LIFES ONE LONG HOLIDAY - 2005 travel blog


The Dodds´s travel blog
A backpacker's life is consumed by Last Name Unknowns from Everywhere. You are known only by your first name and where you're from. Always living on a shoestring, always looking for adventure, always on the go, there is rarely a dull moment in a backpacker's life. It's brilliant for as long as you can handle it - or until the money runs out.

Everyday is a safari for the eyes and a party for the stomach. So far I have personally gone on the quest for the perfect pad thai ad found it, (and now know how to cook it!), fallen in love with an iced coffee (see Hoi An) and sampled some of the best food I've ever had. We have grown accustomed to squatting over toilets, taking cold showers and sleeping in hot rooms with slow fans. But we have loved every minute and already have so many memories.

This website will be our journey through 5 continents in 7 months. I have written most of the text, while Lawrence has been busy uploading photos and detailing the itinerary. It has been a joint effort and a great way to pass free time and keep us out of trouble.

We hope you enjoy our stories and pictures.

Lawrence and Aimee
