And that was that...

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 25 Sep 2010 | Views [389]

Well folks, we are now safely in the UK and pretty much recovered from our jet lag, although our trip from Bangkok to Paris was not without adventure... We were all ready to depart Thailand having checked our luggage and received our boarding cards ... Read more >


We're forever blowing bubbles... doo, dee, doo

THAILAND | Tuesday, 14 Sep 2010 | Views [554]

You will be glad to hear that we didn't drown while we were in Koh Tao, not even close. We are now certified open water divers, and with an additional dive a couple of days ago, we are now qualified to dive by ourselves to 30 metres. The trip to Koh ... Read more >


What a dive...

THAILAND | Tuesday, 7 Sep 2010 | Views [469]

Well folks we are coming close to wrapping up this amazing tour of SE Asia and we are trying to go out almost the same way we started, with a few quiet days on the beach, with a wee scuba diving course thrown in for good measure. After almost two days ... Read more >

Wat a lot of temples... just don't mention the rouge

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 1 Sep 2010 | Views [479]

Well folks we have made it to what we thought would be a highlight of this holiday, and believe us when we say that Angkor Wat did not let us down. Although we didn't have a spine tingling moment on arrival at Angkor Wat three days ago, the place is ... Read more >

Another Kiwi Cafe, wine and more border woes...

CAMBODIA | Thursday, 26 Aug 2010 | Views [552]

Well folks we are currently reporting to you from the capital of Kampuchea (as the Khmer people still refer to it). We arrived in Phnom Penh this afternoon, although it seemed a little touch and go at one point. Yes, our border crossing wasn't the most ... Read more >


Big Groper's in Quy Nhon...

VIETNAM | Sunday, 22 Aug 2010 | Views [1159] | Comments [1]

Well our intrepid explorers are well on their way to Saigon. We are currently stopped off in a seaside city by the name of Quy Nhon, about 350kms south of Hoi An and about 650kms north of Saigon. The train ride here was pretty straight forward by Davis-... Read more >

One pink silk suit, and lots of sun...

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 18 Aug 2010 | Views [459]

... ok so we decided against the pink suit for Christopher, but were sorely tempted by the crushed velvet ala Austin Powers. Yes, we are now in Hoi An and it is everything that we expected it to be. It is a relatively small town on the coast about ... Read more >

A day off in Hue

VIETNAM | Saturday, 14 Aug 2010 | Views [506]

The sun is shining as we look out across the balcony from our third floor hotel room (might as well be a suite). We have a computer in the room for internet access, satelite tv, a/c and a fan... and all this for $25 NZ a night. It is a nice little ... Read more >


Chicken club sandwiches in Ha Noi

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 10 Aug 2010 | Views [276]

It has been a bit of mission to get to Ha Noi but we finally made it after three days of bus travel. We are finishing up our third night in the capital of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. It is quite a contrast to the last capital we were in, Vientiane, ... Read more >


One small capital city and some more rain...

LAOS | Tuesday, 3 Aug 2010 | Views [382]

Well folks we have made it to Vientiane, the rather French sounding capital of Laos (we are still debating as to whether Laos should be pronounced with an 's'). At just over 250k, we think that the capital is about twice the population of Dunedin, so ... Read more >

Cycling, sun tans and kayaking in a developing country...

LAOS | Thursday, 29 Jul 2010 | Views [514]

Well folks, we are just wrapping up in Luang Prabang and thought we should add a little update about what we have been up to over the past 3 to 4 days. We have been busy. You last left us in the rain in a small northern town called Luang Nam Tha. The ... Read more >
