762 to Pai

762 corners Chiang Mai to Pai

Another stunning day greats me, hot again at 7am, up to my coffee shop for breakfast, then back to hostel and Tane, Loes, Brenda and me get into our mine bus to Pai. 120km takes 3.5hrs and the mini bus driver tried to do it in record time, I’m sure, tyres squealing every 2nd or 3rd corner, didnt even slow down when Brenda started throwing up. Tane slept for the trip, how I will NEVER understand, Brenda, she was not well, Loes looked after her and Issac and me got talking to Ollie , the English guy next to me. Continue reading

Tales from a tour bus…

I have been inspired by a friend to start a blog of my travels… My name is Simo, I’m a tour guide in Australia taking backpackers across the southern desert and south west of W.Aust… I love travel both world and domestic… this is my first go at blogging, so here we go….For the last 9 years I have been a tour guide for Nullarbor traveller tours, taking back packers around southern Australia, bush camping and accommodated. The past 6 years have been spent driving across the Nullarbor Plain on 10day bush adventures, camping rough under the stars in some of the most isolated places in the world. Work consists of driving, surfing, swimming, some cooking, chilling in the sun on the beach and drinking beer around the camp fire at night with amazing people from all around the world (haha yeah sure). As you can probably understand…. I LOVE MY JOB! I do this incredibly hard work for 9 months a year and have 3 months off…. So what to do with three months with out work….? Well i have decided to see the world…. well as much as i can… So far Vietnem 2yrs ago and Thailand this year… And everything going right next year I’ll travel Africa with a friend Mel, from ‘the Mellyboo Project” a complete blogaholic and one of the craziest people i know…
