The inner city of Izmir is one I would suggest if you are looking for a place to stop over for a night, or you are intending to head to Ephesus (which is a large historical site of ancient ruins. As Rik said – “Why would we want to see the ruined stuff, where is all the […]
Although we still intended to see more of Turkey, we decided to make a small detour to Kos Island in Greece, as it was only a one hour ferry ride away, costing just 16 euro! Interestingly i got pulled up at the passport control as they noticed I had a north Cyprus stamp in my […]
Our stay in Bodrum was short, but very sweet! Notorious for being a holiday destination for the rich and famous of Turkey, we checked ourselves into the only hostel in the area, Bodrum Backpackers. The hostel had its own resident DJ, and we were all greeted by ‘Huni’ the beer bong upon arrival! The resident […]
We loved Antalya, and perhaps could have stayed at least a few days longer but we had a bus to catch to Pamukkale! There were a few options to get into this rather isolated city, and we chose to catch a ‘Metro Bus’. Well let me tell you that was one of the best choices […]
We arrived in Antalya, Turkey not really knowing what to expect. I had heard many good things about Turkey and knew that I loved Turkish food but not alot else other than tales of Gallipoli. Kaelici, the old town in Antalya where we stayed is one of my favourite destinations I have been to date. […]
I flew with the budget of all budget operators, Ryan Air to Paphos in Cyprus. For anyone that hasn’t had the pleasure, you can generally get quite a cheap ticket, but you should factor in the cost of getting to the airports that Ryan Air typically fly from – as they are often far out […]
Over the weeks before 2 July, I said goodbye to some of my favourite humans Beau, Sarah and Dad in Melbourne, my awesome flatties, my lovely work friends, and some of my oldest and bestest friends from the Gold Coast and my dear Mum.
I wrote this article in two parts whilst on a bus traveling in Montenegro. The topic was inspired by a conversation i had with an old work colleague and good friend Luke! Whilst i had a fairly good idea of what i wanted to write about, it was only until we were walking along the esplanade […]
Against all odds, i somehow managed to make my flight. I told myself to remember that sometimes things do go your way, as at one stage i had actually given up trying to make this flight! With temperatures at about 40 degrees, the whole train system shut down right as i was standing at the platform. […]
After a stop over at the Dominican Republic as well as Frankfurt, I arrived at 8:15am exhausted! I have four nights here, and am staying with my cousin Michelle! I can’t even remember the last time that i saw her, and now she is married with a one year old son called Luke!
Another chicken bus ride and i arrived in David, where i hoped to find a coach to take me to Panama City. At this stage, i was extremely lucky to find another guy from Brisbane whom was trying to do the same thing as me. In fact, we had even identified the same hostel to […]
After a quick squiz on the internet I managed to pick one of the more random hostels i have stayed at. I arrived in Boquete after a four hour bus trip, jumped into a taxi, and told him to take me to Hostel Spanish By The River. It should have been a sign when he […]
I was a bit worried about crossing the border into Panama on my own, as my Spanish isn’t great but everything worked out fine! You can’t enter Panama unless you have an exit flight booked. Luckily, I had printed out my flight details from Panama City to Paris, so they were happy with that! Bocas […]
The choice to visit Puerto Viejo turned out to be a good one, but the public bus trip there was not! Unfortunately the normal route was closed due to a mud slide, which meant our four hour journey turned into about eight! We only found out about the road closure at the bus terminal, and […]
