Firstly, we both like to thank you for taking the time to click on the link and welcome to Karl and Paula’s South East Asian Travel Blog. We know the blog title is a bit naff, but it will most likely change as we visit more places, countries or perhaps continents. But for now, welcome to our travel blog and we both hope these readings will find you well, perhaps envious, but hopefully inspired to check out this ridiculously manic but wonderful part of the world we have just landed in.
Over the past 11 months it is safe to say we have both been avoiding the radar when it comes to staying in touch with friends from Scotland and beyond. For anyone who doesn’t know, we have been living/’researching’/working in Brisbane, Australia. The year went far too quick and we both feel we have been very sloppy in keeping friends informed of our Australian adventures. We hope this 6 week travel blog will compensate for our sloppyness!!! The way the blog is going to work is we will write individual posts depending on where and what we are doing and who has the energy to write. No doubt this will encourage mixed perspectives where you are likely to get (un)interesting hard hitting facts from Karl and emotional/sensitive posts from Paula. That is the plan anyway, and we will see how things fair over the forthcoming weeks.
As you will discover, we both had an amazing time in Australia, were very sad to leave and we’re both sure this will become apparent in our posts. To fill everyone in, we spent our last two weeks in Northern Queensland sailing the Whitsunday Islands, white water rafting along the grade four Tully River, scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef, trekking (but mostly sunbathing) in Captain Cook’s Cape Tribulation and partying in Cairns. It’s been a tough couple of weeks but someone has to do it!
Once again welcome to our travel blog and we look forward to seeing/speaking with everyone very soon.
Karl & Paula. X
