Recap

Santiago, Chile

On February 1, 2017, we finally took our last intercontinental flight, as we flew on LATAM 800 from Auckland to Santiago. LATAM is a member of the Oneworld airline alliance, meaning we could continue using the American Airlines miles we used to get into and around Australia in style. With some foresight, we made sure […]

New Zealand: North Island

[Recapping our trip, 265 days in] On Monday, January 23, 2017, we traded in our New Zealand rental car for a Spaceship. If that sentence caught you a little off-guard, then perhaps I should explain that when I say we drove a “Spaceship” around New Zealand, I mean one of these fun little vans. With […]

New Zealand: South Island

[Recapping our trip, 256 days in] After a quick overnight flight from Adelaide (via Melbourne), we arrived in Christchurch, New Zealand on Sunday, January 14, 2017! This was the first time for either of us to visit New Zealand, and we couldn’t wait. We have plenty of friends who have visited, and not a single one […]

Uluru, Australia (and Darwin and Adelaide)

[Recapping our trip, 242 days in] After an incredible New Years celebration in Sydney, we headed north on New Years Day to Darwin, Australia. We were excited to get out of the major cities for a little while; Darwin is a small town on the northern coast of Australia, near a pair of major national […]

Melbourne and Sydney, Australia

[Recapping our trip, 234 days in] Happy New Year! On Monday, December 26, 2016, we arrived in Melbourne, Australia. It was our first time since Europe being in a country where English was the official language of a country, and we used the opportunity to relax and catch a breather from all the wonderful exhausting […]

Delhi and Agra, India

[Recapping our trip, 227 days in] Thursday, December 22, we headed from Nepal to India. We only had a couple days in India, primarily to catch our (incredible world-class) flight to Australia. Be sure to read all about it if you haven’t already! When we arrived in Delhi, we learned for the first time about […]

Kathmandu and Pokhara, Nepal

[Recapping our trip, 224 days in.] From Myanmar, we treated ourselves to a rest week in Bangkok, where we were able to find a nice one-week apartment rental at a dirt cheap price. The rest was helpful after so much time spent being tourists so quickly in Myanmar, and on Thursday, December 15, we headed off to […]

Yangon and Bagan, Myanmar

[Recapping our trip, 210 days in] Friday, December 2, we headed west from the Philippines, bound for Yangon, Myanmar. (If you’re shaky on your geography, note that it’s sometimes called Burma, with different shades of political meaning depending on the name you use. The language and people are pretty universally called Burmese, however.) Myanmar was […]

Hong Kong and Manila

[Recapping our trip, 204 days in] After such a great visit with Emma in Ho Chi Minh, we took a short flight on Friday, November 25 to Hong Kong. Our visit to Hong Kong had the special honor of being the last planned Pride celebration of all our year of travel, and we were looking […]

Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, Cambodia

[Recapping our trip, 192 days in] On Saturday, November 12, we headed out bright and early from Chiang Mai, bound for Siem Reap, Cambodia. Even though these cities are the two largest cities in Cambodia, there’s definitely a rural feel to them. Cambodia was the least developed of the countries we visited up to this point, and […]
