Merry Christmas!

This is our first post from New Zealand and our last post of 2015. What a year it’s been! Our adventure began in November with a few weeks in Europe. We then flew to Auckland, purchased a car within 48 hours, and proceeded to drive south, camping along the way and enjoying the beautiful countryside for about 4 weeks. After reaching the southern tip of the north island, a 3 1/2 hour ferry took us across the Cook Straight to the South Island. Aside from a few photographs from Germany and Norway, this post is mainly snapshots of our travels in New Zealand so far. Whether we were trail running through the jungle, climbing a mountain, rowing across a lake, exploring a vineyard, jogging in a rain forest, or surfing the rugged coast, these are the moments we’ve been able to capture. Happy new year!



We’ve just finished up an action packed 3 weeks in beautiful Laos. In this short amount of time we explored the country from south to north. We started in 4000 islands on the Mekong Delta, headed to Pakse to embark on a 3 day motorbike tour of the Bolaven Plateau, traveled 20 hours to explore the famous 8km Konglor Cave, spent a few nights in Vientane, the capital city, tubed in Vang Vieng, and finished in Luang Prabang, a Unesco World Heritage site. Lots of caves, waterfalls, and butterflies along the way! We had the pleasure of traveling with a great group of new friends, most of whom we met on our first night in Laos, but one who we became close with while in Cambodia. This made our adventure even more special! After a 24 hour bus ride we are back in Thailand to explore the north. More to come!


Wow! What an amazing time we’ve had in Cambodia. Such a good time that we’ve overstayed our visa and will be receiving fines at the border tomorrow as we cross over in to Laos. We spent the majority of our trip in the south and islands, as we made some really amazing friends and ended up living and working in Otres Beach, Sihanoukville. It was the people, both travelers and native Cambodians that really made our trip so unforgettable. Next stop Laos!

Farming in Vietnam

After two blissful weeks in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, we moved north to the Van Ho District, which in Vietnamese translates to “Sea of Clouds.” Our first week we truly understood its meaning, as we spent freezing cold days in the clouds, while they rested on the mountain tops. During these weeks we worked directly with 30 employees of the farm and 8 other volunteers, tilling soil, irrigating, and converting mountain land into usable farm land. We were fed delicious traditional Vietnamese food every meal, and were constantly invited over to locals homes in the village. During our time in Van Ho we really got to experience how warm and hospitable Vietnamese people are and are so very thankful for the amazing experiences we shared with our new friends. What an unforgettable two weeks! We’ve since arrived in Cambodia and will post our next adventures soon! XO


We’ve spent the last two weeks in Vietnam, traveling from the south, Ho Chi Minh City, to the north, Hanoi! We love Hanoi and would love to call it home! In 7 hours we embark on a journey north to Son La Provence, where we will be working on an organic herbal medicine farm! Here are some moments we captured on our journey through Vietnam! MORE TO COME!



Our first Blog! Unfortunately our brand new digital camera has been misplaced/stolen and the only photos we have to date are from our phones. Here are just a few pictures representing our time in Thailand! We started the month in Bangkok and traveled south to island hop from Phuket to Koh Phi Phi, and then on to Koh Lanta. Along the way we boated out to smaller islands off of Koh Phi Phi and then made our way back up to Bangkok via Krabi. Our favorite food by far was on Koh Lanta. It was spicy and fresh, as they have so much farmland. We have been amazed at how different Bangkok is from Southern Thailand and when we return to the area in a couple of months we are excited to explore the north as well! That is all for now! So much love!
