Welcome to the Bracey blog

We have often ventured to far off locations for short holidays - this has given us all a real taste for travel and we dreamed of being able to take Ella and Florence away for an extended, more intrepid adventure. In November 2006 our dream became a reality when we headed off on an 8 month trip visiting Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and India. As we were away for so long it was part of the girls education to write about their experiences and it was something that we all ended up really enjoying.

It gave friends and family something to look at while we were away and is a great record for us all to look at now we are back.

We have tried to fill it with links, photos, videos and other useful information for anyone thinking of embarking on a similar adventure. We hope you enjoy looking at it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
