Docking up in the Bahamas

Upon waking we realised we was docked in Nassau. This was our first breakfast on board and we was disappointed by the buffet, everything was cold so tomorrow we will go for the sit down option, the only good part was the view of the Bahamas Atlantis Hotel from the window. It’s strange to be here as we almost booked Atlantis years ago when our Mexico holiday was canceled because of the swine flu ou [...]

Cruising off to the sunset

After way too much walking this morning we finally arrived at Miami's port for our first ever cruise! Upon arrival we was told our itinerary had changed and we would only be going to one destination in The Bahamas and not the two we had booked, “Hurricane Matthew” was banded around a bit. I was pretty pissed off and tried to complain but was told no one here deals with customer issues and I would [...]

Captain Hook and his shocking past

This morning we met with our Swiss friends from yesterday to have a tour of Captain Hook's village and coffee plantation. Thanks to our amazing tour from Mr Vieng yesterday, we were already coffee experts so it was a little hard to keep interested at first. However once we moved on it turned in to one of the most insightful experiences of our travels. Village life The village that Captain Hook is [...]

Third world travel at its finest

The dreaded day had arrived, the journey from Siem Reap to 4000 Islands in Laos. Deep breath! The tuk tuk arrived bang on time, wait, a tuk tuk? I hope we are not travelling 100’s of kilometre’s by tuk tuk. Pulling up at a hotel / travel agency we saw a mini bus and loads of tourist waiting to leave. Fortunately we were first to get on the bus and had pick of the seats, I chose the front row as it [...]

The Ko Chang TT

Today is the day, the day we get out from under the bed covers and see what Ko Chang really have to offer. Why today I heard you ask? Well for the first time since we arrived the sun is shining and there is hardly a cloud in the sky. The day turned out to be fabulous, great for photographing and exploring the island. Our first stop was to the Kai Bae point where there was a really nice TRAT sign t [...]

Turtle power

Our first dive in the Philippines was turning out to be a very expensive one. The two “must do” dive site in the Philippines are Malapascua island and Apo Island. Malapascua is famous for seeing large sea life such as the Whale Shark and Mantra Ray, where as Apo is the Turtle Capital. Honestly we wanted to go to Malapascua but the logistics of getting up there seemed very difficult with everything [...]

Diving in Tulamben

There is a very small coastal town on the east coast of Bali that not many people have heard of called Tulamben. We were told about Tulamben when diving on the Great Barrier Reef with a German diving instructor. It turns out this tiny little village is home to one of the best wreck dives in the world! The USAT Liberty The USAT Liberty was a US Army cargo ship that was just off the coast of Bali in [...]

A Koala is not a bear!

Reluctantly we left the Gold Coast this morning and headed north to Brisbane to visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Lone Pine was the first, and is still the largest Koala sanctuary in Australia. Back in the early 20th century Koalas were hunted for their fur and it was not uncommon for a hunting party to kill 1300 Koalas in a single day. Eventually, due to public uproar, they were classified as [...]
