What’s the best way to counter-balance a very short engagement? A very long honeymoon we thought! So that’s what we did.
I’m Stephanie, a primary school teacher, keen photographer and musician from Derbyshire. The handsome fellow in the picture below is my husband, Dean, a very smart engineer. We both suffer from severe cases of wanderlust!
On the 26th September 2013 we flew to South-East Asia and spent about 5 months visiting Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia (including Borneo), Singapore and The Philippines. Then we stayed for 10 days in Japan on our way to Central America. We landed in Los Angeles and made our way to Mexico before winding our way down through Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. After a short flight, we landed in Ecuador where we briefly revisited Peru on our way to Chile, then worked our way back North through Argentina to Brazil. We returned to England at the end of July 2014, pleased to see our families and friends but definitely not cured of our wanderlust! Now, back to our jobs, we are having to content ourselves with day dream travels!
The idea of this blog is a light-weight, less labour-intensive alternative to the journals I used to write/draw during trips. On the road I used my Galaxy Note to update details of our travels regularly. Now that we’re back, I’ll of course blog about future trips but I’m also considering sharing some of our earlier travels if I ever get round to it!
