Long route home Our trip all the way home, trying to catch no planes and stay on the ground like civilised people. It's taking us via India all the way to Europe from Japan, the furthest of the Far East...

A place to lay our heads

COLOMBIA | Tuesday, 3 Jul 2012 | Views [728] | Comments [1]

I should begin by saying that we rarely do things the easy way. On day two of flat hunting, we did find a lovely furnished two bedroom appartment with a landlady who did not need us to have a guarantor. Flat hunting in Colombia has been an experience.... Read more >

A special(s) update...

COLOMBIA | Tuesday, 22 May 2012 | Views [545]

The streets are empty. Hardly a single business has shutters up. We're too high for tumbleweed, but if we weren't, it would surely be blowing down the road. Yet today is a day when few work and most have free time. This is hardly ... Read more >

Cali G

COLOMBIA | Sunday, 20 May 2012 | Views [865]

After a lot of rushing around looking at apartments and going to job interviews, we thought we deserved a break and headed off to Cali in the south for a bit of sun and relaxation. Cali isn't very far as the condor flies and since condors ... Read more >

First impressions

COLOMBIA | Monday, 30 Apr 2012 | Views [792]

Telling folk back home we were heading out on an adventure to Colombia brought two usual responses: a) "you'll get kidnapped" or b) "you'll get murdered".  Well, surprise surprise, IT'S NOT A WAR ZONE.  It's a perfectly civilised ... Read more >

We're on the 83 Karaganda-Moscow train, our 62nd and longest train.  Trains have been the defining mode of transport for us.  We've taken more trains than anything else, covered more ground and spent more time on them.  We did one train in each of Thailand, ... Read more >

[Dear patient and dedicated readers, I am sorry. Oli was left alone  in Helsinki and this is what happened. Personally, I think a pun fest is preferable to jumping in ice pools, joining the Hells Angels or sustaining headbang related whiplash, you may ... Read more >


NEPAL | Friday, 26 Nov 2010 | Views [583]

We started with three guidebooks on this trip and now we have none.  Rough Guide to Japan was left with Christopher in Beijing after 18 months of bookmarking, dog-earing and scribbling in during which it served us very well indeed.  Lonely Planet's South ... Read more >

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Wednesday, 24 Nov 2010 | Views [441]

Peter's St Petersburg, Petrograd, Leningrad, St Petersburg again.  Whichever name you prefer, it's still the city built on bones.  It's still the home of the October Revolution, perhaps the defining event of the 20th century.  It's still brass monkeys ... Read more >

Future shock

INDIA | Tuesday, 23 Nov 2010 | Views [787]

As you can tell from this slightly jumbled round up, our race through this huge country left us reeling - so many glimpses of people's lives, so many stories and so many possibilities. It's hard not to wonder what the future holds for India. This beguiling ... Read more >
