It’s been a long, wild while since our last blog post, since we flew away from New Zealand and onto the large mass of land they call Australia.
Three months to be exact, since we’ve put finger to key and described our most latest adventures.
These past few months have been a trip, sitting still in Sydney before viciously carving our way through Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Hong Kong.
Our movements were rapid, and our wifi often spotty, so we’ll try to recap our latest wanderings in the form of brief highlights.
Here are 35 reasons why we haven’t updated our blog for three months… in chronological order, of course.
