The cost of travelling light in life

This post is intended as pure travel inspiration; mostly for the people that dream of packing up everything and wandering for a while. For the people who think it costs a lot of money to follow the road, and those that have asked us along the way “How can you possibly be travelling for so […]

Photo dump: Kicking back on the Cambodian Coastline

After some guys on a motorbike tried to relieve Kris of of her camera in Phnom Penh, leaving her with fractured ribs, we decided ignoring the problem wasn’t going to work. We needed to stop and rest. De-accelerating near the water was the natural choice; so we’ve been getting well acquainted with a couple of […]

Exploring the remote desert of la guajira

In the Northern most Colombian province of La Guajira an expansive and unforgiving desert meets the Caribbean sea. A remote wilderness of scorching heat where indigenous communities are barely surviving on the gifts from the ocean and visitors have the opportunity to feel completely alone. The disparity between rich and poor is glaringly obvious as […]

Taking a walk in Tayrona National Park

After a week in Taganga we were getting used to the pace of life that surrounds a Colombian fishing village; until one busy Sunday when I went to the beach and ended swimming in to a large human turd. So when a fellow Hostel goer said “Tayrona’s got to have the best coastline of beaches […]

Fishing for sunsets at Taganga

Some people refer to Taganga’s beach side location as terrible, on the less common side she’s also well loved. For us, Taganga is turning out to be the perfect place to re-energise. Granted, if your looking for the classic Caribbean beach, Taganga is not going to deliver; with an abundance of rubbish you need to […]

A dedo [Verb]: By thumb, hitchhiking to Patagonia

That, or a shortcut to the front page of lurid newspapers. Looking for a fair share of […]

Keeping it tight living the wwoofing life

Our quest for refining ‘tight-ass’ while travelling has reached a new level of willing scabbiness. For three months happily farming our way around Argentina we’ve managed to spend close to $500 each. Granted, we haven’t moved much and when we did it was some kind of hitch-hiking joy. We’ve also completely refrained from alcohol compared […]

Photo dump: The road to Patagonia

A roadside perspective from our week long ride. Hitching our way from Cordoba to El Bolson – Patagonia, across a diverse 2,000kms. Along the way we where humbled by local generosity, luna landscapes, towering volcanoes, our own unwashed humanity and enormous stretches of uninhabited beauty.  k&a Social media whore us:

Visa run from Buenos Aires to Uruguay

Visa runs are the equivalent of doing taxes for the chronic traveller, that pesky duty that every now and then needs to be done. After ninety days in Buenos Aires we did our first visa run to Colonia de Sarmiento, Uruguay, a town with stagnant charm and deafening peace.  The pictures posted earlier will give […]

Gluttony on a budget

Champagne on a beer budget is a good Aussie expression I like to refer to, even though I know it doesn’t sound like much fun to skimp on food! Fine tuning our taste buds, to reflect our wallet, has been an interesting challenge – but we haven’t exactly been going hungry. We have managed to […]
