Chile

In total we spent about 3 weeks in Chile, more or less split in three sections. A third in cities, a third in the desert, and a third in Patagonia. Unfortunately we didn’t visit the cities at the best time, as they were protesting daily (and still are). This greatly limited our ability to enjoy…

Colombia

Colombia is such a beautiful country! We are so happy it made the cut on our list as, truth be told, the perception of this country being so bad, we weren’t sure it was a good idea to head there. Luckily, many of our friends had been, giving us the confidence to go ourselves. Colombia…

Mexico

We have really enjoyed our time in Mexico. We haven’t felt unsafe once. If anything, some places in the US were dodgier. Traveling there during the wet season though meant that the weather was ridiculously humid, and that mosquitoes were everywhere. We enjoyed our time there nonetheless; our highlight was Bacalar, a magnificent place. Something…

100 days on the road

How do we feel after 100 days of travelling? 100 days away from our baby cat, comfortable bed and fully equipped kitchen? Well we feel like it’s going way too quickly! We can’t believe it’s been 100 days already. Our wedding day now seems so far away. Life on the road is still amazing though,…

Canada

We have really enjoyed our time in Canada. From the very French East Coast, to the breathtaking Rockies and all the way to the West Coast, we have had some great times over the past 3 weeks. Budget The total budget we had forecasted for 3 weeks was $5,744. We ended up spending $5,727 –…

Iceland

We’ve said it before, but Iceland was a real highlight. The landscapes were so beautiful, so different to what we’re used to seeing, and so different from each other even within the country. We also loved the fact it was still kind of quiet. There are tourists (weirdly a lot of French), but it’s not…

Portugal

We had the best time in Portugal and really enjoyed this country. Lisbon and Porto were amazing, and it was good to get to see different little towns along the way between the 2 cities. In terms of food, we tried all of the local delicacies we were looking for, apart from the tripes in…

Greece

We had so much fun in Greece and thoroughly enjoyed each day. It was a perfect mix of island hoping on the sailing boat, cultural sightseeing in Athens, and relaxed island life in Milos. Budget We gave ourselves an approximate $1,800 budget for this leg (Athens & Milos), and ended up spending $1,644. Breakdown as…

Italy

Budget After consulting a few websites that provide spending guides, we gave ourselves a rough budget of $200 a day for the 19 days in Italy. This included accommodation, which thankfully we booked well in advance. This was particularly important for the 3 nights on the Amalfi Coast, where accommodation sells out months and months…
