The long way home After 3 years in the UK we're off back home to NZ, but not before attempting to rid ourselves of the dreaded travel lurgy.

Home Sweet Home

Well, its over...we are back in New Zealand. As nice as it is to be home and see family and friends we are missing the bumming lifestyle of backpacking BIG time. I remember when we set off we were hoping that we would rid the travel bug but it feels ... Read more >

The last time we wrote we were in the Mekong Delta and on our way to Vinh Chau, the village where my parents grew up. We got there after a long moto ride and, well there’s not much there. I suppose that’s what I expected but, there really is not ... Read more >

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 12 Mar 2008 | Views [810] | Comments [3]

We were a bit concerned about arriving in Vietnam as we heard a lot about scams and theft from other travellers AND my mum and dad. They weren't wrong (within an hour of arriving we met a girl who had her pack, passport and money stolen) but employing ... Read more >

Our time in Laos has come to an end and what a beautiful country (this may be because it reminds us of NZ!) First stop was Si Phan Don (4000 islands) which introduced us to the Lao culture pretty quickly. The next 3 days were spent on our hammocks ... Read more >

Holidaying in Cambodia

As I type Sharan and I are having an unscheduled night in (nothing to do) Stung Treng, as our Laos visas didn't arrive today as expected. The guesthouse has been kind enough to give us a free room though, which is nice except it's quite dingy, has plastic ... Read more >

After a few tear filled goodbyes we made it to Thailand...eventually. Our plane was delayed in Dubai for 5 hours and when we were landing in Bangkok some psycho started to beat up this passenger and there was blood flying. Unsurprisingly the Emirates ... Read more >

We met up with Pri, Gabs and Anil one day at Oktoberfest (Munich beer festival) and Des, Loz and Mel the next. Needless to say many steins of beer were consumed with lots of general silliness and singing of German songs we didn’t know the words to.... Read more >

Yes, Vien popped the question at Neuschwenstein castle in south Germany. After apparently carrying the ring for 2 months (suprised he didn't lose it!) the timing and place was awesome. We are both happy and are giving you all warning of our wedding so ... Read more >
