This time I’m in Bangkok,
Another business trip to Tokyo
Was another great experience, thanks to all the guys there for looking after to me while I was there.
Parliament house in Tokyo.
The night scape.Old vs New. McDonalds Japan next to classic Japanese wooden house.
The games rooms are filled with noise like a nightclub at 3am keeping everyone awake. I have no idea what they are playing or how but it has them mesmerized
I hope you enjoy these images from Ha Long Bay in Vietnam
With mountains that jut out of the water, this world heritage listed area is incredible.
Fishing out at almost worlds end, where the mist and water blend to one.
Sailing into Ha Long Bay was an experience you remember with the mountains jutting out of the water and the eerie feeling with the fog making everything jump out at you at the last minut.
Thanks to the guys from Halong Glory Cruises for a great stay.
China was another amazing place, with my first visit and a quiet a number of other firsts.
First time in Shanghai, Beijing, on the great wall of china, on a bullet train traveling over 300km/h, eating in a vegan restaurant, eating a meal of just duck necks among other things.
With some incredible food, and stark contrasts between modern and old china.
This place is well worth a visit but as a tourist there are people constantly trying to scam you. so beware.
The Bund night scape
The Shanghai waterfront is like any modern city, full of skyscrapers and
The view from the bund on the waterfront area on the Huangpu River
Beijing is more like an old school city, still developing with lots of old traditional buildings and houses.
The Forbidden City / Imperial Palace in Beijing
The Forbidden City is an incredible place in the center of Beijing. With incredible buildings and artifacts. Definitely worth spending a day there.
Shanghai to Beijing Train – Beijing to Shanghai Train
The Chinese bullet train was a great way to get between Shanghai and Beijing. It takes a little longer than the plane, but you get to see so much more, it is about a 5 1/2 hour journey that is very comfortable and quiet.
Well I’ve been on the road a lot with work lately and have been a bit slack updating my website. So I thought I’d better try and get back on top of things.
I was recently on a trip to Hanoi in Vietnam.
Vietnam is an amazing place. It’s the type of chaos that reminds you of the good old days when you were a kid. Where you didn’t have cops book you for jay walking across the road, because back then you were smarter than a light globe, or council stopping you from having your own lemonade stand out the front of your house for fear that someone might get an upset stomach.
The markets are amazing in what you can get, from dried fish to all kinds of fruit and vegetables
Have you ever tried BBQ Dog? Maybe Barbeque Dog is more on your menu but it wasn’t on mine that day.
Sometimes a ladder is a ladder, othertimes work place saftey maybe not high on the priority list.
Red Lanterns line the streets and temples in similar ways to the chinese red lanterns..
The traditional woker of the fields who gets to and from work on his bicycle and wears the tradional bamboo hat.
