Bodrum, Turkey

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 […]

Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

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 […]
