The Delight of Hiring a Driver in Bali, Indonesia.

Bali is an island covered in the lush greenery of rice paddies, mountains and forests; while stunningly beautiful, this does make getting from A to B a little more challenging than you would expect. The plethora of winding, narrow country roads along with the ridiculous number of motorcycles almost completely rules out large modes of […]

Ubud, Bali – Indonesia.

Known as the spiritual capital of Bali, Ubud is a hub of cultural activity. In fact, apart from a beach side location it has everything you could ask for from a holiday destination. We spent four days here right at the beginning of our final three weeks and I found it to be a delightfully […]

Bula! – Two Weeks in Fiji with Awesome Adventures.

One thing to know before you book that plane ticket is that Fiji is rather expensive. In fact, I think due to the high number of imported products from Australia and New Zealand, a lot of the Pacific Islands are. Unfortunately we failed to do any research into this and ended up being those people […]

Cape Tribulation & The Daintree Rainforest, Australia.

Our day trip to Cape Tribulation marked the most northern point of Australia visited during our two and a half months in the country. A mere hour and 45 minutes from Port Douglas it makes for the perfect road trip by camper or car, however there are also numerous organised tours that you can take […]

Port Douglas, Australia.

We originally didn’t think we had time to visit Port Douglas, which is a couple of hours north of Cairns and if I’m honest I wasn’t that bothered about going. Matt however voiced his interest and I am so glad he did; Port Douglas ended up being one of my favourite places that we visited […]

Cairns & The Great Barrier Reef, Australia.

From Mission Beach we headed up to Cairns, where we stayed for three days in a campsite that was approximately 20 minutes walk away from the the city centre. On arrival we became aware of how different the climate is, even though we weren’t overly far from our last stop. The air felt thick and […]

Falling From 14,000ft in Mission Beach, Australia.

Mission Beach is a tiny seaside town with one of the most sunbathe friendly beaches we have been to; it’s huge and it’s gorgeous. Honestly if you didn’t know you were in Australia, you would think you were on an exotic tropical island somewhere. The town centre is very small but very lovely, with some […]
