Bled, Slovenia

Why Bled? A little pre-season time off gave me a chance to explore one of the new East Loop daystops, something I’m very glad to have done. Staying with Jani and his family at Jazz Bled Hostel is an absolute pleasure, they are so welcoming and friendly it makes you feel right at home from […]

Hevy Festival

Yesterday I came home, tired with my ears ringing, head still filled with the songs of bands I’d heard that weekend.

It’s […]

Cambodia Pt4: Sihanoukville Pt2

Continued from here. Wanting a little less smoke in the air, I headed back to the mainland again, but this time wanted to stay down with some new friends in Otres beach, a couple of kilometres south of Sihanoukville. At first I was worried there would be little to do, but the community along the […]
