As our time as a full-time travelling family hits two years we thought it was a good time to review and reflect on Our Awesome World Adventure so far.
After spending one whole year as a full-time travelling family (wahoo!!) and having spent 359 days of this in Southeast Asia, we thought we would look back on the good and the bad.
Carrying on from our first six month review post, I thought a blog that includes our costs and budget to date would also be required.
Our stay in Chiang Mai saw us experiencing a range of activities and sights, from bathing with elephants, staying in a treehouse, standing on the highest peak in Thailand, learning Muay Thai and even having a Police Officer trying to extort money from us!! (More on this later)….
For us Surat Thani was a little stopover for a few days to help breakup what would have been an even longer day of travel than it already was. So here’s our travel day from Penang in Malaysia to Surat Thani, Thailand and a little of what we saw there.
After being in the concrete jungle of KL we all found being in Penang very refreshing to be surrounded by nature, whether it be the ocean in front of us or the forrest and hills behind us.
Well, we have now left Kuala Lumpur and are already busy exploring Penang; so we thought it was time to write a review of our time in Kuala Lumpur.
They say “money makes the world go around” for us it should be “money makes us go around the world”. Although, before we even confirmed if four years of family travel was possible we invested a lot of time into ensuring it was financially viable for us and not just a pipe dream. We were in the fortunate position to own a house in Auckland, which because of massive recent capital gains in the value of houses, we are able to fund our world adventure, hopefully without going completely broke
