  • A long and painful 20 hoursToday we had a few days to kill before we got on the Ghan, so we decided to check out Casanova at the movies (actually, Heather decided it would be Casanova - I wanted to see Jarhead). I guess the Posted by jefranklin in James & Heather Travelogues | Feb 24, 2006
  • James Franklin is unwellActually, I am not too bad really. Today, we went on our wine tasting tour. You know how whenever you go on one of these, there's always one couple that seems to get drunker than anyone else, always keeps the bus Posted by jefranklin in James & Heather Travelogues | Feb 22, 2006
  • Next Wrap UpTime to wrap up the last few days methinks. In my last post, we had arrived at Halls Gap and I was raving about it. We ended up staying there for 2 days, as it was really charming. What sold it for Posted by jefranklin in James & Heather Travelogues | Feb 21, 2006
  • Melbourne -Great Ocean Road - GrampiansJust a quick update today as I have not been doing any daily entries on my Pocket PC and I only have 7 minutes left! The last week was spent flying from Hobart to Melbourne, and overnighting in a hostel there. Posted by jefranklin in James & Heather Travelogues | Feb 16, 2006
  • Week 1 wrap upOk, we have now been travelling for one week (sniff, sniff only 25 left) so it's probably time for first thoughts... Tasmania is a gem of an island, although it is pretty easy to feel isolated if you are a techno-nerd Posted by jefranklin in James & Heather Travelogues | Feb 12, 2006
  • The Loby Awards[i]The most popular question we get about our travels is, "So, what was your favourite place?" In order to give the most thorough answer ever, we have compiled the following best of the best, worst of the worst, and Posted by Lis.L in Let's Go Get Lost | Oct 5, 2012
  • India – AgraYou are in a deep sleep in the sleeper class cabin of an Indian Railways train bound for Agra. Before hitting the hay, you read and signed off a document which told you to beware of people on the train Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Sep 25, 2012
  • Per-day Costs for Twenty-two CountriesBefore we left for our trip, Toby poured over other blogs in order to get a better idea of how much to budget in each country. As an expression of thanks to those writers, we have decided to share Posted by Lis.L in Let's Go Get Lost | Sep 9, 2012
  • India – VaranasiIf India was a first date, you would be wondering how you managed to be at dinner with Shriek . When you first arrive you immediately notice the dust, rubbish, cow pats, ever present touts, relentless traffic, vehicle horns, smog Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Aug 14, 2012
  • Vietnam – Halong BayProbably what I had been looking forward to most in South East Asia was saved till last. Ha Long Bay is a world heritage site and one of the new 7 Wonders of Nature. Legend says that the Vietnamese people Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Aug 11, 2012
  • Vietnam – Hoi AnVietnams most picturesque city, Hoi An´s old town has kept its traditional buildings, small lanes and tailor shops. After coming through a few of the big cities, this change to a nice small more peaceful city was great. And to Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Jul 28, 2012
  • Vietnam – Central BeachesLeaving Ho Chi Minh on a sleeper bus for the 6 hours or so up to Mui Ne, it was the same type that we had in China, with rows of forward facing seats come beds. We had booked our Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Jul 25, 2012
  • Vietnam – Ho Chi Minh CityIt’s had a new name since 1975, but it’s also got a lot of modern history. Ho Chi Minh City also has about 10million people with a further 7 million motorbikes calling it home!! Trying to cross the road, it Posted by dbgomes in There and Back...

  • Cambodia – SihanoukvilleAhh, the beach again. Circling up through the highlands for the last few weeks has made us miss the relief that the sea can give you from the hot and humid weather! Sihanoukville is the premier beachside destination in Cambodia, Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Jul 10, 2012
  • Cambodia – Phnom PenhFor 3 years and 8 months from 17th April 1975, Cambodia went through the most radical social reformation known when Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge swept to power following years of civil war. Within days, Phnom Penh was a Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Jul 10, 2012
  • Cambodia – Angkor WatFor 500 years up until the 1300’s the Angkor civilisation was ruling this part of the world. They consolidated this rule with building many temples in the ancient capital. The Angkor past is so deeply woven into the Cambodian peoples Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Jul 2, 2012
  • Laos – 4000 IslandsThe island of Don Det was our intended destination amongst the other 3999 islands that sit in this part of the Mekong river.

  • Laos – The Kong Lor Cave LoopSEVEN people SIX bikes FIVE year old cave guide FOUR nationalities THREE days TWO flat tyres ONE AWESOME ADVENTURE (ZERO accidents) That pretty much sums up a great addition to our travel in Laos. By chance we saw a paragraph in the Lonel Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Jun 26, 2012
  • Laos – VientianeVientiane feels more like a rustic little town rather than the capital city of the country. You only need a couple of days to see the main sights and eat the good patisseries and baguettes that the French left behind. [map=279632 Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Jun 21, 2012
  • Laos – Luang PrabangCrossing the border to Laos has apparently slowed the earth’s rotations. Well that’s what it feels like in the extremely chilled out town of LP. The whole town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and introduced us to the laid Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Jun 20, 2012
  • Laos – Mekong BoatThe Mekong is one of the big rivers. It starts up in the high plateau of Tibet and passing through China, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam before reaching the sea via the Mekong Delta.

  • Thailand – Chiang MaiChiang Mai is a Thai city at heart. Despite plenty of tour operators and traditional massage shops, it has a distinctly Thai feel. With plenty of traditional northern Thai food, even the Bangkok residents come to up here to sample Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Jun 8, 2012
  • Thailand – SukhothaiWe headed further north for another historic site at Sukhothai. The guesthouse here had a great restaurant area with a pool table where we relaxed for the evening.

  • Thailand – Ayutthaya Famed as the ancient capital of Thailand, there is plenty of history on offer just a short distance north of Bangkok. Ayutthaya is a city, but felt quiet enough compared to bustling Bangkok. The centre of town is an island, Posted by dbgomes in There and Back... And There Again | Jun 3, 2012
  • Indonesia – Komodo Boat TripKomodos most famous resident, the Komodo Dragon has remained pretty much unchanged since the days that the dinosaurs were roaming around eating Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum’s ancestors.
