There’s no place like home!

3rd August 2010 | Closed

A very long overdue update but needless to say we are back in the UK after completing our round the world trip. There’s so much to tell you about but I’ll keep this posting short as I suspect we’ve lost most of our readership since we haven’t posted since the beginning of the year. During [...]

Happy New Year!

31st December 2009 | Closed

Just a really quick one this time as it’s nearly 6.30pm in Vietnam and we have some partying to do. Well, its more like have a couple of beers sitting on our balcony in Nha Trang and then have dinner in one of the hundreds of restaurants which are just a stone’s throw from our [...]

Good Morning Vietnam!!!!!!!!!!!!

18th December 2009 | Closed

OK, so the title of this one gives our location away. We are in Ho Chi Minh City in the south of Vietnam. We’ve been travelling for just over 2 weeks and I think we’re in the swing of things now. We arrived in Bangkok, Thailand, on 1st December to beautiful sunshine just as the [...]

Round the World in more than 80 days

20th November 2009 | Closed

I know we’re long overdue an update on our blog so assuming we still have some readers out there, then this is just a quick one to bring you upto speed on what’s been going on over the last few months. We spent our final couple of weeks at the farm in India at the [...]

Leaving on a jet plane, don’t know when we’ll be back in India again….

Sorry folks, it’s been waaaayyy too long since our last posting at the end of July.  We were quite busy when we were home in the UK in August; what with house-sitting for Satpal and Parm whilst their kitchen extension got built, visiting friends & family, eating and drinking all the lovely stuff we’d missed [...]

Yak Yak Yak Ladakh

Well it’s been a few days since we’ve left Leh and I’ve finally got round to sorting out some photos for this posting. We’re back in the Punjab – it’s much cooler than when we left it….around 38C (instead of 47C) but with the severe humidity it actually feels worse!!!  (Yeah I know – you [...]

This cannot be India!!!

5th July 2009 | 1 Comment

This is just a quick posting to let you all know we’re alive and well and that we haven’t falled off the world… We’ve been in Ladakh for just over a week and we love the place. The region (in the north of India) is nothing like the rest of India…it is relaxed, peaceful, clean [...]

It’s difficult to sleep…

23rd June 2009 | Closed

It’s difficult to sleep when you’re angry. The power keeps going.  Most nights we don’t have power.  On Sunday night the power came back but was not full power (!) – it was only 180 volts (instead of the 240 volts it is supposed to be)…hence it was insufficient to drive the air-conditioning unit in [...]

Phase One Almost Complete!

21st June 2009 | Closed

We’ve been at my parent’s farm for just over two months.  It’s been an “experience”!!  I would not be exaggerating if I said it feels like we’ve been here a year. I’ve had two main goals while I’ve been here and unfortunately I’ve failed terribly at one and haven’t got quite as far as I [...]

Hi folks, we’ve been to Goa and back since we last talked to you. There’s a whole stack of stuff to tell you about – so together with an assortment of photos and a summary of our Goa trip, the highlights in this edition include sweating it out in Chandigarh, learning to do (and being [...]
