Sucking the surf from Indonesia to the Pacific

Mario, part owner and operator at the Surfing Village, at his home break straight out the front of his bungalow, somewhere in Sumatra...wow

Teahupo has nicked Sumatra’s thunder this week. It’s sucked the swell (and the surfing world’s attention) from Indo to the South Pacific. Watching the latest hot heavy weight surfer in the belly of the Tahitian monster, or Slater surf a 5”11 has been almost worth it, almost. No worries though because in Indo, with a [...]

Koh Phi Phi – Paradise in the Mist

Take me to that beach!

  True to their word, the maxi-taxi driver picks us up on time and delivers us to Phuket Port where we ferry across under stormy skies towards the dramatic looking island peeking out from the mist.

Batu Caves Bright and Beautiful

It’s free entry; we wander through the gates and past a magnificent 15-metre green statue of Hanuman the trickster monkey, past [...]

A lot cheaper if you pre-purchase them online, try The Man in Seat Sixty-One website for some great deals. Kuala Lumpur appears on the smoggy horizon past miles [...]

Arriving in Singapore is an adventure, especially if you are lugging large surfboard bags around! We find it nigh impossible to find a taxi to take us to our hotel – the information counter recommended that we hire an entire bus for $50SGD – until we bump into a friendly Mr Orr, maxi taxi driver who offers [...]

“I googled you last night!”

Kiwi woman; silly bird

I have been guilty of cyber-stalking potential beaus – seeing a good-looking guy get into a car with a website advertising his company splashed across the door is pretty much the same as him handing me his phone number, right? After a few clicks of the mouse there he is; marital status, photos, friends – [...]
