Phuket, Singapore and Tioman

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007
After nearly 15 months at sea we are taking a two month break with a trip to the UK and Canada to catch up with friends and family and to avoid what is not the best cruising weather in Asia. The boat is bedded down in Sebana Cove just across from Singapore in southern Malaysia following a pleasant two weeks cruising around the Tioman Group of Islands (east coast Malaysia). The coming break has caused us to reflect on the trip so far. Many of our friends have asked us some interesting questions – what do you do all day? do you get bored? has the trip been as we expected? what have been the highlights? what have been the challenges? how long do you spend at sea? and how have the kids adapted to their new life?
