And we’re off! Double meaning there actually: one, the blog is live (as you know, you AMAZING reader); two, we (the Screndels) are on our month-long holiday in south-east Asia.
It all begins in Bangkok, a city primarily popularised by the seedy underworld depicted in various movies, including the Hangover series. Is it anything like the movies? A little, but there’s much more than meets the eye.
While we are only in Bangkok for a two-day stopover before flying to Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon) tomorrow, we’ve managed to see quite a bit and meet a few cool people.
Bangkok really is a good introduction to south-east Asia (especially for a long-haul travel rookie like me) and there’s plenty to do. So we thought, to ease you in to our travels, we’ll update you with some highlights from days one and two.
Keep following the blog for more regular updates – and don’t forget you can keep up to date with EVERYTHING we do on Facebook (like us here!), Twitter (follow us here!), and Instagram (follow us again!).
That’s a lot of following. Don’t worry. We won’t call the police.
