Our Travelationship in Review September 2016

By: Heather

We started the month on Gili Meno in Indonesia. It is the more low-key of the three Gili islands, and I’d say for what we needed and wanted we chose correctly. The island is teeny tiny. I walked its perimeter at a very slow pace in under two hours. Our accommodations were probably the most interesting to date. We thought we were staying in a hut. Instead, it was a platform with a mattress, mosquito net, and three non-connecting grass walls. I wouldn’t quite call it camping but definitely, would not call it a hut. It took a few minutes to get used to, but it ended up being a relatively fun and unique couple of nights.

Travelationship Review August 2016

Travelationship in Review: August 2016

By: Heather

Wow! August started out with some thrills. As we left El Nido and headed back to Puerto Princesa, Philippines we found ourselves in a bit of a car accident. The winding road between the two cities was slippery due to a burst of rain. Our van driver was quite good but happened to hit a curve in just the wrong spot. Our van spun around on the road landing in the steep ditch rear end first.

Travelationship Review July 2016

Our Travelationship in Review: July 2016

By: Heather

July had its ups or downs with not much in between. The month started out strong. We finished up our time in Cape Town with a couple walking tours, which included a bit of the street art in the Old District Six and Fringe Street area. As we left Cape Town, we promised we would return, but our next visit will be in their Spring or Autumn months instead of their winter months.

By: Heather

June started out on a GA8 Airvan plane flying over the famous Okavango Delta in Botswana. We didn’t think life could get much better than that, but it did! June 2016 earned the title of our best travel month to date.

Our Travelationship in Review: May 2016

By: Heather

May could not have been more opposite of April. We went from laid back and slow to go, go, go. We admit it was a bit weird to get back into the swing of being on the move. We had been idle for two months and didn’t think the inactivity would affect us as much as it did. However, the stillness allowed us to re-evaluate our methods and re-energize our perspectives. We enjoyed housesitting and are looking forward to more caretaking in the next year.
