Driving through the Monsoon | Bali, Indonesia

Our car is quarter submerged in water as we drive in and out of water filled ditches. The rain is pouring and we can barely see out of our little rental driving in and out of blindness – our windshield wipers work their very hardest. Road – water – wipe – road – water – […]

6 Month South East Asia Backpacking Trip – Tips for Backpackers

A time comes, especially for us Australia/New Zealand working-holidayers, when your visa ends (this feels like the end of the world) and you don’t want to go home.

Venice in the Rain: Two Days of Wet, Rainy, Beautiful Venice

Venice in the rain is a beautiful sight. When it rains in Venice the tourists stay inside and it’s just you, your umbrella and a journey back in time. At first we were pretty down that it was raining for our 2 days in Venice but it turned out to be a really special trip and […]
