Nice to see you are both well and coping
Well this year really does suck dogs nuts. But I take pleasure in hearing your ISO adventures and enjoy catching up with what you are both up to. One day we will be able to re-visit, until then take care xx

And then there was curfew
Coming from Sydney I am appalled and also puzzled how Victoria could have bucked the happy minimal infection record of Australia in this Covid 19 Pandemic. The infection rate figures from Victoria are staggeringly high compared to the other States which only seem to have infections from the odd Victorian who has slipped through State cordons. But it proves one only need one infected person exercising apathy, denial or simply does not care to cause a spike and potential infection explosion. I can't understand the mask or no mask debate...of course wearing them makes a difference. Last night Victoria entered nighttime curfews for six weeks being some of the most stringent restrictions in the World. May this bring the scourge under control. Keep safe and sensible...and may everyone play their part and rid us of this pandemic thing.

All in the same boat!
Hi Craig, We both enjoyed your blog. Interesting to see how you are faring on the other side of the planet. We can't compete with your wildlife but we did manage to see a fox on a roof. We too have our fair share of "stupids" who make a bad situation worse & a PM who can't decide whether to make mask wearing mandatory. Roll on a Covid-free world & that next tiger sighting. Stay safe guys. Kathy & John

Thanks !
Hi Kathy and John. Lovely to hear from you. You take care as well. Hopefully we may see you again one day- I want to go back to India again - whenever that may be. Craig.

Siem Reap
How lucky were you to witness (and capture) that absolutely gorgeous sunrise over Angkor Wat! I've visited twice and bummed out with the sunrise both times. I'm envious of your civilised / brilliant plan to only temple-hop in the mornings and rest in the afternoons... on the last trip, we covered quite a few temples in two days and were so hot and tired that we couldn't appreciate the temples as much as we should have. I'm not sure how I've missed your blogs before, but have really enjoyed reading these Cambodian posts. Cheers, Ren :)

ISO 2.0
Hi Craig, I really enjoyed this post. I'm from Melbourne (living in Tassie) and have been feeling the pain of all my family and friends having to go through this six week stage 3 lockdown thing all over again. I know Dan and the Department of Health / Human Services could have done a better job, but they can't be held responsible for the entitled, selfish, stupid idiots who live among us :( And now it looks like NSW might be going down the same path. Thanks for the descriptions and photos of the wildlife, they are a welcome distraction. I love the photo of the fox on the roof! I haven't lived in Melbourne since 2007, but fox numbers seem to have risen quite a bit... Take care and good luck with the hunt for masks. Cheers, Ren

Loved your latest blog, brought back happy memories of our visit in 2009. At that time they were constructing the Marina Bay Sands had no idea how amazing it would be. Btw loved your butterfly shirt, looks fab.

Thank you for allowing us to tag along on your India adventure. I'm pleased you enjoyed so much about my favourite country. It truly has everything, even though its people don't. The one place on your itinerary that I've never visited in my twelve journeys around this incredible land is Tadoba - and you managed to see some of the animals there which I've missed too. I've added it to the list for a future visit - and future visits there certainly will be!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this blog. As a frequent visitor to India (and Udaipur - my favourite city), it was refreshing to remind myself of the first time I experienced the colour, chaos and curries of this amazing country. I must remember your Jane Doe ruse too - I'm married, but my wife dislikes India and I usually travel alone; it would save so much embarrassment explaining that my wife is at home in the UK because she hates obvious poverty, lack of hygiene and spicy food!

great photos & enjoyed reading your blog
My husband and I lived in Botswana for 5 years and loved it there. It was a long time ago 1977-1982, but reading your blog brought back such wonderful memories. So glad you had a great experience - we also had a wonderful time when we went up to the north to "game view". We have many moments that we used to call "our National Geographic moments" - thanks for the great photos (you might want to label them for others that aren't familiar with the game and birds of Botswana) - nice to see that after all these years it sounds like it hasn't changed much in the north - very happy to hear!

Thanks Janice for your comments. I actually have a Flickr website with all the images for those interested. It has many of the species named, and has had many many views. (I think Travelblog strips links) : see here:

Wandering baboons scared the hell out of me in Africa! Hey so if we do the 'bush salute' in Oz due to pesky flies, what do you do in Africa to fend off pesky baboons?
