A Summary Of Summaries

The end is nigh. The darkness cometh, and shall engulf us all. A blog-free world awaits. Reading between the lines, I think that means we’re coming home. After almost a year on the road, it’s time to wrap things up for now. If you’re lucky, this might be the last collection of pointless ramblings you’ll […]

An Overdue Dose of Irrelevant Nonsense

Hear Ye, hear Ye! The most pointless and irrelevant travel blog on the internet is, I dunno, somewhere else? I mean, sure this is definitely a pointless and irrelevant blog, but it would be arrogant in the extreme to call this the MOST of anything. Most directionless, maybe. Or stupid. Anyway. Read on, good folk […]

Where the Fuck Am I? The Sequel

As per fucking usual in Mongolia, my already tentative grasp on reality becomes ever-looser with each passing vodka shot, failed conversation, and moment of solitude. But nobody wants to hear about that, you want to hear about fun stuff, stuff you can relate to, stuff that puts a smile on your dial! Well, wrong blog. […]

If you’ve ever felt an overwhelming desire to have absolutely no idea what’s going on, while being surrounded by others who are equally unaware of what’s going on, try being me.

I’m on a bus bitch. Not a particularly comfy one it must be said, nor exciting, nor brag-worthy in any way really, but that’s where I am. Just in case you were curious. This particular brand of “sleeper buses” have pulled off the frankly remarkable marketing coup of naming themselves after possibly the only activity […]

An ode to Planning, and then a more genuine ode to not planning

Despite primarily being a playground for those with million dollar watches and gold-plated faeces, Singapore was a hell of a lot of fun. Some global corporation happened to be treating its global employee base to one hell of a company picnic, complete with free unlimited booze, a security squadron and live performance by Peking Duck, […]

The Ever-Growing Belly of a Travelling Nutjob

  After a month of relative rural obscurity throughout Indonesia, it was somewhat relieving and somewhat unnerving to arrive in ultra-modern KL, a city where you can almost literally cross the entire CBD without needing to touch the pavement – an immense network of overpasses, monorails and, most importantly, malls keeps you surrounded by potential […]

7 out of 17,000 Islands

For as long as I can remember, I’ve suffered from a terrible, debilitating illness, for which, to the best of my knowledge, there is no cure. The disease has overshadowed every aspect of my life, affecting my friendships, relationships and social interactions. It’s difficult to talk about, but I think it’s important to do so, […]
