NEW ZEALAND | Friday, 24 Apr 2009 | Views [528]

While most people passing through Whakapapa or National Park stop to do the Tongariro Crossing ("The Best One Day Hike in NZ"), we feel like maybe we got to see a bit more of the park... By turning the crossing into a 2-day hike and sleeping ... Read more >

THAILAND | Wednesday, 25 Mar 2009 | Views [420]

Riding on the train from Bangkok to Chumphon, Pete could hardly contain himself.  Not only were the train windows open, making it possible for him to poke his head out into the wind, but Blake would be meeting us at the train station. It was getting ... Read more >

Cambodia

CAMBODIA | Friday, 13 Mar 2009 | Views [624] | Comments [1]

There is so much to say about Cambodia, and we only visited for 6 days.  It was a remarkable place that quickly won us over, and the people seem to have such a great sense of humor.  However, there is also so much sadness here after the tragedies of ... Read more >
