Well our overnight train from BudaPest to Krakow was a success! Sort of… Mum was terrified of the gypsies, so every time she needed the washroom she would wake me up. Before you say, ‘what gypsies??,’ let me tell you what happened. We checked into our little bunker and the conductor comes around to check … More Krakow pt. One
Ok so we’ve left the AmaViola and Adventures by Disney. We’re now on the second leg of our journey! I planned the entire thing for the most part. Having consulted mum and dad on a few of our excursions, I was in charge of accommodations and transportation. We are starting off our journey still in … More Buda/Pest
Today I am waking up in Linz, Austria. An early start to the day means we’ve got plenty of things to see and do today! Of the options provided to us, we chose to discover the salt mine just outside of Salzburg followed by a lunch. The other option, for those who are Sound of … More ‘White Gold’ Digger
We leave Munich for Vilshofen to board the AmaViola. Adventures by Disney teamed up with AmaWaterways for their Danube River Cruise for the holidays. I was excited to get the day started as this would be the start of our holiday! The bus was full and it wasn’t long before our Adventure Guides had us … More Wilkommen!
Do you ever come back from one adventure and feel like you’ve come off a high? You’re back home and everything seems dull? You need to plan another trip and ASAP?!

I don’t know if you know this about me, but I am a HUGE fan of Steve Irwin! While growing up, I use to throw on Animal Planet and watch The Crocodile Hunter for hours. I just loved his sense of adventure and his passion for conserving wildlife. It is no surprise that my one … More Crikey! The Australia Zoo
My next stop on this Australian adventure took me to Airlie Beach. Chloe had booked us into one of the hostels on the main drag. We checked in and went to our rooms. I mean I’ve stayed in some pretty bad hostels before, but this one was pretty gross. If we hadn’t already gotten some … More Airlie Beach and Then Some
We’ve left Auckland, NZ for the Gold Coast in Australia. Chloe and I were meeting her friends Baz and Keil there to have a weekend of fun! I met Baz and Keil when they were in London back in 2012 while Chloe and I were living there. Baz is from Australia and Keil is from … More Low Key Gold Coast Vibes
We arrive in Auckland for a brief stay before heading back to Australia. The accommodation of choice in this city was AirBnb. We could have very well stayed in a hostel, but our AirBnb was in a very, very good location and the price wasn’t all that bad in comparison to a hostel. It was … More A quickie in Auckland
Leaving Matamata behind, we arrive in Rotorua. I was warned about this place smelling of sulphur. So bad they said, I would want to puke. Well…FYI, it’s not that bad at all. When getting off the bus I didn’t even notice a smell to be honest. We checked into our hostel, Rock Solid. They are … More Rotorua — What’s that smell?
