Love, Trust, and a little bit of Wanderlust If we don't try we will never know, in the end we only regret the chances we didn't take.

When the Adults came to visit.

Before we had took off back to the UK an old school friend of mine had posted online about needing a house/cat sitter for 3 weeks and she would like someone she knew to take advantage of the offer. She lives in Phuket, and the dates she needed lined ... Read more >

Princess Passengers and Penis Poles

THAILAND | Monday, 21 Aug 2017 | Views [32]

From Samui we headed to Krabi. We had heard good things about it but as with most places we visited we didn't know what to expect.  We had booked a ferry with a different company, and what a disaster. The actual journey was fine, but our transfer ... Read more >

Diving Part 3 - Fun Diving, Koh Tao

THAILAND | Sunday, 20 Aug 2017 | Views [24]

Fun Dive time! It was the day of the trip to Sail Rock. My confidence had built quite a bit on the Advanced Course. I was still cautious but I didn't see that as a bad thing being 20-30ft under water.  It was an early start, we had to be ready ... Read more >

Angkor Wat

CAMBODIA | Friday, 7 Jul 2017 | Views [68]

We boarded the night bus from Sihanoukville, we were the first people on from our pick up, and we spent a little time driving around to different hostels. At one pick up we heard the familiar voices of 2 friends we have been bumping into since Laos.... Read more >

Sweaty Hostels & Smelly Sick

CAMBODIA | Thursday, 6 Jul 2017 | Views [44]

The day had come to collect our visas from the Thai embassy and it all went without incident. We had to wait quite a while but we pretty much walked in, gave our receipt, waited, and received our passports with a big sticker visa inside. Great. ... Read more >

Killing Fields & S21

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 5 Jul 2017 | Views [51]

The main 'tourist attractions' in Phnom Penh are known as the Killing Fields and S21 Prison. No matter how tough you think these places will be, they are worse. It's barely worth me explaining as it won't give you an understanding of the depth of these ... Read more >

Lazy Borders & Livestock

VIETNAM | Saturday, 10 Jun 2017 | Views [64]

Ho Chi Minh also has a Military Museum (lots of places in Vietnam have them and we visited one in Hanoi.) We decided to check it out after being dropped off from the tunnels, and with an entrance fee of 50p each it was worth a look. It started very ... Read more >

Chu Chi Tunnels

VIETNAM | Friday, 9 Jun 2017 | Views [59]

We seemed to have picked a good spot in Ho Chi Minh. The road with most of the bars and restaurants was just around the corner, the covered market was 5 minutes in the opposite direction and there where travel agents everywhere.  Unfortunately, ... Read more >

Cold Cabbage Soup & Crazy Bus Drivers

VIETNAM | Thursday, 8 Jun 2017 | Views [59]

The next morning we checked into our next hotel. We only had one night here. And thank God! The place was awful. It had damp on 3 of the walls, you could see the mould patches. You could even smell the damp the second you walked through the door. Thankfully ... Read more >

Dinner in Da Lat

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 7 Jun 2017 | Views [84]

After 2 fantastic nights in the amazing hotel we really didn't want to leave. It was so comfortable, a little home from home luxury. But we had to move. We had a flight booked from Hue to Da Lat. The hotel provided an airport transfer and off we went.... Read more >

Hot in Hue

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 7 Jun 2017 | Views [65]

The hotel was incredible. We checked in and the reception staff quite happily called the scooter company to tell them we had arrived. They then sent us up to the 8th floor where we were shown to a table set with a plate of fruit and a glass of passion ... Read more >

The Hai Van Pass

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 6 Jun 2017 | Views [51]

Time to hit the road! We dropped our rucksacks off at the scooter shop (they will send them to Hue on a bus for us) and picked up our scooter. We were relieved to see it was pretty new and looked in good condition. Over the past few days we've seen ... Read more >

The Ancient Town & More Allergies

VIETNAM | Friday, 5 May 2017 | Views [143]

It was time for us to move on again. We seem to be moving quickly at the minute. Always on the go! This time we were heading for Hoi An. We checked into a party hostel. The room was fine, the bathroom had a bath but there was no chance I would use it.... Read more >

Airport Benches & Allergic Reactions

VIETNAM | Friday, 5 May 2017 | Views [121]

We arrived back in Hanoi, to the intense craziness. Our flight to Da Nang wasn't until early the next morning, but we decided we would embrace the travellers ways and sleep (ha ha ha) at the airport! When we arrived we were pleased to see the airport ... Read more >

Tiny Towns and Huge Hills

VIETNAM | Saturday, 29 Apr 2017 | Views [96]

As I said in the last post, one of the first things we noticed about Sa Pa was the weather. When we arrived it was warm and sunny, when we headed out for some food about an hour later it was cold and cloudy. From the window of our room we could see the ... Read more >
