Well, we can't believe that it's been 2 years since our last big adventure. India is still so fresh in our minds. We're heading back to Asia and this time we're travelling though Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia with a quick stop-over in Istanbul. So many places to look forward to and so many new people to meet. It should be a lot of fun and above all..... no snow.
As before, I'll try not to bore you with hundreds of inane photos and endless ramblings. Short and simple. If you're not interested please feel free to remove your address from the list.

See you all soon and enjoy the winter.
We started our tour in Bangkok which is a BIG city with lots of hustle and bustle. Quite interesting but very full of pollution, traffic and tourists. The highlights were the Royal Palace and the reclining Buddha.
After Bangkok we travelled by overnight train up to Chiang Mai which was a sleepy little town in the foothills.
The boat ride down the Mekong
This is one big Buddha and it's reclining.
River was outstanding. We were on the boat for two days and we stopped at several small villages and a cave full of Buddhas.
We're having a fabulous time so far. The people are so happy and friendly and we've been lucky with the weather.
