Welcome back blog readers, and apologies for the incredibly long wait between posts! Sometimes real life gets in the way of travel and blogging and stuff, so we will ease back into it with a short one  🙂

Tony has been furiously working on his fifth book for the last few months – in fact, he started this book at the same time as the fourth one, but soon realized that six months in Asia AND a wedding were simply too much for one book to handle! (To be honest, it’s still a bit too long at just over 150,000 words – but we did have some pretty crazy adventures in those six months!)

Some of you may have seen the sneaky-leaks about the title of book five, but in case you haven’t, here it is:

Shave My Spider

Yes, I know this is a weird title for a book, but let’s be honest – most of the content is a little crazy too. My advice: expect the unexpected!

Orangutang Toy

Here is a little teaser of something that will be on the front cover…Anyone have any ideas what it could possibly be?  🙂 

Tony is a perfectionist, so unfortunately his books can take a lot longer to be completed. For example, he has been known to stare at a sentence for hours on end, and change just one little word… only to change it back hours later! (Yes, this is frustrating… so I am withholding wine and bacon in these situations 🙂 )

However, I feel like it pays off sometimes – like in this brilliant turn of phrase he uses while we are in China:

China Book Text

Six months of travel has been hard to fit into one book, but Tony has selected the weirdest and most amusing adventures to include. Now, to whet your appetite, I will share some photos of our time in Asia – and leave you with the promise that the book will be available by the 15th of May 2016!

(It better be, or I will be having stern words with Mr Slater 😆 )

We have also started up a professional Instragram account at @AdventureWithoutEnd and we have a personal one each @TonyJamesSlater and @Kristaroo85 which we will update regularly with photos of our adventures.

Roo on the Great Wall of China

One of the highlights of our travels in China was our 3 hour hike along the Great Wall of China….which truly is GREAT! 😛

Mongolian Horse and Cart.

We caught a lift with this lovely Mongolian horseman to the local bus stop.

This was the highlight of Tonys trip to China – Climbing the infamous Hua Shan Stairs!

Red Panda

We had to wait ages for this little Red Panda to come out at the Chengdu Panda Base in China.

Also, recently Tony received his 800th review on Amazon.com, which is absolutely amazing, and humbling, and we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your support.

Until next time!
