Day 230 – The Voyage Home 2nd May 2012

2nd May 2012 – The Voyage Home The alarm sounds, its 5 am. No luxury of snoozing the alarm and snatching a few extra minutes in the warmth and comfort of our beds. This is too important… if we miss this plane and we are in serious trouble, up the creek without a leg to […]

Day 228-229 – Singapore 30th Apr-1st May 2012

30th April 2012 The beginnings of a new day crept in through the open window as we arose to catch our morning flight from Kuala Lumpur LCCT to Singapore. We finished up the last of the packing and headed down stairs to say our last farewells to Step Inn, and to Alan in particular who […]

Day 218-227 – Kuala Lumpur 20th-29th Apr 2012

20th April 2012 Bags packed, breakfast (if you can call it that) eaten, taxi here and off to the airport with plenty of time to spare. Organisation at its best? Maybe, but since we hadn’t been able to print the boarding passes we had to queue up to get those and check in the bags […]

Day 194-197 – Sukhothai 27th-30th Mar 2012

27th March 2012 Farewell Phitsanulok. Jumping in a tuk-tuk outside the station we were transported to the bus station for our connection to Sukhothai. It was another of the on-its-last-legs buses that seem to be a feature of South East Asia, but it was comfortable enough with plenty of fans and the doors left open. […]

Day 188-193 – Bangkok 21st-26th Mar 2012

21st March 2012 Fortunately most of the people in our dorm were off somewhere today and so when we all woke up around 6am to prepare for the off, no-one really minded. The Spanish guys, one of which had celebrated their birthday were dead to the world, and one had even struck lucky during the […]
