Elephants, Rainforest and 'Clever Pig'
May 13, 2012 - Chiang Mai, Thailand
On our second day in Chiang Mai we decided to do a day tour. I'm not really a day tour person, but after  couple of very good ones in Australia, this did seem like the best way to make the most of our very short time in Chiang Mai. So slightly dubius but also excited, Ed and I jumped in the back of the rattly open backed van/bus that came to...

Mount Fuji
July 18, 2010 - Mount Fuji, Japan
We took the bus from Shinjuku to Kawaguchiko 5th station (the starting point for most Fuji climbers) and arrived at about 10pm.  The air was cold and not at all humid so it was a great relief after the hot sticky nights of Tokyo.  We ate some energy snacks and drank our jelly drinks and filled with excitement and anticipation we followed the...
