I take photos of everything as we wander around. More often than not I capture gems like this one! The lady behind has the right idea – her kid is on her shoulders. I’m not so sure about the lady with the dog though! Continue reading
By the time you read this Jono and I will have our fat little bums on Australian soil! We’re home for a quick one week visit to check on our darling Kate and visit for a certain someone’s big birthday! Here’s a pic of Kim the birthday girl in all her glory.
And it’s a celebration of a big, big birthday – of course she’s 21 again!

She’s helped me move house (more than once) and is even giving us somewhere to sleep on this fleeting visit!

There are hundreds of news reports all fascinated by just how badly he messed up her name. Fair enough.

What kind of travellers would we be if at least one of our favourite fotos wasn’t of SE Asian safety standards?
I can assure you we have dozens of hilarious examples of un-safe construction sites and will share them with you in due course!
For now, imagine that you had to work up there on that platform? Then imagine you had to do it with no safety harness? And perhaps in flip flops instead of steel-capped boots?
For many workers that is the reality here. We’ve spend loads of time watching them move around at height and marvelling at how they do it. We’ve seen men throwing bricks several stories up onto the roof using bending bamboo to Continue reading
