Probably and them being comedians. so trying to find humour in something where there is none. Enjoyable overall though as you say.

I enjoyed it – but I take your point about them being disrespectful at times. I wonder if it’s something about there being two of them, so the disrespectful bits come out in the banter between them.

Nothing like as good as Sue Perkins going up the Mekong!

I’ve just been watching the first two episodes of Dara & Ed’s Road to Mandalay where they travel from Malaysia to Myanmar. I’m a bit mixed about it really as its brought back some fond memories of my trips to Malaysia & Thailand and at times I’ve enjoyed their humour. At other times I’ve felt that their attempts to make humour are out of place, bordering on disrespectful. Should you want to catch up with this and form your own opinion on it, its still available on BBC iPlayer.

Out of interest Steve, have you read the graphic travelogue book by Guy Delisle about Malyasia ?

Wakefield, West Yorks.

I didn’t make it to Borneo – looks like I’m going to have to go back!!

Just to add further richness to this thread, @Debbie has done a fabulous 2 part write up of here experiences in Borneo. Loved reading them and the memories came flooding back. Grab a cup of tea and have a read, its a great way to forget about the gloom outside for a few mins

I’ve just watched the first episode of Paul O’Grady’s Animal Orphans on ITV. He visited many of the places I did on my trip, so brought back happy memories. Very jealous of the hands on access he got with the baby Orangs.
