Thanks for stopping by our blog.
We are Annie and Ross, a couple of fifty-something downsizing Australians. We’ve done the whole rat-race thing for the time being, the kids, Sebastian, Oliver and Hamish, have grown up to be fine young independent men and have their own lives now, so we’re off to South-East Asia for a break. Hoping to live the dream!!!
Food, culture, heat, adventure, swimming, travel. It’s all in front of us now.
After 18 years in Sydney we’ve decided to start our break with a couple of weeks chilling out in Bangkok before heading to the delightful coastal city of George Town, Penang, listed in 2008 as a Unesco world heritage site and located in the Malacca Straits off the coast of Malaysia.
Famous for hawker stalls and street food, we will be in foodie heaven.
We first visited Penang in 2007 as part of a whirl-wind flit around Malaysia and soon came to the conclusion that it would make an ideal base to explore all that South-East Asia has to offer.
Close to Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos with it’s own international airport it offers everything we are looking for, expat friendly, fantastic locations and the great food is another bonus.
We hope you drop by often and visit our blog to see what we’ve been up to.
