Inle hot springs

Having seen everything on Inle Lake that we wanted to we decided we would explore some of the surrounding area and chose to cycle to some natural hot springs about 12km away. We hired some dodgy bikes from our hotel (mine only had one brake working) and set off. When we got there mid-morning we … Continue reading Inle hot springs

Inle Lake

Today we woke at six, packed, had breakfast and checked out before seven. At 0700 we clambered aboard an 11m long wooden boat which would be our vehicle for the majority of the day and then we set off through a swarm of lilies, along a canal, onto Inle Lake. As soon as we hit … Continue reading Inle Lake

Marrakech again

We woke up on the 1st of January 2019 to the sound of seagulls (much like the sound of strangled cats) in our little room in Essaouria. After one last game of backgammon on the terrace, we headed out to find our first coffee of the year. Having wandered past a little bakery a few … Continue reading Marrakech again
