Montañita, Ecuador and our yearly dose of hippie

After a solid two weeks of doing nothing but playing on the beach, getting caught up on blogs/ pictures and generally living a slow, boring life (Coming soon: Sean’s post over Santa Marianita) we decided it was time to hit the road again. Next up was Montañita, a huge surfing/hippie hangout on the coast of […]

Christmas – FIJI style!

  Everyone warns us against “Island time”. “Island time” is the don’t worry about time, cause no one else does philosophy. Don’t get caught up in what time you were supposed to do something because inevitably its gonna change. Supposed to leave at 9? you can guarantee that’s gonna be more like 11 by the time […]

New Zealand – One Week in the North Island

Auckland We arrived in Auckland at 1:00am, feeling exhausted, wondering where we would be spending the night. We abhorred the idea of paying $100 for a room and another$ 40 for a taxi (to and from the airport) for a couple hours of sleep. So we set out trying to find a spot to sleep, unfortunately […]

Gili Trawangan – The pictureless post

Unfortunately, Brittany’s awesome canon powershot took the long sleep while in Candi Dasa, so our normal go to carry around camera was done for.

Candi Dasa – A vacation from our Vacation

Backpacking can begin to wear on you after a while. Always having to barter, always looking for a better deal, always staying at someplace less than optimal (I mean, when have you ever considered a toilet seat a luxury? The answer is after the first time you place your ass directly on the bowl, for […]

Kuta – the Bangkok of Bali

An $8 cab ride brought us from the airport through streets choked with traffic to our destination Legian, Kuta in Bali. To see Kuta by daylight is to turn the lights on in a strip club, it’s an unfairness that removes the mystique and intrigue from the place. During the day, Kuta is hot, it’s […]
