Beach Camping In Kudat

At the moment everything up here at the Tip of Borneo is pretty much free. I say at the moment because I still can't believe a place this perfect exists in 2017 without being overdeveloped to the point of destruction. You can park everywhere for free, you can access every beach for free and no [...]

Sunsets & Waterfalls & Shiny Little Plankton

Lovina Beach is more of a backpacker haunt than Pemuteran and the former can be reached from the latter by bemo, local mini van plying a set route, which you flag down on the side of the road. We were told at our guest house that we were looking at Rp50,000 each to get there [...]

Cooking, Beaches And Kayaking; Standard Palolem

No, Tarrant. No. You may not feed beef momos to the tiny cow. I'm sure the tiny cow would enjoy them but it's kinda like grinding up the postman and feeding him to the neighbours wrapped in a little steamed dumpling. It's the Tibetan bovine version of Sweeny Todd. I'm also pretty sure that's how [...]

You Know You’re Getting Old When…

It's awkward saying hello to your partner who you've not seen for nearly four months when you're queer in India, they've criminalised gays and lesbians here so we could only greet each other with sort of an awkward hug which sucks when all you want to do is snog someone's face off. I had no [...]

Taking It Easy… Even More So Than Usual

I feel like everything has slowed right the fuck down since I got to Kerala. Everything. My natural walking pace has gone from "relaxed amble" to "practically backwards" and my food consumption speed has had to be re-designated "acceptable rate of shovelling," two notches down from the previous "rapid inhalation." The locals are so friendly [...]

A Little Slice Of Awesome

I don't usually go in for beach holidays, partially on account of the fact I get bored easily and sprawling across a sarong whilst my tender, English flesh slow roasts to an unrecognisable crisp isn't my idea of fun. But mainly, it's sand. I fucking hate sand. Sand is way too keen to get into [...]
