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've been on a few mini adventures before but nothing quite as big as this! Our general idea is to meet a lot of people, see a lot of things and take as many pics as possible.
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.
