Brazil - Rio to Buzios

BRAZIL | Saturday, 7 Mar 2009 | Views [798] | Comments [2]

Everyone we have spoken to about Rio and everything we read about the place suggests that you are unlikely to come out of it alive – or at least with your belongings still in your possession, so we were a little nervous arriving in Ipanema at 1.30 ... Read more >


Santiago, Chile

CHILE | Sunday, 1 Mar 2009 | Views [415]

A little after the event, but a few words seem appropriate to cover our journey from Auckland to Rio last weekend.   However, i t would be decidedly inappropriate for me to offer too much opinion or perspective on Santiago, Chile as, along with the ... Read more >

Auckland

NEW ZEALAND | Friday, 27 Feb 2009 | Views [436]

Final thoughts from New Zealand then as I sit here in Auckland having just completed a mini-shopping spree in order that some of our clothes look presentable for the beaches and bars of Brazil.   Caroline is currently in the latest of our non-budget ... Read more >


North Island - Wellington to Whangamata

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 19 Feb 2009 | Views [340]

The ferry across from the South to the North Island was slightly disappointing – it’s apparently one of the most spectacular ferry journeys in the world, but unfortunately the mist and rain prevented us from seeing very much at all.   Nevertheless ... Read more >

South Island - The rest of it

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 12 Feb 2009 | Views [413]

We've managed to fit a reasonable amount into the last 10 days or so; luge in Queenstown, fjords at Doubtful Sound, v.English coastal areas in The Catlins, penguins in Oamaru, a heatwave in Akaroa, whale watching in Kaikora, hot springs at Hamner, rope ... Read more >

From Haast to Wanaka

NEW ZEALAND | Monday, 2 Feb 2009 | Views [407] | Comments [1]

I'm thrilled to say the weather has improved significantly since we left the west coast.  We drove from Haast over the Haast Pass to Wanaka, stopping off en route at various beauty spots for photos or to be assailed by my nememis - sandflies. I was ... Read more >

NZ - First Impressions

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 31 Jan 2009 | Views [347]

We're now in New Zealand and have undergone something of a weather turnaround that is probably fitting given that we are now effectively on our way home.  For starters, the temperature is now around 30C lower than it was last weekend which is a massive ... Read more >


Sydney and Kincumber

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 25 Jan 2009 | Views [527] | Comments [1]

We have set aside the budget somewhat over the last week or so to make the most of Sydney and the surrounding area.  In fact, the whole principle of backpacking has been completely abandonned in favour of some civilised accommodation and decent food.... Read more >
