Exploring Cambodia in a Week

Last February, we decided to visit Cambodia as part of our travel adventures, aside from a basic understanding of what has happened in there in the 80s, we didn’t know much about it or what to expect. We were lucky enough to have Vilmos Nevehaj, our good friend from Sauce Labs join us in this adventure and we had a blast!

Australia Travels: NYE in Sydney, Fraser Island, and Whitsundays boat trip

After our intense and adventurous time through New Zealand, our travels took us to Sydney to see the world renowned fireworks over the bay bridge on New Year’s Eve and Opera House. With only 3 weeks to get through Australia before heading over to a longer and more relaxed time in Southeast Asia, we decided to optimize for getting some sun and seeing the white beaches that Australia is well known for.

With that in mind, we planned two must-do tours that many of our friends had recommended: Fraser Island and the Whitsundays islands. Continue reading “Australia Travels: NYE in Sydney, Fraser Island, and Whitsundays boat trip”

South Island, NZ Highlights (Pt. 3)

Wrapping up our adventures in the north island of New Zealand, we set off to Wellington, the spot where you cross by ferry to the south island. There, we parted ways with a big group of our newly-made friends. We were a little sad and a little excited; most long-term travelers get used to parting ways with new friends, who you’re likely to never see again, by hugging and smiling as you appreciate the special time and memories you shared.

These were our favorite stops in the south island:

North Island, NZ Highlights (Pt. 1)

As we mentioned in our last blog post, to get around New Zealand, we decided to go with Stray, a hop on / hop off “tour” bus. After doing some price comparisons with renting a car or camper van, Stray, at about $500 USD each for 3 weeks of travel, turned out to be the most cost-effective way to see both islands. (Worth noting: this is an even better deal if you have more time, as the Stray pass is valid for 12 months, you can hop off and stay in a spot for as long as you’d like, and you can repeat the loops as often as you’d like).

New Zealand Adventures

Happy New Year, everyone! We are writing from Sydney, Australia right now. We came over to celebrate this special day with the rest of the world, but more on that in a future post.

A month ago, we left Argentina to spend 4 weeks exploring New Zealand, a country (and whole region) we had never set foot on before. At first glance, 4 weeks seems like a long time, but as we started discovering what was available in that vastly adventurous country, we realized it was going to be close to impossible. With that in mind, we flew into Auckland in a relaxed mood, expecting to make the best out of our time without rushing around or stressing out about our lack of time. What we managed to see, we would enjoy. What we didn’t manage to see would be left for a later adventure.
