We’d always wanted to visit the US capital, so we planned it into our America itinerary. We spent a total of three days in Washington DC, and we pretty much walked all over the city!
A trip to San Francisco wouldn’t be the same without a visit to the city’s infamous island penitentiary. This post contains everything you need to know about visiting Alcatraz.
Hopefully, you’ve already read about our South Island adventures! Now, it’s time to move on to our New Zealand North Island itinerary. We spent a week travelling between the NZ capital, Wellington, and Auckland. Here’s what we did!
Before our road trip, we put a LOT of thought into our two week New Zealand South Island itinerary. It can be difficult to know where to start, so we hope this post will be helpful for anyone looking to spend a couple of weeks on the South Island!
When we first booked our trip to New Zealand, we had no plans whatsoever to throw ourselves out of a plane. Then, a friend of ours mentioned that he was doing it, and we said “why not?” And that’s how we ended up doing a skydive in New Zealand.
If you find yourself in Sydney for a few days, the Blue Mountains National Park is a great little day trip that you can arrange very easily. Want to know how to visit the Blue Mountains from Sydney?
Thinking of driving the Great Ocean Road in two days? If you’re planning to tick this Australian road trip off your bucket list, the scenic coastal route certainly lives up to its name.
Travelling as a couple is one of life’s most amazing experiences. Unsurprisingly, it also comes with plenty of challenges along the way. Here are some truths about travelling as a couple that we’ve learnt over the last few months.
We’ve come to the end of our month-long stay in Bali. I’m sure you all know by now that we prefer to be completely honest on our blog. So here goes…
What do you do when your friends get in touch and ask if you want to get up at 2am to do the Mount Batur sunrise trek? We said “yes”! Then we wondered what we’d let ourselves in for…
Angkor Wat is a regular feature on bucket lists around the world. The complex itself is much bigger than we expected, with so much to see. So how can you make the most of Angkor Wat in three days?
Thinking of flying Bassaka Air from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap? When we were looking for easy ways to get between the two cities, we came across Bassaka Air as an affordable and quick option. So, what was it like?
Before visiting Vietnam, neither of us knew much about the Vietnam War. After visiting the Cu Chi Tunnels we now feel like we understand much more. If you’re already in Ho Chi Minh City, this tour is a must-do!
When you first arrive, learning how to use the roads in Vietnam can be daunting (and downright dangerous). In this post, we’ve put together a list of everything we can think of to help you stay safe on the country’s crazy roads.
What can I say to do Hoi An justice? Before we visited, most of the bloggers we follow told us that Hoi An was their favourite destination in Vietnam. After seeing it for ourselves, we agree!
After more than two months on the road, we’ve decided it’s time to take stock of the gear we’ve loved, loathed and left along the way. We’ll discuss what gear to pack, and what’s best left at home.
We were pretty unlucky with the weather while we were in Hong Kong, but we didn’t let it put us off visiting the Tian Tan Buddha. Despite the grey skies, low clouds and constant drizzle, we were glad we made the trip!
China can be a daunting place. Many travellers visit as part of an organised tour group, but we decided to navigate the country alone. However you plan your trip, these tips for travelling in China will come in handy!
One of the main reasons backpackers bypass China is because of the country’s over-complicated visa application process. It isn’t impossible, but it does take some time and planning.
Although we could’ve easily flown from Beijing to Shanghai, we wanted to do something different. We’ve been hopping on planes like buses recently, so we decided to find out how to use the bullet train!
Our main reason for coming to China was always to visit The Great Wall. Arguably one of the world’s most popular “Bucket List” sights, we were pretty excited to see it for ourselves!
Everybody who comes to Thailand wants to see elephants. Riding these gentle giants is on many peoples’ bucket lists, but please consider a more ethical elephant experience in Thailand.
After spending three weeks braving the bustling city streets of Singapore and Bangkok, Thailand’s beautiful beaches were calling us. We couldn’t wait to soak up the sun in Krabi, and after what has felt like a whirlwind 10 days on the islands, we already can’t wait to come back.
Today, travel and technology go hand-in-hand. I don’t know how we’d get around, or work out exchange rates, or remember every little detail of our itinerary without a handful of really helpful apps. Here are our favourite essential travel apps so far.
When I Googled the question, “How to get to Wat Arun/Wat Pho/The Grand Palace?”, all I was greeted with were confusing, contradictory forum posts. In actual fact, it isn’t that difficult to find out how to get to the Bangkok temples.
Bangkok is generally considered a safe city, but it’s still a good idea to keep your wits about you and make yourself aware of some of the most common scams. In this article, we’ll discuss how best to stay safe in Bangkok.
It goes without saying, we love food. For us, a huge part of the travelling experience is trying the different dishes that each country has to offer. Here, I’ll run through our list of what to eat (and drink) in Singapore. Everything is covered, from cheap eats to budget-blowing feasts!
It’s the question on everyone’s lips before they head off around the world. What do I actually NEED? (And what can I do without)?
Everyone says, “Oh, just quit your job, sell your house and go travelling!” as if it’s that easy. I hate to burst the bubble, but it actually takes a little bit more planning than that.
That was our first step in taking the leap. Accepting that ‘travelling’ was no longer an idle daydream, but a serious, set-in-stone plan that we were working towards.
