Siem Reap, Cambodia Part 2 Sunset Lake Tour

I was extremely hesitant about going on this tour. It was scheduled from 3:30 PM to 7:30 PM, and sounded absolutely wonderful, but knowing how Southeast Asians are with respect to timeliness, and the fact that I had a flight at 10:30 PM, it felt like a gamble. I couldn't have been more grateful that … Continue reading Siem Reap, Cambodia Part 2 Sunset Lake Tour

Siem Reap, Cambodia Part 1, Angkor Wat and Surrounding Temples

Until the day before arriving in Siem Reap, little did I know that I would be seeing far more temples than merely Angkor Wat. Although dilapidated and damaged, Unesco has done a wonderful job of preserving these temples. The first temple we saw was Bayan, constructed in the 11th century. Cambodia, historically, followed the Hindu … Continue reading Siem Reap, Cambodia Part 1, Angkor Wat and Surrounding Temples

Dreams Of Phuket

I've been waiting a long time for this moment. I've just woken up to finish the last of my packing, and I will be heading to the airport to return to Phuket soon. When I left in May, I felt that I had a lot of unfinished business in Phuket. I hated my job at … Continue reading Dreams Of Phuket

Phuket Part 4– Sarasin Bridge Joy Ride

Today was my last day in Phuket. Over the last month I had discovered the joy of riding a motorcycle. The wind on my cheeks while going fast, the ease of handling, and also wriggling through traffic.

Phuket Part 3– The Big Buddha And Phrom Thep Cape

Yesterday was a pretty wonderful day. On the way to Kata beach the previous two times I had always seen the Big Buddha overlooking both Kata and Chalong, but never really knew how to get there.

Upwards and Onwards to Phuket

My month long job hunt is finally over. As you all know I really wanted to go to Japan. I was turned down after two seemingly promising interviews with a school in Kochi, Japan.

Phoneless Pharaohing in Buddhapest Part 4– Nightlife

Over the last four days I have been doing my fair share of sightseeing, but that is for a different post. I'd like to talk a bit about the nightlife in Budapest. What is an architectural wonderland by day can become a sleepless maze of activity in the pubs, clubs, and ruin bars by night. … Continue reading Phoneless Pharaohing in Buddhapest Part 4– Nightlife

She had also studied … Continue reading Phoneless Pharaohing Part 3– Jason Mraz Concert in Budapest

Phoneless Pharaoing in Buddhapest Part 2– Skin Deep In the Molarless Pigeon

Pharaoh went to Ambers cafe to catch up on some blogs. To cut back on his spending he decided to eat some cafe food, have a green tea party, and jackhammer away on his macbook. Many gorgeous pigeons walked in and out of the cafe, but his intention of finishing the blogs he thought of … Continue reading Phoneless Pharaoing in Buddhapest Part 2– Skin Deep In the Molarless Pigeon
