Auckland

Hello New Zealand! I am in Auckland. It has the feeling of just another city about it…. That is to be expected when you are in another city. I am so happy to finally be here, in New Zealand, after having it in the back of my mind & as one of the big ones ...

Sydney

Flying into Sydney on the cusp of sunrise & the skyline looks incredible. I have a feeling I would have a good time in this city. It’s a shame I’m just here for a connecting flight. I’m exhausted from the traveling. I hate how my face feels so congested & puffy & my feet feel heavy ...

Back to Singapore

I have 1 more night in Singapore before I continue my journey to Auckland. This morning I took a 4hr morning bus from Melaka to Singapore, $12 (£5.50). I’m delighted to report that no one burped in my face stamping me back into the country, what a relief. Not one to sit around, I spent ...

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 ...

I say Melaka, you say Malacca

Keen not to limit my time in Malaysia to solely Kuala Lumpur I am on the road again bound for Melaka aka Malacca. It’s a 2 hour bus journey from KL in the same style of small spacious bus I got from Singapore to KL & cost 11RM (approx £1.60). It is a shame to move ...

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 ...

Off I go

I am squashed & uncomfortable & I shall remain in this sorry state for the next 13 hours. This sorry state is the British Airways 8pm flight from London Heathrow  to Singapore. My trip to New Zealand & my new life have commenced! I have a 6 night stop over in Singapore & will probably ...

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! ...
