This is it!

Ko Lanta, Thailand

After 204 days, 10 Countries, 17 Flights, 72 hotels/hostels, 65 Buses, 44 ferries/boats, 13 rented moped, 2 rented campervans, 1 rented car, an unquantifiable number of taxi/moto/tuk tuk and approximately 75,000 Kms later, we are saying farewell to the blog. We came away as boyfriend and girlfriend, we return to the UK engaged to be married! We came away pale and (perhaps) slightly overweight, we return a little tanned and over 3 stone lighter between us.

We said a sad farewell to our Aus Screen suntan lotion. This suncream had become like a friend to us. We met in a supermarket in Byron Bay, Australia and since then he has never been far from us. Perhaps he was the most well travelled sun cream in history? We thought he was everlasting but he dispensed his last in Ao Nang, Thailand. We leave you with one of the last known shots of Aus Screen looking resplendent in blue and yellow!

For our final two weeks, we are just relaxing and avoiding any bus journeys! Currently we’re in Koh Lanta, it has been the perfect tonic to a hectic travelling trip – very quiet, few tourists and the beach pretty much to ourselves.

We volunteered to walk dogs at the local animal Sanctuary so took Punky and Crusty for an afternoon stroll.

We return back to Ao Nang for a few nights on Tuesday and hope to do some more snorkelling. Then head to Bangkok for the final few days before flying home.
Thank you to everyone for looking at the blog and a bigger thank you to those who have left comments. We have had over 2200 hits on the blog since it started but we think about 2199 hits are our parents!
We appreciate that some of you may be rather blue that the blog has come to a close. However, don’t worry we’ll be home soon and we can show you the 4000 pictures we’ve taken!!
Tim & Em have now left this blog.....

well- what can you say to that. Great way to end although in many ways its also a great way to begin a new chapter if you know what I mean.

Only 13 mopeds - hope they were not all pink and where is the motorbike,hovercraft, hot air balloon etc!

3 stone lighter - does that mean that Starbucks have lost their best customers. the Blog has been really good and you can see the effort that has gone into it. Really enjoyed it although a bit hard to concentrate on work when I am looking at some nice beach somewhere. Think its trying to tell me something.

really looking forward to seeing you both. Have stocked up on Marmite and laughing cow cheese.

take care and see you both soon


PS you might want to hang on the sun cream - still fairly warm over here although not sure about snorkeling at lee.

Brilliant! Thanks so much for taking the time to write the blog, it's been really great reading it and seeing the amazing photos! Can't wait to see the other 3,500!!I have itchy feet again now, those empty beaches are beckoning.
Really looking forward to seeing you both on Tuesday, enjoy your last couple of days. Will email later.
