Sweden - England

It's common knowledge that England hasn't beaten Sweden in 11 matches since 1968, so it was with great confidence Swedes and wannabees met up at Andrew's place.

Sweden played well and the Poms should be happy they drew...again

It was really great to meet with the Munich crew again...

4th time in Singapore...

Last stop before going West...!

Alex has been our base in South East Asia. We can't thank you enough for putting up with our house-invading and for being our partner in crime in Singapore.
Thanks buddy and hope to see you soon...

Petronas Twin Towers - 452m - Kuala Lumpur

Used to be the world's tallest building until the Chinese built Tapei 101 (502m).

In order to get up in the tower you had to queue up at 07:30 to get a ticket that would allow you to go up later that day. We didn't have the time and it was too early so we settled for some photos...

On The Mekong River


Tribute to Beer Lao - An excellent pale lager, by far the best beer we’ve tasted in Asia. Made out of hops and yeast from Germany, malt from Belgium and France and rice grown in Laos. Carlsberg bought the brewery a few years ago, and sent their experts to Lao thinking they could improve the process…but they couldn't.


The Mekong is one of the world's major rivers. From Tibet it runs through China, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. As an result it is anything but clean...
In the background you can see a cave we visited - filled with thousands of Buddha statues.



Watching Sweden play Trinidad-Tobago with the guys from the hotel.
0-0. What a crap game…

Tubing

Vang Vien is famous for tubing. Tubing is simply floating down a river in a big rubber doughnut, stopping for drinks, swimming and playing with ropes and swings...great fun!!!
