Whoopa Gangnam Style!

Seoul With bellies full of Kobe beef and red vino, it was time to bid farewell to our Barnsley buddies and set off yet again as a twosome. It seemed a bit weird for a while not turning around to make sure we hadn’t lost the gang, what didn’t feel weird was the shear relief … Continue reading »

Konnichiwa Japan and arigato gozaimasu

Tokyo So, two of us arrived from Malaysia, the other two from Barnsley. United we all were, tired and weary in a strange land of short legs, black hair, slanted eyes, funny writing and a very weird mother tongue.

A swift stopover to see the Sultan – Brunei

Bandar Seri Begawan Having booked our shuttle bus to Brunei through the youth hostel the day before, we thought we were in for the usual terrifying and uncomfortable bone shaking 4 hour ride to our next destination.

Borneo to be wild

Diving feet first into Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur We arrived this time at the Kathmandu International airport, a whole world away from the domestic shed next door. Thinking it would be a low key affair flying out of Kathmandu, we couldn’t believe our eyes when we walked up to the big bird sat on the runway, it was massive and there … Continue reading »

Namaste Nepal – To the top of the world and back

Lumbini Departing India was not quite as comfortable as our Spice Jet arrival. It involved a fair few gut wrenching bus rides, a cycle rickshaw (each) across the border at Sunauli, a slightly adventurous jeep ‘ride’ (if you can call it a ride), before another very sweaty overly populated bus took us to our destination for … Continue reading »

Losing my religion – An end of an India

Amritsar It was inevitable that the world famous Delhi belly would come and get us, and that it certainly did. With Danny suffering badly and first hand experiences of his previous small accidents keeping her awake at night, ‘Claire Bear Gryll’s’ had no choice but to put into practice studied survival tactics. ‘Borrowing’ a towel … Continue reading »

Camel Toe, Tigers, Taj & Turbans

Jaisalmer Always a step ahead of the rip off merchants, our jeep was awaiting us 5am as promised outside the train station. Off we scuttled into the back of the jeep thankful for the additional leg room it provided comparable to a tuktuk. The sky was clear, the air had a slight chill, and so … Continue reading »
