Party travel terrific year 2005, another fantastic 12 months in the life & times of David Herd. Four trips to Thailand, one to Sydney, plus a great round the world adventure to Paris & Brazil with Carnival in Rio being the ultimate highlight. Party travel, eat drink & enjoy life to the max, that’s the way to live.

This is not a travel blog just a personal photo collection.

Ikumi was a student staying in my home, out of all the lovely Japanese students who rented rooms in my home I think Ikumi was the most glamorous.

Kayoko comes to dinner

I met Kayo in 2005 & I am writing this post in October 2014. We are still good friends, in fact she came to visit me in Thailand in 2015, I also caught up with her in Yokohama in February 2016. Are you starting to realize my life in 2005 was dominated by party travel food & friends?
