We're finally coming to the end of our Asian excursion, and what a fantastic, diverse, and enriching section of our trip it has been. New experiences met us at every stop, from the Middle East to the islands of Japan. We made fast friends in the most unlikely of scenarios and caught up with family so far from home. And, of course, we also fell in love with the furry, scaly, gregarious beasts of this vast continent.
The critters we'll miss
Sleepily obedient donkey (Israel - Sea of Galilee)
Ibexes squadding up (Israel - Jerusalem)
Jordan's next top camel showing off his smize (Jordan - Wadi Rum)
Another day at the office donkey (Jordan - Petra)
Shimmering desert mermaid (Dubai)
Afternoon snack elephant (Sri Lanka)
Brahmas on the move (Burma)
'Oh hello welcome to my teahouse!' koi (Taipei)
Wild Christmas snowmen (Japan)
Our last post! Some not-too-deep thoughts and critical stats from our year in motion.
