Where I’m At: Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires - Argentina

Greetings from Buenos Aires. I’m in Argentina and Uruguay for 3 weeks thanks to Air France/KLM, who are flying me from London. My first leg of the trip was from London to Amsterdam, and then onwards to Buenos Aires with KLM. I have friends who have lived in Buenos Aires (or visited longer than they […]

Where I’m At: Autumn in Amsterdam

Bikes - Amsterdam

[Bridges and bicycles - a common scene in Amsterdam.] It occurred to me this week while I was seeing my breath that I have been in tropical/hot climates since July last year, thus my 15 month summer came to an end when I arrived in London last week. Not that I mind as I’m enjoying […]

Where I’m At: Hong Kong

Hong Kong

Greetings from Hong Kong International Airport. Out of all the airports I hub through HKG remains one of my favourites (up there with SIN), mainly for its clean, uncluttered layout and free wifi. And of course it is attached to one of the great cities of the world. Whenever I have a flight that is […]

Where I’m At: Taipei – markets and meetups

Raohe St night market

Greetings from Taipei. I’ve been here for ten days and I’m glad to have allocated two weeks here. I’ve gotten into a steady routine where I go to my preferred cafe in the morning to work, then go exploring for the rest of the day. One of the highlights so far has been all the […]

Where I’m At: Taipei

Archway - Taipei

[The Archway - Taipei.] Greetings from Taipei. I’ve had three days here now and I’m glad I have given myself two weeks. While you could probably see all the sights in a week I have a list of places to eat and cafes to visit that would need at least a month to visit. People […]

Where I’m At: Ho Chi Minh City – Upcoming travels

Temple - Ho Chi Minh City

[Temple in Binh Thanh District, Ho Chi Minh City - Vietnam.] Greetings from Ho Chi Minh City. My three month visa expires in a few days so rather than extending it I will be getting back on the road. Here is what I’ll be doing over the next few weeks. On sunday I will be […]

Where I’m At: Ho Chi Minh City – Getting my digital house in order

Chicken Pho

Greetings from Ho Chi Minh City. Another three month visa is about to expire which means I will be back on the road again soon (more on upcoming destinations next week). While it’s easy enough to extend your Vietnamese visa without having to leave the country, I use the three month time frame as a […]

Where I’m At: Dili – Travels in Timor, West and East

Sunset - Kupang, West Timor

Greetings from Dili, East Timor. I’ve spent the last week in the Island of Timor; West being in Indonesia; East being the independent nation of East Timor. Kupang – in West Timor – is not exactly somewhere people linger, but if you need a visa for East Timor you will find yourself here. My visa […]

Where I’m At: Ende – Flying through Flores

Komodo National Park

Greetings from Ende, Indonesia (yep, I had never heard of it either). This unremarkable provincial city is where I end my Flores trip. I had planned to spend more time in Flores but what I didn’t plan was an East Timor visa. You can get an East Timor visa at the consulate in Bali but […]

Where I’m At: Labuan Bajo – Visiting Komodo, Flores, and Timor

Flying into Labuan Bajo

Greetings from Labuan Bajo, Indonesia; the starting point for my trip across Flores and Timor (West and East). There are over 17,000 islands in Indonesia and I try and visit a new island every time I come back, though most of those islands look like this: [3 of the 17,000+ islands that make up Indonesia.] […]
