We spent a few days in the Gili Islands to find a slower pace of life. Turns out three days in paradise isn't enough, take us back!
Nusa Penida is an island of extreme beauty but also a place that involves extreme effort in getting to the best spots. If you like a relaxing, easy time of it, this is not the place for you.
Langkawi is a little Malaysian paradise... duty free booze, white sand beaches, jungle trails, waterfalls, mountain views... we will be back!
Great food, tropical beaches, jungle gardens and rich history... what's not to love about Penang?
Two big backpacker destinations and the last of our Philippines trip - El Nido and Coron. This leg of the trip didn't work out quite as planned... but that just gives us an excuse to come back, doesn't it?
Boracay is a place you have to experience once.... it may be crowded and loud, but we had one of the best days of our trip so far. We paid for it the next day though!
We've had four days on Suquijor Island, a chilled out little place not known for it's party lifestyle, but great for seeing a glimpse of the 'real' Philippines
On our first night on Siquijor Island, we were invited to a Filipino birthday party. We were the only westerners there but couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome. Not a bad start to our time on the island!
