The Mandalay Bike Tour – Grasshopper Tours, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma) – part 4 of 4

After the farm we ventured on down dirt tracks into the countryside and the rice fields where we saw both traditional, and ‘Chinese Water Buffalo” (see photo below) at work. The rice fields were amazing. They were quiet (apart from the noise of the engine of the Chinese Water Buffalo), and oddly there didn’t seem to […]

The Mandalay Bike Tour – Grasshopper Tours, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma) – part 3 of 4

One of the highlights of the Mandalay Bike Tour was visiting a farm. Getting out of Mandalay by bike was relatively quick and painless. It was quick as we didn’t have to go too far to leave the city behind and it was painless as there were no hills.  Actually, there was some pain as even […]

The next stop on the Grasshopper Mandalay Bike Tour was a nearby village (immune.soaks.optimists) which was a short ride from the ‘words biggest book’. In the village, we stopped for a drink, and a snack (included in the price of the tour), and for a little look round. The first thing that caught my eye […]

After the excesses of the Grasshopper Breakfast Tour, I decided that I needed to get some exercise so I signed up for their local Mandalay Bike Tour, which meant this time I would be pedalling myself. The Mandalay Bike Tour lasted for just over 4 hours and took me out of Mandalay to visit some […]

Around the streets of Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma)

One thing I just love doing in any town, city or village I visit is to just wander around looking (being noisy) and taking photos. When doing my ‘wander’ I always try tom respect privacy and local customs and traditions, but at the same time, I am always on the lookout for new and interesting […]

The Breakfast Tour – Grasshopper Tours, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma)

I decided to do the breakfast tour of Mandalay with Grasshopper Tours – map – neckline.marbles.elevates, and I wasn’t disappointed. A great tour! Loved it, and excellent value at $35 US. For the breakfast tour, I was taken around Mandalay by trishaw and had my own local guide. And, if I have one piece of advice […]

Breakfast in Hong Kong

On my first morning I had some trouble finding a place for breakfast, and my usual approaches (FourSquare and the ‘net) couldn’t and didn’t seem to be any help, and in fact FourSquare just seemed to give random answers. I later discovered that the problem was with my phone in that it was struggling to […]

Riverwalk Tandoor Restoran, Gelang Patah, Johor, Malaysia

Back in Malaysia after a couple of weeks away, and the Riverwalk Tandoor Restoran was my first stop for evening food. The restaurant is a little hidden away, but is is worth the effort of finding it as they do great Indian food. The place also has a sister restaurant in Singapore where you can […]

Full House, Friday Street, Henley-on-Thames, UK – the price of chips

By on July 5, 2015 in UK with 0 Comments

Full House, Chinese Restaurant (well, really it is a take-away, or what I would call a ‘chippy’), is located at 10 Friday Street, Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire, RG9 1AH, United Kingdom, and it is your standard small town chippy, and it does great chips. During the Henley Royal Regatta (HRR) the town of Henley-on-Thames has […]
