Kopi Luwak – The S**ttest coffee in Indonesia

We were walking around the streets of Yogyjakarta, having just left the water temple when we noticed a cage with a furry animal in it…on closer inspection it looked like a cross between a ferret and lemur. Scratching my head as to what it was and why it was in a tiny, barely double the…

Travel Kyoto – Japan’s Jewel

We could not visit Japan and not take the world famous Shinkansen. The bullet train (JR Tōkaidō Shinkansen line from Shin-Osaka station) reaches up to 200mph and had us in Kyoto in 15mins from with an unreserved seat (a reserved seat costs twice as much), you can just see a blur of rooftops and cherry…

Travel Brazil – City of God & Guns

I flew over to the City of God at the best possible time, The Carnival. Because of the time of year they airlines kindly bump up the prices to fly into Rio de Janeiro so I flew into Sao Paolo and spent a night there beside the famous graffiti ‘Pichacao‘ before flying into Rio. After…

We jumped into a taxi…

Should we have imaginary lines on maps? Travel pains – Country Borders

We have been travelling for a while now, collected many stamps on our passports and had a look at employment and living opportunities in many different countries. It got me thinking the same thought I have pondered many a time…and not just because of the infamous line in the late John Lennon’s Imagine…. What if…

Travel Indonesia – Komodo Island

Komodo Island is the only island (with the exception of its neighbouring Rinca) on the planet where you can walk amongst these dinosaurs remnants in the wild. And it did not disappoint…. We flew into Flores Island, Labuan Bajo, (with NAM Air) a relatively small island between East Java and Timor Leste. Stepping of the…

Travel Indonesia – Spandau Bali Part 1

We finally made it to the most popular of Indonesian destinations. Flying into Bali we were glad to be heading to a more relaxed area which is predominately Hindu’s. Landing in Denpasar our first stop was Ubud, which is about an hours drive North of the Island, we used our GO app yet again and…
