Yogyakarta, Indonesia

INDONESIA | Wednesday, 23 Dec 2009 | Views [923]

Back in Indonesia for about the 5th time but it has been 10 years since I was last in Yogyakarta, things have changed a fair bit in the last decade too. The city is still mess of people living on top of each other and its definitely not a clean place ... Read more >

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

HONG KONG | Wednesday, 9 Dec 2009 | Views [861] | Comments [1]

Not the fondest memories of Hong Kong to be had. Actually we really don't have anything against the city itself just got a few bad memories from there that are clouding our opinion on the place. For starters the flight into Hong Kong was fairly horrific.... Read more >

Chobe to Hwange

ZIMBABWE | Thursday, 3 Dec 2009 | Views [905]

The whole truck fiasco had a happy ending for us. Not only did we get to keep Linda, Francis (also a driver/tour guide), and their truck for the rest of our tour, ATC felt so bad about the whole thing, that they gave us all a free overnight stay inside ... Read more >

Spitzkoppe to Okavango Delta

BOTSWANA | Friday, 20 Nov 2009 | Views [1701]

We bounced on our rented bus (our tour truck never got fixed) to Spitzkoppe. Spitzkoppe is a series of rocky outcroppings surrounded by completely flat desert. We didn't spend a lot of time there, mostly due to delays caused by our ongoing truck saga!  ... Read more >

Cape Town to Swakopmund

NAMIBIA | Wednesday, 11 Nov 2009 | Views [1477]

Our 21 day over land tour began in Capetown... on a freezing, rainy day. Perhaps I'm a little ignorant, but when I think Africa, I think hot and sunny! It didn't last too long though. We spent our first night of the trip at a winery in the Cederberg ... Read more >

London, United Kingdom

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 6 Nov 2009 | Views [711]

London has been a fairly quick stopover for us between Egypt and Africa. We've had four days here and have certainly had the real London experience. The weather has been absolutely miserable. It's freezing, wet and it is dark by 4.30pm - pretty standard ... Read more >

Cairo, Egypt

EGYPT | Thursday, 5 Nov 2009 | Views [1103]

We flew into Cairo not really knowing what to expect from our tour, only knowing that it would be good to having someone else looking after us for a while so that we could relax and not have to worry about anything. True to their word, Muhammad (everyone ... Read more >

Amman, Jordan

JORDAN | Wednesday, 28 Oct 2009 | Views [1814]

Loved Jordan! Would love to head back some day and travel around Jordan and maybe Syria too. Could be a while, although I am planning to win a packet in Tattslotto soon, so we'll see! We flew into Amman in the evening and caught a bus and taxi to our ... Read more >

Santorini, Greece

GREECE | Tuesday, 20 Oct 2009 | Views [1434]

Massive effort to get from Rome to Santorini in a day! We left fairly early to get to the plane to Athens then after the flight we just made it onto a bus direct to Pireaus port where we were catching the ferry to Santorini. All going well until the ... Read more >

Rome, Italy

ITALY | Thursday, 15 Oct 2009 | Views [847] | Comments [2]

Simon and I caught the overnight train from Munich to Rome. Not a bad way to travel, although our train had no bar cart, and although we toughed it out without a beer for the whole night (I think the Germans have rubbed off on us - sorry Joergfried, ... Read more >
