With the exception of the month off in South Africa where we rented the car, and a few days in between trips (Cape Town - 5 days and Nairobi - 5 days), we've been on a Drago/Encounter truck since about September 22nd 2007. It's been very tough at times, but also very enjoyable at other times. For the most part our groups have been pretty good, there is always going to be the one or two people on the trip that don't put in the same amount of effort as others, but that's group travel for you!
Now we're off to Mombasa to enjoy a little bit of luxury (4 star resort on the beach) before heading back home, to the 'real' world.
Welcome to our travelblog page. We initally called ourselves "AfricaBound" because we spent a year traveling around Africa from August 2007 to August 2008. At that time, little did we even think that we could go on another extended trip. Somehow through much perseverance and determination we were able to save up for yet another extended trip, this time as sort of a honeymoon. Our current itinerary has us traveling from July 2010 until December 2011 through Central Asia, China, New Zealand, Australia and then back up to SE Asia, Nepal, India and then finally Japan.
