After the Babinda Boulders we started making our way South along the coast towards Brisbane for New Year. Along the way our main objectives were to stop at waterholes and beaches as much as possible to cool off and enjoy a slow pace of life – a vast difference from missioning it through the outback…although … More Oz Campervan Adventure Part 9: Cairns to Brisbane
Our final drive through the outback and back to civilisation. We stopped at Kakadu National Park to enjoy an abundance of nature and historic graffiti. We enjoyed many of our very own Crocodile Dundee moments whilst going through the Never-Never. And thankfully made it out alive – just!
Following our days cruising from Melbourne to Adelaide along the Great Ocean Road we stopped in Adelaide for two nights. Here we would learn more about Aussie Culture – wine, art and possums.

Anything else was to be an added bonus. First stop though was the … More Non Stop Action in Chiang Mai

In preparation (mainly to save money instead of a hotel) for this we roughed ourselves up a bit by spending … More Bangkok – Where The Familiar And The Exotic Collide
We ♥️ Japan. It was an incredible 3 weeks on our around the world journey that we’ll never forget and cherish forever.
