Borneo! After four and a half months of roughing it in New Zealand and Australia we're finally back in Asia where we no longer have to camp or cook for ourselves (unless we really want to).

Welcome to our travelblog page. We initally called ourselves "AfricaBound" because we spent a year traveling around Africa from August 2007 to August 2008.
