Hey Danny and Adam
I'm pretty sure you're the Danny and Adam I met at Maartens house in Thailand. Just a thought as I was skimming through, if you're stuck, you could try couchsurfing.com. If not directly for accomodation, someone might be able to point you in the right direction with local knowledge etc.
You have to join and all that stuff, but if you want me to make enquiries for you I'd be happy to. I've already joined.
Have a cracking winter season!
