And so, after spending many lifetimes in Europe, I find myself in Sri Lanka. From the frozen tundra of Estonia to the white peaks of Slovakia, and the rocky peaks of Montenegro to the clear blue waters of Greece, now I’m surrounded by palm trees, curry, and annoying little men trying to sell me shit … Continue reading A Wanker in Sri Lanka
I only spent a short amount of time in Budapest, but this wonderful city certainly left me Hungary for more. Haha, that's why I'm one of Australia's best-loved journalists, and have literary groupies hanging off my balls 24 hours a day. It was late when I got in from Bratislava, but I was determined to … Continue reading Putting the ‘pest’ into Budapest

The adventure is finally underway and I’m happy to say that I haven’t been bashed, stabbed, shot at or blown up yet.

The trip down was very exotic - I sat between … Continue reading A journey of a thousand beers starts with a single can…
