Hello to all our lovely family and friends!
This is a very simple blog to let you know where we are and how we are getting on. It is also a memoir for us and will hopefully include lots of great pictures, videos information, trials and tribulations.
As most of you know Simon has retired and I am, well, in-between jobs shall we say. A perfect opportunity for us to fulfil a lifelong dream of leaving the 9-5 behind and go and see a little bit of the world. This is life changing for us, mind, body and spirit and you probably won't recognise the slim, healthy, tanned and very chilled out people we will be when we come back!
We are travelling to Gatwick Airport on Sunday 15th January to fly out on Monday 16th. Snow is forecast for Sunday in the London area! We probably won't relax until we are firmly ensconced in our seats on a nice A380 plane and heading into the sky, due to land in Bangkok on the 17th.
Our trip itinerary is as follows:
Bangkok 3 nights
Thailand 4 weeks
Singapore 3 nights
Perth, Australia 5 nights
Bali/Lombok, Indonesia 2 weeks
Hong Kong 3 nights
Vietnam 3-4 weeks
We have booked some flights and accommodation so far, but we don't want to plan too much - we will make it up as we go along!
As the Thais say 'mai pen rai' - Go with the flow or bend in the wind like bamboo!
