Ha Long Bay

VIETNAM | Thursday, 26 Feb 2009 | Views [607] | Comments [1]

With all of the chaos that is Hanoi, we were quickly ready to make plans to get out of the city.  We made reservations to take a guided trip about 3 hours away to Ha Long Bay.  We made plans to stay overnight on a boat (a junk, actually), explore a ... Read more >


Hello Moto

VIETNAM | Thursday, 26 Feb 2009 | Views [474]

After some of the easiest security I have ever been through and a 40 minute flight we touched down in Hanoi.  We made our way to the "Vietnam Airlines Shuttle" and crammed into the overpacked mini-bus.  The ride took about 50 minutes, but we ... Read more >


Unexpected Adventures in Luang Prabang

LAOS | Monday, 23 Feb 2009 | Views [590] | Comments [1]

Every city we've visited in Thailand offers adventure tours that include an elephant trekking trip.  Even in Pai we came across three tour companies with elephants chained to enclosures, ready to take us into the jungle for less than $7.  This is very ... Read more >


Chiang Mai - Pai - Chiang Mai

THAILAND | Friday, 13 Feb 2009 | Views [959]

Arriving in Chiang Mai was a bit of a relief after Bangkok.  It's much smaller and less chaotic, but still has over 1 million residents and nearly as many tourists.  We did find it much easier to get around as the whole city center is surrounded by an ... Read more >

Bangkok... wow

THAILAND | Saturday, 7 Feb 2009 | Views [569]

We made it to Bangkok... and what a difference from NZ. All in all it took us about 38 hours of travel/waiting time to get here Thursday night around 7:30 pm (local time), but everything went smoothly and I think we are managing the jet lag pretty well.... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Wednesday, 4 Feb 2009 | Views [427]

We've spent five days in Christchurch exploring the city and getting prepared for our SE Asia trip.  It was a nice break from our roadtrip and camping, since we stayed in the same hostel every night (with a bed every night and a shower every morning!!).... Read more >
