Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve in Singapore is one of my favourite ways to spend time on Singapore island. The nature reserve is very close to the Johor – Singapore Causeway, and hence, once you’ve managed to get into Singapore is fairly easy to get to. On this trip I decided to explore a section of […]

Queensbay Seaside, Bayan Lepas, Penang, Malaysia

Just down the road from the Queensbay Mall is the Queensbay Seaside, which is an interesting area that seems to consist of a strip of land along the coast with a walkway and a cycle track. There is no beach, and no sand, just some small mud flats… The area does seem very popular. When […]

Queensbay Mall, Bayan Lepas, Penang, Malaysia

The Queensbay Mall is big, and a typical Malaysian shopping mall in that it is a mixture of shops, a supermarket, a cinema, and lots and lots of places to eat.

Eastin Hotel, Bayan Lepas, Penang, Malaysia

First time I’ve stayed at the Eastin Hotel. Seems like a pretty good place, but it is in an odd location. As we drove in I saw numerous bars, and a very large shopping mall called the Queensbay Mall. There doesn’t seem to be that much else around. In the past, I have stayed up […]

A day and night in Las Vegas, Navada

Vegas is a weird place… It is doubly weird when you spent the morning hiking in Zion National Park and then end up wandering around the strip in Las Vegas in the evening. All kind of surreal. The casinos are particularly interesting…. There are no clocks, so you have no idea how long you have […]

The drive from Zion National Park to Las Vegas…

The drive from Zion National Park to Las Vegas was uneventful. It was also sad as it really did signify the end of the trip. However, along the route it is interesting as the landscape changes from that of the canyons of Zion Park to the flat desert surrounding Las Vegas. Eventually Las Vegas comes […]

The Archeology Trail – Zion National Park, Utah

Well, this was a let down. It was ‘billed’ as a 30 minute hike of 0.5 miles to see some ‘Archeology’ that showed evidence of early human activity in Zion National Park. The trail head was hard to find as it was quite well hidden around the back of the visitor centre, near a large […]

Larger versions of the above photos can be seen at SmugMug The Watchman trail was great and we were so lucky to have it pretty much to ourselves for the 2 hour hike, accept for the last 10 minutes at the end when we bumped in to two other people. The trail starts at visitors’ […]
