Milford Sound New Zealand… God’s Country

by Stefanie Kate Acworth @ A Modern Wayfarer

Every once in a while you visit a place in nature that your soul just connects with. A place so pure and untouched by evolution’s grubby clutches you catch a glimpse of a world far more ancient, far more intricate than you’ve ever known. A place where you finally understand the meaning of “God’s Country”. Right at the very bottom of New Zealand’s South Island, just a few hours by car from Queenstown in Fiordland National Park exists such a place. It is there that hundreds of vividly turquoise lakes, cascading snow-capped mountains and extraordinarily beautiful vistas etched a permanent imprint into my mind. You can stand in the middle of a vast valley and literally feel the eternal power of mother-nature as the towering mountains, like waves of tranquility, wash over you like waterfalls. You feel forever changed, and yet it is hard to describe exactly how you have changed. No matter how well you try to explain it, how extensive your vocabulary, how many vivid connotations you can incite by your magician-like use of speech, the fact remains the same, words just don’t do this place justice. …So I’ll stop with the words (right after the Facts and Tips below), and hope that my images can better convey Milford Sound and Fiordland National Park in all its splendour. Quick Facts & Tips: Fiordland is a World Heritage Site now over 1.2 million hectares in size. It is made up of renowned mountains such as Mitre Peak and Fiords like Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound. It encompasses mountain, lake, fiord and rainforest environments and recieves approximately 9 meters of rainfall every year (that’s the most of anywhere in the world) – so bring your raincoats! The hub of the Fiordland Region is the beautiful lakeside town of Te Anau, where there are plenty of lodging and food options. It is located 2.5 hours drive from Milford Sound (and about 3 hours drive from Queenstown) and is the last stop where you can buy fuel on the drive. In the Peak period between October and April it is very important to book your accommodation and activities in advance to ensure you secure these. Te Anau can get particularly busy in February and it is a long way to the next town if you have not already made accommodation bookings. There are times over the summer months when both Te Anau…

Saigon Highlights: A Sign of the Times

by Stefanie Kate Acworth @ A Modern Wayfarer

There is a noticeable schism between two of Vietnam’s most well known cities. On the one hand, you’ve got Ha Noi, with it’s quaint charm and faint French-colonial vibe, and on the other you’ve got the progressive and ever-growing Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon as the locals still like to call it. Fast becoming one of the key commercial hubs in Asia, this type of urbanisation filters right down to the type and flavour of Saigon highlights. Free citywide wireless Internet anyone? It is this Vietnam North/South variance in contemporary values and westernization that sees Saigon bustling with change.  For a city more than twice the size of the nation’s capital, it’s not hard to fathom that so many high-rises, international hotels, sky-high bars and luxury housing developments are going up as far as the eye can see. The city is also bustling with new inhabitants from the north and inland Vietnam keen to land one of the many jobs on offer in the finance, retail and IT sector. Of course, you can still see sights of historic significance, but these take a back seat to the cosmopolitan atmosphere of a city that has visibly eschewed the “old ways” in favour of economic growth.  Saigon Highlights  HCMC by Motorbike We all know the old adage: “the best way to see a place is through the eyes of a local”. Well, Adam from Saigon Unseen Tours can do you one better. Not only is he an Aussie expat turned local, he offers tours through the city the way locals see it – by motorbike or scooter. Now, before you conjure up images of piloting your very own two-wheel contraption, constantly cheating death while darting amongst the infamous Asian traffic, just know that the bikes are driven by very experienced drivers who live in the area, so the only thing you’ll be doing is hanging on (and seeing the sights of course). The great thing about each tour is that they’re private, meaning that the itinerary is pretty much malleable to you and your travel buddies’ desires.  Minimum one person. Cost: 900,000VND (approx.. 45USD) per person – Pay on the day.  Cu Chi Tunnels The Cu Chi tunnels are tiny. And I mean like, really really miniscule. They are also quite fascinating: a three-level tunnel system the Viet Cong constructed and used as a base against the French and Americans in the…

