Continuing along the Draa

From Skoura, we headed back towards Ouarzazate and then South along the N9 again following the Draa river valley. This part of the journey really was my favourite I think, the landscape seemed to change around every corner (and there were a lot of corners!). The road took us through the major town of Agdz… Continue reading Continuing along the Draa

Detour along the Dades

In hindsight, Pete and I wished that we had skipped our detour along the Dades to Skoura and gone straight to the desert at M'Hamid, but that's part of the adventure and I had read that the Dades Gorge and River was home to some of the most spectacular oases and sights. So we set… Continue reading Detour along the Dades

Cycling in Split

The drive from Plitvice to Split took us down some insanely beautiful roads, as well as roads surrounded by interest and mystery.

On the bus I got chatting to a Chinese/Malaysian girl named Viny. She studied in KL and was on the way home to see her… Continue reading Making friends in Melaka

On the nature trail in Kuching (Borneo)

From the Cameron Highlands I headed down to Kuala Lumpur to catch a flight the next day to the Malaysian city of Kuching in Sarawak on the island of Borneo. I bough my ticket here on a bit of a whim after checking the AirAsia website - the flight was about £20 return! In KL… Continue reading On the nature trail in Kuching (Borneo)

Bike riding in Chumphon

I left Prachuap on a local train, the journey was 3 hours and cost roughly 80p. I was sat next to a couple of elderly women, with bright red teeth stained with betel nut. They each had a handbag with a plastic bag liner and were spitting their red as saliva into it every few… Continue reading Bike riding in Chumphon
