Hanoi and Halong Bay

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 12 Dec 2012 | Views [352]

My time in Sapa was at an end, I was a bit sad to be leaving but was looking forward to some slightly warmer weather.  My last day was spent doing a cooking class at a mountain retreat overlooking Lao Chai.  Amy, Marie (also volunteers at Sapa ... Read more >

Volunteering in Sapa

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 11 Dec 2012 | Views [1379]

We originally set up this blog to record stories from our big world trip.  That trip seems like such a long time ago now, but since I’m travelling again I thought I would resurrect the blog. I found myself with a bit of spare time after ... Read more >

South Eastern Anatolia

TURKEY | Wednesday, 28 Dec 2011 | Views [431]

By this stage of the trip we were counting down the bus trips left. It was our second overnight bus trip in a week and we really weren’t looking forward to it. The Turkish buses weren’t quite up to the standard of South American buses ie no lazy ... Read more >

Cappadocia

TURKEY | Friday, 25 Nov 2011 | Views [521]

We didn’t get much sleep on the night bus to Cappadocia. The bus stopped every hour or so, turned the light on and basically woke everyone up. I think I got a bit more sleep than Chris, his long legs make it difficult to get comfortable on buses.  ... Read more >

Fethiye and Olympos

TURKEY | Tuesday, 1 Nov 2011 | Views [432]

In Fethiye we decided to do the twelve island boat trip.  Having discovered that it is always better to shop around in Turkey we headed off down to the wharf and checked out the boats.  All the boats do pretty much the same itinerary so it all comes ... Read more >

Gallipoli to Pamukkale

TURKEY | Tuesday, 1 Nov 2011 | Views [538]

It was a fairly early departure from Istanbul as all the later ferries were all booked up. Loading was slightly hectic as all the passengers and cars crossed the same ramp at the same time to board. We weren’t sure what to do with our luggage but ... Read more >

Istanbul

TURKEY | Saturday, 13 Aug 2011 | Views [342]

We were a bit tired when our train arrived into Istanbul.   While we did get quite a bit of sleep on the train, getting woken up a couple of times to get our passport stamped meant for a pretty disjointed sleep.   Still it ... Read more >

Macedonia & Bulgaria

MACEDONIA | Thursday, 21 Jul 2011 | Views [337]

After all the chaos in Albania, Macedonia was a nice quiet reprieve. Chris and I were both getting over colds so we needed a few relaxing days.    Macedonia is almost as cheap as Albania but without the hassle...you can drink ... Read more >
