An idle kind of life

by noreply@blogger.com (The Doctor) @ Readjustment road

There are several very good reasons why a 29 year old man should not be living with his parents. It doesn't take very long for these to become obvious once more, having spent several years since my last prolonged stint with my folks.

One of these reasons is that in order to use the internet I have to lie on my front on the floor of their dining room. Combine it with the facts that it's such a pain in the arse to reconnect, I am not working, most of my friends have left Edinburgh or are actually working right now, my girlfriend is a million miles away, and as a result I am spending a worrying amount of time prostrate next to the dinner table in front of a computer screen.

At present, I am right in the middle of a little 4 week stint back at my parents flat, before I (and Hana, when she arrives) move into my brother's spare room for about 5 weeks. That gives us time to look for a 1 bedroom flat once the Edinburgh festival and Fringe have packed up and taken their ludicrously inflated flat rental prices (and our jobs) with them. Needless to say, our flat will have WiFi.

Price check one. Key cutting in Vietnam = 5-10,000 VND (20-40p) Same 2 minute operation in UK = £3.50. Before any Vietnamese key cutters out there reading this start packing their bags to start up a business in Edinburgh, be warned:

  1. It's pissing with rain.
  2. Cut one key for 10,000 and you can get your lunch. Cut one key for £3.50, and you're still about £7 short for your bowl of Pho.
  3. Nobody will understand your pronunciation. You won't understand anyone else's pronunciation. Neither of these will improve with time.
There is no Vietnamese community in Scotland. Maybe the food is too healthy. Take that out the equation and you're not gonna get Vinatown suddenly springing up somewhere just off the Dalkeith road. I've got kind of sidetracked here...

Anyhow, tomorrow morning I'm on a train to Slaley Hall, Hexham near Newcastle for the weekend to spend a few nights in my brother's timeshare lodge. Golf, gym and Wet 'n' Wild...

Leap of faith: hiking to the vertiginous Tigray churches

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

I was feeling uncharacteristically nervous. It wasn’t the narrow ledges with sheer drops that had me spooked, but the prospect of climbing with ropes – something I’d never done before.

On viewing Abuna Yemata Guh, however, you can understand why ropes are sensible. This rock-hewn church in the Gheralta region of Ethiopia is carved into the side of a vertical spire of rock with 200m (650ft) drops on all sides. To reach it, you must scale a sheer wall of rock and inch along a precipitous ledge, all in bare feet. In fact, Abuna Yemata Guh is said to be the world’s least accessible place of worship.

HKCC Raiders vs Tai Po Dragons

by @ HKCC Rugby - Match Reports

JJ Nazer & Kaiwan Turrel

#1 The first 72 hours of 2010.

by noreply@blogger.com (The Doctor) @ Readjustment road

Note* This was drafted months ago and appears here in - more or less - it's original form. I need to close out this countdown so I can concentrate on updating people with what has been happening and is planned for the coming months.

Am I cheating by quoting a period of 3 days? Don't care. By paraphrasing the modern philosopher Tassell "It's a vibe". December was undoubtedbly the most depressed I have ever been. On crutches, my comeback on two legs- particularly on the football field- shattered, and facing a year out of football, never to play for my team again was bad enough but upon our return from a fantastic stag weekend in Phuket, I slumped to a new low. A not inconsiderable number of friends were voicing their displeasure for Saigon, the recent parallel that I had drawn with Thailand, facing what could well be our last complete family Xmas plus a very sombre juncture in time all conspired to make mid December such a difficult time for me.

However, I made a couple of people share my baggage, and things began to look up. Things certainly took a positive spin at the Apollo Xmas party, and I looked forward to New Year with genuine lust for life. An intimate house party for those Apollo-ites who were working on the evening of the 31st was held at our house. Of course, we subsequently hit TNR (which had never smelled better) where, in a throwback to the first time I met Casey, everyone was having a good old bug-eyed time and the celebrations eventually wound up at... forgotten the name of the cafe upstairs on Do Quang Dao... when life for the Saigonese had begun yet another ordinary day. And for me, 2010 brought a fresh new beginning which enabled me to really embrace my final months in SE Asia.

