Rotorua and Tauranga

17.10.16 – 19.10.16 Tauranga (toe-runga) is about 3 hours south-east of Auckland on the coast. It is a lovely town with plenty happening. To make life easier, we hired a car for two days to zoom around the North Island ans visit friends we had met in Cambodia. The only reason we came here was…

Road Trip (New Zealand South Island)

01.10.16 – 17.10.16 When we were planning where to go after being back in Australia, New Zealand seemed the perfect choice. It’s close to Brisbane and Bianca had never been before. We decided to spend 4 weeks with clear intentions to do a road trip and spend time WOOFing. We flew to Christchurch (via Auckland)…

The Neighbourhoods of Seoul

We visited almost every major neighbourhood in Seoul. Each one is different, and offers a different feel. For instance, Itaewon is a major ex-pats area (especially American Military personnel), with lots of western cuisine or Hongdae is a university district, full of pubs, fried chicken and cheap clothing stores. DONGDAEMON This is one of our…

WOOFing in Thailand at Pun Pun

08.08.16 – 22.08.16 Lets just start of by saying WOW, what an experience! When we were in a hostel in Seoul, we met a recently retired couple who were WOOFing around the world to travel and make their money stretch further. Their experiences inspired us to do something similar. WOOFing (Working On Organic Farms) is…

A Week in Chiang Mai

28.07.16 – 08.08.16 We spent 8 full days in Chiang Mai, exploring the town and what it had to offer. Many travellers use Chiang Mai as a base to reach other nearby towns like Pai or Chiang Rai. We admit our travel style is fairly slow, but it gave a great chance to relax, recharge and…

06.11.16 – Bianca’s Birthday, Harajuku, Japan Harajuku is the home of just being yourself! Yoyogi Park in Harajuku allows people to completely express themselves, and on Sundays it’s in full flight.

23.10.16 – Te Puia, Rotorua, New Zealand We were staying in Tauranga with the Sinclair family, incredible people we met while traveling in Cambodia, and they mentioned we were less than an hour away from Rotorua.

It is the home of the Sauvignon Blanc and hundreds of varieties of wine, generally white wine. There are around 100 different wineries scattered around the region. During our stay here we wanted to…

Siem Reap: The Home of Angkor Wat

22.07.16 – 30.07.16 The sole reason to visit Siem Reap is to see the ancient ruins of Angkor. The city was the capital of the ancient Khmer Empire and was home to 1 million people at its peak. Today it is an amazing look back at Khmer architecture. Our time inside Angkor, was one of…

Battambang, Battambong!

26.07.16 – 28.07.16 Cambodia is only a small country, but it is extremely slow to travel between locations. We only had 11 days planned here and had enough time to visit one place outside of Siem Reap and Phnom Penh (both are a must if you’re in Cambodia). If you travel North from Phnom Penh…
