Around the World Trip - Greek & Belgian Adventures

The title tells it all. A Greek and a Belgian join forces to explore the other side of the planet! Many people we know have attempted similar things, so that is what "inspired" us. People like Jamie, Linus and Ed (Hi there!) are to blame for it mum! The plan is to travel east-wards, leaving London on the 18-01-06 and returning sometime in August/September 2006 visiting: Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Australia (Sydney/Melbourne area), N.Zealand, Fiji
