If you recall, we had to book an onward ticket out of Thailand when we were at the airport in Mauritius. So, we took the bus which we booked from Bangkok to Siem Reap, Cambodia. The bus went from Bangkok to the border where the bus company took charge of
From Mauritius we flew to Bangkok. Actually, we flew from Mauritius to Reunion to Bangkok including a six hour layover in Reunion. Upon arrival at the airport in Mauritius we hit a snag. This is the first time this has happened to us on this trip… and in fact ever.
After a fantastic 24 days in Madagascar, we flew back to Mauritius for a quick five day layover on our way to Southeast Asia. This won’t be a long post because frankly we needed to rest, so we did not do anything worthy of great detail. Several photos will help
I suppose for starters I should say that visiting Madagascar is not for everyone. First of all, we could not comment on 4 or 5 star travel in Madagascar. If that is your travel style, then you might want to look for other blogs that focus more on that. However,
We just finished up our 24 day adventure in Madagascar. We had planned so much of our travel for the past few months around getting here. Madagascar has been on our travel bucket list for a long time and we were sad to leave. There is more to see in

This will be a very short post. We are in Genoa, Italy (pronounced Gen-o-va in Italy). Getting here was a bit of an issue. We had a bus ticket from Munich. On the way to the bus station, the underground broke down and we were stuck for about 20 minutes.
It has been a while since we stayed in a hostel. For two of us we have found that AirBnBs are cheaper than hostels. It also gives us our own space including a kitchen we can cook in. The trade off is that we are often outside of the best
After Belgrade, we took a bus to Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. This was stop two in the Balkans and in the former Yugoslavia. It was also the one we were most excited about. Of our stops on this trip, Sarajevo is perhaps the most affected by war ‘in our lifetimes.’
We left Budapest on September 9th by train headed to Serbia. We planned a first stop in Subotica, Serbia which is just across the border from Hungary. Literally, it is right across the border. The train stops inside the Hungarian border for border control. Several border control agents board the
