Hola! I've somehow managed to reach the age of 25 and managed to achieve what feels like f all! So here I am about to embark on my travels, I'm off to see the world, set off on 29th August. Anyone that knows me will know I dont often talk much sense so if your wanting to read a wonderfully descriptive informative eloquent blog... then look elsewhere! I'm no budding travel journalist... I can't string a sentence together 99.9 % of the time. Hopefully though I wont get so smashed that I cant remember enough about my experiences to at least relay a bit about them on here. Ah well, I'll give it a go... apologies in advance if I talk an absolute load of bollocks (sorry mum haha)



Asia » Cambodia » North » Siem Reap December 6th 2011

Me and Julie headed off to Halong bay, the tour to put it bluntly was shite. the tour guide hardly spoke any english and was extremely rude. he called one of the girls a fucking bitch and threatened a few people!! Ha long bay itself was beautiful but i guess due to all the tourists it was very dirty ( the water). we went swimming in the dark though after jumping off the top of the boat which was cool and me and julie went kyaking even though she was petrified!! we managed it without incident though. After we got back we bought multi stop tickets to get us down the coast. when we were getting on the bus the guy who we bought the tickets from made 3 czech guys promise they'd look after us.... ... read more

WE STARTED OFF PLAYING JENGA IN THE HOSTAL BAR AND DRINKING GIN THEN MOVED ON TO ANOTHER PARTY ONE OF THE GIRLS WAS SO SMASHED SHE JOINED IN A GAME OF 'SMASHIES' WHICH IS BASICALLY DRUNK PEOPLE TRYING TO SMASH FULL CANS OF BEER ON THEIR FOREHEADS, WHICH JUST DOESNT MAKE ANY SENSE TO ME WHAT SO EVER. ANYWAY SHE ENDED UP BLEEDING PROFUSELY AND FALLING OUT WITH HER BOYFRIEND, oh dear! we then all went to a club and partied untill the police came and literally threw us out. disregarding my own safety completely i got on the back of some irish mans bike and we went to a random house party. stayed up drinking all night then remembered i had a tour booked ... read more

Asia » Laos » West » Vang Vieng November 12th 2011

The bus journey to vang vieng was bumpy and bendy to say the least unfortunately it was dark but i wish id have gone in the day because we went through the mountains and i bet the scenery was awesome. 11.30 I arrived and found a guest house and got some sleep. Up early the next morning i headed in to town to get my bearings and soon found a tube and headed off in a tuk tuk to the river to start the tubing. I got talking to a group of australians and we stated on the beer... pretty soon i was a bit tipsy and we were playing 'beer pong' where you have to throw a table tennis ball in to a beer glass. And if you get it in your apponent has to ... read more

Asia » Laos November 10th 2011

Well I made it out of Pattaya and headed to Bangkok, got the bus then got to the bus station and got searched by the tourist police, they asked why i was in Thailand and i just came out with 'cos i can' without putting much thought in to it. This resulted in all my shit being emptied out my bag... happy days. I then caught a taxi to Koh san road which is absolutely mental, just stayed one night there then went to wat pho and another wat across the river from there. It was my first temple experience and they were beautiful one of them you can climb near vertical steps to the top.... which i dont recommend doing in a skirt because you end up getting japanese tourists below you trying to take ... read more

Asia » Thailand » Central Thailand » Ko Samet November 4th 2011

Did I learn my lesson from drinking too much thai whiskey...,hell no. I proceeded to have a crazy few days on the island. And it was great, the only thing i did was go on a snorkelling trip around some islands on one of the days. But my time pretty much consisted of sleeping till late, eating lots, watching lots of comedy during the day then getting pissed at night. We went to a reggae bar one night before id even ordered a drink a crazy thai/hippy/rasta guy asked me if i wanted to buy some mara-ju-ana. Errr 'no thanks' but we had a good night with some crazy guys from kuwait and listening to the surprisingly good rasta/thai/hippy 'sunflower band'. Funniest bit was one of them trying to sing Bob Marley Iron, Lion, Zion he ... read more

Asia » Thailand » Central Thailand » Ko Samet October 30th 2011

Very quick entry today because I'm very very ill- all self inflicted! Stay away from Thai whiskey, it fucks you up BIG TIME! Or maybe dont stay away completely just dont drink 2 and a half buckets like me. Major hangover and nearly broken nose, i look like iv been fighting. Happy days. Going to go sleep it off on the beach with a few cocktails and some great thai food then do it all again no doubt. ... read more

Asia » Thailand » Eastern Thailand » Koh Chang October 28th 2011

I got up this morning and headed to the beach, it was only my 2nd time sunbathing since iv been travelling. Though the first time probably didnt count cos i only managed half an hour. I stayed out for a few hours, the beach was beautiful and the water is calm, clear and warm. I cant stress how beautiful the island is- I swam out looked back and it was just white sand and jungle covered mountains. The island is a bit touristy though if im honest, everything is in english even though there are hardly any english people here mainly europeans- germans and french i think. And really strange is the fact it says everywhere topless sunbathing is not aloud in thailand yet there were loads of people! I dont get topless sunbathing it offends ... read more

Asia » Thailand » Eastern Thailand » Koh Chang October 27th 2011

I left for koh chang about 10 am, I took a motorbike taxi to the station, i love motorbike taxis theyre soooo fun but also very dangerous too i expect but it was my only choice. I then got a taxi to the port. Got there got my ticket then waited for the boat. I was the only non thai on the boat which if im honest was a bit un nearving but all was good. The journey was just over an hour and at the other side i was ushered in to the back of a pick up truck and off i went to 'lonely beach'. The island is spectacular, all you can see in all directions is rainforest, unless your on the beach then sand obviously, except for where im staying where it is ... read more

Asia » Thailand » Eastern Thailand October 25th 2011

I think the last post i made I'd just been skydiving. The day after I went to watch my first opera and i loved it! It was Don Giovanni by Mozart really surprised me it was very very dark and very funny! Just coming off the subject im in an internet cafe with loads of thai teenagers who are all online gaming together and screaming at eachother!!! doing my frigging head in. The day after i headed off to Tamworth ready for the ranch getting off the train i met a giy from London on the same course so we made the decision to go for a few pints, well not pints cos theyre lightweights in oz and drink something called scooners or something like that- which is smaller. Even so we ended up pissed and ... read more
