After seeing many temples in Bagan, we rode a very slow train to Mandalay – the train took eight hours to travel only 200 kilometres (125 miles) across flat land!  The train stopped in many stations where people sold food and drink through the windows of the train. I even bought something to eat! Mandalay […]

Myanmar is a country that used to be called Burma.  We had to get a visa before we arrived, so we did this in Thailand.  A visa is a pass that allows a frog or person to travel to a country.  It was the first time I had to visit an embassy to apply for […]

I hopped onto a plane to travel to an island in-between Australia and New Zealand.  It is called Norfolk Island, and Shane told me that it is an external territory of Australia.  They use Australian money and the TV is also from Australia, but I still needed to carry my passport to visit from Australia!

After 10 weeks of traveling in the Middle East and East Africa, we arrived in Bangkok.  Shane and I were tired after so much travel, so we relaxed and only saw one place in Bangkok called the Grand Palace. The Grand Palace has very important buildings and they were pretty – there were many statues […]

We spent about one week in Saigon, or Ho Chi Minh City, in the south of Vietnam. There are two names for the city because the country is still, in the peoples minds, seperated north and south. The north of Vietnam (the side that won the war and are in power) call the city Ho […]
