While you were working – Many Faces, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

 So starkly sits Siem Reap, this comfortable, clean modern town nestled in beside one of the worlds great archaeological sites: the great city of Angkor. Sipping delicious coffee in a chic cafe the world of Siem Reap whizzes by in the early hours before our bus to Phnom Penh and into another layer of the […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Angkor Temples, Siem Reap, Cambodia

The temples of Angkor Wat and around were so photogenic that there is no way we could put all of the good pictures in the couple of posts we did.  So here is the best twenty.  Enjoy. Statues and vistas:          People:               Grand temples, fine detail:           Temples overgrown:         […]

While you were working – iPhones, Siem Reap, Cambodia

 Back again like moths to a flame; we were whisked away yesterday by the imaginings of a vivid and lively Angkor Wat from times gone by on the whispers of thousands of ghosts that used to call this place their home. This morning there are no whispers, no crazy declarations from King Jayavarman about being […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Thailand

Thailand. Close your eyes a minute and what do you see? Cheap beers, bars, beaches, ladyboys, nightlife? Many do and many are so wrong. Like judging a book by its cover, the pages have revealed so much more; Thailand deserves a second look; a proper look. This is what we saw in the short time […]

Top 10 – Thailand

 They’re falling like ten pins these borders, we’re crossing countries in a flash but in the hasty flight that is our south east Asian whirlwind travel gems are not lost to the void of a swirling tempest. On a recurring theme of ‘more than what you thought’ we leave Thailand and with it comes the […]

While you were working – A Sweet Face, Bangkok, Thailand

 Every cloud has a silver lining goes the saying, just as every road has a traffic jam in Bangkok, yet a hard task it is to scratch the former from the latter. An ocean of red lights twinkling as if a burning moon has rippled the surface of a world stood still turns our silver […]

While you were working – Big Wide World, Ayuthaya, Thailand

 There’s times when curiosity gets the better of you, when you just have to have a look at something that you are certain contains little nutritional value. Welcome to Khao san road, Bangkok. Made so famous in Australia not just because of its bohemian original backpacker haunts and, at the time, new world sense of […]

Gluttony Expedition – Hallmark Day, Bangkok, Thailand

 It’s that time of year, the moment where the world stands still for the birthday that is far more than just another circle on a calendar, it’s a global celebration. We’re not talking about the birthday of Nelson Mandela, Martin Luthor King, Ghandi, Einstein, Abraham Lincoln or Buddha himself; far more importantly its the day […]
