Back home – but the journey goes on!

We`re back home again! After an 11 hours flight from Bangkok our plane arrived at Frankfurt Airport at about 7 p. m. today – and it`s been exactly 80 days since we left on 10 September, time shift considered! ;-)

Around the world...of beers! - Crown caps from every destination on our trip (© 2010 Bernd Neeser)So how does it feel to be back home in good old (and good COLD) Germany? Are we sad that it`s over, crying tears that we have to get back to normal life which will never ever be as good as the time we had on our trip? As if!

We made a lot of dreams come true on our trip: scuba diving with bull sharks, staying on a desert South Sea island, cattle mustering on horseback, shooting in USA, seeing Hollywood and the Universal Studios, a walk through the jungle, … awesome experiences we will never forget just like the great people we met (ok, I won`t try to list all of them here because I`d quite sure forget to mention some names!! ;-) ).

But life is not about sticking to your past it`s about looking forward to what comes next. Inspired by the countless new things we saw on our trip we came up with so many ideas and plans for the future. We just can`t wait to put them into action now! I`m also sure it won`t take long until we meet some of the guys from our trip again… 8-)

I was asked several times if 80 days are enough time to see the world. Looking back I can say that it was the perfect time for us to see and do what we wanted. If you expect to see EVERYTHING on a round-the-world trip you`ll probably be disappointed because that will never happen even if you`re travelling for years. Pick out a few important cities, islands, beaches to visit or things to do in every country, take your time to do it and you`ll be satisfied. Remember, you can always come back to spend more time in specific countries. For example, we could imagine to come back to New Zealand to spend a little more time there and visit the south island. Or see the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, or more states of the USA, etc. But we don`t feel like we missed something on this trip.

The journey continues!

When I launched roundtheworldin80days.net in summer 2010 the website was planned to get “frozen” after the end of the trip. But more than 1.600 visitors and over 7.000 clicks within 80 days speak another language. They seem to say: “Hey, it wasn`t that boring, we wanna see more!”.

So my current plans for the future of this website are as follows:

  • Another website of mine – the Diver`s Blog – is going to die, existing content will be moved to roundtheworldin80days.net
  • I`m going to add further trips e. g. the Berlin trip Isabell & I did in spring 2010
  • Future trips will be blogged on roundtheworldin80days.net including stories, travel tips, pictures and itineraries

What do you think – good idea or just a boring refill? What is it that made you visit our website in the past? Have you had fun to read our stories? To look at the pictures? Or did you find us via Google searching for travel information? Write us a comment with your opinion we`re looking forward to reading your feedback!

More temples!

I know we’ve already filled this blog with a lot of temple pictures but you got to see those: The temples in Thailand are totaly different than the ones in Bali (and compared to German churches they seem to be out of this world). If I just had one word to describe them, I’d say: Amazing! They are bursting with gold and silver roof top mosaics, shiny pads of coloured glas and everthing is just “bling-bling”. Not to forget the numerous statues of Buddha showing him in all his characteristics!

The biggest Buddha collection is displayed in  Wat Pho, the oldest and largest temple in Bangkok, with it’s really big attraction: A stunning reclining Buddha, 46 m long and 15 m high (the one that’s been sung about in the song “One night in Bangkok”).

One of the other temples we visited is Wat Saket Ratcha Wora Maha Wihan – also known as the Golden Mount. It’s an artifical hill with a large golden bell-shaped tower on top. A lot of  Buddhist people come here to pray and donate money – lots of money…

Okay guys, enjoy the pictures! It`s our last blog entry from hot and busy Bangkok. Tomorrow we’ll be on our way back to Germany…

Poor Bernd…

One of the worst things that can happen to you while you are travelling  is getting sick and having to go to hospital…

Unfortunately, that’s exactly what we did on sunday morning, 1.00 am. For two days Bernd was suffering increasing pain in his ear, at last so bad that he could not sleep at night. In addition his ability to hear decreased. :-(

In Bumrungrad International Hospital the doctor diagnozed swollen parts in the external ear, also affecting the eardrum. Bernd was treated with antibiotics and pain killers. We assume that the infection came from a bacteria in the water of the swimming pool from our hotel.

He is feeling a lot better now but he still has to take antibiotics for the next days…( so no more Singha beer for him – poor Bernd!) ;-)

Muay Thai

Whenever throughout our journey we said we are from Germany the immediate response was that we must like soccer. Well, that’s only partly true but we can’t deny that soccer is the favourite sport of most Germans, whether they play it themselves or watch it with beer and chips.
In Thailand they also have a national sport which may not be performed from as many people as soccer but watched by far more, as it is the sport called Muay Thai aka. Thai Boxing. For outsiders it looks like a mixture of western boxing and martial arts whereas it is an independent sport. The fight takes places in a ring and last 5 rounds of 3 minutes each.

