Step Away From the Lonely Planet: A Requiem for Travel Guidebooks

This addresses is something which I’ve touched on before, the need for guidebooks when traveling. The impetus for this was spurred on by a Twitter discussion with Leif Pettersen who declared: I declare that smugly claiming to be too cool or savvy to travel with a guidebook is officially passé and open for ridicule. Leif […]

Kanvaga Bay, Rennell Island, Solomon Islands

One of the most beautiful things I’ve seen on my trip was Kangava Bay on Rennell in the Solomon Islands. This beautiful bay, which would be a packed with tourists if it were anywhere else on Earth, had only a few families with small wooden houses living near it. We stopped here to fix a […]

Still in Saigon

I’m still in Saigon. I said I wasn’t going to leave until I have all my Cambodia photos processed and I plan on sticking by that. I wasn’t aware of just how many photos I had taken between Angkor, Preah Vihear, Tonle Sap and Phnom Penh. I still have 500 left to process. Taking photos […]

A giant millipede in Sarawak, Malaysia

The insects I saw in the rain forest of Borneo were huge. It is hard to get a sense of scale from this photo, but trust me that this millipede was enormous.

A humpback whale fin in Exmouth, Western Australia

I went to Exmouth, WA to see whale sharks. I ended up seeing five whale sharks the day I went out, but was unable to take any photos (no underwater camera). I did however get to see some humpback whales. This was the tail of a mother who was swimming with her calf.

Read part 1 and part 2 first. The Temple We paid the dirt bike drivers $18 to take us round trip up the mountain. I don’t think they get much business lately. On the way up we saw periodic small groups of soldiers sleeping or bathing. They didn’t appear to be at Defcon 5. We […]

A child walking at Preah Vihear, Cambodia

In honor of my posts about my trip to Preah Vihear, this is a photo I took of a child walking around the ruins of the temple. What children were doing in a combat zone is beyond me.

Preah Vihear: My Trip To A War Zone, Part 2

Please read part 1 first. Getting to Preah Vihear from Siem Reap isn’t easy. In the future, I fully expect there to be day trips by bus. Currently, however, it requires a great deal of will and much more cash than you’ll spend going to temples around Siem Reap. If I had to guess, there […]
