Affiliate Summit West 2015

I missed it last year so am really looking forward to getting back to Vegas for some blackjack, craps and roulette. No meetings before midday this time, live and learn! I first went to affiliate summit in 2012 and in my opinion it’s the best show of the year. TheĀ  location, the parties, the sheer volume of people that attend. It’s not one to be missed! Hope to see everyone,...

Local Sims

Travel and work – a tough combination. One thing that makes it infinitely easier is to purchase a local sim card with 3G data. I’m typing this from a hotel room in Cambodia. The hotel’s wifi like most hotels in SE Asia is questionable at best. Having a local sim card allows me to tether a connection from my phone to my laptop which is good enough for 99% of...

ATW: Singapore

Overall Singapore is the best city I have ever visited. It was like an oasis of calm after travelling in Sri Lanka and India for three weeks.

Public transport around the city is top notch, the tube (MRT) is easy to understand and...

Fort Cochin is a small Portuguese colonial town with a few things to do and see. They have a fish market where you can buy freshly caught fish and then take it to a restaurant down the road who will cook...

ATW: Goa

I’ve finally got round to setting up a category for travel stuff and have set a redirect at jamesbachini.com/atw Goa was a lot of fun, I’d love to go back between December and January because it gets pretty crazy apparently. In off season it’s quiet with not many western tourists. Beaches are beautiful, traffic is a little calmer than Mumbai although all the drivers still love their horns. Food is...

Mumbai Reality

Dharavi is the most populated slum in Asia with over a million people living in a square kilometer. It’s an incredibly eye opening place to visit because of the way the people there just get on with their daily business. With conditions such as running water limited to 3 hours a day you’d think the people would get down. It’s incredible to see smiles on the faces of kids as...
