We went out on this long planned tour with GoAquatic, a PADI dive-centre close to our hotel, and hence also to Jesselton point, the harbour.Our guide, Gary, was a brilliant companion in all aspects; catering to the different needs of our little group splendidly. Me and Johan needed a refreshment
Kota Kinabalu, Borneo. The beauty of discovering new places!First day we spent locating eateries, dive centre, harbour etc. Dinner at Sri Melaka, an allegedly great option for local food that certainly lived up to its reputation. The Assam, Laksa and Nasi lemak were the most outstanding.Next day,
29 hours travel here. Streetfood dinner. Love Bangkok. Celebrating 20 years in this city w my husband. Big brekkie, gym visit, pool hanging. Thai massage. Lunch @ hole in the wall. MBK. 10 course thai dinner. To bed at 11 pm - early morning to follow. 5:30 Rise and Shine! Borneo awaits! New
Backpacks are almost packed, work and school has been left behind. Tomorrow, we start our big trip east. A long drive to Arlanda awaits us, from there we fly with Emirates to Dubai, and transfer to our BKK flight. Wish us luck on the roads, folks. See you when we get there.
Though Bangkok is always unpredictable, this time is possibly the most chaotic I've experienced... We used our first morning here to hang at the 12th floor pool for a while (me and Elias after the gym). For lunch, we hauled a cab to dear old Banglamphu, Soi Krasi (off Rambuttri road) to visit a
The last few days on Koh Chang we spent in a blissful, relaxed mood. Running on the beach before or just after breakfast with Elias, some gym exercises and then pool-time. Lunch at scruffy SeaBar, which have surprisingly good thai food. Massages in the afternoon - and a quiet beer at the balcony at
That Thailand is full of surprises is nothing new. Not that you rarely get what you book, in terms of trips and excursions, either. Yesterdays snorkling trip was however one of the worst surprises I've had, and possibly the only time I've been put in real danger by someone else, out of my control

The trip down to Koh Chang from Bangkok confirmed one thing: we would never have made it in time for the last Ferry over at 7.30 PM on the 25th... Good thing we realized in time! We left Bangkok by car at 10 am, arrving to take the ferry 3 pm... The ride over was ok, though it had been raining and
On the last day in Pai, we realized our travelling plans down to Koh Chang wouldnt work out in reality.... Oups. Stationed by the pool, Johan made some changes in bookings, and voila - next stop Bangkok! It was a nice day, dwelling by the pool and chilling, totally deserved after jungle adventures
We´re heading as far away as we´ve ever been. Some new places to explore, some old favourites to visit. Either way, we´re travelling with an open mind and expect surprises and exciting meetings whereever we go. Eastbound - not down :)
Back to Asia after trips in the Middle East, Central America and USA. Big Five has gotten bigger; kids grow... Our fascination with travelling does not seem to diminish with time; quite the opposite. Monsoon period isn´t the greatest time to travel in South East Asia, but the only time we are able to travel those days. So we´ll do what we always do - set out on the road one more, confident that the road will lead us on, no matter what...
Open jaw ticket Singapore Kuala Lumpur Bangkok. Streetfood, adventure, backpacking with children, charging up in the big cities, winding down at the islands, chilling the sun,laughing in the rain.
3 weeks of south-east Asia is better than one week of south east Asia. Or Kirghistan.
Another backpacker-trip to Asia... A little longer once again - and so we´ll see were the road takes us. This time we´ve got 3 children to tag along; Elias, Mr T and Lily Wild. The principle remains, though; no more than one backsack each. Looking forward to all that delicious food awaitening me - and maybe one or two calm moments by the sea...?
A minimum of 4 dinners / day to compensate the restricted time-frame of 2 weeks travel... And of course, some serious sea dwelling; swimming, snorkling, lolling dizziliy around on the beach...
Backpacking Thailand w our 2 children. Going back to the westcoast, where we haven´t been since 2003. Finally got the "OK" from Doc to dive again, after ear-accident. So, that´s hopefully gonna happen. The Nannies are coming down halfway through the trip and will explore my other world for the first time.
Returning to my absolute Favourite City in the world - five days in an absolute crazy tempo...
thailand, ryggsäck, två barn en vagn denna ggn, BKK - Hua Hin? ev Samet eller kanske ngt helt annat
