Six Months on the Road: Colombia and USA – San Francisco & Hawai’i

After countless night buses, flights, dorm beds, hikes, new friends and once-in-a-lifetime experiences our six month adventure throughout South America is over!  As I sit here, back in New Zealand, it’s hard to believe how many miles we’ve put behind us and just how much we’ve seen. How lucky are we? … but now we’re […]

Five Months on the Road in South America – Ecuador & Colombia

Our penultimate month in South America (that’s right, five down, only one to go!) was a welcome change from the backpacking we’ve been enjoying for the majority of our trip.  We returned to our Abu Dhabi roots and soaked in the more luxurious side of Ecuador – after all, nobody has the budget for five-star hotels […]

Four Months on the Road in South America – Peru & Ecuador

Laguna Churup Huaraz Peru

We’re a little over four months in and a have a little less than two months to go on this massive, diverse continent!  It’s hard to really comprehend just how much we’ve seen but at the same time, the more we speak to other travellers, the more we realise there is to see. With flights […]

As hard as it is to believe, it’s been a month since we left New Zealand for the start of our big South American adventure! On one hand, time has raced by but on the other, we’ve started to find our feet here, making new friends and experiencing all sorts of amazing things.  Unfortunately, we […]

2016 in Review – 26 Countries This Year Whilst Working Full-Time

Exploring Kiwis 2016 Wrap-Up

2016 – what a year!  When we moved to Abu Dhabi with plans to make the most of the travel opportunities, we never dreamed we’d get to travel quite as widely as we have whilst holding down full-time jobs.  Between us, we’ve explored 26 countries since the beginning of the year, starting off in Slovakia and ending […]

Where has the time gone? Another ‘Monthly’ Round-Up

How on earth is it June already?! The plan was to jot down what we’ve been up to over here each month but considering my last ‘monthly round-up’ was posted at the beginning of March, I think it’s fair to say I’ve been pretty unsuccessful in doing so! The past three months have been a […]
