The Last 2 years... Part 1

So, it's been a while... but I am guessing that most people that are likely to read this know that I left Alice Springs at the end of 2008, on a road trip with my pal Sue, who came out from the UK to share an adventure southwards, down the Stuart Highway to Adelaide and then along the coast to Melbourne.

At this point I still thought I was going to live in Tasmania, thought when I look back now I don't think that was ever the case. I think it was just a lie I was telling myself, as if I had accepted the fact that I was moving to the UK and leaving Australia I don't think I would have ever got on the plane. 

I did get on the plane though and my first stop was Ho Chi Minh city to catch up with my friend Ehpriya. Then on to Cambodia where I did the predictable temple tours. I LOVED Cambodia. It became my new favourite country, the people are so lovely and the food was delicious. The temples were quite impressive too!

I then went to Thailand for 10 days of fasting and detoxing at Samui Detox. A brilliant place that I would thoroughly recommend to anyone interested in improving their own health. I was so impressed I actually went back again this year!
From there I travelled to the UK - arriving mid February to a country covered in snow. Quite a shock to the system, particularly as I had anticipated being greeted by my mum and some warm clothes. The snow meant they were unable to collect me from the airport so instead I made my way by train, across central London wearing as many of my hot country clothes as was possible, all on top of each other! I must have looked a sight - fortunately it was 2 am on a Friday and no one that I encountered was sober enough to notice.
