Kenya, part 2 – Nairobi & Diani Beach

It's been a busy couple of weeks...whoops. Here we go again! Back when we were starting to plan our trip, we both knew we wanted to find a volunteer opportunity somewhere along the way, preferably in Africa since we knew our time in Asia would already be pretty packed. We looked at what felt like …

Bali, Bali, Bo-Bali

Greece was lovely, but I was ready to head back to the tropics. Though a bit illogical to head all the way back to Asia, I was determined to make it to Bali on this trip and we found a way to make it work post-Christmas with some flight finagling. In retrospect, I should have …

10 Days of Ancient Greece

To say that I've been slacking would be a serious understatement...sorry! Here we go again: After 2 much needed (semi-relaxing) weeks over the Christmas holidays with family in Luxembourg, we headed towards Greece. We decided ahead of time that this would be our only European stop on our RTW tour, mostly because we've both been …

Philippines, part 1

Clearly I'm struggling to stay on the blogging bandwagon (#fail) but here's some more catch-up... Day 131: Doritos for first dinner This day was mostly lost to travel, so there's not much to say, BUT I would like to report that the Manila airport is a tragedy, or at least the domestic terminal is. Our …

Here’s to catching up…eventually. Day 106 – Day 113: Eat, tan, read, sleep, repeat After wrapping up our short time in Cambodia, it was …

Angkor WHAT?! (aka Siem Reap)

Before continuing onto part 3 of our Thai adventures, we first headed to Cambodia for a week of adventures in Siem Reap. Day 100 (!): All things Angkor Another Air Asia flight under our belts, we arrived in Siem Reap in the early afternoon and met up with our pre-arranged tuk tuk driver to get …

Thailand, part 2 – Chiang Mai

Our Thai adventures continue... Day 94: Bugs...yum? We had yet another Air Asia flight that morning, this time to head to Chiang Mai, a city in northern Thailand. The flight passed without issue and we were at our new hotel--Rendezvous Classic House--by mid afternoon. We found a random spot for lunch that afternoon (there weren't …

42 Wallaby Way, Sydney!

We wrapped up our time in The Land Down Under in Sydney--home to so many of my favorite Finding Nemo references! Here's what we did: Day 34: Not all Airbnbs are created equal We flew from Melbourne to Sydney in the morning and managed to figure out public transport to our Airbnb pretty easily--already Sydney's …
