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 >
