Tamen Negara - I'm an engineer, get me out of here.

MALAYSIA | Tue, 1 May 2012 | By macedonboy | Views [1584]

I'd arranged a trip to Tamen Negara National Park through a travel agent in Kuala Lumpur for a not unreasonable RM840 (about 170) for 2 nights and 3 days. Tamen Negara means literally "National Park" in Malay and is a protected rainforest ... Read more >

Madhya Pradesh with Alanis Morissette

INDIA | Mon, 27 Feb 2012 | By macedonboy | Views [2154] | Comments [2]

From Gwalior, my next stops would be Madhya Pradesh, further to the south. Arriving at the bus station 1 hour early to ensure a seat, the bus schedules to Jhansi seems to have changed overnight. Calling out "Jhansi, Jhansi", a man directs me to a bus ... Read more >

Delhi - The Tomb, The Disaster and The Fort

INDIA | Thu, 16 Feb 2012 | By macedonboy | Views [1200]

So it's the third day now in Delhi and I've scheduled Safdarjung's Tomb and the Red Fort, in that order.   After hailing a taxi with instructions to take me to the Tomb. We arrived at a building that looked vaguely like the picture of the ... Read more >

So close to finishing one month early.

AUSTRALIA | Sun, 25 Dec 2011 | By homeless_harry | Views [2367] | Comments [2]

It's days like these I don't question my sanity; I fear for it. I question my dedication when even the air I breath conspires against me. I wonder how much more I would be enjoying myself if I was laying on a beach somewhere in Asia, far removed from ... Read more >

Riding a scooter to Russia.

VIETNAM | Fri, 19 Nov 2010 | By homeless_harry | Views [1105]

I've heard of time-warps, sometimes believing I had passed through one when I see my moustache in some reflective surface. I think the 70's are alive and well until reality makes a rare appearance in my mind. I've heard of worm holes as well, those ... Read more >

Luck so bad it requires a name change.

VIETNAM | Thu, 21 Oct 2010 | By homeless_harry | Views [2511] | Comments [2]

Sapa is Vietnam's trekking capital, and we had gone there with a vague idea to do just that. With loafers left over from the wedding being my only shoes, it shows just how vague I am. I hiked to Cat Cat village in them and nearly ... Read more >

Far too cool to fly on time.

AUSTRALIA | Sat, 20 Mar 2010 | By homeless_harry | Views [2002] | Comments [1]

This seasons fashion is idiocy, best expressed through missed flights and further unnecessary expenditure. While the finger of blame could stray slightly towards others, I must accept full responsibility for uncovering more and more unusual ... Read more >

Emergency Landing!

CAYMAN ISLANDS | Wed, 25 Nov 2009 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [2610] | Comments [3]

My life flashed before my eyes today. Literally! This journey was going so smoothly: getting my dental work done, seeing the turtles in Tortuguero, a trip to Cuba, Isla de Ometepe. Up until a week ago, when I found out the border to Honduras was closed ... Read more >

Bored, burnt and bonkers in Blowin' Bowen.

AUSTRALIA | Mon, 21 Sep 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [1361] | Comments [2]

What drugs was I on when I thought of returning to Bowen? Anyone who reads my ramblings will be able to answer that question, but they won't win anything for their trouble. I drive around amazed that the fond memories I have of the place seem so far ... Read more >

Plans are made for getting laid.

AUSTRALIA | Sun, 13 Sep 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [2230] | Comments [1]

Everybody needs holidays. Some of us need them more often than others. If I don't have a holiday every few months at least, I start entertaining thoughts of regicide. Everybody needs sex as well. If I don't have any sex for a few months at least, I ... Read more >

Prawn shit removes some polish.

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 8 Sep 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [1630]

I can take my too-cool-for-school sunglasses off now because some of the shiny gloss has been taken off of Broome. I'm still as happy here as a four year old with a new toy. Or a forty year old. Familiarity breeds somehow, and its offspring is considered ... Read more >

Succumbing to the style and cycles of the sisterhood.

AUSTRALIA | Mon, 3 Aug 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [1148]

The effeminate air in this house is obviously starting to have an effect on me. I'm not prepared to wear make up, gossip with sacrilegious fervour or watch 'Dirty dancing' on a weekly basis yet. I have developed an unhealthy obsession with Frangelico ... Read more >

Part 1. Risking life and limb on a reckless road trip.

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 26 May 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [1144]

If Broome has a short coming, it's that it's not a road trip. It's a bit too stationary for that. It's not actually a lot of things, like a toaster, philosophical thesis or belly button lint to list but a few. Most things obey the laws of physics and ... Read more >

Part 2. Blissed out under a Kimberley moon.

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 26 May 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [1113]

Our first destination was the Bungle Bungle's. Knowing nothing of them prior and being given no clue by their name, we arrived with few expectations. Good thing too as it was night time when we finally made it. I was driving by then and ploughing through ... Read more >

Part 3. The toilet talk of travelers

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 26 May 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [977]

I woke up before Lady Luck to find my tongue stuck in quicksand, my mind stuck in neutral and my pillow stuck to my face with drool. With BYO booze, my wallet had been a superfluous accompaniment to the night but had somehow managed to get lost in its ... Read more >

Part 4. The dingo pack and life outback.

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 26 May 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [2461]

Soon after it was time to eat before the 4am dry heaves started 12 hours too early. We stopped at the Halls Creek roadhouse where everyone's name could have been Bates, Bundy or Manson for all I knew. Spratty took affront to Mr. Roadhouse's service ... Read more >

Finding all the good things I hadn't started searching for yet.

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 14 Apr 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [962]

So I got myself a job as a 'dishy'. Not exactly evolving in the vocational scheme of things. Particularly when it's in a brewery, a place that offers the chance of rapid intellectual devolving. Aside from the universe again providing exactly what I ... Read more >

I should have thrown some dry, smoked and dirty grapes over my left shoulder.

AUSTRALIA | Mon, 30 Mar 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [1988]

Farmers should quake whenever they see me approach their fields. I have the cursed touch of Midas' evil twin. All harvesting work I do carves through profits like a one man economic wrecking ball. I am the best thing to happen to any farms ... Read more >

Rotten to the core.

AUSTRALIA | Sat, 7 Feb 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [1613]

After a fond farewell to our Canadian duo, we high-tailed it out of Hobart leaving a Hansel and Gretel like trail of money behind us. We planned to cover the state in four days and were aware most of that would have to be ... Read more >

Have I spent enough to own part of Tasmania?

AUSTRALIA | Sat, 7 Feb 2009 | By homeless_harry | Views [2624]

The Apple Isle. A tasty destination if ever I heard one. But as delicious as it sounds, the only people licking their lips were the people catering to / cashing in on the tourists. Towns are so small and devoid of business ... Read more >
