Summer Holiday ‘Out on a Boat’

It seemed like not much new was happening on our blog lately, but we have not been sitting still. Quite to the contrary: we were just in the offline world for a while. Yes, that still exists and it is great! We went on a Christmas and News Years Cruise through Asia.

Since the seasons ‘down under’ are reversed to Europe, the kids had their last school days and we are now in our summer holidays. Last year I had my eyes set on a last minute cruise through Asia, but we did not book it as the flights would have cost double the amount of the cruise. So we ended up taking a Pacific cruise that departed from Sydney.

This year we did the un-Australian thing and planned a couple months in advance. I managed to book relatively affordable flights to Singapore with low budget airlines.

We left just before Christmas and returned home today. What an experience it has been. Full of people, food, cultures, beaches and celebration. And, we left 2017 with a different ‘Bang’ than expected. These are the ports that we visited:

MalaysiaKuala Lumpur
ThailandKoh Samui
Thailand – Bangkok
Vietnam – Ho Chi Min City

Stay tuned for our adventurous on a German cruise ship!

Mother, wife, explorer and loving the outdoors. We recently moved to Australia, so lots to explore here. We are keeping a blog about our experiences of moving and living on a different continent as a family.
