The highlights of our trip

After 3 1/2 months away and 7 countries visited we are safely back in sunny London. We compressed our trip in this video. Very grateful to have such good fortune, health and weather along the way. Big thank you to all family and friends who followed us along the journey, those who hosted us (The Rutters, The Allans), friends that joined us and to those who led the way before us, inspired us to make this dream come true. This would not have been possible without the tips and tricks of Almost Fearless, Never Ending Voyage, Till The Money Runs Out, With 2 Kids In Tow, It’s Backpacking We Go.

Kuala Lumpur- The perfect stopover with kids

When we were choosing a stopover Kuala Lumpur was top of the list. Tickets only 40USD, Petronas towers, shopping, malay food and a chance to reunite with Mark’s uni friend after 16 years.

It was very clear that the main attraction were the markets and shopping malls. Anything that involved buying. One of the malls had a full theme park inside it with rollercoaster and all! All sorts of shops and food from all over the world I presume people will eat, drink or buy anything to avoid the heat 

Dylan tried to get us to buy him some angry birds but instead we went to the world’s largest free flight walk in aviary to see the real things. It was quite a hit except for when he was given the opportunity to have exotic birds perched all over him – he made us pay, queue and then ran off screaming leaving us covered in birds.


KL continues to develop and grow with a frenzy! Having left the concrete jungle behind we have reached the jungle in Cambodia.
