On our fantastic trip we travelled a fair few miles, by air, water and land! We stayed in some great hotels, motels, cabins and apartments, and a lovely house belonging to Sue and Rob, friends in Christchurch. We met up with old friends, and made some new ones, and encountered a number of different cultures, attitudes and ideas.
It has given us a great in sight into places we would like to return to and a hunger to see more of the world, near and far.
As the last posting of our blog we have shown a breakdown of what three months of travelling involves! Everyone needs to do this at least once in their lifetime!
- Number of flights – International and Domestic – 25
- Hours spent flying – 96 (4 days!)
- Continents visited – 3
- Countries visited – 9
- Hotels, motels, cabins and apartments – 26
- Boat trips – 5 (including 2 overnight stays)
Definitely a trip of a lifetime!
Last night in Bangkok then home. With the exception of Hanoi it’s been pushing 30 degrees for most of the trip. Hope it’s nice and warm back in England!
Bangkok is a big city, and we only really scratch the surface. Great street food, busy streets and the most friendly people.
After our tour of the canals, it’s off to the grand palace. A truly amazing place with such beautiful buildings, but my word, it was really really busy.
A long tail (James Bond) boat ride around the canals of Bangkok. Complete with Monitor Lizards.
A city break in Bangkok before home. After a super chill out in Krabi there was a little reluctance returning to the madness of a major city. As it turns out our time in Vietnam has acclimatised us well. Unexpectedly Bangkok is a pussycat compared to both Hanoi and Saigon.
Wat Arun – “Temple of Dawn” an incredible spectacle overlooking the river.
Whoa – probably the most touristy place we have visited. Pretty much the entirety of the village of Ao Nang is given over to tourism.
