Well, After 158 days, 10 countries, on planes, trains, buses, campervans, cars, boats, motorbikes, mopeds, tuk tuks, ferries, yachts, rafts, bikes, parachutes, surfboards and snowboards we are finally at the end of our trip. It's been thee best experience and a once in a lifetime opportunity! We're so glad we made the decision to take the trip, no regrets. We thought we would be gutted at the end of the trip - though strangley, we are really excited about coming home to see you all. It's not the home you miss but the people. So we have no plans to emigrate anywhere.....
From Vietnam we headed to the crazy "anything goes" city of Bangkok....we only had 1 day there so had to make the most of it. Went to the dentist there (as it's really cheap to see the hygenist only 12 pound each, compared to 50 odd at home). Then we headed to the markets and girly bars - where we seen alot more than we bargained for!!!!! If you get my meaning. Then we headed to the city park where they have an evening mass aerobics session with pumping rave music - there are about 400 people taking part, 1 of which was Brian!!! He's actually really good at the dancing, much better than me.
Then onto our final destination - Hong Kong. Here we've shopped till we dropped in all the cool little street markets - we're expert barginers now! Caught up with Friends from work and generally chilled out.
We've experienced soo many different cultures, met loads of great people. Can't believe we are still in 1 peice, after a few hairy moments on yachts, boats, chepo airlines and motorbikes, and a few dodgy hotels also. We are really looking forward to seeing you all, to show you all the photos and tell you all the travelling tales.
As a little summary:- Favourite place - Fiji (you just have to go, even nicer than the Carribean). Nicest people - the New Zealanders (so chilled out and friendly). Best activity - skydiving. Nicest food - Thai. Scariest moment - motorbiking in Cambodia. Favourite city - Sydney. Best surf - Noosa (Oz) . Best beach - Fiji Islands.
Next stop Scotland for 3 weeks catching up with family & friends, then heading down south to start work in April.....
BACK TO LIFE..BACK TO REALITY...!!!!
