Koh Lanta Visa Run

So I expected my visa to run out in a few days, did some research on doing a Koh Lanta visa run to Malaysia: Koh Lanta to Koh Lipe to Langkawi, Malaysia via ferry 7800baht, local tour company’s “Visarun Tour” by van 4500baht, make my own way to Krabi and two day car rental to […]

Koh Lanta

Ko Lanta, an island in Krabi Province, is hands down my favorite spot in Thailand that I’ve visited yet. It’s light on tourists, crowds, street markets, feral dogs, mosquitoes, bad smells, and air conditioning (unfortunately)…and heavy on quiet beaches, jungle, lizards, good and cheap food/accommodation, and sunshine. I believe I will stay on Koh Lanta […]

Phi Phi Island slum

The more I travel around Thailand, the more I am solidified in my belief that humanity is a virus. Individually, our only cares are for eating, consuming, fucking, and the propagation of our genes. As a whole, we are a filthy parasitic scum, multiplying and feeding on our host body unto death. The point of […]

Phuket to Phi Phi Island

This morning I folded up every piece of clothing I currently own, as they were draped all over my room to dry after doing laundry a few days ago, and packed up my laptop accessories while humming “On the road again, I just can’t wait to get on the road again…” My flight leaves this […]

Bangkok Craziness

It’s hard for me to believe I’ve been in Bangkok for 10 days already, seems like just a few days have passed. The busyness, fast pace, and overall craziness of the city seem to have swept me up right from the airport. I’ve mainly been staying nearby the Nasa Vegas Hotel, Bangkok, which is near […]

Manila to Bangkok

Jacked in at the Manila International Airport, waiting for my Air Philippines plane arrive to take me from Manila to Bangkok. Wow, Manila is a shithole. I planned my flight from Japan to Thailand so I’d have a night layover here just to see what the city is like. Got a cheap hostel downtown (the […]

Shibuya!

And of course a trip to Tokyo would not be complete without some play time in Shibuya! Mariko and I went clubbing at the Atom club in Shibuya. Atom is an electronic music club, fairly decent DJs, but it was a total sausage fest, I’d say the ration of guys to girls was about 1:20 […]

Hike to Mt. Fuji

I could have taken the bus there, but this rather quite road was begging to be walked and it was only 7km to Lake Ashi and a view of Mt. Fuji. Of course I needed some energy first, and my absolutely favorite lunch spot here was right on the way. Mmm smoked salmon pizza! I […]

Hakone Onsen

Had my first onsen today, and though it was at first a little intimidating, I very much enjoyed it. There were only two older gentlemen frequenting the tub at the same time, so it was a nice and easy way to ease into my first onsen experience. So it’s made abundantly clear that absolutely no […]

Kamakura holiday from Tokyo

For the first week I didn’t really notice it, but after 10 days in Tokyo it was becoming more apparent that the closeness of everything between high-rises, in the elevator, underground, on the train, sleeping in a box, and the shear number of people around me at all times, everywhere I went was starting to […]
