Hi there, we are Rob and Suez from Blackpool, North West England, UK.
From the 2nd June 2009 we're off on a bit of an adventure consisting of 2 months in India then 4 months round South East Asia.

We'll try to keep you updated with our latest stories and pics, if you have any messages or travelling tips don't be afraid to get in touch.
