Happy New Year!


Happy New Year to everyone and have a great time in 2016!

This year has seen a lot of changes for me and a lot has happened. Changes are always good and it's been a very interesting year.

Starting the year in London and finishing it in Vietnam in my own coffee shop and bar is something I'm very happy about but  this would not have been possible without a "little help from my friends".

I am sure 2016 will be equally as interesting and who knows where I will end the year this time round.

Merry Xmas and the Way Back to Hue


Merry Xmas to everyone and I hope you're enjoying your holidays!


Mine are coming to an end and it's time to head back to Hue.



After a stopover in Saigon, I arrived in Da Nang at around 19:00 and set off on my bike for the drive back to Hue.

The Batu Caves


In order to do something else and get a bit away from the main city center, I went to the Batu Caves today.



It's always quite interesting and vibrant to stop by there and the views are also quite nice.



It was not very busy and there was some rain but this made the visit quite enjoyable.



It's always nice to see a temple built into a cave as it provides for a great backdrop and the Batu Caves are very nice.

In KL

 `
It was another hot day in KL, despite that it was still nice to go for a walk and take some photos around.




After visiting some temples in Chinatown, I headed to KLCC where I did use the waterproof capabilities of my Olympus TG-4 to take a slightly different shot of the Petronas Towers.




The combination of Olympus TG-4 and Ricoh GR is great but I do wish the Ricoh GR would be waterproof and rugged so I would only need one camera.



In the evening it's nice to walk around the market on Petaling Street or the Central Market.

Evening Walk in KL


Walking around KL is always best at night because it's cooler, more people are out and there is a bit less traffic around.




Chinatown and Merdeka Square are quite nice areas to walk around.




There was a festival in Merdeka Square, or more precise two festivals combined. It was cool to see some traditional dances and costumes combined with Sci-Fi costumes and light saber battles.



It made for a very nice evening and it was fun to see everything and take photos, any events in Asia are usually very laid back and relaxed so it's easy to enjoy them. There just are less restrictions and regulations, it's more about having fun and a good time.

Jogja Drive


After having problems with my back and not doing much the past days, I did go on a drive around today.




It was great fun and the weather was also much nicer, without any rain although quite hot.




Driving on a motorbike around the countryside is always great and I really enjoy doing this in Asia.



I only took the Olympus with me and it did a great job, not GR quality but easy to use and I never have to worry about it.
