We have decided to do something a bit different this year – we are going backpacking around south-east Asia! Well, when I say “backpacking” – yes, we will each be carrying travelpacks – but no, we won´t be staying in dormitories with 18-year-old drunken gap-year students – we will be known as “flashpackers“, the term used for the more discerning backpacker. HA!
We leave Spain on January 10th 2012, flying from Madrid to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia (via Jordan) and, over the following two months will be making our way into Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia, finally flying out of Bangkok on March 10th when we will be heading to Paris. It´s been 20 years since our last visit to Paris, so we will spend a few days re-acquainting ourselves before we head back home to Spain.