Thailands Floating Cinema: A Flashback

by Stefanie Kate Acworth @ A Modern Wayfarer

Thailands Floating Cinema was a fleeting spectacle that gave new meaning to the term “going out” to the movies. The world is no stranger to the Outdoor Cinema, but what if the world was floating somewhere in the middle of a tranquil lagoon, idly rocking back and forth with the tide while viewing a quaint screen floating on the horizon in front of them? This was reality in March 2012, when the quintessential outdoor cinema catapulted from its humble, grounded origins and re-imagined into the clear blue waters of Nai Pi Lae Lagoon on Kuda Island for the last night of the Rocks Nao Yoi Festival. The designer of Thailands Floating Cinema, Beijing-based architect Ole Scheeren, described the project as “A screen, nestled somewhere between the rocks. And the audience…floating…hovering above the sea, somewhere in the middle of this incredible space of the lagoon, focused on the moving images across the water: a sense of temporality, randomness, almost like driftwood. Or maybe something more architectural: modular pieces, loosely assembled, like a group of little islands that congregate to form an auditorium.” You catch his drift… How Was Thailands Floating Cinema Constructed? The project adopted traditional Thai building practices, gleaning techniques used by local fishermen to construct floating lobster farms. The cinema was crafted out of recycled materials and buoyant pockets of wood bound together with mosquito nets. There is hope that the no-longer-functioning marvel will reappear as a cinema once again at some stage, but for now, parts of it sit as a floating playground for the children of the Yao Noi community.

One Eleven Villas Bali: Sleep Simplicity

by stefanie @ A Modern Wayfarer

One Eleven Villas is a Bali Hotel I’ve had my eye on for a while. From the first time I scooted past the minimalist timber façade of the reception I was intrigued. With it’s sleek design and unpretentious vibe, One Eleven looked like something special. A quick Google search of the interior further proved my inkling: this ultra-luxury private hideaway set among the hustle and bustle of Petitinget, was indeed somewhere I wanted to stay! Fast-forward three years, and I got my chance! I was lucky enough to spend three days in one of their nine giant villas courtesy of Jetstar Australia. And when I say giant I mean huge – each of their 350sqm villas (which are identical, incase you were wondering) take up so much prime Seminyak Real Estate they are the biggest one-bedroom villas in the area. Tick. The villas are just so… spacious! Did I mention that already? I felt like I could shout across the pool to Ed and nobody else would hear me. So much openness… so much style… so much luxury. My senses were in overload from the moment I arrived and walked down a path next to a green wall-laden with thousands of fauna pots to my villa to the moment I checked-out. So let’s start with the most obvious, the 14m pool. It’s giant (just like everything else) – you could use it to train for the Olympics if you wanted to. Obviously you won’t actually want to because you’re here for a blissful holiday but the offers still staring you in the face. Then there’s your own private spa gazebo (“Ahuh! That’s what that structure is,” I hear you saying) where you can have award-winning therapists massage and treat you to yours hearts’ content. Also, if you feel like playing a spot of cricket after your treatments you could probably do that too because there’s so. much. grass. Space is the key word here people, space. Then there’s the villa itself, half of it is open air and the other half is not. The villa structure and interior is a perfect example of beautiful modern minimalist design, and being the brainchild of well-known Japanese architect Mr Naoya Matsumoto and Interior Architect Architect Shigemasa, you’d expect nothing less. The living and kitchen area are expansive, with high-ceilings and a large comfortable couch you can chill on when you want to get…

Wow, what can I say? this is one of the best things I have ever done in Ho Chi Minh City.
I was a little hesitant at first about braving the traffic in Ho Chi Minh on the back of a motorbike driven by a complete stranger. But as it turned out, I had no cause to be concerned.
We visited places that are simply inaccessible by car. Consequently we saw things that we would not have normally seen.
The drivers had good English & were able to explain not just where we were, but a little of the history of the area as well. If you want to find out what Ho Chi Minh is really like from people who live there, this is the tour for you
Thankyou so much Mr Sau & Mr Song for a wonderful day.

