New Years on a Junk Boat in Halong Bay

We wanted to do something a little bit different for New Years this year, and we figured just being in Vietnam was a good start to that. Rather then dinner and drinks in the city somewhere, we decided to spent a couple nights on a junk boat floating around Ha Long Bay. I know, I…

3D Art Museum Seminyak

After a day wandering around Seminyak and getting very burnt at the beach, we were looking to do something out of the sun for a bit before being picked up to climb Mount Ijen. Not wanting to spend a ton of money drinking cocktails or getting massages (which are all readily available and then some), we instead…

Climbing Mount Ijen

We decided as we were planning our trip to Bali that, if at all possible, we’d like to go to neighbouring Java Island and climb Mt. Ijen, which is an active volcano with a sulfur lake in the crater. Having read up it a bit, it sounded really cool and something a bit different, which…

Perth

We spent almost 7 weeks in Perth during March and April before making our way north. If I’m honest, we flew into Perth because it was the cheapest place to fly into and it was the shortest flight, rather than any big desire to see Perth. But, in hindsight, I’m glad we did, because we…

Kununurra

You may have noticed a lack of posts over the past few weeks, which has mainly been due to lack of Wi-Fi and terrible phone signal where we are at the moment. Where is that, you ask? Kununurra, Western Australia. Way up towards the top of Australia – 3319 km from Perth, which took us…

24 hours in Dubai

Dubai isn’t a place either myself nor Rich have ever had a strong desire to see; however; we had to stop there during our flight from Johannesburg to Perth, and as we knew we wouldn’t be going back anytime soon, we decided to add a day to see a bit of the city. We arrived…

Cape Town

After Kilimanjaro and 8 days on Safari, we were so ready to spend more than 2 days in one place, and that place happened to be Cape Town. Once again we were up early (3 am) to get to Nairobi airport for our flight to South Africa via a layover in Ethiopia, and it was…

New Year, Past and Present

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018! As I sit snuggled up on the couch after another great New Year (feeling slightly worse for wear), I’m thinking that it just might be one of my favourite holidays. I’ve had so many great experiences with so many different people over the years that make up some of the best…

#tbt – Alaska 

The other day I asked Rich what his favourite trip that we’ve taken together thus far is and after a few minutes pondering his reply was: “Either our Canadian west coast road trip, or Alaska”. When I mentioned that with all the places we’ve been to, it’s interesting that his top two are Canada and…
