Phase 4: Base Camp

Photo Index

May 2006 - Present

This page is for photos of what we've been up to since returning from our 3 years of running away  travelling.  We've moved from Base Camp and bought our own place, and still do some travelling! 


The most recent trip was 3 and a bit weeks in India at the end of 2009.  Before that, we spent nearly 2 months visiting Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, New Zealand and The Cook Islands at the end of 2008/beginning of 2009.  Definitely a great way to celebrate Christmas (swimming in the sea, thanks Vix!!) and New Year (taking a helicopter ride & zorbing).  (The photos from the bigger trips are here:
