Our first full day in Thailand was hot and busy. We are staying in the Banglamphu area which is the oldest part of Bangkok and where most of the best temples are located.

I stepped outside this morning and the crisp, sunny air and the neighbour’s incense instantly triggered a memory for me.

So I’m sitting there, wondering about kiteboarding. I’ve heard that the equipment is easy to carry around, it’s pretty easy to learn, and you can kiteboard in all sorts of wind from weak to strong.

Death by a Thousand Cuts

Doug Smith
Monthly subscriptionitis is a deadly disease and one that is difficult to avoid. Our house currently has monthly bills for internet access, land phone, unblock-us (ip spoofing), Netflix, Mercy’s cell phone and my cell phone.

New Bike Gear

Doug Smith
I’m another one of those periods again where some of my sporting gear is wearing out. Most of that nice, quality bike stuff that I bought 16 years ago is slowly being replaced.

Doug Smith
Sometimes I wonder if I get a bit paranoid about backups and using my NAS. This usually happens on the occasion that I have to do some maintainance on it.
