    The sleep of the enlightened

    Brunch, Published on 25/11/2018

    » At the entrance gate of Sekisho-in, an old temple at Koyasan, or Japan's Mount Koya, two monks were sweeping dry leaves from a pathway. We dragged our luggage, walking past them with a slight feeling of awkwardness.

    Dodging the bullet

    Brunch, Gary Boyle, Published on 07/10/2018

    » One of the best things about travelling in Japan is the fast and convenient Shinkansen. The bullet trains can whisk you from Tokyo to Kyoto in as little as two hours and 20 minutes. Or you could, like 34-year old Gabriel Camelin, a video and photography lecturer at Silpakorn University, do the same trip on your bicycle. The route through the mountains is 570km and can be done, if you're as brave and fit as Gabriel, in just seven days.

    Borneo to be wild

    Brunch, Published on 23/09/2018

    » Landing in Kota Kinabalu, we weren't sure what to expect. The name, to most globetrotters, conjures up the sky-piercing Gurung Kinabalu -- a mountain whose conquerable peak of 4,095m entices both novice and serious mountaineers from all over the world.

    From Goya to El Greco

    Brunch, Chaiyot Yongcharoenchai, Published on 01/07/2018

    » Walking through the crowd after arriving at Gran Via metro station in Madrid, my hands turn cold, my lips dry and my heart rate rises to match the rhythm of the drum being beat by a street performer nearby. Here I am again, standing in the same country that I first visited only one year ago.
