Asia » India » Uttar Pradesh » Varanasi October 22nd 2014

Having left Pokhara and crossed the border into India and arrived at Gorakhpur (that's probably not how it's spelt), I met an old Swedish guy on the bus who was also travelling to Varanasi, he's been in India for 32 years so I stuck with him and he got the train tickets sorted, second class sleeper, you get your own bed with a softer mattress than some of the ones on the trek! This is easily the best way to travel anywhere by train, fall asleep in one city, wake up in another, and you don't even have to pay for accommodation. So arrive in Varanasi, and I've been told it's the worst place in India for scammers and people trying to take your money I've got my wits about me, or so I think. ... read more

Asia » Nepal » Pokhara October 20th 2014

Haven't posted anything for a while, been trekking and then Pokhara is too beautiful to waste time typing a blog out! We set off on the Annapurna circuit trek, not really knowing or thinking about what a trek a really is, in hindsight it would've been greatly advantageous to have checked this out, because it turns out trekking is fucking hard work and lots of walking! As oppose to the brisk walk we expected. Stupid to think that really when the highest point of the trek is 5416M, but there you go. So we set off in high spirits, excited for the scenery we would encounter over the next three weeks...yes, 3 fucking weeks! The start of the trek was littered with Chinese mines and lots of construction, slightly ruining the beautiful mountain scenery surrounding us. ... read more

Asia » Nepal » Pokhara September 26th 2014

It's been a while, there's not much wifi in the himalaya! So I was put on the shittest bus possible, seemed alright at first, till it started stopping in every fucking town and letting any old cunt on! And I swear the driver went an especially bumpy fucking way just to spite me, It definitely wasn't that bumpy on the way there! Having intended to stop off in pokhara for two days then begin a trek, the fact I stayed for six days says a lot. One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! I've usually been moaning and doing a lot of swearing, but there's literally nothing bad to say about the place, 'crept maybe the rain at night, it's like nothing I've fucking seen before! Just pisses down like fuck! The weather during ... read more

Asia » Nepal » Chitwan September 16th 2014

Chitwan! 6 - So I board to Chitwan express, a bus apparently famed for it's AC, only to fine out the "AC" is a fan. Never mind, not too bad. The journey to Chitwan was fantastic, amazing views, and death defying road. Literally overtaking buses and having about an inch of road before falling to certain death into the fucking river a couple of hundred feet below! I don't know why everyone makes such a big deal about it though, it wasn't scary, maybe people are just pussy's or over exaggerate... To be fair, there was a lorry on it's side, but at ground level. So I arrive in Chitwan and I don't really know what to expect, or what I was expecting! But basically, this wasn't it, and it was fucking shite. Quiet little town ... read more

Asia » Nepal » Kathmandu September 14th 2014

First day - arrived at Kathmandu airport and had to wait so long to get a visa, I've seen people grow beards in less time than I was in that queue! End up getting pretty Much forced to take a taxi, which I've now realised I got majorly ripped off for!, the taxi the took me to red planet hostel, again getting a room there was a decision I was essentially forced into. but never mind, the rooms alright, aside from the overwhelming smell of damp, the sound of people pissing outside my window, the sound of next doors Nepali constituency fucking till all hours, the no hot water and questionable bed sheets. I went out for a wonder, got severely lost, to the point I thought I wasn't going to get back to the hostel. ... read more
