BANGKOK – VAN ALLES EN NOG WATOnderweg naar Bangkok besluiten we eerst een pakketje bij het vliegveld af te halen. Als we in een wir-war van wegen terecht komen, blijkt dat Bangkok niet geladen is op de GPS….en dus…

DE STRANDEN Vrij snel arriveren we aan de zuidkust van Cambodja in Kampot. Dit is een aardig plaatsje waar we lunchen maar niet blijven. Ronald en ik hebben een van onze zeldzame ‘meningsverschillen’ en zien daarom de schoonheid van de…

Voordat we het beseffen, zijn we zomaar een week op dit eiland. De ene dag glijdt moeiteloos over in de andere. Het strand waar we staan, heet Ao Klong Jaak zo’n beetje op het meest zuidelijke puntje van het eiland…

It’s a bright morning in Bangkok, and a beam of light reflects in just such a way from the rooftop of the drug factory across the way as to awaken me from my bear-like hibernation. We’ve been living in this…

One thing we’ve come to appreciate about our Southeast Asian friends is their ability to coerce us into doing unusual activities that we would never otherwise do. This subtle trickery is achieved through nonchalance and a sprinkling of urgency, such…

The forklift driver carefully maneuvered the arm in front of Nacho’s sliding door. The engine hung idly from a chain as the driver used the controls to square up the arm with the opening in the side of the van.…
Brad sat with his back to the Mekong River and I watched his face slowly darken to a silhouette of black. The sky was smeared with the most brilliant blues while the dark clouds seemingly sat on an invisible sheet of glass. We rested here, along the Me...

It all started with a little bump. “What on Earth was that?” Sheena asked, wide-eyed and alarmed. “Just a little bump,” I said reassuringly. As dictated by Murphy’s Law, it was 92 kilometers into a 100 kilometer diversion off of Thailand’s northwestern mountain circuit that would have taken us to a high mountaintop campsite next [...]

On a Tuesday afternoon Sheena and I boarded Nacho and set off in search of a human zoo. “A human zoo,” you say? It must be so, for it says it right here in our guidebook. “The villages are often derided as human zoos, and there are certainly elements of this, but we find them [...]

Brad and I are certainly two people who love our morning coffee. Brad says I get angry without it but I wouldn’t go that far. When we lived at home we ordered green beans from Sweet Marias in Oakland and roasted a pound of coffee every week. We like it fresh. Yet, when we got [...]
