it took 24 hours & now I get Kuala Lumpur. I guess I’m like Guinness, I don’t travel well. Plus it takes me time to decompress & acclimatise. I think this is linked to the ageing process. Yuk, ageing. I met some lovely people at my hostel & went for lunch with them. I ...

Welcome to Malaysia

Not one to stay still for too long, I left Singapore tonight bound for Kuala Lumpur. I’m excited to visit Malaysia & without time to research the best place to go I panicked & opted for the capital. Big mistake? Likely, buy hey ho. My bus was S$20 & I travelled with KKKL from the Tampines ...

Singapore

I’m in Singapore & boy do I have WAY too much luggage! My shoulders were aching as I tried to find my way to my hostel, all my fault of course. Combined with the heat & the lack of sleep I was struggling. Hell, I may as well blame the haze while I’m at it! ...

That irrepressible desire to book more flights *sigh*

Apparently not content with stopping over in Singapore on my way to NZ I have an overwhelming need to visit another country in Asia while I’m there. I have 1 weeks & I’m looking for travspiration (travel inspiration) of amazing places you have visited. My top wants on the list are: incredible sights, cheap massages, amazing ...

Planning Singapore

31. August 2015 asia, Travel, Travelling 0
One of my favourite things about travelling is the research prior to my adventure. When I see the images in books & online I feel a rise of excitement that I’m actually going to be there experiencing it. I am enraptured with this feeling & the seemingly idle meander of time until I get there. Next ...

Bangkok, Bangkok

 Here I am back in Bangkok with a few days to enjoy the city before I fly home. I love Bangkok! The pollution chokes me & makes my lungs feel like a car exhaust every now & again, but apart from that & the intolerable heat it’s an awesome place. I love the street food, ...

I flew from Chiang Mai to Phuket via Bangkok Don Muang all for about £40. Travelling puts me in horrendous form. Maybe if I had company I wouldn’t get as cranky. I hate waiting, being herded like cattle, eating rubbish processed food all day, the fear of missing flights & the fear of aerosinusitis. Needless ...

Chiang Mai

There are places I feel an instant connection with & there are places I dislike. Chiang Mai falls into the former category. It is endearing & has the hustle & bustle of city life along with the balance of easy access to peaceful country life. I could easily see myself coming back to live here for a ...