The Truth About Halong Bay Junk Boats

by Stefanie Kate Acworth @ A Modern Wayfarer

A “Junk Boat” is still a Junk Boat, no matter how much you pay. Halong Bay Junk Boats are still Junk Boats even if the brochure the Vietnamese travel agent gave you makes it look like luxury incarnate. It is still a Junk Boat if, compared to other Junk Boats around you in the water, it looks like the veritable Sofitel of Junk Boats. Moral of the story? Junk Boats are in fact, rundown pieces of, well, junk. Granted, they’ve been given a lick of paint and a clean fit-out, but if you look closely enough the rust will reveal itself and the doors wont close properly. They’re simply a mere 2 minutes from being sent to the scrapyard. I’m not being negative, I just feel it is my duty to inform each and every one of you of this undeniable fact so that you can make an informed decision. Know before you go, right? The problem is, it’s pretty hard to experience Halong Bay without staying on one of these, let’s say, “interesting” old things. And the fact that the scenery is out of this world amazing makes this even more of a pickle. So, apart from being forewarned (you can thank me later) do yourself a favour and research, research, research! And don’t just look on Trip Adviser people, because those reviews are deceiving, pester anyone you know who’s been on a semi-decent Junk Boat in Vietnam and ask questions! There have been whispers (and don’t hold me to it) in travel circles that the Paradise Pearl and Paradise Luxury Boats from Paradise Cruises Halong Bay are both premium offerings, so you might want to start your search there. We spent two nights on the A-class Opera Cruise (fondly christened the “Ass Opera” by yours truly) in their best room known as “The Honeymoon Suite”. Pay close attention to the use of inverted commas! The food (which was included in the package) was some strange mix of Western/Vietnamese moosh of fries, frozen microwave fish and fried whatever. Needless to say we were disappointed. For $260USD per person for 2 nights we expected a little better. Especially when the amount didn’t even include beverages or snacks. The group itinerary for the trip was made up of numerous cave  and beach romps which got a bit boring after a while. We wanted action! We wanted adventure!  What we grew tired of…

Beginners Guide to Sri Lanka: Know Before You Go

by stefanie @ A Modern Wayfarer

Katie Heller from the Outrageously awesome travel blog Postcards from Yonder gives us a definitive ‘Beginners Guide to Sri Lanka’ from her experience travelling in the exotic land! ~ I went to Sri Lanka because Skyscanner told me to. Well, kind of. I was browsing flights from Malaysia, and expected the cheapest flights to go to Thailand or Vietnam or somewhere else on the Banana Pancake trail, but alas, there it was: Sri Lanka — for a whopping $60…! So, knowing jack shit about India’s tiny island neighbour, I nudged my boyfriend, and said ‘hey…let’s go.’ Of course, that spontaneity was very quickly followed by furious research into this mysterious country (I’m not actually that good at whimsy), but as I tried to plan our impulsive two week trip, it became clear that this portion of our travels would not be an extension of the ease we experienced while roaming around South East Asia. I read enough to realise that Sri Lanka simply lacks the backpacking infrastructure that many other countries have, and though I tried my darndest to prepare (seriously, I spent wayyyyy too much time on TripAdvisor forums), it turns out the internet doesn’t know everything. For all the hours I spent combing through information, our expectations were often shattered, which was frustrating, but also…. surprisingly, rewarding. Indeed, in this here Age of the Internet, a place like Sri Lanka — where there aren’t 18 competing bus companies offering transport from Point A to Point B — forces you to get creative, stay flexible, and rely on the locals. Carpooling, rerouting, and going with the flow are necessary when it comes to budget travel in Sri Lanka, and though that might sound challenging to the impatient planning type (hey, that’s me!), it turns out it’s actually a recipe for old-fashioned fun. Like, stop-trying-to-book-everything-on-your-phone-and-see-the-world kind of fun —  fun where you meet new people, see new places, and experience new things, without obsessively refreshing the best-reviewed anything. But! While I obviously recommend enjoying the mostly analog travel-experience that is Sri Lanka, it will be massively helpful to get a few things straight before you go. Which is why I’ve put together notes on the basics — a field guide, if you will. So, if you’re going to consult anything before your trip, make it this. And then, put the computer down, and enjoy Sri Lanka. A Beginners Guide To SRI…

