Class Y34D with Mr D

One of the best experiences we had during our 10 days back in the UK involved mingling with a much younger generation, it sounds cliché but to spend time with amazing examples of bright kids in the UK was such a heart warming experience. The “youth of today”, an expression that is usually followed up by some derogatory comment. As you’ll see here, there are some great inquisitive minds working through the UK school system and we were privileged to meet quite a few.

Towards the tail end of June when we would have originally been heading home for good, we were in fact gearing up for the next leg of our adventure in South America. We planned a stop in the UK for 10 days to attend the wedding of some friends and catch up with loved ones, a little holiday at home before setting off again.

Longtails docked on the beach – Andaman Sea

We first visited Thailand 5 years ago, it sounds like a short time but it feels a lot longer now that we’ve seen the rapidly developing jewel of Asia again.

We had heard from several reliable sources that the street food in this area would ensure that we left Asia in style!

The impressive sight of Angkor Wat

The impressive sight of Angkor Wat

Little known fact about me, my university degree was in Archaeology. I spent three years of my life learning about all things ancient and aspiring to become a combination of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft. Obviously since I ended up working in marketing this didn’t quite work out but I still have a love for all things ancient and find it incredibly fascinating to visit remains of past civilisations. Angkor Archaeological Park in Cambodia is one of those places that has astounded me from afar and I couldn’t wait to explore it.
