Welcome to the Not Yet Decrepit Traveller blog.

I am trying to see and experience everything I can of this wonderful world of ours, before I fall off my twig.

Combining my two loves of photography and writing, in this blog I am sharing our travel experiences with a touch of humour.

Enjoy!

One advantage of going from Europe is that the time zone is more or less the same, so there is no problem with jet lag. It took 12 hours in two six-hour l...