Now guess who really wanted to see a Muay Thai fight and guess who was kind enough to come along?! :-)

But since it was recommended by our LP we jumped into a Tuk-Tuk on thursday evening and drove to the Rajadamnern Stadion, the oldest Muay Thai Stadion in Bangkok, where we had dinner with the locals and then bought two tickets for 1000 Bht each ( which are 25 €). There we were sitting in 3rd category with a great view and lots of  Thais next to us. It was kind of fun as people would get more and more excited until at some point they started to complain that we were sitting amongst them – so we switched to the other side of the arena where there was nearly noone – except other foreigners! (We found out afterwards that we were sitting in the middle of all the gamblers and therefore heavily disturbed their “business” – ooops ;-) ) As we were now sitting on the empty side of the stadion we weren’t part of the cheering crowd anymore but we could see the details of the Muay Thai: the entry of the fighters, their warmup, their traditional prayings and the last words of the trainer before the fight starts. During the fight the atmosphere was tense, rising with every round until the gamblers would know if they lost or won the money. By the way it’s very interessting to see that it’s a matter of skills, quickness and persitence to succeed and not so much the bare muscels a fighter has!

For all of you who ever come to Thailand, and especially Bangkok, make your way up to Rajadamnern Stadion (it’s maybe a 15 minute walk from Khao San Road) and watch a fight. Not only boys will enjoy but also (or especially?!) girls will, too! ;-)

Hello from Bangkok!

Dear readers, the end of the journey is getting closer and closer… a few days ago we arrived at our last destination: Bangkok!

At the airport we already realized that the city (and probably the rest of the country as well)  is different from the Balinese Asia we`ve seen before. It`s much more modern and very busy, you don`t have that feeling to be miles away from civilization. On the other hand you still have many traditional elements like the Tuk-Tuks, the cookshops, the colorful temples and all kind of markets with everything you can imagine. When we walked down the Khaosan Road the first evening I felt like on ecstasy because there were so many things to see!

Bangkok is also cheap, even cheaper than Kuta. We usually have lunch or dinner for 30 Baht (approx. 1 US Dollar) a foot massage is 100 Baht and for 150 Baht more you get a massage where ever you want it…ok, I`m just kidding, but if anyone knows the price feel free to write a comment ;-)

Eat Pray Love

The day before we left Bali we decided to make a trip to Ubud, which is about an hour north of Kuta. It’s the city of the Monkey Forest and picturesque rice terraces – unfortunately none of the above was “cooperating” that day!
When we walked towards the area of the Monkey Forest one monkey had nothing better to do than jumping on my shoulders and starting to bite me – luckily Bernd was right next to me and gave that monkey a nice flight back to the ground. After that I was wishing for nothing more than a shotgun…
Anyway, we went into the Monkey Forest (without the shotgun ;-) ) and tried to take good pictures of the monkeys and the temple – only one part turned out successfull as you might see. For the part concerning the temple there were just too many people and too many monkeys, aswell. Since Bernd was trying to take a picture with long-time exposure these were the least components he needed (he started to wish for a shotgun as well…) – I really felt sorry for him after half an hour of desperate camera clicking!
The second theme for the day were the rice terraces outside Ubud! It might sound easy to take pictures of them, even a panorama is doable – but not if it’s raining cats and dogs!
But hey, I’m not complaining! We saw a monkey fly, the hawkers nearly left us alone because it was raining – that’s something new on Bali!

P.S. In case you’re wondering about the title of this article: parts of the movie “Eat Pray Love” were casted in the Monkey Forest of Ubud. Julia Roberts takes a bike ride around the temple shown on the first picture…

Bali – island of temples

Due to the continuing erruption of the volcano Merapi the airspace of Indonesia was partly restricted for some days. But Singapore Airlines already started to approach Jakarta again, so we decided that it was save to travel from Sydney to Denpasar with a stop-over in Singapore. From Sydney to Singapore we were flying with the new Airbus A380-800, a huge aircraft that normally dims minor turbulences – unfortunately a thunderstorm above northern Australia wasn’t a minor turbulence and therefore the airplane shook quite well ( and fell a few meters).
Compared to the first flight the connecting flight from Singapore to Denpasar wasn’t that bad. The only thing that made me nervous was that you could not see anything besides thick white “fog” that surrounded the plane the entire flight – I don’t know what kind of “fog” it was and I sure will never find out (I will not even ask)…  :-?

Anyway, the last three days we spent relaxing and sightseeing in Kuta and the
surrounding area: We hung around the pool in our hotel, enjoyed the sunshine and drank as many fresh fruit juices as we want – keeping in mind that a glass of freshly squeezed pineapple juice costs about 10.000 Indonesian Rupiah ( approx. 0,80 Euro cents)!
Yesterday we hired two motorbikes to visit a temple on the peninsula south of Kuta. Now it’s not difficult to drive a motorbike, but it is challenging to drive a motorbike on the left in a crowded city where there are no road traffic regulations – some of us didn’t like that at all! ;-)
After we left the crazy streets of Kuta it took us about an hour to get to the sea temple Pura Luhur Ulu Watu. The temple itself is forbidden for non-hindu worshippers and as it is perched atop sheer cliffs that drop straigt into the ocean you really can’t see a lot. Nevertheless we still had fun as there are plenty of monkeys living in the fields of the temple who are trying to steal everything from a to z that looks edible  – from aluminum foil to zippers!

