Our accomodation

Winter in Norway!

After Paris, Sarah, Frank and Zac flew to Sweden for a few days before driving to Norway. Frank had some last minute work to do before heading to Australia, and was awesome enough to lend us his car! This would make it MUCH easier to travel around Norway and Sweden. The trains and buses are great, but they are often quite expensive, and don’t get…

Paris by Night

Paris – A whirlwind adventure

We took the renfe – AVE fast train from Barcelona to Paris which takes a little over 6 hours. The train is comfortable and clean, as you would expect from most European train services. Once we arrived in Paris we caught the Metro (subway) which runs all over the city. It is cheap, efficient, and the easiest way to travel around. We settled into our accommodation and hit the…

New Years in Spain!

A few days after Christmas, we took a SAS flight into Barcelona, Spain to meet up with Sarah’s parents, Scott and Betsy! They had traveled halfway around the world to catch up with us, and it was time for a family adventure before New Years! We started with a late afternoon stroll through the city, and walked to Nova Icària Beach. This popular Spanish beach is host to…

Christmas!

Arriving back in Bangkok our friend Griffin offered us his place for a few days, as he was away for the weekend. When you’re on a budget, free accommodation is the best accommodation. Griffin’s place was in a nice location near the railways and shops, and the best part, it had a pool and workout facilities! What an nice way to relax before Christmas! Having…

The bus

Bus:Phnom Penh to Bangkok

After exploring Phnom Penh, we were ready to get back to Bangkok. After a lot of research, and talking with locals, we found that the most cost-effective way to do this was via night bus to Siem Reap, and then a day bus to Bangkok. Bus 1 – Phnom Penh to Siem Reap Since we were there a few months ago, service appears to have greatly improved.…

Delicious Snacks!

Phnom Penh

Taking the Giant Ibis Night bus from Siem Reap, we arrived before sunrise in Phnom Penh. As we walked from the bus station along the Tonle Sap River, the sunrise was so beautiful that we didn’t mind how early it was. A group of women (and some men) practiced their early morning Tai Chi while others worked out on the exercise equipment in the park along the water. We have noticed…

Angkor Wat

Angkor Park – Siem Reap

Angkor Wat is located outside of Siem Reap, in the Angkor Archaeological Park. This park covers some 400 km² (just shy of 100,000 acres), and is of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia. It holds the ruins and remaining buildings of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. To access the Angkor Archaeological park, you can either hire a tuk-tuk for…

Sleep where you can

Don Det and a scam bus

We only stayed in Vientiane for one day as we found the entire city to be old temples and French Colonial architecture. Having had an overload of temples recently, we wandered the city, found Tintin, ate some food (Dairy Queen!), recovered after the earlier days trips, and booked another night bus to Don Det. The night bus in this case was pretty good. It was a sleeper,…

Mekong Sunset #3

Luang Prabang

After two beautiful days of cruising down the Mekong, we arrived in Luang Prabang. From there we bid our cruise crew farewell and were given a lift to wherever we were going to stay. We hadn’t actually booked anywhere yet so we asked to get dropped off at the same spot as our new friends Sarah and Sam. Their place was booked out, so we went…
