Who Are We & What Are We Up To?

Henry and Jen of minisuitcase.co.uk in India 2012

Yup, it’s us!

Hello! This is a travel blog detailing our  journey around Asia.

It started out as a 10 month trip and we’re still on the road; check the sidebar  ⇰ for how long its been since we left the UK.

In November 2011 we left our home, families, friends and cats and flew to India. We wanted an adventure and we got it! We now have spent time in India, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos.

To see exactly where we’ve been have a look in the drop down menu at the top of the page or in the sidebar for each of the countries we’ve visited and click for more specific destinations.

We are travelling ‘hand luggage only’ to see if it can be done (it can) and because it just makes sense.   (Check out our packing list.)

You will find stories here about the people we meet, the places we explore and plenty of photographs. To see a selection of our favourite photos from each country we’ve visited so far, see our gallery page.

The blog is not always up to date but this is still a current journey and I do get around to updating it eventually!  To keep up with what we’re up to on a more regular basis you could follow me on Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr or Facebook

All questions and comments are more than welcome. Can we answer your questions about somewhere we’ve been? Have you noticed something that does not work on the website? Please drop me a line!

Thanks for visiting and happy travels,

Jen

    Hi there, came across your blog – love the photos, have made me very jealous! This wasn’t for posting but couldn’t find an email – but just wondered if you’d be interested in sharing any of your photos (or experiences) on our adventure sport and travel site http://www.outdoorbuzz.net?
    We’ve been up about six months growing bigger by the day and looking at expanding our contributors. This month we’re giving £100 to the contributor’s post that gets the most views, so although you’ve missed this month’s incentive, we’ll be doing similar things.
    Let me know if that’s of any interest and I can tell you more!
    Thanks for your time and keep enjoying the travelling.
