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 …

Vietnam & Indonesia 2015, Indonesian Food

Ah dear, what can I say. I can’t admit I had a good time with Indonesian food. Takeshi and I have been very fortunate to encounter some great street food on our travels but I have to say that the street food we tried out in Indonesia was by far the worst. On that note, …
