Reminiscing About Leg 3 – The China to Singapore Photo Gallery

Reminiscing About Leg 3 – The China to Singapore Photo Gallery

While I was stuck in Quetta (Pakistan) last week I had the chance to reminisce about previous sections of the journey. Leg 3 from China to Singapore was the toughest, most frustrating and challenging section of the journey.

If you are new to the blog or just fancy spending a few minutes exploring China, Laos,...

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.

Crossing into Thailand from Laos with Your Vehicle (At Vientiane / Nong Khai)

Crossing into Thailand from Laos with Your Vehicle (At Vientiane / Nong Khai)

I recently crossed into Thailand from Laos at the Vientiane / Nong Khai border. As I was after a 60 day visa for me and my truck I thought I’d share the process I went through. Exit Vientiane Drive your vehicle as far to the front as possible then park and get out. Head to any of the offices with your departure slip and passport. Hand it in to one window (for immigration) and you should get it back from the next window. Then you got...
