An Adventure To Argentina

The next leg of our multi sector was over to Buenos Aires in Argentina which was a new destination and country for me to tick off, and also marked my 50th country visited. How exciting?? We departed Rio de Janeiro at 16:05 and it was 3 hours and 19 minutes over to Ministro Pistarini International…

Relaxing Russia

I wasn’t overly looking forward to this trip as I’ve previously visited Moscow.

Stopping Off In Singapore

The last stop of our Balinese adventure was to Kuta and we made our way over to the makeshift boat terminal on the beach which was just absolutely packed out with tourists. I couldn’t believe how many people were pulling in and out of here each day. As we pulled back into Padang Bai from…

Going To Gili T

The final stop of our Indonesian adventure was to a different island of Gili Trawangan just east of Bali, and out of the three Gili Islands more known for being a party island. We left our beautiful accommodation in Ubud and drove over to Padang Bai where we would take a fast boat over to…
