FRANCE | Sunday, 23 Aug 2009 | Views [857] | Comments [1]

apologies for taking almost a month to update you all on our adventures but in the few times when we've had internet access in the past three weeks facebook has unfortunately taken precedent, or failing that we've been booking things etc. and i didn't ... Read more >

ITALY | Tuesday, 28 Jul 2009 | Views [2322] | Comments [3]

SO after a not very exciting series of flights from santorini to rome, and a very expensive train ride into the centre of town (but what were we to do? not go into rome? ha!), we arrived at Termini Station and realised we knew the name of our hostel ... Read more >

78 hours of travel (a new record) and finally ATHENS

GREECE | Wednesday, 15 Jul 2009 | Views [831] | Comments [5]

so as Vivienne last left us (i believe she mentioned something about my complete loss of dignity in front of a large crowd), we were sitting in a Bangkok internet cafe killing time very effectively. well, there is little to report of the journey between ... Read more >

an epic amount of travel, and the very worthwhile end result.

THAILAND | Tuesday, 30 Jun 2009 | Views [787] | Comments [4]

HEY HEY HEY since we last left you, iona and i have discovered a new limit to the amount of time that can be spent on an undeniably crap asian bus. before we had to travel from vang vieng (near the top of laos) to koh tao (at the bottom of thailand) ... Read more >

general hilarity and intoxication on the mekong

LAOS | Wednesday, 24 Jun 2009 | Views [4725] | Comments [3]

we were a bit sad to leave luang prabang, but it's common knowledge that the most fun thing to do in laos is undoubtedly 'tubing' down the mekong near the town of vang vieng, an activity which basically involves jumping in a truck tyre inner tube and ... Read more >

2 days on a boat and our general journey to laos

LAOS | Friday, 19 Jun 2009 | Views [3840]

bangkok, being really mad (what we do best)

THAILAND | Sunday, 14 Jun 2009 | Views [705] | Comments [1]

Our actual travel to bangkok from siem reap was relatively uneventful, as we managed to avoid the infamous "scam bus" with the help of some somewhat appreciated parental intervention before we even left australia. basically, we flew, which ... Read more >

temples of angkor + iona's 18th

CAMBODIA | Friday, 12 Jun 2009 | Views [633] | Comments [1]

SO we are no longer in cambodia but it seemed like we would be missing a fairly important part of the trip if we didn't tell all about siem reap in cambodia- home of angkor wat and various other ancient and photogenic temples. we made ourselves at home ... Read more >
