Singapore – Big City, Bright Lights and Big Nights

Singapore – Big City, Bright Lights and Big Nights

I landed at Changi Airport in Singapore on time and was looking for a quick exit. With a little luck I’d make it into town to catch the second half of the AB’s v Aussie rugby match. If there was one airport in the world you would pick to be fast, it’s Changi Airport. I can say without doubt this is the best airport in the world. Unfortunately the speed process gods were against me just when I needed them most. Suffice to...

Malaysia – A Race, A Game, A Birthday And A Boat

Malaysia – A Race, A Game, A Birthday And A Boat

Exiting Thailand was really easy. Entering Malaysia was just about as simple. A small fee (3.80 Ringgit) and a stamp of the passport was step one. Easy. A visit to the immigration inspection booth lead me to the office of the head honcho to get my carnet de passage (Boris’ passport) stamped and I was in. Easy. I was aware I need some 3rd party car insurance. They were 100 metres past the entrance. A small fee for one month and I was...

Hello India – Leg 4 begins

Hello India – Leg 4 begins

Hello India, It’s great to be back!! After an extended stay in Singapore (waiting for my delayed vessel to leave Port Klang) I flew back to Kuala Lumpur to collect my shipping documents, and then onto Kolkata on Tuesday. It was a great few weeks relaxing but I’ve been getting itchy feet waiting to get back on the road. I’m now in central Kolkata and have begun the process of arranging for Boris’ container to clear...

Thailand – Changing Plans, Racing the Clock and Bangkok Dangerous!!

Thailand – Changing Plans, Racing the Clock and Bangkok Dangerous!!

Entering into Thailand was pretty straightforward to be fair. Things were going pretty smoothly on the border crossing front. I was back on the road and heading for Bangkok where I was planning to leave Boris for a few weeks before entering Myanmar. Well, that was the plan until about 1pm that day. The fateful email from our Myanmar tour agent broke the bad news. Trouble on the India side of the border had led to the Indian government...

Laos – Lovely and Luscious, A Real Forest Retreat

Laos – Lovely and Luscious, A Real Forest Retreat

After China, Laos was always going to be about rest and relaxation. If there is a better spot than South East Asia for doing exactly that, then tie me down sport, and call me an Aussie!!. The instant you enter South East Asia the shackles come off, the pressure dissipates, stress disappears, you start to feel relaxed immediately. In this part of the world there is no hurry, no need to rush. Everybody is happy and smiling. Friendly faces...

Are those the Petronas Towers? They sure are!! – Leg 3 is complete!!

Hi All, Boris, Kiwi Ted and I raced into Kuala Lumpur yesterday to complete Leg 3 of The Great Game Expedition in fine style. We made in right on schedule to meet my Dad for his birthday, and watch the All Blacks smash the Aussies 47 – 29 in the Bledisloe Cup rugby test. The third leg of the journey had a little more drama and excitement than I’d expected. Now I’m focussed on preparing to ship Boris to India. The journey...
