Back On The Trail
Apologies for my absence from this blog over the last year, some of you will know that unfortunately I was ill pretty much most of last year, I still haven’t returned to full health, but I am slowly getting there. I do intend to go back at some point and create a couple of blogs with a few words and photos to fill in the gaps of some of the places I did manage to get to last year, but for now I am focussing on going forward and that starts with my upcoming trip.
My route takes me first to Turkey with a few days to explore Istanbul, somewhere I’ve wanted to go for a long time, then on to Dubai where we’ll be taking afternoon tea in the famous Skyview bar of Burj Al Arab. Next it’s on to Thailand where we’ll be hiring a car and self-driving predominantly around the North East Isaan area for just over a month, followed by a quick trip into Cambodia for a few days in Phnom Penh and a root around the temples in Siem Reap. Another few days will be spent in Dubai and Istanbul on the return journey making the trip 6 and a half weeks in total.
Really so excited to be getting going again, we leave for the airport this evening and fly tomorrow morning – here’s to many more happy travels.
