Christmas in the Philippines

It was our first white Christmas, without any snow, but sand! We jetsetted to Boracay, Philippines for a week of relaxing, boozing, and fun. Boracay is the Koh Phangan (minus the buckets of liquor!) of the Philippines, where foreigner travelers come to party all night long. Boracay’s claim to fame is it’s 4km stretch of white beach. It ranks in many top travel magazines... Read More

After a few days on the beautiful white beach in Boracay (mobbed with travelers!), we wanted a few days of quiet and leave the mobs of tourists to their booming music. We literally went on google maps, zoomed in on Boracay and looked for the next closest island to run away too. To the north of Boracay there is a sleepy little island, that no pokes at and is virtually untouched by... Read More

We decided the best way to tackle Bali was by motorbike, giving us complete freedom & ease to move around. Bali is more expensive than other South... Read More

Travel isn’t always so fun loving and carefree. Between all of the beautiful places you visit and smiling faces you meet there are countless hours spent on planes, trains, buses, horrific bathroom experiences, and situations that make you think, “Is traveling worth it?”, “Maybe it’s time to go home?” But than the next day we’ll meet some... Read More

Munduk_bali_tour

After our horrific experience with the mountain mafia at Mt. Batur we both really needed to be picked up by the Balinese and shown that ‘hey, that was just some crazy town– but the rest of us are pretty great!’ The town of Munduk accompanied with Kadek the owner of the guesthouse we stayed at did just that for us, and some. 100% if you go to Munduk you’ve... Read More

Mt. Batur, Bali: The Truth About a Mafia-Run Tourist Town

Mt. Batur_Bali_Volcano

The last few years of travel have seen us deal with many situations… let’s see:  I’ve shut down a guesthouse after they stole $100 from my bag. Rhys interrogated an Indian guy and then ripped through his home searching for his stolen phone. We’ve dealt with gut-wrenching Indian hospital visits. But we’ve NEVER had to deal with a town run mafia. ADVICE:... Read More
