Shoppping, Eating and Drinking

VIETNAM | Friday, 29 Jun 2007 | Views [1048]

Hoi An is a smallish town, about 30km from Danang, that is heritage listed. It is full of cute little streets and gorgeous old buildings, many dating from the 15th Century when Hoi An was a busy trading port. It has a really interesting mix of Japanese, ... Read more >

Mountains and Beaches

VIETNAM | Friday, 29 Jun 2007 | Views [480]

From Saigon we travelled inland to the highland region of Dalat. Apparently the mountains around here are really beautiful (we did catch a glimpse of them from our bus) but we never made a special trip out to see them. We got distracted by the food and ... Read more >

4.5 million Scooters

VIETNAM | Friday, 29 Jun 2007 | Views [703]

Ho Chi Minh City (herafter Saigon) is a real shock to the system. We had thought that our weekend in Bangkok would be a nice way to ease us into the SE Asia experience, but realistically NOTHING could have prepared us for the sensory assault that is ... Read more >

Memory Lane

SOUTH AFRICA | Sunday, 17 Jun 2007 | Views [649]

We flew back to South Africa from Zimbabwe, picked up our cute blue VW Citi Golf which we christened Charles and drove to Lydenburg. This is the town where I was born and I really wanted to go back and check it out, and show Pete where I was born. It ... Read more >

"Guys! Thats not how you do the hokey pokey!"

BOTSWANA | Sunday, 17 Jun 2007 | Views [1310]

As most of our trip has been done independently, with the occasional day or overnight tour, we were wary of doing a tour. But issues like the situation in Zimbabwe convinced us that a tour would be the be the best option, so we signed up to do a 7 day ... Read more >

Soweto

SOUTH AFRICA | Sunday, 17 Jun 2007 | Views [496]

Our trip to South Africa was yet another eventful trip involving a cancalled flight out of Bahrain. The people at the Gulf Air desk had fairly thick accents, so I thought that we had been rerouted on to Eritrea Airlines, but luckily he was actually saying ... Read more >

Croatia - the postcards don't lie!

CROATIA | Monday, 21 May 2007 | Views [1252]

We spent two weeks in Croatia, and we would rate it as our favourite Eastern European destination! Reading the lonely planet we were a bit worried about Zagreb - it said that may people don't like Zagreb immediately, and we had too little time there ... Read more >

Budapest

HUNGARY | Monday, 21 May 2007 | Views [641]

To me Budapest was a bit of a shock to the system. Strange, because when we were traveling through Central America we were hanging on for the 'easy' european travel experience. And travel here is easy - in terms of infrastructure, but they have forgotten ... Read more >

Mulled wine on the banks of the Vlatva River

CZECH REPUBLIC | Monday, 21 May 2007 | Views [713]

The last time that I visited Prague (in 2001), I rated it as one of my favourite European cities, and it still is. Prague in the springtime is gorgeous, if a little full of tourists. It was great being there in the week leading up to easter, the city ... Read more >

The UK

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 21 Apr 2007 | Views [350]

Pete and I parted company in the Uk - a "scheduled break". I went to see my great Aunt who lives in a little village while Pete caught up with Brett and got aquainted with the London Pub Scene! My Aunt lives in the village where AA Milne lived, ... Read more >
