On January 11th 2015, I said farewell to my family at Heathrow airport as I set off for an adventure of a lifetime. We threw ourselves into the deep end, into the unknown and bravely chose India and as our first destination. As Will and I boarded the plane, I was feeling a mixture of emotions, mostly excitement but also anticipation for what India and the travelling experience would be like. I cannot even begin to describe the vastness of India. One minute we could be laying on the beach surrounded by cows, and the next minute be on camels riding through the desert or searching for wild tigers in the jungle. I experienced many unusual, indescribable sights, smells and sounds. After Seven weeks, five states and eleven stops we had only seen a fraction of what India has to offer.
Our original plan was to go North from India to Nepal but at the last minute changed our minds and booked a plane to Bangkok. The Weather in Nepal at the time was below freezing so we opted for the warmer route, planning to visit Nepal once it had warmed up.
After Bangkok we hoped the Southern Thailand islands by boat, starting on remote Ko Muk and finishing on the developed island of Phuket. After three weeks of relaxing in hammocks on white sandy beaches and searching for tropical fish in the clear blue waters, we decided to go to Sangklaburi in central Thailand near the Burmese border. This small town is a mixture of ethnic identities including Thai, Mon and Burmese, with the majority of the population having fled as refugees from Myanmar and settled in Thailand. We plan to revisit Thailand and go up to the North, once we have finished in Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos.
