Any UK visitors?

Is anyone visiting Phnom Penh from the UK within the next month? I need some brand new football goggles brought over - so I can resurrect my football-playing career - and as I don't trust the postal system between the UK and Cambodia, a personal delivery would be really helpful. If anyone can oblige, drop me an e-mail and we can work out the logistics.

I am heading over the border to Laos in just over a week for my first experience of Laotian hospitality, which everyone tells me is worth waiting for. I'll be travelling from the northern parts of Luang Namtha and Muang Singh and onto Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng and Vientiane, before heading down to the south with Pakse and the 4,000 islands on my itinerary before my first-ever encounter with land-border formalities at Dom Kralor. My brother Tim is joining me for the trip so I expect some adventures en route. Depending on internet access and how much I'll be trying to cram into each day, my blog posts will almost certainly suffer as a result. Be warned.

Last night was the well-attended launch party at Chow on the riverside of The Advisor - a new weekly what's on guide to Phnom Penh. It's the brainchild of Anthony Galloway and his team at Expat-Advisory and promises to be a worthwhile addition to the increasing newspaper media available in the capital. It's got some way to go to match the quality of the monthly food and drink magazine Asia Life but issue number one hit the streets yesterday and will no doubt mature and improve with age, like all of us!

Thanks for your offers to help out with the football goggles delivery. It's been resolved and so the panic is over. I should be playing footy again soon - I hope!
