Bootsie and Lechte's Bogus Adventure

Hi everyone, this is where you can keep track of our travels and have a look at our latest photos. We've updated it with some of our older ones from last year which you can check out in the 'more' section.

Vietnam May 09

The 3 of us girls decided it was time to sit back, relax and enjoy the humidity and slow paced lifestyle of Hoi An - Vietnam. Having said that, the shopping was anything but relaxing. Disey and Nicole, purely unstoppable in search of the best made and styled outfits. All in all it was a great break away.

 

Kangaroo Island SA

Feeling very bunny like, we hopped over to Kangaroo Island for some Easter fun. Narrowly missing a big kangaroo on the road, our days were fun filled and adventure packed.

 

Our B & W Wedding Photos

These are the shots the old fashioned way.

 

Vietnam - Pt 2.

We continued our journey down the coast on a sleeper train to Hue and then on to the beautiful Hoi An. We liked it here so much we stayed a bit too long - the fact that there were tailors on every street and renee was also on these streets played a role in this. We actually ended up getting the groomsmans suits for the wedding made here. We ended up flying straight to Ho Chi Minh - ancient land of many motorbike. We dodged them well enough to explore it's interesting war museums and pretty buildings.

 

Vietnam - Hanoi & Halong Bay

Hanoi, although still pretty hectic, had a nice feel about it and a beautiful area around it's lake. After a couple days exploring, we took off on a boat through the amazing limestone carsts of Halong Bay for a couple of days.

 

Thailand

We spent a fantastic few days on Railay Beach, where Cousin Jamie married Manon. A great location and a great night was had by all. The rest of the time was spent relaxing by the pool and the beach with Aunts Rosa and Hellsa.

 

Sri Lanka

A week on the beach soaking up the sun, eating seafood, and swimming in the clear blue water of Umwatuna Beach was just what we needed. So thats what we did in Sri Lanka, and not much else.

 

Annapurna Circuit trek Pt 2

The second week of the trek had us ascending the high pass at Thorung La (5416m). We also had a lot more snow to contend with, freezing temps and headaches at the high altitude and and more amazing scenery.

 

Annapurna Circuit Trek Pt 1

For the last 15 days we've been trekking around the Annapurna Mountain range in the Nepalese Himalaya. The first week saw us head towards the north, travelling through rice terraces, over white water suspension bridges, and gaping at the amazing scenery and towering peaks.

 

Kathmandu & Mt Everest

We spent a few days in Kathmandu, exploring the temples of durbar square and stocking up on winter warmies for our trek. We also took the chance to go on a scenic mountain flight over Mt Everest. Here's the photos.

 

India - Part 2

Our India travels continue through Pushkar, Udaipur which were a a bit more laid back than our first experiences of india in Delhi and Jaipur. Very scenic too.

 

India - pt 1

Our adventures through chaotic India. This section covers our arrival into Delhi - notable for crooked airport taxi driver, Agra - notable for taj mahal, and Jaipur - notable for crazy traffic, indian weddings and renees birthday!.

 

Egypt 2

The Nile.

Hi Backseat & Staller,

As I sit in the stinky internet cafe writing this I feel really jealous of all your other travels since last seeing you in Jan! I shouldn't since we are living the dream still...speaking of which we are off to the land of the cuckoo clocks next friday for 4 days! Woo hoo! You guys actually look quite healthy..must be the sun! Yor photos are great and looks like you've had a ball! Looking forward to seeing you on the big day...just 28 days and about 26 hours of flying to go until we arrive back in Adeladie!! xx

Hey Guys,
Photo's look fantatsic!! Almost 'photo of the week' worthy. If that guy is supposed to be guarding that giant sliver pot, he dosen't look that interested!! Reckon I could take him but that flimsy red string security system could be a hassle. I'd have to step over it or something. In regard to the secong set of photos, I didn't realise Bollywood had their own version of Shaft.....
