Gu Lang Yu – piano island in China

December 27, 2017 | Posted in Travel

Another of my incredible China adventures in recent times involved a visit to this crazy island known as Gu Lang Yu!

Deception Island Entrance in Antarctica

November 8, 2017 | Posted in Travel

Deception Island is a totally magnificent place and this was another amazing journey on planet earth, almost James Bond style as we waited on deck.

How Not to go Tubing in Vang Vieng

April 29, 2013 | Posted in Travel

There are lessons to learn on our travels and no matter how much travel experience we have, we are always prone to make mistakes. So here is where travel went badly wrong for me, and I’m warning you to be careful too! I’m not proud of my horrendous time in the wonderful town of Vang Vieng! Things all went wrong for in Vang Vieng and for this reason my memories of Laos are rather negative and jaded, apart from the fact that I was there with a top mate of mine. I’m not going to tell you how to go tubing, I’m going to tell you my story and how NOT to go tubing in Vang Vieng Laos…
