Khao San Sunrises: Bummin’ it in Bangkok

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

I had some expectations for Bangkok when I arrived at 4 AM on yet another “perfectly” scheduled night bus drop off.

A Journey Through Madagascar: Notes on the Privilege of Travel

To be blunt, our trip to Koh Tao was nothing like the scuba-filled tropical adventure we had been building up to for months.

Neither of us were physically fit to dive nor did we have the mental drive. To top it off, we realized our visas expired in a couple days

Exploring Kuala Lumpur: Petaling to Petronas

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

Pulling into the city that would end up being the final stop on my backpacking campaign, it was difficult to see how large and lively Kuala Lumpur was under the cover of darkness. After taking a long bus ride into the area, the modern light-rail system took us the final distance to the Petaling Hotel near Petaling Street. Only a few hundred feet from the entrance to the Petaling Street market, I could see the crowded areas packed with street food and cheap merchandise from in front of the hotel. Petaling Street Area  This picture at the entry to Petaling Street does

24 hours in Stockholm, Sweden

by sarahkennerley@gmail.com @ Sarah Sees The World

One of the great things about travelling in Europe is the cheap flights available between the cities there. Renee and I bought some ridiculously cheap flights to spend a weekend in Stockholm in August. We arrived late on a Friday night from Bergen and flew back to London on the Sunday afternoon which basically left us with just 24 hours in Stockholm to explore, but which proved enough time with a planned route and some prioritising. The World Triathlon Championships were taking place in Stockholm the same weekend and with the costs of accommodation high we stayed in a Airbnb in Södermalm. Our 24 hours in Stockholm At 10am on Saturday we loaded up on Bagels and coffee for breakfast at The Bagel in the middle of Södermalm. I went with the ‘New York’ which was the classic Salmon, Cream Cheese and Capers. At 10:40am we set off on foot towards downtown Stockholm […]

Currently // The aftermath of a multi-month adventure

by sarahkennerley@gmail.com @ Sarah Sees The World

It blows my mind that I have a UK bank account and passport as well as New Zealand ones. I can get off a flight, rock straight through customs, use my Oyster Card on the Tube, walk into a bar in London and pay with a local bank card. I spent my last few days in London in late August wondering why I don’t live there. I cycled along canals on a Boris Bike, walked through parks as people sunbathed and enjoyed picnics, ate at amazing restaurants, and drank outside at pubs with good people. But surely it’s possible to somehow have the best of the travel and home worlds, regardless of how isolated this country is? Because I also love living in Wellington right now. I also start to struggle with the pace of long-term travel, perhaps even becoming anhedonic. I want to be where my friends and family […]

Things I learnt when an airline lost my luggage

by sarahkennerley@gmail.com @ Sarah Sees The World

In July I was travelling from Barcelona to Luxembourg when security strikes at Barcelona airport meant we were unable to get through security in time to board our flight. However our checked bags did make the flight and took off without us and were subsequently lost by the airline for four days. This resulted in us having to find an alternative route to Luxembourg with only the clothes on our back and the items in our hand luggage. Just over a month later my luggage again failed to turn up on a luggage carousel, this time in Auckland. Thankfully this time it was located within a few hours in Frankfurt, having missed my connection to Hong Kong 30 hours earlier. I got it back three days later. Here are some of the things I learnt when an airline lost my luggage which will improve your situation if it ever happens to […]

Can an airport lounge membership save you money?

by sarahkennerley@gmail.com @ Sarah Sees The World

It’s a trap that’s easy to fall into: once you’ve experienced what it’s like to have an airport lounge membership it’s very hard to opt out again. After several years of free passes and a gifted membership, last year I found myself without access to Air New Zealand’s Koru Lounge and associated member benefits. Sitting at the gate to wait for your flight without the glam feel and perks a lounge brings suddenly feels a lot less glam. There are generally four ways you can gain access to an airport lounge: Pay for a business-class (or better) ticket Improve your airline status to Gold or higher. This means frequently flying with the same airline rather than purchasing the best fare available Travel with someone who is a member Pay for a membership My Westpac credit card meant no joining fee and a $125 discount on the annual fee for Air New Zealand’s Koru airport […]

Eating in the Food Capital of Malaysia – George Town, Penang

by pvrouvas @ The Only Pete | Travel & Technology Blog

Leaving Southern Thailand behind, the journey to Malaysia involved an overnight ferry, four different mini-vans, and the most unorganized customs/border service I experienced in Southeast Asia. And that’s saying a lot considering the tourist swindling operations at the Laos border. In the customs office, the border officials requested our immunizations card, something the United States does not provide. After denying their request, we let them take our temperatures and they asked us if we had the Zika virus – of course we all replied that we did not. After sitting in the office for 45 minutes while they copied our information by hand

Iceland

Iceland was a country I’d aspired to visit for some time having read Kaelene’s blog Unlocking Kiki for several years. Visiting in August there was close to 18 hours of daylight per day, but the temperatures in Reykjavik, were similar to those in Wellington in the same month – the difference being that it was Winter in Wellington. I can’t imagine how cold it must be living here in Winter! One thing I will say for Iceland’s tourism industry is that they do tours well. They’re efficient, well organised and regular. Renee and I didn’t really shop around, we just went with Reykjavik Excursions as they operated the airport bus (for a little more you can get dropped to or collected from your hotel rather than the bus station), as well as offering tours to The Blue Lagoon and around The Golden Circle.

I know for a fact that I had never tasted nor wondered what Malay food was like until I showed up in Malaysia. After a few weeks and dozens of meals in the country, I’m still not 100% sure what Malay food really is. Why?

Between the Chinese noodle soups and Indian curry dishes, both of which are local styles, it’s pretty difficult to distinguish what is solely Malay. Even though I couldn’t pick it out of

For the past several years, the use of new point-of-sales (POS) technologies, like Square, that use a touchscreen have become popular among businesses. These systems are sleek, easy to use, and have decreased the length of in-store credit card transactions. For me, they have also done one more thing – raise my self-consciousness about not tipping. One reason shop owners love these systems, I assume, is that they increase tips. After the cashier swipes your card, they flip the screen around to face you and you see a screen that looks like this: Before these systems, a customer would have

My favourite places of 2017 (and a wishlist for 2018)

by sarahkennerley@gmail.com @ Sarah Sees The World

Out of everywhere I went last year there are some clear winners in my mind as to my favourite places of 2017. 2017 was an epic year of travel for me.

The breakfast offering was also outstanding and our room probably the biggest Renee and I had while travelling through Europe. The shops were open late, […]

Why a self-catering apartment is your best budget bet

by Screndels @ Twourism

Endless ice cream in summer sun; enough drink to drown in; snacks swiftly supplied to suppress even the hint of hunger. The all-inclusive package was a pretty good deal. When I was 12 years old. Then I matured and the glossy package holiday where everything was included didn’t seem quite as valuable through adult eyes. […]
