Train Journeys – Yangon Circular Railway

  The final ‘Train Journeys’ from Myanmar. Sorry, meant to have this up months ago but the long queue of things I needed to edit just didn’t allow me time to do the video until this week! So, it was more than a year ago now that I took this trip – seems rather strange …

Dubrovnik – thoughts and photos

Howdy all. You may remember that last week I posted ‘A Day in Croatia’, a summary of a ‘crappy’ day I had in Croatia a few years back now. The day was lousy, I left the next and bar a connection in Zagreb I didn’t go back there. Not to say I would, and interestingly …

First Taste – Luang Prabang (Laos)

Ahhh beautiful Laos. Gentle Laos. Kind Laos. Of a similar size to neighbours Thailand and Vietnam, Laos has only a fraction of their populations at somewhere around 6.8 million people.
