Ko Lanta

THAILAND | Sunday, 27 Jan 2008 | Views [1471] | Comments [4]

Hi everyone, After a few days lazing on the beach in Ko Phi Phi, we decided we really ought to start doing something, so we caught the boat to Ko Lanta so we could laze on the beach there instead.... To be fair, we'd done a bit of kayaking in Ko Phi ... Read more >

What can we say about Japan?  It`s fantastic!  After the cold of Russia it was just great to get somewhere where we didn`t need to wrap up for sub-zero conditions and could stroll around in 20 degree warmth.  We arrived pretty jetlagged on Tuesday ... Read more >

First off, apologies for no updates in the past few days but we've been Russian around a bit (sorry - that was Sarah's pun, Phil is denying all input into that one). We arrived in Moscow on Wednesday evening and after a day of sight seeing on Thursday, ... Read more >
