Tanzanian Safari-ing + Zanzibari Lazy-ing

As usual, I'm about half a century behind on blogging...my bad. Here we go again: Days 223-238: After wrapping up in Kenya, we spent just over two weeks in Tanzania, with 6 of those days (5 nights) spent on safari and the remainder spent appreciating the glorious heat, humidity, and clear waters of Zanzibar.

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 …

Here’s the second half of our Filipino adventures: Day 141, continued: Electricity is overrated? Once I had my pants back, I was a much happier woman.

Bora Bora = HEAVEN

This post is really late…sorry! We haven’t had proper internet in weeks (#islandlife) and now we’re on safari in India so it’s even worse, but we’re trying. Here goes! Strangely enough, we left Auckland on September 11th. In theory it should be a day like any other, but it always has a strange, ominous feeling …

We’ve gone to the Land Down Under

When we were planning all of these travels, we were torn between heading towards Asia vs. Oceania after Hawaii, since both routes were plausible. After researching flight prices, best routes, and weather patterns (i.e. avoiding monsoon season in Asia), we decided Oceania should go first. Yes, we recognized this meant we would be going to …