Without getting too publicly soppy, Hana was (without being too literal) the one thing about Saigon I am taking away with me. And the best thing. I mean, I love my Phuket Spicy 7's winner's medal, don't get me wrong. Again, I'm at risk of harping on about the Raiders, but my piece on them has come and gone. Raiders are in my past and Hana is in my future. Wherever the hell that will take place!

Best-selling camping and hiking gear of 2017

by Peter @ Atlas & Boots

In general, I don't tend to spend much money on clothing and non-photography related gadgets. I am comfortable enough loafing around in jeans and a t-shirt. On top of that, I hate shopping with a vengeance. If I really focus, I can avoid shopping malls for most of the year, succumbing only in the lead up to Christmas.

That said, outdoor stores are a different kettle of fish. I can while away hours wandering the aisles, leafing through maps and checking out the latest lightweight gadgets.

World’s most powerful passport 2018

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

Ten years ago, in my first job after graduation, I shared an office with a guy called Munir who I nicknamed Dr^2 because he not only had a PhD but was also qualified as a medical doctor. (I recognise it’s not the wittiest name in the world but it was the best I could do at the time.)

Munir loved learning British colloquialisms (“armchair critic”, “fairweather friend”), played loud Arabic music while he worked and held a Jordanian passport. One day, he came into work clearly frustrated and announced that he was giving up on travelling. Stationed in the UK for three years, he thought he would have a great opportunity to see Europe while he was here. Alas, his passport was so restrictive that securing visas became distinctly Sisyphean. He as a doctor (twice over) had fewer rights than I did as a new grad just because of our passports.

REJSEBREV FRA EVENTYRLIG EKSPEDITION PÅ FILIPPINERNE

by ITA @ Insight To Asia

Her kan I læse en spændende beretning fra vores 5 dages øhop, fra Coron til El Nido på Palawan. Dette er en helt unik rejse, hvor man har mulighed for at opleve et af de smukkeste steder på jorden, nemlig Palawan, måske det sidste ægte uspolerede paradis på jorden, denne eventyrlig ekspedition på Filippinerne er en enestående oplevelse, en mageløs expedition, der vil tage jer til steder i ikke trode eksisterede.

Dunedin Thistle AFC

by noreply@blogger.com (The Doctor) @ Readjustment road

Having just seen El Clasico, read all about the Raiders's impressive showing in Manila, and being presently stuck between a cancelled Sunday game and a cancelled training session thanks to the snowfall, this seems about as good a point as any to reflect on the way my own amateur football involvement has been going.

Rewind a little and Floyd's acupuncturist told me I should wait about a year before "returning to the bench" in December last year. He also mentioned during one of the 3 $50 sessions I attended that the healing process was based around 50% dietary, 20% exercise related, 20% pills intake and 10% down to his methods. There left me little doubt that I wasn't going to keep paying $50 twice weekly when I could stop eating sugar and boozing and improve my condition for free. Not that I was ever going to do either of those. Although I now take milk and just the one sugar in my tea instead of two.

Anyway, playing in goals for Raiders towards the end of my time in VN gave me a taste again and the confidence that I could get back involved in football without risking my leg for a third time. I had toyed with the idea of doing some refereeing, but I thought there was still some game time left in me yet.

I had a look on Gumtree for clubs needing a goalkeeper during pre season and emailed a couple. Links Utd, the first one to get back to me invited me along to a training session which was largely pre-season running. Having purposefully avoided pounding tarmac with my twice broken leg, this run up and around Arthur's seat was torture and only the last 5 minutes was in any way related to my skills or development. We had a game that midweek which I featured for the last 20 minutes after their existing keeper had ruined his clean sheet by trying to dribble round a striker, and managed to keep the score at 2-1.

However the intense pre season fitness schedule meant that I was burdened with pain at the site of my recovering double fracture and I skipped a couple of training sessions, only managing to make another 20 minute substitute appearance for them. It turned out there were 3 different keepers in the frame for the team and I wasn't feeling confident enough in my leg strength to battle it out for a starting slot.

Subsequently I was prepared to content myself with pick up games of 7's or whatever I could get with friends. However, after a 5's tournament with an ex-colleague, I was forwarded an email appealing for a half-decent 'keeper from another ex-colleague, and went along to one of their pre-season friendlies to see the existing 'keeper blunder his way through the second half to lose them the game 6-5.

