Top Things To Do In Seattle

Check out our top things to do in Seattle

We loved the U.S. when we visited in 2012.  We explored 17 states and we definitely have a hankering to visit the other 33 when we go back next time.  I know Gert secretly looks at camper vans for next time!  Seattle is top of our list so we thought we’d share some cool things to do in Seattle with you!

Renowned for its music bars and historical surroundings, Seattle is one of the most visited cities in the United States. Washington State’s largest Continue reading

Favourite Fotos: You’re Gonna Fall Over! Don’t You Dare Think Of Suing!

Don't think of suing Kek Lok Si Temple!

It’s been a while since we’ve amused you with a Favourite Foto, so here’s a funny sign from the Kek Lok Si Temple in Penang.  Basically they are saying ‘we know you’re going to fall down but don’t even think of suing since we don’t got no insurance peeps’!

As someone with a safety background this sign always fascinates me.

I know it’s probably been messed up a little bit in translation and they probably don’t mean it is inevitable that you’ll fall over while you’re visiting!

But it astounds me that just popping Continue reading

There Are Big Differences Between Travelling And Living Local!

Big differences between travelling and living local can leave you deflated!

Many of you would know that we travelled in 2012 for the whole year and then we moved ourselves to South East Asia for all of 2014, mostly based in Penang, Malaysia and conveniently stationed near the night markets!

I have to confess that it never occurred to me that living abroad with a rental house would be any different from travelling around the world.  I was probably blinded by the prospect of street food on every corner and walking distance to get roti!

Living local in housing that is non-transient is a lot more like being at home than you would expect.  Who knew huh?  Actually it’s pretty bloody obvious if you actually stop to consider it!  But we didn’t.  Of course, ’cause that’s not how we roll!

We jump into stuff, like renting this house.  We fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants like me starting my new blog or offering my Continue reading

Georgetown Attractions: Fascinating Clan Jetties!

DSC01858We’ve been busy exploring Georgetown attractions lately.  Considering we’ve been in and out of Malaysia for quite a few months, we’ve been really slack about exploring Georgetown and all there is to see here.

When my mum was here recently we hired a car for the afternoon and set off to explore.  First stop the Clan Jetties.

The Clan Jetties are not far from the city centre of Georgetown.  We walk everywhere so I can reliably tell you that the walk is around 10 minutes or so from the Komtar bus stop.  No matter where you’ve come from you’ll probably get off the Rapid Penang bus at the Komtar.  There are other buses that go right past the jetties too but really it’s more fun to walk and explore the little streets!

You could easily get a cab for a small amount of cash or jump on to a trishaw which you’ll find in plenty of the back streets of Georgetown.  If you’re already wandering the backstreets you’re likely to come across other Georgetown attractions that take your fancy too.

The jetties are, obviously, on the Continue reading
