Georgetown

Georgetown

Mention Georgetown or Penang to anyone in Malaysia, the reply is always the same: “Ahh good food”. Surprisingly enough, with a response like that, it was firmly on our radar as somewhere to visit.  Along with Malacca and Singapore, Georgetown was a...

Chiang Mai – How to Elephant in Thailand

Chiang Mai – How to Elephant in Thailand

Since Chiang Mai is in the North of Thailand, right by Myanmar and Laos, we naively thought that the weather situation would improve and we would get a bit of a break from the heat. We were wrong yet again. It’s even hotter than Bangkok…wait is that even...

Thailand – Outsider’s Guide to Songkran

Man, are we behind on our posts or what? I’m sorry if the quality of the posts has gone down…actually i’m not. First of all, not much to go down from and second, we have been too busy having way too much fun in Seoul. Okay, so we left off on the last...
Vietnam

Vietnam

12-2011 If there’s a country in Southeast Asia that everybody has heard about, that’s definitely Vietnam. The war in Vietnam captured the attention of the West but centuries before that, almost everybody passed by here, the Chinese for a thousand years, the Khmers,...

Koh Samui – How to Island Hop in Thailand

We got lucky and arrived in Thailand during the University’s spring break. So Suin and her friends had already plan a little trip south to visit Koh Samui and of course try some delicious southern Thai food. My first reaction was to take a bus, then i was...
Malaysia

Malaysia

Entering our 23rd and final country with the Beaut (we’d been to a couple of others on route without her) had mixed emotions. Was this really to be our last border crossing? Would we finally, finally get searched properly? No, it turns out. The border crossing...
Ho Chi Minh City – Madness and Mayhem

Ho Chi Minh City – Madness and Mayhem

Wow, wow and wow! What an introduction to Vietnam! Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is like an over excited child on a sugar rush, wearing bright vivid colours, shouting, dancing and dragging you by the hand to come and explore, and absolutely not taking no for an answer!...

Singapore – Reverse Culture Shock

While shopping for tickets to Thailand in Argentina, we looked at the usual sources like Expedia and Google’s ITA Matrix. And just to be thorough decided to check out Singapore Airlines, we have a bit of history and loyalty with them. The first time i flew to...

800 Days on the Road

Today is a massive milestone for us as we cross the border to Laos! We set out with a dream nearly 5 years ago to see as much of the world as we could by car. 75,568 miles and 49 countries later we’ve lost a few pounds (weight and financial) and gained a...

North Thailand

North Thailand

The mountain roads in the north west of Thailand had been recommended to us, so we headed to the Myanmar border at Mae Sok and started what was to be nearly a week of stunning roads. Pretty much all were in superb condition, with endless sharp corners and steep...
The Gibbon Experience

The Gibbon Experience

Ok, we admit it. We did it – possibly the most touristy thing in Laos. The Gibbon Experience. And what a fantastic experience it was. Yes, it’s expensive: we paid $180 pp for the ‘express’ tour which is two days, with one night spent in the...
