Managing on the road

Since I have four minutes of internet time left I thought some of you might like to know more generally how we're coping with life on the road. The kids are doing fabulously well, I have to say -- they're enjoying the trip and are extremely adaptable. Ciaran's reading is really coming along; he can now read the Wimpy Kid diary books by himself, which is a giant leap from where he began in August.

Our one weakness seems to be in keeping track of our stuff. We're leaving a trail across Asia. Since we left home, we've managed to lose a frisbee, Chloe's hat, Chloe's goggles, my watch, one of my sarongs, a bottle of shampoo and I think there were other things but I've lost track of my mental list somewhere along the way as well. Need to do a better job of that! Also, after all that dithering over whether or not to buy/take Nintendo DS's along with us, we took them but failed to bring along a converter, so were unable to use or recharge them throughout Bali. Of course we've put that situation right now that we're in Singapore by buying an Asian adaptor. Woo-hoo!

I can relate to the trail of things that get left behind. I'm sure we've left a trail of lego pieces in hotels, restaurants etc as well as my bikini bottoms. Not sure where they went...
Just wondering, how did you get the photo album onto your blog. I can only add them to my blog entries.

Hi Audrey! I'm not sure about the photo album...It seems you have to upload photos to a gallery before you can select them to appear within a blog entry, so that's what I've been doing. I've just been using the "upload photos" command in the photos section. Hey, we're in Thailand now, are you getting here soon? Bangkok for one more day, the Kanchanaburi for two, then to Chiang Mai and other undetermined parts of the north for maybe two weeks. Not sure after that...somewhere south, maybe Koh Chang or Koh Lanta.