This was my number 1 shirt. There was no able competition and an agreement that I train when I could. After a single training session, we had the opening game of the season and earned a 4-2 victory at or home ground. I played well, bookmarked www.justkeepers.com and loaded up my credit card.

Unfortunately, a couple of months later, we haven't won a game since and my performances have been somewhat less impressive, masked by the fact that we have only been scoring a goal a game, and not really threatening to beat anyone. We should really be a solid mid-table outfit, but have been left with 5 points out of 6 games due to ill-discipline, an inability to deal with the long ball and laziness.

My leg has turned a corner and I rarely feel leg pain anymore, only wincing occasionaly when performing twisting landings, so I have been training nearly every week. I have been picking up new injuries more frequently than I would like but that's something I'm having to accept as par for the course now.

There is a small Spanish contingent in our squad, and they introduced a goalkeeper who came along and impressed during the same training session that I nearly broke some fingers. He then got his chance in the weekend game where we had played for 87 minutes with 10 men after another debutant was dismissed for a headbutt, and despite taking a 2-0 lead, we drew 2-2 against an inferior side. He has since been unable to play or train due to his work commitments and I have not lost the jersey.

My expectations of this league were of aging squads, a lot of on field hostility and dirty challenges. What has been surprising is the youthfulness of most of these teams. The more senior players have been a lot calmer, less prone to go into savage challenges, which would prolong their playing careers.

Compared to Vietnam (which will inevitably evoke a wave of sentimentality for SRFC), we only have a referee, so offside calls are dubious and don't help my teams attitude to the validity of long ball tactic that opposing teams invariably adopt. I have played 6 games and spectated at one where I was injured, and there has not been a single photo taken. Team spirit is conspicuous by it's absence. And we are facing a winter shutdown because the snow has arrived. Our captain has walked out on us because he felt unappreciated for taking the team in the absence of the main two in charge.

So the focus is now on playing well personally, enjoying my football, avoiding injury and identifying an 11's team in San Jose.

Exploring Gondar castle in the ‘Camelot of Africa’

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

Gondar castle is improbable. It’s improbable in size, style and design, but mostly in location. After all, this is Ethiopia and if TIA is to be believed, we should be looking at desertscapes dotted with baobab trees, not a Camelot in the sun.

Gondar castle in the fortress city of Fasil Ghebbi indeed evokes legends of yore. This shouldn’t be such a surprise given the Great Mosque of Djenné and Africa’s other architectural wonders, but I find the evocation of medieval Europe astonishing, perhaps more so because as Ethiopians will tell you, theirs is one of only two African countries that were never colonised (the other being Liberia).

"Miss Saigon' arrives in San Francisco

"Miss Saigon' arrives in San Francisco


SFGate

Like that musical, which is set during civil unrest in France, "Miss Saigon" takes place during wartime - a love story between an American GI and a Vietnamese woman. Try 17 semis full of sets (compared to nine or 10 for "Les Miz" ) - which include a 1959 Cadillac, a 15-foot statue of Ho Chi Minh and, yes, a helicopter, which actually "flies" in and out as the protagonists flee the incoming communist takeover. [...] mostly, this $12 million production is down to a science. Since 1995, more than 2.3 million people in 30 cities have seen the traveling production, which has been performed over 1,000 times. "Pretty much anything colorful flies in the air," says Egan, pointing skyward to hanging backdrops for hotel scenes, beaded curtains, street vendor carts, even Ho Chi Minh, suspended above the stage like an enormous Christmas tree ornament. There are also 450 costumes, 60 guns of varying sizes, four smoke and fog machines (and 1,600 pounds of dry ice needed each week to create the fog), nine miles of electric and sound cable, and 12 computers to run the automatic functions of the show.

Atlas & Boots’ top 10 posts of 2017

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

Let’s face it: 2017’s been a bit of a dumpster fire. The consequences of Brexit are becoming clear here at home in the UK while over the pond in the US, Trump’s administration has promised disaster for the environment.

