Our Complete Guide to Kampot, the Hidden Gem of Cambodia

When we left Australia to travel full-time, we knew we’d be spending Christmas and New Years Eve overseas. After mapping out a rough itinerary for the first couple of months, we worked out that we’d be spending the end of the year in Cambodia. Knowing that we started looking for a town in Cambodia where […]

Two Amazing Community-Based Tours in Siem Reap

Most people visiting Siem Reap spend the bulk of their time exploring the temples of Angkor. The Archaeological complex is incredible and there are so many temples that it takes a few days to work your way around them. But Siem Reap is not just about Angkor Wat. There are some fantastic areas to explore […]

Our Bear Care Tour at the Free the Bears Sanctuary, Phnom Penh

After finding out about the Free the Bears Sanctuary a few years ago, I knew I wanted to see the sanctuary when we eventually visited Cambodia. While in Luang Prabang in Laos, we enjoyed visiting their smaller sanctuary there, at the foot of the Kuang Si Falls. When I checked their website, I discovered the […]

Happy New Year! We’ve just clocked over into 2019 and we’re still going strong. Since we started travelling full time in the middle of October last year, we’ve visited four countries in total.

Vang Vieng, to Love or to Hate?

I have to admit that after visiting Thailand, we had grown accustomed to the friendliness of the locals. On the other hand, in Laos, it was a totally different story. Smiling locals were actually hard to find. It’s not that they were deliberately rude, they just weren’t particularly friendly like the Thais. But this really […]

Is Luang Prabang Still Worth a Visit?

The small town of Luang Prabang is located in northern Laos and has one of the most beautiful settings in south-east Asia. Sandwiched between the Mekong and the Nam Khan River, Luang Prabang is oh so pretty and ever so romantic! This old French colonial town became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 and […]

Tesalate Beach Towel Review: Don’t Bring the Beach Home

As you may know, we love the beach and when you love the beach you need a good beach towel. As full-time travellers, we also need a towel that is compact and easy to lug around. Unfortunately, until now we didn’t really own one. The beach towels we had were light for sure but they […]

Checking in: Our review of Sara Resort, Koh Rong Sanloem

I’m not going to lie, we love tropical islands. The clear blue sea, white sand, palm trees, what’s not to love? During our trip to Cambodia, we made sure we visited Koh Rong Sanloem, an island just off the coast of Sihanoukville. We stayed four nights on this paradise island and quite frankly we wish […]

Taking the Slow Boat in Laos to Luang Prabang

A slow boat cruise down the mighty Mekong river was high on our list of things to do in Laos. In fact it was one of the most exciting experiences we had planned for the Southeast Asia leg of our trip. As we cruised slowly down the Mekong over two days before reaching Luang Prabang, […]
