Indonesia is the world’s largest island country with an estimated population of over 261 million! Over 5 weeks, our goal was to visit the best known of the islands including Java, Bali, Flores and Sumatra.
Both firmly country folk not city lovers, however, arriving from Thailand we looked forward to the first world comforts we felt Singapore had to offer.
Thailand is a victim of its own virtue’s as tourists have invaded, but if you put in the effort then Thailand is one of our favourite places in the world.
Our favourite moments from all our travels and adventures around the world.
Campervan Adventure up Australia’s East Coast over 3 months. Taking in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns and Darwin.
Packing our backpacks to travel the world was a tricky affair. We knew we could be away for over a year, would be travelling across many borders and exploring climates from the Tropics to the Antarctic. Each item we packed required careful consideration. We’re rather pleased with our choices so decided to write this ‘How-to Guide’ to answer the question we get asked the most. “What did you pack to travel the world?” We intend to refer to this list ourselves for future adventures.
New Zealand’s South Island is such a beautiful place with its colossal landscapes & sense of adventure. We had one month to explore these beautiful islands.
New Zealand at last, hurrah, we’re going to see the home of the Hobbits, bizarre wildlife, friendly people and epic landscapes! We had high hopes that New Zealand would be a breath of fresh air and familiarity for the next leg of our trip…
Ever since I was born, myself and my dad have shared a Birthday. What better way to celebrate his 60th than an adventure around Bolivia and Peru, South America.
Being in Peru, Machu Picchu was not a sight we were going to miss. The trip also happened to coincide with a couple of Aldridge birthdays! Michael and his dad both share a birthday and with Malcolm visiting us for his 60th, the day had to be a memorable one! What’s more memorable than checking off another ‘Wonder of the World’ eh?!
