Gluttony Expedition – Dead Words, Nha Trang, Vietnam

 After the stern talking to yesterday Greg is finally behaving like a man befitting my substantial repute and Rob has continued his good form from the lovers tiff just out of Mui Ne. I don’t want to jinx the good fortune but just possibly there’s to be four of us all getting along again as […]

Gluttony Expedition – The Good obsession, Dalat, Vietnam

 So distant now is the punishing slog of our first leg on this road trip, getting lost, bad roads, baking sun and sore bums seem a more distant memory than just two days ago. A shimmering ocean flanks our right side in this adventure north, cows graze on a beach and sandy soil even more […]

Gluttony Expedition – Walking tall, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

 Spat out into the world once again; a new city to explore, a new culture to taste, a new language we can’t speak. There’s a mountain of history pouring down on us in Ho Chi Minh, the southern capital of Vietnam but for now the long stories of Vietnam and its place in the region […]

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 […]

Gluttony Expedition – Eating our Feelings, Chiang Mai, Thailand

 We’ve finally recovered. Battling through self doubt, harsh acceptance and crippling restraint there emerges now light peeking through a dark cloud so full of trials, an uplifting wash of euphoria at the achievement that always seemed to distant. We’ve finally broken free of our eating disorder, the Lao food eating disorder that compelled us to […]

Gluttony Expedition – Gods, Luang Prabang, Laos

 This whole time in Laos we’ve been in the most real of reality TV shows eating everything on offer, today though we’re metaphorically the ones in front of the camera and cooking up a storm. It’s cooking school time. First up is our trip to the market to be introduced to Lao food and ingredients, […]

Gluttony Expedition – Spiritual, Luang Prabang, Laos

 The food-fest that is Laos continues but there’s something completely wrong, so horribly wrong. I have a tray of sticky rice and some sort of interesting little treats wrapped in vine leaves but I can’t eat any of it, it’s arrayed in a wicker basket for me to give away, yes give away; the horror. […]
