16 May 2013 : The spirit of rebirth is almost palpable as you walk the streets and hear the stories of Warsaw. Wiped off the map in the 19th century, reduced to ashes by German planes and panzers in 1939 and consigned to suspended animation during the four decades of repressive Stalinist rule that followed, this metropolis _ and the country of which it is capital _ has endured a succession of traumatic misfortunes that it has somehow survived, integrity intact, to reassert its proud identity in the 21st century.
16 May 2013 : Not every sporting event gets live TV coverage. But downhill mountain biking competitions do. I'm talking about DH races in Thailand. Really.

12 May 2013 : Only a little more than two hours from the capital of one of the world's most wired, IT-savvy countries lies a gateway to a quieter, unplugged era.
09 May 2013 : It is one of the capital's oldest districts, but mention its name to a foreign visitor and the first association will likely be with the bustling backpacker belt centred on Khao San Road. But to native Bangkokians and long-time residents, a reference to Bang Lamphu may summon up the gleaming-white image of Phra Sumen Fort, its crenellated ramparts dominating the Chao Phraya River and the approaches to Thon Buri, or make them long for Phra Arthit Road and its artsy little cafes or nostalgic for the time they first explored these winding streets and alleyways back when they were students at nearby Thammasat and Silpakorn universities.
09 May 2013 : Thailand has some fantastic mountain bike trails and although my wife and I ride often, we know we've barely scratched the surface. Still, about once a year the urge to go and ride someplace else, with different trails, scenery and culture, becomes irresistible.

09 May 2013 : I used to love Saturday mornings. It was the time when they broadcast Japanese cartoons on TV. One of my favourite series was Doraemon, about a 22nd century cat-like robot who travelled back in time to help a little boy named Nobita Nobi solve his problems by using amazing tools and gadgets from the future that the blue and white cat carried in a fourth-dimensional pocket on his tummy.
02 May 2013 : So close to Bangkok that it is invariably overlooked by day-trippers, Nakhon Pathom is neither an exotic nor a particularly exciting destination. What this town does have in bucketfuls, though, is a tranquil, laid-back atmosphere, good food at reasonable rates and a few spots that are so beautiful you'll probably want to make a return visit.
02 May 2013 : I had visited Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park a number of times but I was never able to figure out the exact location of a scenic all-mountain trail that I heard about from some biking friends a couple of years ago.
