No place like home...Thank goodness !!! For those of you that know us, you'll already know the story, basically we decided that we've both worked enough (I've been working for 11 years, Danielle for 11 Months) and that we deserve some long overdue R&R and decided to take in some sights....enjoy

Ebino-Kogen, not that we could tell through the mist!!!

JAPAN | Thursday, 5 Jul 2007 | Views [1150]

Another eventful journey - our bus decided to drop us in the middle of no where (almost), and we were definitely NOT up a mountain! We walked through Ebino `City`, which can otherwise be described as a ghost town (we literally saw about two cars and ... Read more >

The city so....unoriginal...they named it twice!!!

JAPAN | Thursday, 5 Jul 2007 | Views [595]

After leaving Hiroshima, we headed south to Fukuoka/Hakata. We already had a fairly hectic train journey, with about 5 changes, so when our train decided to stop at an unscheduled station for over an hour we were pretty confused (and annoyed, we had ... Read more >

Such devastation, but such a lovely place...

Hiromshima, actually quite surprising to us, is an amazing city, and if you didn't know its history and stayed away from the Peace Park you'd probably never know what happend here 61 years ago! The city is clean, modern and spacious, better than most ... Read more >

Konichiwa everyone from Japan! Since arriving in Japan we have both been very good and learnt a bit of the lingo, so much so that i'm sure James' eyes are beginning to slant ever so slightly!! Ok, so we're not bilingual, but by learning a word a ... Read more >

Hong Kong Fuey - Part Two

HONG KONG | Saturday, 23 Jun 2007 | Views [1580]

This time in Hong Kong Danielle persuaded me that staying at the Ibis, just outside the main area of HK was the thing to do, and considering it only cost an extra £2.00 a night, it seemed a good suggestion. As we were more familar with Hong Kong and ... Read more >

Go to China, save some money he says...

CHINA | Friday, 22 Jun 2007 | Views [1484] | Comments [1]

So, as mentioned, our 'saving money in China' scheme didn't really pan out. After a fairly horrendous 22hr train journey from Guangzhou to Beijing (due to the fact that a) The cabins were three bunks high and we were on the very top, b) there was a ... Read more >

The dirty, cramped but colourful city (pt 1)

HONG KONG | Thursday, 14 Jun 2007 | Views [804]

We were both quite excited when we touched down in Hong Kong International Airport, as we both had very high expectations of the place. The journey into central HK was very modern, with high speed trains and a good metro system, but as we exited the metro, ... Read more >

An overnight train to KL

MALAYSIA | Thursday, 14 Jun 2007 | Views [712]

An emotional goodbye was had at Keppal Road train station in Singapore, i'm sure at the final goodbye I saw a glimmer of a tear in the corner of Mr Malcolm's eye, it was more like Niagra in Danielle's!! We caught the overnight train from Singapore ... Read more >
