Vero and Thomas' Travels
Hello and welcome!
This website is our on-going attempt at preserving and sharing our trips, all the wonderful impressions, the memorable moments and the odd opinionated observation, with friends, relatives or indeed anyone who is interested.
There is a blog and there are sections with photographs and further background information about the countries and regions we're currently visiting or have seen in the recent past (see Thomas' website for some assorted bits and pieces re our earlier trips between 2003 and 2009).
In March 2012, we returned from a four-month jaunt through south-east Asia (Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos; dubbed Calamyti 2011). More about that trip can be found in our Calamyti 2011 pages.
And earlier, in spring 2010, we've crawled, for the umpteenth time, through the Nepalese mountains.
A few general questions you might have are perchance answered on the FAQs page. There is also a page with links to some interesting sites which we ourselves visit every now and then. Last but not least, if you want to get in touch, see the Contact page. We read all mails we receive (though not necessarily in a very speedily manner) and we appreciate any kind of feedback; however, we're especially keen to hear from you if you spot an error or an omission or if you have a suggestion.
NOTE: If you are using Microsoft's Internet Explorer and the submenus look weird or out of place, try to switch off the so-called “Compatibility” or “Quirks” mode. As the name implies, this mode cajoles even the most modern Microsoft browsers into behaving like their stone-age IE6 forefather. Sigh… (Or, perhaps even better, get a decent web browser like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.)
Our multimedia stuff (ie slideshows, photo galleries, videos and podcasts) uses the Adobe Flash player (a truly execrable piece of software but — at least for the time being — the standard for these things). If you don't see what you think you should see please check whether your browser has a recent version of the Adobe Flash plug-in installed.
