Where we’ve been
In early May 2019 we headed off on our round the world trip, arriving in Bangkok, Thailand. We spent the next few days exploring this amazingly vibrant city, before taking train, boat and bus to Koh Tao, Koh Pha Ngan, and Krabi.
Next we headed to Myanmar, falling in love with downtown Yangon, ticking off a massive bucket list in the temples of Bagan and Mandalay, before we returned to Thailand in early June, then took the slow boat into Laos.
We fell in love with Laos – wandering the streets of Luang Prabang, tubing down the river in Vang Vieng and taking in the sights of Vientiane. But, we had to move on, this time to Vietnam.
The land of coconut coffee and crispy spring rolls, we travelled the length of Vietnam, from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City and nearly everywhere in between. Next up was Cambodia where we immersed ourselves in that country’s sad history, spent time on the beaches of the Koh Rong islands (note: don’t do this in the rainy season!), and perused the galleries and temples of sexy Siem Reap.
As we update this little snippet, we’re in China; one of the lands less travelled by ‘westerners’ like us and so far it’s been absolutely thrilling, as we ticked off another major bucket list item: hiking the Great Wall of China. We’re off to Indonesia and the Philippines next so if you have any recommendations on what to do and where we should stay, let us know!
We are very lucky to have travelled quite a bit… From Austria to Zimbabwe, and many places in between, here are some of the places we’ve managed to get to so far…