Back in Sydney

Together with Katha and Jo-Jo (two girls we met in the Jackeroo course) we took the train back to Sydney and spent our last days in Australia with blogging (and viewing 2000 Leconfield pictures before, damn I can`t see them any more!! ;-) ), shopping, watching The Social Network in the cinema and visiting the Sydney Wildlife World where you can see all the typical Australian animals like kangaroos, koalas or an alligator. In the evenings we borrowed DVDs and enjoyed them with a few bottles of VB – “The best cold beer” in Australia – together with Klara (another girl we met on the ranch) who came back from Tamworth and joined us the last day…

It was very sad when we had to say goodbye to the girls, but I`m quite sure it won`t be the last time we met…he-he… ;-)

Jackaroo & Jillaroo School @ Leconfield

About 12 days ago we left Sydney and headed towards Tamworth, a small town that is known for it’s  big countrymusic festival. But for some people Tamworth is known as something totally different: A gateway to the Jackeroo and Jillaroo School in Leconfield. (For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about: Jackaroos and Jillaroos are the Aussie counterpart of the American Cowboy and Cowgirl.) So for the last 12 days we lived on a farm without mobile and internet reception, with more animals than human beings and a whole lot of white toast. :-P

On the first days we were introduced to the basics you need to live and work on a farm which are horseback riding, handmilking a cow, cracking a whip and opening beer bottles in many different ways ;-) If you pass all those basics the daily routine was the following:

Normally the day starts with breakfast at 7.30 am – except when it was your turn of handmilking Bella and Trinity. Then your day starts at least one hour earlier with two mooing cows, sore muscles in your arms and some cow poop :-?

After breakfast you catch your horse, clean it, put saddle and bridal on and head towards a paddock to do cattle mustering, which is basically the attempt to get every cow, calf and bull to walk the direction you want them to – sounds easy but isn’t! If you have all the cattle in the yard it’s time for lunch break which was between 11.30 am and 1.30 pm. In case there isn’t a mustering there are always jobs like stick picking, wheet picking or fencing. When lunchtime was over the cattle work began – the seperated calves get ear tags, brandings and if they’re really lucky, which means beeing a male calf, they get castrated as well! Click below to watch the video clip Timo has recorded but, please, be warned that you’ll might see more than you want to!

Depending on how many calves there are the job is usually done by 4 or 5 pm – then it’s time to ride home. At 7 pm the farm was nearly deserted as everybody gathered in the kitchen for dinnertime. After that you usually open a bottle of beer (or more) and play some cards – but no longer than midnight because in about 6 hours Bella and Trinity are calling again! ;-)

Inbetween the daily jobs there was always time for jokes, songs and a whole
lot of laughter -  especially when Hilton aka. “Chuck Norris” got “… very, very upset!”

Thanks again, Susi & Hilton, and, of course, Brian, who make Leconfield what it is!

And to all our new friends from Germany, Austria, Denmark, England, Netherlands, Norway, Canada and, of course, Australia: Thank you guys for 12 incredible days, for all the songs that have been sung, for all the “Snap!” we played and for all the s*** we did! We’re wishing all of you a great time in Down Under, lots of experiences and even more fun!

Bye for now!

New Zealand is done, what comes next? Of course, Australia! Sydney. What a surprise! ;-)
Two days ago we arrived in the land of Vegemite and Kangaroos and we`ve liked it from the first minute. People are very friendly (except of the grumpy staff in our Hostel), you can still buy chocolate Donuts like in USA and the Darling Harbour of Sydney is just amazing. A few of the city´s best attractions are there as well e. g. the Sydney Aquarium with a big exhibit – the SHARK HQ – where you can see a 7 meters model of the Great White and you get a lot of background information. They also had living sand tiger sharks and several reef sharks – we spent a lot of time watching them, this time separated by a glass pane (…)

One evening we went to the world`s biggest IMAX 3D theatre and watched the Legend of the Guardians. We`ve seen the premier in Hollywood, do you remember? And yes, the movie was as good as expected. Not funny, but with very impressive pictures!

Tommorow we`re gonna leave Sydney and take a train to the North to … hm … who knows? This being said: It`s the reason we were not able to extend our stay in New Zealand (because we had booked in advance) and it will be somewhere in the Outback. I think we will not have Internet access but we`ll be back for blogging in about 10 days with (I hope) a lot of pictures and (of course!) with some exciting storys!

Take care!
