Viva Havana – 10 Things You Need To Know When Visiting Cuba

Cuba is a unique place, unlike any other place I have ever traveled to.

It’s this …

How to Travel from Bangkok to Koh Phangan by Bus

I’ve been in Thailand for a Month or so and haven’t left Bangkok, so was looking forward to a trip away for a bit.  Being new years the obvious choice was part island Koh Phangan, in Surat Thani in the south of Thailand.

I’ve previously done some backstage work for New Zealand’s biggest new years party …

Salzburg, Austria

Liam’s girlfriend Lauren let us know about the awesome deal for transport out here when travelling in groups – the “Bayern Ticket“, which allows you pretty much unlimited public transport within Bavaria and surrounding areas for …

Our train was great …

Mostar, Bosnia

Yesterday we’d had enough of Dubrovnik, which I found a bit of a tourist trap (everything seemed to be aimed at either the geriatric tourist crowd, or the drunk 18 year old contiki/topdeck/sail croatia kids).  The place on everyones lips for the next suggested stop was Mostar, Bosnia – somewhere which I had never heard …

Rijeka to Dubrovnik by Boat

After 3 days at Anjas it was time to get on the Ferry and make my way down to the walled city of Dubrovnik in southern Croatia, approximately 900km away.  Buses were a big no, planes had a 12+ hour layover in Zagreb, while ferries are a 24 hour trip: Rijeka -> Split -> Korcula …

Playing Paintball in Croatia with the Hrvatska Paintball League

On Saturday night at around 11:30pm we left Pula, for a 360km road trip to Krizevci for the Hrvatska (Croatia) Paintball League tournament.  Our trip involved us going up via Labin (I couldn’t get google maps to show the exact route) through the major city of Rijeka and then a 3 hour stop at Karlovac (home of the beer of a …
