Deserts & Desserts- The Islamic Republic of Iran

IRAN | Wednesday, 1 Oct 2014 | Views [500]

It was around 8pm when we got off the bus in Khoor, a small town a few hours north of Yazd- the desert city in Central Iran with an old city centre still made of mud bricks. From there we were met by a taxi driver from the tiny oasis town (max population ... Read more >

Mongolia by bus

MONGOLIA | Saturday, 12 Jul 2014 | Views [361]

We took a bus from Ulaanbaatar to Moron- a town presumably named after the people who catch the bus there. The bus reportedly takes between 15 and 30 hours, that's Mongolian consistency for you. We arrived at 1pm to buy tickets, only to be told the 2pm ... Read more >

Slovakia: skiing and eating (mostly the latter)

SLOVAKIA | Friday, 8 Feb 2013 | Views [282]

We arrived in Bratislava (the first word I can roll my R's in so I walked around town saying it repeatedly) very early one morning and headed to the hostel to dump our bags before the sun came up. We'd caught the overnight train from Berlin and a guy ... Read more >

Behaving in Berlin

GERMANY | Friday, 8 Feb 2013 | Views [323]

 Donald and I got to Berlin on Monday night after catching two buses, a ferry, two S bahns and a U bahn. Again, people may have doubted our ability to get there (rightfully so) but it only took us a few minutes of being lost before I managed to ... Read more >

Danish Dames

DENMARK | Thursday, 31 Jan 2013 | Views [535]

I know it's been a while since the last entry, sorry mum.  Donald and I set off from Frankfurt to Copenhagen a couple of weeks ago. Lenny headed to his Grandma's place south of Munich and left us to our own devices. If anyone thought that could ... Read more >

Czech It Out

CZECH REPUBLIC | Wednesday, 16 Jan 2013 | Views [264]

Prague!  I will try to keep the puns in Czech (ok sorry, no more). Prague is magical. A medieval city with a castle, beautiful buildings, lots of bridges and ridiculously cheap beer, what more could a girl want? It has been around ... Read more >

Oh dear lord, it's cold!

GERMANY | Saturday, 12 Jan 2013 | Views [369] | Comments [2]

Alright folks, it's blog time again! Basically, I'm just too lazy to email everyone so here you go! Fair warning: I dont go back and proof read anything so it's just in the order that it pops into my head.   I'm in Europe! Cold, cold ... Read more >

Falls, Flores and Fruitshakes

GUATEMALA | Thursday, 12 Jan 2012 | Views [592]

We took a little speed boat from Belize to Southern Guatemala on New Years Eve. It was ridiculously bumpy and I spilt a cup of soup on the man sitting next to me, I kept apologising and he kept saying it was ok and calling me chica.  We arrived in Livingston ... Read more >

I can't Belize we're here!

BELIZE | Tuesday, 3 Jan 2012 | Views [699]

Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I didn't get to update on Belize because internet was super expensive and we were too busy having wonderful adventures. We caught a bus from Tulum in Mexico to Belize City on December 23rd and have just ... Read more >

Our last few days in the land of the taco

MEXICO | Saturday, 24 Dec 2011 | Views [562]

It's now our last night in Mexico. So many tacos in the last 3 weeks. So many mouth burning, delicious tacos! After two nights in Cancún with the most beautiful, clear blue water I've ever seen, we headed to Playa del Carmen. Oh my dear god. It was ... Read more >

Flamingoes, Frenchies & Field Trips

MEXICO | Monday, 19 Dec 2011 | Views [608]

Hola amigos! It's been a while since the last update because we have been too busy doing everything! We're now in Cancun, but I'll get to that later. Firstly, I think it needs to be said that Australians (and I'm talking incredibly generally here) are ... Read more >

Meet Beardy

MEXICO | Tuesday, 13 Dec 2011 | Views [554]

I would like to introduce everyone to Beardy. Jeff's beard has decided to tag along for a little while. And is apparently a seperate entity to Jeff. When I asked Jeff what he did on the flight to LA, his response was "grew a beard". He also ... Read more >

A little more Mexico city and 13 hours on a bus

MEXICO | Wednesday, 7 Dec 2011 | Views [538]

    Forgive any bad spelling, puncuation and excessive letters or spaces, I'm writing this from a pretty dodgy internet cafe where the keyboard hates me (and is  Spanish so lighten up) in San Cristobal. Taking a laptop with you is incredibly convienient.... Read more >

Mmmmmmmexico City!

MEXICO | Sunday, 4 Dec 2011 | Views [539]

Mexico!! I'll try to start from the beginning. The plane ride that is. Peta and lack of sleep and food is not a good Peta. Because we had to get up at 3:30am to get to the airport and whatnot, we only got to have about .7 of a breakfast. We'd gotten ... Read more >

Buses, Blackouts & Boobies

USA | Saturday, 3 Dec 2011 | Views [602]

Here we go again, Los Angeles. Have I mentioned how much I love this place? Because I do. And it's not just the food stalls which have a normal price and then the deepfried price for their foods like pizza and oreos. Coming into the middle of winter ... Read more >

Plane, Plans & Pretty People

USA | Tuesday, 29 Nov 2011 | Views [596]

Hi Folks, That's right, we're blogging. And I'm going to skip all the formal stuff and just tell you what we did today, probably in no particular order, because I'm tired. Jeff and Peta are in LA!! The city of beautiful people. Firstly, it's amazing ... Read more >
