Oct 30, 2014 - 10:23 AM - by chassamui |
I will be in KL this weekend meeting up with an old mate who is en route to 'stralia. |
We are both big sports fans, so if anyone can point to a decent bar with Rugby Union/F1 coverage, we would be much obliged.

I'm not sure if I'm having a mid-life crisis or a nervous breakdown, but either way, having been presented with the task to travel to Basingstoke this weekend I decided to undertake the journey on a bicycle, via the canal. |
If you've never heard of Basingstoke, which is likely, it is a small city in Hampshire; if you've never heard of Hampshire, it is one of the six home counties which border London; if you've never heard of London you're a fucking idiot.

Hey guys, me and my girlfriend are looking to travel to Thailand for her 22nd birthday and my 23rd birthday (all within 14 days of each other). We plan to travel on the 10th of Feburary and return to Australia on the 25th of Feburary. |
We aren't sure what parts to go, so maybe you can help us both

October 25, 2014
Myanmar's Ministry of Immigration and Population will begin issuing electronic visas for tourists at six additional locations, a ministry official told The Irrawaddy on Friday.
The e-visa registration, introduced on Sept 1, is currently only available to visitors entering the country through the Yangon International Airport. The ministry said that service will soon be extended to Mandalay, Naypyidaw and four overland... [Read More]

My first documentary. |
"A drunken idiot in Europe"
The entirety of this was filmed when either steaming pissed or horribly hungover.
Excuse my lugubrious tones...
...and I'm aware that the first bar in Brussels is for they who aren't interested in female company.
Check it out if you have a spare 20 minutes.
Obliged, etc etc

Oct 20, 2014 - 12:46 AM - by somtamslap |
Mr Slap sat nestled into his sofa quaffing rampantly at a large bottle of Bierre Moretti. It was indeed a fine beverage. He made a mental note to buy more of it. Lots more. It certainly had the potential to become his lager of choice - and lager, if truth be told, played an integral role in Mr Slap's existence; acted as a lubricant if you will; greased the wheels; oiled the intricacies; made the whole damn gig a little easier to endure. |
The X Factor was on. It was either that or... [Read More]

Oct 18, 2014 - 9:56 PM - by Codesh |
I just tried to do an online visa to Myanmar (Burma) for a trip 2 weeks from now. But their website, at present, allows you to obtain this visa only if you are flying into Yangon (see: Myanmar eVisa (Official Government Website). |
If, like me, you want to fly to Mandalay, it seems you must use a travel agent or go to the Myanmar Embassy in Bangkok and apply in person.
So, as I don't... [Read More]

Landing in Paris airport in the late evening after cancelled and delayed flights from Bangkok, checked into a hotel (120 Euros !!!) and supped a couple of bottles of Frances staple (another 40 Euros!!!), had a quick nap, overslept, dashed to the airport and just managed to catch the morning flight to Brest. |
When i alighted from a short hop flight from Paris to Brest, hungover, i was met with clear blue skies and a very warm sun.

Just got of the phone talking to big bird about his recent 3 week holiday to the Philippines, he had a blast, what impressed me most was the fact that big bird is 100 percent blind and gets around with a white stick, the wife dropped him of in Angeles then continued on to Manila to see the family, big birds always been pretty indepedant and does his own thing, can you imagine being sightless in a rathole like AC when I first met him some 30years ago he could kind of see through the coke...

Oct 13, 2014 - 2:18 PM - by somtamslap |
I've developed something of an affinity with train travel. It really is the only way to travel; more relaxing than a car or a motorcycle; doesn't demand perpetual physical exertion like cycling; is infinitesimally less terrifying than flying; and doesn't elicit constant nausea a la sailing. |
The only way to travel.
In fact, I have been known to use trains just for the sake of the journey - rather than the actual destination. And this first report is a case in... [Read More]

Oct 09, 2014 - 8:23 PM - by somtamslap |
Way back when, during days of yore, when a carefree Mr.Slap was literally just that - free of care - it wasn't uncommon to happen upon our hero in a state of thorough and comprehensive intoxication courtesy of a vast range of mind-bending illegal narcotics. In fact, I feel it has, to an extent, shaped my persona of today - as in I'm a bit fucking retarded. |
But alas, those halcyon days couldn't continue; mainly due to the fact that I relocated to old Siam where the merest mention... [Read More]

Oct 09, 2014 - 7:44 AM - by Kurgen |
I want to take my family, wife, kids aged 6 + 13 and myself, and my Mum and Dad on holiday for 3 or 4 nights between Christmas and New Year. |
The kids need a beach, Mum and Dad can't be to far away from western food and I enjoy a beer or 3.
I've been looking at Krabi and Koh Samui but nothing has jumped out at me yet.
I like my creature comforts so a 4 star resort or hotel is what I am more than likely looking for.
Any ideas for these 2 places... [Read More]

The agreement, which will be signed in the Irish Embassy in London by Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald and the British home secretary, Theresa May, will apply... [Read More]

Driving around town the other day, picking up various items for the house. Wife asks me to stop at a market so she can buy some food. After she gets back in the car, and we're driving down the road, she says, "Here try this." I say, "What is it?" - while not taking my eyes off the road. She says "An animal from Doi Tau." I say, "Snake?" and she says, "Haha, no no," and pops it in my mouth. ... [Read More] |
