By this point, we had been travelling for over fifty days. I quit my job almost a month before that. Time had become somewhat meandering for me and only my smart watch knew what day it was. Regardless, this was a chill out day. We had many of them planned throughout the trip, but this … Continue reading Thailand – Country No.4 – Chang Mai Part 2
The next day we used klook to see what's on offer and discover a Studio Ghibli exhibition. We have enjoyed the stunning animations the Japanese animation house has produced for thirty years, but it's something that is just being introduced in China. My Neighbour Totoro was released there just last year and was well received. … Continue reading Hong Kong – Country No.3 – Part 2

The trip to the hostel involved the metro and lots of stairs but we coped with our heavy bags, as we are yet to lose our Mongolian warm layers and coats. Chengdu is a big city.

First of … Continue reading Mongolia – Country No1
The Adrenaline Bundle - Part 2 We rose super early today and headed over to the Cloud Forest for a guided tour.

It was most interesting to discover … Continue reading Costa Rican Adventure – Day 5
