Ning & I set up this blog way before we left on our 9-month adventure with lofty plans to blog regularly as we make our way around the world. But for those of you who have travelled continuously for that length of time, living off a backpack, and staying in (often) basic & affordable lodging, you’ll know that is being way, waaay ambitious!
For one, there were weeks we spent in the wild with no electricity, no running water, no proper sanitation (yes, we had to pee & poop in the bush!), let alone phone reception or wifi. Our time in Madagascar, for one… Who could even THINK about blogging or updating Facebook then?

Spending 3 nights in the Tsiribihina River in Madagascar. Back to basics!

And then, there were days we were out in the Sahara Desert in Morocco, living in cloth tents and hiding from sudden sandstorms……. The thought of taking out my MacBook Air and sitting down to blog never even crossed my mind! I was just trying to use whatever energy I had to keep cool in the sweltering heat. Brain. Cannot. Function.
Fooling around on the sand dunes of Erg Chebbi in the Sahara Desert... It was sunset and cool so we had some energy to play!

The point is: We left Singapore in March, and yesterday we came home. And although our Adventures of 2 Girls (A2G) Facebook page is growing healthily — simply because it’s easier and faster to update status & upload captioned photos — I am ashamed to say that our blog is…… well….. er…. you know….. *bashful*
And so, I do feel like what we’re gonna embark on is pretty much like… well, Time Traveling. In penning our experiences down for a book to be published by Marshall Cavendish International, we are going to relive those amazing months traversing the continents and put them down in words. And believe you us, we have a trillion thrilling tales to share!
So don’t give up on us, but keep it right here. You are going to see this website come alive through the months till we finally deliver our “baby” to you… a labour of love birthed from 9 months of travel. 🙂

  1. Wow! Can’t wait to see the gazillion pics you took!! Yeah, you can actually have a house session where you take out those pics in a video montage and sit your frens and family down for 1 whole day(if not, we’ll continue after a night’s rest) to watch!!! Good luck with the book! Am sure it will be SUPER!
