There’s a lot to think about before you go travelling, even after you’ve picked a destination or two (or three, or four…)

Where will you stay? How much money will you spend? How much luggage will you take with you?

Luckily, we’ve got you covered.

A Postcard from Borneo: Our Wildlife Adventure

Borneo was the last leg of our travels. We spent 7 days there before the big flight to Sydney. There was a huge sense of relief as we got our flights from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur to Sandakan, mostly because now, everything was already paid for. The whole week was essentially a private, organised tour that we’d booked months and months ago. With funds getting steadily lower, it was brilliant to not have to worry about things like airport transfers, meals and day trips.

It was a very relaxing way to end our adventures. After hiking through Sri Lanka, trekking in Thailand and motor-biking down Vietnam it was great to not have to make any decisions and let someone else (literally) take the steering wheel.

Half a World Away: 2017 Summary and Review

Half a World Away: 2017 Summary and Review

I’m a pretty down to earth person. I don’t normally go in for the whole; new year, new beginning, time for reflection etc. etc. etc. But I’m meeting a lot of new people at the moment. They ask where I’m from and how I got to where I am now, and actually, it does make me stop and think about all the changes that have taken place over the past year.

A Postcard from Thailand: Koh Phangan, Krabi & Phuket

Tom and I flew back to Thailand after our two-week adventure in Vietnam. This time we by-passed Bangkok completely, heading straight for the coach and ferry to Koh Phangan. It was a LONG 24-hour journey, but totally worth it when we arrived at our little beach-side […]

A Postcard from Vietnam Part 3: Hoi An & Ho Chi Minh City

It was the ride from Hue to Hoi An that was our most eventful journey yet. Actually, it pretty much sums up the entire reason I began recording our travels. Because at the end of the day it’s not for social media and it’s not […]

A Postcard from Vietnam Part 2: The Motorcycle Diaries

On our last day in Hanoi I did the one thing that I’d promised my poor mother that I wouldn’t do. Helmets and ponchos at the ready, Tom and I jumped on the 100cc Honda Winn that we’d bought (that’s right, not rented, bought) and […]

A Postcard from Vietnam Part 1: Hanoi & Ha Long Bay

We were very excited to finally arrive in Hanoi. Mostly because of how difficult it had been to even get there in the first place. All the seasoned backpackers that we’d chatted to throughout our time in Sri Lanka, Thailand and Laos had raved about […]
