          Despite staying for only one night, we were given a free upgrade to a suite - huge rooms, huge bed with wonderful fluffy pillows, a shower and separate bath, and a guest bathroom. Lovely decor on cream accented with green.

          We had an extremely brief discussion on breakfast. Could Ron wait to eat until we got to Koru Club? Perhaps not, so off we went in search of breakfast! It always annoys me to pay $22 each for a continental breakfast, but oh well, it tamed the beast. It was then off to the airport with 15 kg and 13 kg bags! Unheard of! Koru Club proved difficult to …

We had a few more drinks along the street including one in a bar with a balcony. I could spend hours here just people watching. There is so much going on! The last bar you come to is the BBQ we ate at last night. We pulled up a couple of plastic chairs and Michael went off to choose a couple of snacks. We were ...

          This coffee gains it's name in an interesting way, depending on what you think is interesting. This particular coffee berry is enjoyed by said weasels, the coffee beans excreted as nature intended and the manure is then collected, (now that's a job!) cleaned and the coffee beans ground to make a strong and quite frankly tasty coffee. ...

You could just about fit into this tiny hole and then it was covered with leaves so you would literally have no idea that anyone was underneath you. Now for shooting guns - there were a number of different types of guns you could choose from. They charged you around £1 per bullet. Jack chose a M16 and he took 9 bullets, I took ...

          After a long and arduous, 16 hour journey I finally arrived in Saigon, Vietnam (also known as Ho Chi Minh City). This was my first bus journey alone and also my first border crossing, something that apparently every backpacker has to experience, a sort of right of passage if you will.

I arrived in Phnom Penh at 6.30am, where I had to change bus, the next ...
