Fourth Day in Sydney can mean only one thing: Surf and Sand!
It’s not like we were avoiding the Opera House. It’s just that they are not really going anywhere and can probably be viewed in most any condition. Where as the mountains and our planned trip on our last day to Bondi Beach are best done on nice days. Our plan was to do a self … More We Went Down Under! Third day in Sydney aka when we finally saw The Opera House
It almost seems like we are avoiding the big highlights of Sydney doesn’t it? I promise that eventually we did see all those great typical highlights of Sydney. The Blue Mountains, where we headed on our second day, is also on the tourist path. Usually this kind of thing bothers me, but things become popular … More We Went Down Under!

That is actually a complete lie, because the reef is made up of thousands of different reefs. We went with a company that took us to three … More We Went Down Under! Great Barrier Reef edition
Fair warning, I am going to drag out our Australia trip a bit in order to get more content for this blog. It is hard to condense an entire journey into one blog post. I did this for Myanmar and it was tough. I wrote a few blog posts for Taiwan and it was much … More We went down under! Koalas edition!
Selamat Tahun Baru Cina! Well, a day late but still! The past few days were Chinese New Year. Their calendar goes by the moon so obviously it is a bit different than a western calendar.

So a note first: we were only in Bangkok for one day. So the amount of food we ate is not that great, hence these being a kind of short post. Thai food is one of my favorite cuisines and it did not disappoint. So a second note: I think living in Malaysia has made … More One Night in Bangkok-Part : How To Lose Weight In Malaysia Part 28
