/raises hand.

I’m in the Philippines.

I’d recommend the Philippines if you have the time and money.
Believe me you don’t need that much money. :D

it’s a lovely part of the world. true that you don’t need much money, but factoring in flights and scuba diving it still adds up.

@Glenn – It’s an awesome part of the planet. Way better than Ireland right now ;) What countries did you visit; any places you think I should definitely check out?

I visited Hong Kong, China (twice), Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Sabah, Philippines, South Korea (here at present), and Japan.

It sounds like you met the Minsk man in Hanoi… Oh the memories! I’m guessing you bought the Minsk?? i did, and the breakdowns in the middle of nowhere were the best part!!

I’m not sure what you’re into, so i don’t like to advise you something inappropriate. I can give you a bit of advise about motorbiking Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand. Diving Thailand, Sabah and Philippines. Send me a PM with any questions… i’m happy to help if i can

and happy hols!!

@dextrous, mabac and solwyvern

I hadn’t thought about Singapore or The Phllipines but since I’m in the area, why not?

If I make it there I’ll PM you guys and we can grab a beer :)

@Glenn

Wow that sounds like a cracking trip! I got the bike in Dalat, a old rusty Honda Win but she purrs like a kitten when I’m driving. I’m gonna PM you about crossing those borders with the bike. Apparently I don’t even own the bike I paid for (Vietnamese rules for foreigners I think) so am kinda worried it’ll get confiscated when I get to the border.

Now, I’ll just have to get something (besides my PhotoDune items) approved so I can meet you too! I never did thank you for the advice about trying the Babi Guling in Bali…so thanks!

How about NEPAL (between India and china – the world’s two most largest countries)???

It’s an Incredible place and here we’re celebrating Visit Nepal Year now so, the visa is free I guess… I bet you don’t wanna miss this place :)
