Underwater World & Island hopping

We arrived in Langkawi on Monday afternoon, after checking into our hotel, which is located in the main town of Kuah, we had a chance to browse around some of the local shops. A lot of the shops were selling what you'd expect from a tropical island - shirts, towels, swimwear, but Langkawi is also [...]

Kuala Lumpur – Part 2

Last night we decided was a good night to see what Kuala Lumpur's night life was like, so we visited a restaurant that was part of the Pavilion mall, which is a mall of epic proportions. The beer was cheap and the food and service were excellent, in good spirits we decided to head to [...]

Sydney – All Blacks vs. Australia

Hey All! We had an awesome time in Sydney last weekend, we went to to see the All Blacks smash Australia, and we got what we came for! Woo hoo! It was the first All Blacks game I've seen live, and it was well worth it. It rained a small amount, but the atmosphere was [...]

Second to last day!

Wow! The time's flown by so quickly, it doesn't really feel like we've been here 9 days! Though I am looking forward to coming home to clean air, food, bedding, clothes, etc. But not so much the temperature (8°C in Wellington today I see.) We went to the gymnastics last night (apparatus finals for mens [...]

Forbidden City

Today we visited the Forbidden City, which is essentially a huge palace area (about 1km square.) That place is amazing! All of the buildings are all so beautifully detailed and the court yards amazingly grand, I've seen nothing like it before. I took many photos while I was there (around 100 or so,) which meant [...]

Beijing Olympics: Day 2

It's getting towards the end of our second day in Beijing today, but damn it feels like we've done a lot! This morning we woke up bright and early at 6:30am (10:30am NZ time,) ate our free hostel breakfast (which consisted of dry bread, scrambled egg type stuff and something that quite closely resembled bacon,) [...]

Last Days

So we're in our last days now, hanging out in San Francisco. We're both still pretty tired from our time in Las Vegas, we had quite a few late nights there. I'm not quite sure how much money I pushed into slot machines, but I'm definitely not going near one again for a long time. [...]

Last days in LA

Today's our last day in Hollywood before we head off to Las Vegas! Yeah baby!! I'm very much looking forward to Vegas, and I've only heard good things from the locals here. Yesterday was a total write-off for both me and Toni, due to the incredibly strong (and expensive, $10?!) drinks at the Black Light [...]

San Diego

So we've made it to the southern most city of California, San Diego!!! But I am getting a little bit ahead of myself here... We spent the last two days in Anaheim, home of the amazing Disney Land. I wasn't sure how much I was going to enjoy Disney Land, I thought it might be [...]

Last Day In Thailand

It's our last half day here, before we start our long journey home. We haven't really done a hell of a lot in the last couple of days, Toni has a stomach flu of some form which has made the last little while most unpleasant for her, but did give me time to read The [...]
