On the road again_ the South Island flying and skiing

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 27 Sep 2007 | Views [835]

After Christchurch we headed off down south. Leaving the city behind and heading along the road towards the snow capped mountain was a good feeling, after sitting in Cairns for all those weeks dying to get moving again. From the start the driving in ... Read more >

Christchurch, New Zealand

NEW ZEALAND | Sunday, 9 Sep 2007 | Views [704]

Well we have made it to the next place on our around the world trip, the beautiful country of New Zealand. I will probably repeat how amazing and beautiful it is many times in my stories but believe me it is for good reason. Our first sight of the South ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 4 Sep 2007 | Views [560]

Our final day in Melbourne was spent doing another couple of Melbourne sights. We had a walk to the Victoria markets, it was not quite what i had expected but a good place to stock up on cheap clothes and trainers (Sam bought a bargin pair for $15) and ... Read more >

on the road again starting in marvelous melbourne

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 3 Sep 2007 | Views [855]

This place is definatley a breath of fresh air after being stuck in Cairns for what seemed like an eternity. I may be exaggerating a little bit but for those who have been to Cairns and stayed there for more than about 2 days let alone the 7ish weeks ... Read more >

Well we have made it to Cairns in our adopted home, our camperman campervan. It has been a long drive up from Sydney and we have finally escaped the cold and the rain. However, it is a shame to have to give up the van it has been good to be able to do ... Read more >

We arrived in Cairns in the dark and were dropped off at our accomodation straight from the airport. Everything was silet and dark and there were no visible signs of life in the surrounding area. It was not a particularly good start especially when the ... Read more >

G'day Brisbane

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 1 Jun 2007 | Views [705]

You could say that it was a bigger culture shock coming to australia that going to asia. Having become used to life in Asia, the cost, the colour, the people i don't think that either of us were thrilled by Brisbane. We had been excited about Australia ... Read more >

SINGAPORE | Wednesday, 2 May 2007 | Views [746]

We certainly managed to fit in a lot of places and activities in our few days in Singapore. We arrived in the morning on the train from KL which had really comfy beds and pillows and even a window on the top bunk, i don't know what the seat belts were ... Read more >

From tall towers to white sands

MALAYSIA | Thursday, 19 Apr 2007 | Views [1007]

Arriving in KL i was struck by the size of it and some of the 'modern' amenities such as the monorail/underground system. This is certainly a city a world away from some of the places we had previously been. One of the most striking differences was also ... Read more >

MALAYSIA | Thursday, 19 Apr 2007 | Views [917]

So after a quick flight we were back at the KL airport, which as i think i mentionned before is not particularly near KL. The plan had been to get a bus straight from the airport to Melaka but unfortunatley this was scuppered by missing the last bus ... Read more >

CAMBODIA | Monday, 2 Apr 2007 | Views [918]

We arrived in Phnom penh in the afternoon after having taken the super mekong express bus from Siem Reap. Our first choice for accommodation was staying at the lake for a couple of reasons one of the big ones being it was fairly cheap. We soon discovered ... Read more >

CAMBODIA | Monday, 2 Apr 2007 | Views [869]

Arriving in Cambodia was a little different to how i expected it. We got to the airport which was very nice and new looking we got straight through the visa line no problems and all the atm machines (there are a lot) give out the coveted US dollar. We ... Read more >

luang prabang

LAOS | Monday, 2 Apr 2007 | Views [800]

Having decided to forego any long journeys on any type of land transport we limited ourselves somewhat (by our choice of flights) to Luang Prabang and Pakse and the surrounding areas. I have already covered some of our time in Luang Prabang in another ... Read more >

From Wats to waterfalls

LAOS | Monday, 2 Apr 2007 | Views [791]

After only and hour and a half and another good flight with another on board meal we arrived in Pakse. Impressions of this city were not so favourable as those of Luang Prabang had been, it is not a city of UNESCO heritage material. It was a change of ... Read more >

We left lovely Chiang Mai by plane for our first flight on Lao Airlines. For those of you who may have heard of it, its history in a previous incarnation as Lao aviation was not a very safe one. We decided that flying was the way to do Lao after looking ... Read more >

chiang mai

THAILAND | Tuesday, 27 Mar 2007 | Views [877]

It was certainly a change to be inland without a beach within reach but for me at least it was a welcome one. Flying into Chiang Mai we saw what looked like from the air to be a fairly tidy city surrounded (albeit at a distance) by rolling hills. On ... Read more >
