New Zealand – North Island

Our journey around New Zealand started in Auckland. A large relief landing after a long flight from India! We had an AirBnB booked in the suburbs of Auckland, where we planned to stay for 3 nights to adjust to the time zone, buy a car and plan our route around NZ. Our AirBnB was amazing! Hosted by a lovely British expat, who many will now … Continue reading New Zealand – North Island


DELHI Are we ready for India?! We fly from Cambodia, via a quick stop in Bangkok, to New Delhi, landing around 1am, feeling a bit tired and slightly nervous on how we will find the craziness of India.

We had booked a ‘bungalow’ by the beach in advance of leaving for our trip, so we knew Christmas wouldn’t be spending in a shady hostel feeling like a … Continue reading All I want for Christmas is… a tan, a cocktail, some Pad Thai and maybe a massage?

We’re in Bangkok Baby

ARRIVING IN BANGKOK So after many emotional farewells, we finally boarded our flight to Bangkok. The first stretch, 5 hours to Amman, Jordan; we’ve never been so relieved to have a 3 hour wait! After surviving some bearable on-flight food, we treated ourselves to a turkish coffee in Amman Airport which was categorically horrendous, and had a wonder around the airport to find a lot … Continue reading We’re in Bangkok Baby
