We kept ourselves busy in Vang Vieng visiting caves, lagoons and even taking a spontaneous hot air balloon ride at sunrise.
We really enjoyed our time in the sleepy capital of Laos, exploring the weird and wonderful Buddha Park and a humbling experience at the COPE visitor centre.
We climbed the 272 colourful steps that lead up to the enormous Batu Caves and soaked up some history in the beautiful Islamic Arts Museum.
Travelling long term can have its up and downs like everything in life. We had a pretty rough time in Langkawi, but came out more excited about travel than ever.
A lack of sleep and internet access didn’t stop us from getting out and exploring the amazing cafes and street art dotted all over George Town. The heat and humidity did slow us down a bit though.
I was unfortunately confined to the bedroom for most of our time in Khao Lak. We still managed to explore the incredible Surin Islands, enjoy some mojitos and witness a beautiful sunset.
We had a slightly alternative Christmas hiking up a precarious rock, swimming in a fresh water lake and exploring caves in Khao Sok National Park.
We fell in love with Thailand all over again as we adjusted to the much slower pace of island life. Eventually venturing out for a spot of snorkelling, cave climbing and kayaking before trying our best to stay upright on a scooter.
After a second sleepless night we ventured out to explore the Gardens by the Bay and finished the trip off nicely with Singapore Slings at Raffles.
Having barely slept a wink, we kicked off our 48 hours in Singapore by visiting Kong Sen Road and The Botanical Gardens.
