We are a young couple getting ready to embark on our first holiday together. We decided to take the plunge and make it a big one! We'll be visiting India, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Australia and will be using this site to show everyone what a good time we're having :P

Europe » United Kingdom » England » Greater Manchester » Stockport July 10th 2012

Okay, so again we apologise for the break in updates! This update isn't as positive (although those whom we know personally have heard this already.) Unfortunatley, due to some unexpected circumstances towards the end of June we had to rush back to the UK and cut our trip short! We were dissapointed to come home early, although knew it was the right thing to do. Once we arrived home and sorted everything out, we decided to return to Thailand for a month (in late July) before heading to Sydney for a few weeks. We're really excited (again) to be heading out, and will post more blogs and pictures once we get out and travelling again!... read more

Asia » Thailand » South-West Thailand » Ko Pha-Ngan June 18th 2012

Hey guys, We've not really been doing much whilst we've been here. We've just taken the chance to relax for a while...and it's been goooooood. Half way through our week in Samui we booked a minibus tour to enable us to see around the rest of the island (the best way is to rent a motorbike but that wouldn't be a good idea for us seeing as though neither of us can drive!) On the tour we saw various Wats (Temples) including Big Buddha which is Samui's most famous, a super creepy mummified monk, a monkey show, a waterfall (with Elephants at the bottom!) and the island's largest town: Nathon. Apart from that we've been typical beach and pool bums. On our last night we just lazed by the pool and treated ourselves to a couple ... read more

Asia » Thailand » South-West Thailand » Ko Samui June 11th 2012

So on Satursday the 9th of June we left India (following on from our last blog) and flew to Bngkok, Thailand. We flew to Bangkok without any solid plans, with no hotel or forward journey booked. We had however decided on one thing; that our time in South-East Asia will be taken at a much slower pace than we took in India. The flight was fairly short from New Delhi to Bangkok, and as soon as we got through immigration we made the decision that we would try to fly to Ko Samui. At 7:30pm local time, we bought tickets in the airport for the 9pm flight and ran through check-in to the gate. (Grabbing a quick bite to eat on the way!) We touched down in Samui airport around 10:30pm that night and Roxy was ... read more

Asia » India » National Capital Territory » New Delhi » Dwarka June 8th 2012

Hey Everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates on this thing, we've only just managed to get into an internet cafe! It's our last day in India now and we're both sad and happy to be leaving. We've had a strange experience here: there have been things that's we've absolutely loved alongisde things we could do without! On our first day in Delhi we didn't want to waste any time so we dived straight in...this was probably the wrong thing to do. We got quite overwhelmed as obviously we didn't really know what we had gotten ourselves into. The day wasn't completely bad but Delhi is absolutely crazy! We visited a local Bazaar street known as "Chandi Chowk". It's right in the heart of the Old City, across from the Red Fort. We got some food ... read more

Europe » United Kingdom » England » Lancashire » Preston May 7th 2012

I'm writing this as more of a tester really, to see if everything works...but i may as well fill you in on how we're feeling whilst I'm here! As of today it is 13 days until we officially start our adventure...THE WAIT IS KILLING US! Honestly, it is agonising. We're just doing the last minute preparations and then it's off to India! (from Preston via Manchester and London) ... read more
