If your two weeks includes getting there and back my recommendation would be to stay in the western fjord region. There are some brilliant roads to do. I overestimated how many miles per day I could do...

Re: New toy :-)

I've been thinking about one of these for my trip in the summer so I'd be interested to hear what you think about it once you've used it. It gets good reviews.

Survey: Sleeping Bag Temp ratings

why in the buff? Surely more layers = more warmth? a bag is designed to reflect your body heat and create a layer of warm air around you, if you wear clothes the clothes will stop the bag warming up inside so that you will not feel the benefit of the bag. If you get really cold the most you should/...

Survey: Sleeping Bag Temp ratings

Sleeping bag temp ratings are a nightmare - too many variables to make it simple and no universally recognised system. Having said that there is a useful description that you may find helpful here: http://www.wildtrak.com/page.asp?id=31 Buy down and add a silk liner if you want to boost the warmth r...

It's a great great site. I was looking at the possibility of motorail to Erdine for future but loads of other good info on it.

Re: Singapore

Singapore is not that big so everything is fairly easy access from the airport. Taxis are not that expensive. I haven't stayed in a budget hotel there, but they do exist. Have a look on tripadvisor before booking. Chinatown is good to visit. Fab foods and great markets. The Long Bar at Raffles is ic...
