Hi, My name is Áine Hickey. I'm Irish. I love travelling - learning about new people, experiencing new cultures, eating new food and of course, trying all the local beer. I am presently lucky enough to be unemployed and homeless, as I am travelling around the world with my boyfriend.
I also plan on sticking some photos in for town near me where I live, once I get a chance to visit them.
Overland To India and Through South East Asia to Australia
My biggest adventure so far was travelling for 15 months. Myself and my boyfriend travelled over land to India, then through South East Asia to Australia.
We started off in The Netherlands where we live. We spent a few days in Copenhagen, and Stockholm on our way to Norway. We spent three weeks there, travelling up to Nordkapp and on to Russia. We spent a month in Russia, making our way to Mongolia. We travelled for 20 days around the beautiful country side there, and another 10 days in UB sorting our visas and relaxing.
Next stop, China. We arrived just after the Olympics. We spend a few weeks in the North, travelling from Beijing through Datong, Pingyao, Xian to Xining. Here we organised a trip through Tibet to Nepal. We spent one and a half months there, before heading to India. We covered all this overland.
After two months in India we took our first flight to Hong Kong. We loved China so much, we wanted to go back. We went to Macau, then spent another 1 1/2 months in China. We then visited South East Asia - Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.
USA - I been here a few times. I lived in New Haven, Connecticut for a summer during college. I travelled around that area, including Boston and New York. I spent 3 weeks in Dallas, 3 weeks driving around Southern California, and have been skiing in Denver.
Here are some of my favourite photos that I've uploaded to wikitravel.
