Happy New Year from 2PAXfly

Wishing you all a Happy New Year for 2019!

I'm currently in northern New South Wales, at Byron Bay, dodging international backpackers, and attendees of the Falls Festival.

The image above is a little deceptive since it's of the pool area at the Strand Hotel, Yangon, and not where we are staying at Byron Bay.


What's in store for 2019

2018 was a great year for travel, but not a great year for 2PAXfly. Life has been busy, including trips to Asia and Europe. Unfortunately, this blog has had to play second fiddle to my usual income-generating activities. Consequently, I have scads of trip reports to catch up on which I will do over the next few months. 

Don' t be surprised if contributions to the blog are a little slow for the first 6 weeks of 2019. I have a rather important life event to organise, and a couple of large work projects that need execution.

But - in late February, we are off to 
Latin America - or what is more usually refered to South America. (I have been advised that 'Latin' is a more appropriate term, as it does not imply dependence on a 'North' America)

What's been happening?

In the meantime, you can catch up on what's been happening in the world of travel - according to us - below.

That's it for 2018, until next week . . .

Happy Travels,
