...two travellers in search of the world's wildlife

You've stumbled on the blog of Matthew and Maureen, who travelled around the world for a year between July 2010 and July 2011.

We had a year of wonder, wildlife and a modest amount of adventure! Now we're back but we're still travellers at heart and will record all our journeys here.

The end of the trip

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

13 December Well that was unnecessarily stressful. On our way from Da Nang to Bangkok a text message popped up from Air Astana, who are flying us from Bangkok back to London via a stop in Astana. Change of schedule to our first flight: it’s going to Astana 4 hours later. Which means we’ll miss » » »

Wanna go home!

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

12 December 2018 I’ve had enough torrential rain. Enough walking on roads and dodging traffic. More than enough motorbikes. I’ve had enough difficult conversations. Enough ordering in restaurants by pointing, gesticulating and then hoping that what comes is what we wanted. Enough haggling or just resigning yourself to paying way over the odds. Enough uncertainty » » »

Still wet in Hoi An

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

11 December 2018 We’ve had to give up our search for the last langur in our set of four. Should have been the easiest, but apparently it still hasn’t stopped raining in Da Nang and now landslides have blocked the road onto the Son Tra peninsula. So, no langur. We actually got some blue sky » » »

Wet Hoi An

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

10 December 2018 It stopped raining at 8:45 this morning. Then as we left Da Nang at 9:00 it started again and it hasn’t stopped since, just varied between gentle and torrential. The smart attire in Hoi An is flip-flop and shorts. In places the streets are ankle-deep in water, so any shoes are just » » »

Rain stopped play

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

9 December 2018 We’ve been so lucky with the weather this trip. In the Philippines we could have arrived before or during the typhoon, but we arrived just after and so our plans were barely dented. Apart from that it was sun, sun, sun. In Phong Nha we were told that the caves are often » » »

Pastel city of the dead

Monday, December 10th, 2018

8 December 2018 There is a village on the coast south-east of Hue called An Bang. It’s just another Vietnamese village, except for some reason an exceptional number of inhabitants moved to the U.S. after the war and began sending back money. The families used this money for building themselves splendid villa houses, so that » » »

Tasty day

Monday, December 10th, 2018

7 December 2018 Today we genuinely took it easy. For breakfast we spurned our hotel and walked out to a street vendor for banh mi stuffed with pork and pate and egg and veggies, and her neighbouring vendor for iced Vietnamese coffee. The hotel staff were a little put out (and perhaps confused) that we » » »

Vietnam’s last imperial city

Monday, December 10th, 2018

6 December 2018 The Vietnamese football team just beat the Philippines, causing the bar where we were eating to erupt with cheers, and then the streets of Hue to be throng with vuvuzela-tooting fans hurtling around on motorbikes with the Vietnamese flag held like a banner by their pillion passengers. Apparently this victory was quite » » »
