South East Asia
The aim was to travel through South East Asia for five weeks, then jump over to Europe for the remainder of the year. We left Australia and headed straight for Thailand. From here it was over to Cambodia, then Vietnam and Laos, before returning to Thailand to fly to London.
An 11-day adventure through Southeast Asia's newest country, Timor-Leste (East Timor). From hiking to beaches to stunning sunrises, I was surprised by how much I could achieve in the most untouristy country I had ever visited.
Eight days hiking the Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea, following in the footsteps of the Australian soldiers as they fought against the formidable Japanese Army during World War II.
What's it like to live in another country vastly different from your own? Here I have jotted down some of my thoughts of living overseas and provided some tips for anyone who is contemplating a move to Asia.
Our 11-day journey through Peninsula Malaysia. We started in the capital, Kuala Lumpur, before heading up to the hills of the Cameron Highlands. Next, it was over to foodie capital Penang, and lastly relaxing on the island of Langkawi.
Thailand & Cambodia
While stuck in Southeast Asia (thanks COVID-19), I decided to make the most of my time abroad and explore regions of Northern Thailand and Southern Cambodia that I hadn't seen before.
Six months, 16 countries and 2 bulging backpacks. This is the story of our incredible adventure exploring the other side of the world like gap year students, only that we were in our 30s and refused to sleep in dorm rooms.
Part two of our trip of a lifetime. Initially we stayed with family in England while we looked into our transport options. Finally we bit the bullet, bought a campervan and set off across the English Channel. There was no specific plan, no timelines or route to follow, just a general outline that chopped and changed along the way.
