Thanks to Dave from Dave’s Travel Corner for interviewing us about our world travels! We are honored to be included on his site and to share about our travels. Read a few of the fantastic questions below and the FULL INTERVIEW on Dave’s Travel Corner
Q. What are your travel plans for the rest of your current RTW trip?
George: We are in Nepal until April 15 when we fly on AirAsia.com to Kaula Lumpur, Malaysia. We are planning to travel in Eastern Malaysia and Southern Thailand for a few months. After that we will use either the dice of price or some kind of sign to determine what to do next. We have ideas to continue heading North East in Asia to Korea, the Philippines and maybe following in your footsteps to Palau.
Lisa: The Dice of Price is when we see which flight is the cheapest and go there! Our new best way to figure that out is with the app, SkyScanner.
Q. Lisa – tell us about your time working on a cruise ships – that is certainly one way to see the world, versus how you are traveling now – independently.
Lisa: Traveling as a backpacker with no plans of where to stay was a huge adjustment for me after living in a five star moving hotel. I was very concerned that we would end up sleeping on the streets. During our first year sabbatical, we did have nowhere to sleep twice. Once in Yogakarta around Christmas time, we drove most of the night in the rain in a taxi and found over forty hotels that were “penu” or full! Another time in Koh Samet, Thailand, we arrived on a Sunday night during a three-day weekend and full moon party, and ended up sleeping under that stars on benches at a bar. Both times it all worked out and now I just don’t worry anymore! I have to say working for Princess Cruises, I always had a room to sleep in and I always knew where we were going, but I like traveling with George much more!
