There’s no two ways about it – Patong is a seedy dump. Sure, if you like crap food, dirty beaches, cheap souvenirs and all the other stuff that comes with a seedy place then Patong might be for you. But watching fat Western tourists sweat and leer and waddle and gorge isn’t exactly my idea of paradise.

My collection included soap that was moulded into the shape of cartoon characters, fairy tale characters and a wide range of small creatures such as turtles and snails. Some soap, such as my ALF soap, came in a deluxe set that included talc and a small brush – these were particularly precious and held pride of place on the display shelf. Each item of…Continue

To which my reply is usually, "Ok, then can we cuddle instead?"
Coincidentally it turns out, these are all symptoms of altitude sickness. Delhi was seventeen hours behind me and the first thing you notice is doing the smallest bit of exercise takes so much more effort than…

2660 South Scenic Ave.
Springfield, MO 65807
The first stop of the day was at the home of the American Legion Post #639. Luckily we got there fairly early as there appeared to be a Volkswagen vehicle show taking place at the Post. I had planned the drive to Springfield around photographing the UH-1H and the AH-1G dedicated to the Vietnam veterans, but there was a surprise. Pulling in to the parking lot the first thing I noticed was…Continue

Cooking while you travel is a great way to experience the culture and exotic food ingredients of other countries. Nothing beats shopping at an open-air market, mingling with locals and returning to camp to cook an awesome meal with fresh ingredients that cost pennies. To me, this is the essence of travel. Good people,…

India has many new visa regulations, the most recent having been released in 2010.