At Atlas & Boots, it’s been a mixed year. On a professional level, we passed 200,000 monthly users on the site, hit a milestone in monthly income and accepted an invitation to become brand ambassadors for Lonely Planet. On a personal level, however, we’ve had serious illness and bereavement in our families. So, yes: a mixed year.

Little By Little, One Travels Far - Saigon - Travel Diaries - make your travel diary online


Travel Diaries

We arrive in Ho Chi Minh at around 4 AM. We went on a tour of the Mekong River, which was really pretty! We got to wear the traditional hats and sat in the little boats as they took us along the river. We got to try these coconut toffees and this amazing honey. However, the tour was disappointing as we were only doing the one day tour and not the two day, so they took the two day tour people to the floating market and left us behind to wait for them, which really sucked. Afterwards, Markus and I spent the evening wandering around Ho Chi Minh seeing all of the sites. We came across this market style place for Street Food. If you go to Ho Chi Minh, I highly recommend it! So many options. We then watched the Germany vs France game with some more Germans in our hostel, but this one was better as I was talking to another guy about travel advice and much to my pleasure, Germany lost to France!!July 8, 2016After only having 2 hours of sleep from the soccer game and the time of our bus to Siem Reap, we realize that our bus is not a sleeper bus and is in fact a regular seated bus. This was horrible, because trying to sleep on those buses is super difficult. Somehow I managed and we made it to Cambodia with no problems at the border! Upon arrival we were picked up in a Tuk Tuk and dropped our things at our hostel and started exploring the night market. The surprising thing about Siem Reap is how much of a party town it is. Not only is there a Night Market, but also a Pub Street, which has lots of pubs and clubs on either side as well as lots of street food. We didn’t stay out long as we had a 4 AM start the following day to see the temples.

Exploring the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela

by Peter @ Atlas & Boots

The rock-hewn churches of Lalibela in Ethiopia are the most extraordinary man-made sites in sub-Saharan Africa. Here’s what we learnt from three days exploring them.

The 11 Ethiopian Orthodox rock-hewn churches of Lalibela are a focal point and a place of pilgrimage and devotion to Ethiopian Christians. In mid-January during the Timkat (Epiphany) festival, thousands of white-clad Ethiopian worshippers, descend on the churches. For tourists, the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela are an unmissable stop on tours of Ethiopia’s historic northern circuit.

Lost time - setting the scene

by noreply@blogger.com (The Doctor) @ Readjustment road

Since my last post there have been several readjustments, and I would anticipate one more big one before too much longer. Now is a good time to backtrack and comment on some of the things which have happened in the last ~3 years, without doubt more than which happens to most people in their complete lifetime, certainly geographically. Thankfully not medically. Where I last left you, I was in mid-winter 2010/11. I don't think the decision to move to Costa Rica had yet been set in stone, but I certainly wasn't hanging around in Scotland much beyond that point. It should be noted that the obvious choice for me, Japan, was shelved yet again based on one or two factors, one of which did not include the Tohoku earthquake and resulting nuclear leak. Staying within the International House network, wanting somewhere tropical and Spanish speaking, the choice came down to Mexico or Costa Rica. IH Mexico's reputation reached nowhere near the level of IH Costa Rica, and the decision was pretty much made at interview. So after a month's layover in Central USA, a 2 week road trip in a little red convertible, some US sporting events, a bit of snowboarding, lots of frozen margaritas and craft beers, it was off to San Jose (Chepe).

Simien Mountains National Park: trekking Africa’s Grand Canyon

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

If Simien Mountains National Park really were ‘Africa’s Grand Canyon’, how was it that I knew nothing of it? Was this just Peter’s ploy to drag me out camping again?

I knew of the park by name, but couldn’t point to it on a map, or tell you what I might find there. To be honest, prior to planning our trip, I had no idea there were proper mountains in Ethiopia – a result perhaps of TIA syndrome which conjures dusty, flyblown vistas and not the vast gorges of lush beauty that populate Simien Mountains National Park.

And, so, I set off with my expectations in check. After seeing the fiery furnace of Erta Ale, the yellow lakes of Dallol and the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela and Tigray, I thought I’d seen the best of Ethiopia. But, no, this inscrutable country had one more gem to sell.
