Jakarta, Indonesia

I went into Jakarta doing something I don’t normally do because all I heard were very negative things about the city-I decided I hated it before I got there. That was dumb because I really enjoyed Jakarta. I thought it was an awesome, frenetic, fast-paced city that reminded of Bangkok during the day-I mean almost […]

Leaving Paradise in Bali

I’m really going to miss Bali. What a great place to hang out and relax in for a week or so. There is so much to do it could keep you busy forever. Or you could do absolutely nothing at all and love it. There are many different areas of the island that you could […]

The Bounty Hotel in Bali

I arrived back in Bali from Timor last night after a two hour wait for the visas on arrival at the Bali airport which was super annoying. But alas, I arrived at the Bounty Hotel; a mecca for sun, fun, Aussies and complete and utter debauchery. Friday night is their biggest night with an all […]

Hardcore in Dili, Timor-Leste

Last night I went out for a few drinks at this place called One More Bar and Cafe here in Dili, East Timor. It was one of those typical third world upper level open air bars with a pool and ping pong table (I love both btw). Anyway, it was especially interesting and fun because […]

Loving Bali

Today was one of those days that everyone needs every now and then. Wake up to a nice buffet breakfast sitting outside looking over the Indian Ocean. Then head over to Kuta Beach and surf for a few hours, buy a few things (T-shirts), have a nice lunch and then get a two hour massage […]

My First day in Bali

After arriving late last night, Japan Airlines lost my bag, so I was fairly nonplussed about that. However, I knew I would have it the next day and just the smell of the air in Bali is enough to forget any troubles. This place may just be the perfect place to be. Since I didn’t […]

Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon (although most people still call it Saigon), is Vietnam’s largest city and one of the most exciting and hectic cities in Asia. Saigon is a maze of winding roads, crazy motorbike drivers and awful air pollution. However, it is home to Vietnam’s best nightlife, culture, history and is the […]

A Boat Trip in Boracay, Philippines

There is something magical about a boat trip in paradise. It can be even more relaxing than just sitting on the beach all day. Plus, you get to view a lot more and feel the breeze ripping through your body. I have been fortunate to have been on many boat trips in many different places […]

Ko Phangan, Thailand-Full Moon Party

I had previously been to Thailand during the summer of 1999 and the entire time I was there I was very ill. I never made it out of Bangkok because of my fear of getting seriously sick and having to go to a hospital and having nothing close enough to help in an emergency. So […]
