Yep. We are home! Although you probably all know this by now! I still can’t quite believe our year of adventure is over. But all good things must come to an end 🔚
Our final week in Thailand consisted of a whole load of relaxation, snorkelling, more relaxation, too many mojitos, and oh yeah! an engagement 💍
As soon as we arrived in Bangkok we got the sleeper train to Koh Tao – we didn’t want to waste a minute of island time! We ditched our big backpacks in a hostel so we didn’t have much to carry. We chilled with a Singha before heading to the train station. The train turned out to be a pretty horrible experience 🚂👎 we seemed to have got stuck in the noisiest carriage EVER! It was impossible to get a decent sleep. But knowing Koh Tao was just a few hours away made it a little more bearable.
I know I said that my last post would be my final one for 2015 but it wouldn’t be the end of the year if I didn’t do a bit of reminiscing. So I thought I’d do a little round up of the main highlights since we started this journey in April.

The next day we went to Kragga Kamma Game Park to see some of the wildlife SA is famous for. We spotted two of the Big 5 – rhinos & buffalo! We even saw a little baby rhino which was SO cute. Continue reading →
Howzit from South Africa 👋 sorry for the long wait for this post – South African WiFi is possibly the worst we’ve experienced in 9months on the road (yep, even Laos has better WiFi than here!)
After leaving New Zealand we spent a couple of days recuperating in very hot & humid Bangkok! We didn’t do too much there other than chilling by the pool; eating lots; and almost getting our backs broken having a Thai massage (it was awesome!) It was so weird being back in Asia after 3 months away. I was back to being the whitest girl in town!
