    ^^ I don't want cold. &, it looks like Taiwan is colder than I initially thought, so I might head further South.

    ^ hmmm, that does appear to be the case.


    Apparently, Hainan is very nice, so I Googled, looks interesting:





    Looks interesting, so I checked the beaches:

    Have a Bromance go camping in the bush with Terry his got a nice tent and a comfy ground sheet be nice just the two of you under the stars .
    You can take turns catching dinner and disscuss all manner of intresting subjects much more intresting than a Chineses beach holiday.
    Fascists dress in black and go around telling people what to do, whereas priests... more drink!

    I'd travel China by train.

    Take in the south.

    Then up and around to all the major sites and places. Private cabins. Traveling days watching the countryside go by the dining carriage window as you eat, drink Tsingtao, read, and lose money to the locals playing card games you don't understand.


    Thinking back, the filthy chin fookers weren't filthy at all on the trains. Though we were probably sealed off hermetically from the cattle class carriages.

    I've don't the train from Beijing to UB a couple of times; first class with gf: normal 4 berth by myself.

    No need to do it again. I don't really fancy China at the moment.

    Take one of those cheap flights you talk about to Japan, then connect with a long cramped flight to Honolulu, and pick an island to relax on. The wife would like that.. Visa becomes an issue though.. Osaka/hnl Air Asia cheap as chips..

    Fabulous place to relax and explore. Unesco world heritage site.
    Best time of the year, no humidity day time, cool to chilly nightime - bring a sweat shirt.
    An option, with a trip from LP to Chiang Kong against the traffic up on the Mekong. Two leisurely days and sleep over on the boat = don't get involved in the tourist scrum for a bed at the stop over. From CK down to Chiang Rai/Mai and fly out.

    ^ spent 6 months in Kiwiland after uni days. I did like it, especially South Island, but probably would need a really good flight deal to head that way.

    Watched the Auckland Blues at Eden Park back in the day when they were the top team and full of superstars.

    Jeez that's a while back these days. Auckland used to dominate NZ rugby, now not so much. Speaking of rugby though...

    Randomly thought of you the other day when I got a newsletter from my alma mater. As per usual there was a list of 'Notable Alumni' (also as per usual I'm not on it) that includes Dylan Hartley and Teimana Harrison, both Northampton and England. Poaching fuckers!

    Liam Messam, Israel Adesanya, Danny Lee and Craig Newby are a couple of others incidentally.

    Yeah, maybe a good one.

    At the moment, after spending two days fuking around on Korean websites that don't work, I don't really feel enthused to go anywhere... Especially as it's the holiday time and everything is double priced (excluding HK which is very cheap...).
