Joe's Travels - Round the World 2003

 Elephant-trekking in Thailand
The idea behind the joestravels website was to maintain an online record of my round the world travels from February to April 2003.

I set off from London on 13th February and, together with a friend I used to work with, travelled to Thailand, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, The Cook Islands, California, and back to London on 15th April.

 Aitutaki, Cook Islands

Highlights were elephant-trekking in Thailand, snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef and jetboating on the Dart River near Queenstown in New Zealand - but without doubt the best day of the whole trip was visiting the island of Aitutaki, one of the Cook Islands. Favourite city... it's got to be Sydney.

Enormous thanks are due to the following people, who were so hospitable and helped make the trip so enjoyable:

 Lake Wakatipu, New Zealand

Jon & Brigitte, Chia & Kelvin, Bryan & Susan, Nick & Fong, Chris & Helen, Jim & Anne, Rick, Anella & Paul, Nick & Tanny, Caroline, Don & Jan. A huge thank you goes to ManLan who was great company and a wonderful travelling companion for two months.

Thanks for visiting the joestravels site - hope you enjoy this record!
