China – 40 things we will miss

China – 40 things we will miss

– M – V – China Life China definitely has its pros and cons, and living here really has shown us both sides of the country. We’ve never lived in another country before and it’s been an amazing experience, to not only truly experience a different culture, but to also live somewhere where the language is completely and utterly foreign. We are learning Mandarin but it’s a slow process, and although the language makes absolute sense, (Monday is literally translated…

Taking the leap

Taking the leap

– V – Travel I’ve often come across the usual comments you get when travelling… ‘I could never do that!’, ‘you went to India on your own?! That’s brave’, ‘Do you not find it hard to leave?’. I overheard a conversation a while ago, someone had commented that they didn’t have a passport, hadn’t had one for 10 years and were actually proud of that?! I understand everyone has different interests, however I think this may be contributing to the…

50 things they don’t tell you about travelling

– V – Travel Thought I’d write a quick list, (which turned in to a long one of us laughing over what we thought of!) to try and put in to writing what we’ve discovered from this amazing experience travelling. It may seem like some of them are horrific or gross, but it’s all added to everything and we would not change a single thing! Don’t let it put you off, it’s a cliché but we’ve grown as people and…

The Doha Stopover

The Doha Stopover

– M – Doha, Qatar Our Journey began with a quick stop in Doha, Qatar. The Airport. Doha, Qatar. We had a pretty rough 7 hour flight, someone had kindly spilled drink under our seats on the flight before, I didn’t manage to get any sleep at all on the flight so the tour would be like pulling an all-nighter for me. So as we landed we stumbled into the airport with sticky wet bags and bleary eyes. The first…

Running around Doha, Qatar

Running around Doha, Qatar

– V – Doha, Qatar The Sights Doha Summary I just landed in my 29th country, Doha in Qatar, and I couldn’t be more excited. It starts our 9-month trip off with a country in the middle east (a region I’ve never visited before!) before we head to Bangkok and Asia tomorrow. The flight, umm, not so great, I must have had about 3 hours sleep if I was lucky, and Matt got nothing. I’m used to Qatar Airways being…

Matt.. The Second Wheel

Matt.. The Second Wheel

– M – About Us As Tolkien once wrote “Not all those who wander are lost.” My name is Matt and at this point I fall into the category of those who have been wandering for some considerable time and are hopelessly lost… So, to describe this half of JustOffOut (check out the other half by clicking here!)… I’m from the UK, a place called Essex to be precise…  let’s not jump to conclusions though, I’m not orange with fake…
