Japan 2016, A Day in Tokyo

Back in Japan! We flew into Tokyo and had a very short overnight stay in the city before heading to Kyoto via the bullet train the next day. As we landed early in the morning we had a bit of time to roam around and check out a few things. We walked around the Asakusa …

Fiji 2016, Last Day in Fiji

Last day in Fiji before flying home! Another quiet day, we caught the local bus from our accommodation and headed into town to see if we could find some gifts. The open air bus was a nice ride and for a Fijian dollar a very cheap way to also get to the airport. Would highly …

Fiji 2016, Final day in the Yasawas

Last day in the Yasawa Islands! Rather sad to go as it had only been a short stay, and there would be a bit of a transit to get back to Nadi. We caught the shuttle ferry out of the island around 12pm and eventually got back late at night – it was a long …

Fiji 2016, Relaxing in the Yasawa Islands

A full day in Fiji relaxing and it was an early start to the day to go snorkeling with Manta Rays. An amazing experience (no photos from me though as I don’t have a waterproof camera). The rest of the day was super quiet, relaxing, swimming and watching a bit of beach volleyball.

Fiji 2016, Cruising to the Yasawa Islands

Second day in Fiji and it was time to start heading to the Yasawa Islands. After a 3 hour boat ride we were at our hotel for the next few days, and I have to admit it was rather cute! Similar to the accommodation we stayed in at Wilpena Pound in the Flinders Ranges, it …

Fiji 2016, Arriving in Nadi

A short trip to Fiji, and after flying from Sydney to the Gold Coast into Nadi, Fiji we managed to arrive just in time to see the sunset from the beach next to our accommodation. Not a bad start to the trip!

Bali 2016, Uluwatu Temple

Last day in Bali! We had a very last minute decision to visit Uluwatu Temple which was great. The views from the cliffs were lovely and it made for a nice day to wander around before being our trek to the airport and to head home.

Bali 2016, Monkeying around in Monkey Park

A few quick photos from our extremely short visit to Bali. Today was spent on a day tour around Ubud, visiting the Monkey Park (which was rather fun), and then heading out to the tea terraces before wandering around a bit and heading back to our accommodation. The Monkey Park was probably the highlight of …

Last day in the Flinders Ranges

Last day in the Flinders Ranges, and a long drive ahead of us back to Adelaide. The last stop of the day (after Rawnsleys’ Lookout) was Arkaroo Rock, a significant Adnyamathanha painting site depicting aspects of the dreaming for Wilpena Pound. I don’t think I had seen an Aboriginal rock art before other than when …
