Rio de Janeiro: Carnaval!

[Recapping our trip, 294 days in] Early on Friday, February 24, 2017, we flew from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We flew into Rio just in time for their annual Carnaval celebration, and we were really excited to experience it. (Side note: Flights were insanely expensive, and much more than we had […]

Argentina and Uruguay

[Recapping our trip, 288 days in] On February 9, 2017, we wrapped up our incredible time in Easter Island and headed back to the mainland continent.

Easter Island!

On Sunday, February 5, 2017, we fulfilled our biggest longshot goal (by a mile) and landed on Easter Island. Everything about it was incredible, and we’ll break down everything it took to get us there, as well as try to describe what it was like during their annual Tapati Festival. Where is Easter Island and […]

Santiago, Chile

On February 1, 2017, we finally took our last intercontinental flight, as we flew on LATAM 800 from Auckland to Santiago. LATAM is a member of the Oneworld airline alliance, meaning we could continue using the American Airlines miles we used to get into and around Australia in style. With some foresight, we made sure […]

New Zealand: North Island

[Recapping our trip, 265 days in] On Monday, January 23, 2017, we traded in our New Zealand rental car for a Spaceship. If that sentence caught you a little off-guard, then perhaps I should explain that when I say we drove a “Spaceship” around New Zealand, I mean one of these fun little vans. With […]

New Zealand: South Island

[Recapping our trip, 256 days in] After a quick overnight flight from Adelaide (via Melbourne), we arrived in Christchurch, New Zealand on Sunday, January 14, 2017! This was the first time for either of us to visit New Zealand, and we couldn’t wait. We have plenty of friends who have visited, and not a single one […]

Uluru, Australia (and Darwin and Adelaide)

[Recapping our trip, 242 days in] After an incredible New Years celebration in Sydney, we headed north on New Years Day to Darwin, Australia. We were excited to get out of the major cities for a little while; Darwin is a small town on the northern coast of Australia, near a pair of major national […]

Melbourne and Sydney, Australia

[Recapping our trip, 234 days in] Happy New Year! On Monday, December 26, 2016, we arrived in Melbourne, Australia. It was our first time since Europe being in a country where English was the official language of a country, and we used the opportunity to relax and catch a breather from all the wonderful exhausting […]

Delhi and Agra, India

[Recapping our trip, 227 days in] Thursday, December 22, we headed from Nepal to India. We only had a couple days in India, primarily to catch our (incredible world-class) flight to Australia. Be sure to read all about it if you haven’t already! When we arrived in Delhi, we learned for the first time about […]

Kathmandu and Pokhara, Nepal

[Recapping our trip, 224 days in.] From Myanmar, we treated ourselves to a rest week in Bangkok, where we were able to find a nice one-week apartment rental at a dirt cheap price. The rest was helpful after so much time spent being tourists so quickly in Myanmar, and on Thursday, December 15, we headed off to […]