Hanoi Highlights: A Street-Cart Named Desire

by Stefanie Kate Acworth @ A Modern Wayfarer

Sometimes when you’re on the road, unexpected things happen. Like exiting your hotel in old town Hanoi in search of a local travel agent and ending up at his family’s place for dinner. There are many tantalising Hanoi highlights – both big and small – to be uncovered just by walking down the street and chatting to the locals. It is this eager hospitality and old-world charm that sets the city apart from other Vietnamese cities, as well as its fresh and tasty street or “hawker” food lining the footpaths around the Old Quarter. Declaring it a physical impossibility to go hungry in this city would be an understatement. With delectable delights of Bun Cha (grilled pork and noodles) and Beef Pho (pronounced “pha”, I swear)  steaming away right in front of you, all you have to do is pull up a crate and get gorging. Eating on the street is always a memorable experience, from the ephemeral nature of many vendors, who might be there Tuesday but not Monday, and possibly only until 10:45am, or whenever they run out of food, to the often chaotic setting, with the makeshift hawker stalls dotted along the sidewalk and the noisy Vietnamese traffic blaring in the background. There are of course, some commonsense tips to follow when choosing your preferred vendor: Always look for vendors with people already eating their fare. Ensure the food is still bubbling and boiling in the Pho pots. Scope out how clean the “kitchen” and the condiments look. If you follow these tried and tested tips both your taste buds and stomach will be happy. Hanoi Highlights Hoan Kiem Lake (The Lake of the Restored Sword) First things first, when you arrive in Hanoi head straight to its historical centre and take a leisurely stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake. It’s a great way to get a feel for this French-colonial-inspired city, and it is one of the major scenic spots serving as a focal point for its public life. Quaint little café’s line the lake so you’ll have your pick of where to stop for lunch. Take a Tuk Tuk Ride Every city in Southeast Asia has a different kind of tuk-tuk, and cyclos are Hanoi’s tuk-tuks! The driver pedals you in a bike-like device reminiscent of a wheelchair. Warning: these contraptions are built for two very minuscule people, and if you do manage to squeeze in with…

Best of Bingin Beach Bali

by stefanie @ A Modern Wayfarer

Bingin Beach Bali is one of my favourite places in the world. Apart from its breathtaking beauty, relaxed surfer vibe and rustic accomodation, there’s a certain sense of calm you feel when descending the sea-facing steps which seem to go on forever. You weave through cute little warungs built into cliffs and once those waves touch your toes you really know you’ve arrived in paradise. Some of the best times I’ve had in Bali were spent watching the sun go down on Bingin Beach, eating fresh prawns, sipping Bintangs and bonding with free spirits from all over. Bingin Beach Bali truly is one of the only places left in the south where you feel like maybe, just maybe, you travelled in a time-warp to the Bali of the seventies, where an eclectic mix of surfer gypsies and yogis are hanging ten without a care in the world. Best of Bingin Beach Bali The Cashew Tree Cafe… for fresh salads and organic smoothies. Kellys Warung… for cheap comfort food and Bintangs after surfing. Deeksha Bali Beach House… for when you’ve got a group of friends and need a shack on the beach (accommodates 8 at $201 AUD / night) The Temple Lodge… for early morning yoga overlooking the ocean The Sun and Surf Stay… for clean, inexpensive rooms with best view in the world! Lucky Fish… for the best grilled seafood cooked right on the beach! El Kabron… for a slightly upmarket evening feast with sweeping cliff-top views. Mu Resort… for when you want a bit of pampering and a massage. Mick’s Place… for the infinity pool with sweeping views across the peninsular and eco-rooms on top of the cliff (if walking up and down cliff stairs all day isn’t your bag). ~ How To Get To Bingin Beach Bali If you want to make the easy trip to Bali to check out Bingin Beach, Jetstar Airways has daily flights from most major cities in Australia direct to Denpaser International Airport. You’ll be flying on their hi-tech Boeing 787 Dreamliner if you depart from Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne, which provides a better in-flight experience as the aircraft is 60% less noisy than other planes their size. They also emit less nitrous oxide, meaning they are better for the environment and have low cabin altitude which enables passengers to absorb more oxygen on board. Say bye-bye to being drowsy and hello to uninterrupted sleep! To book flights, visit Jetstar.com. Once you’ve landed in…

Danakil Depression tours: what to know before you go

By certain measures, the Danakil Depression in Ethiopia is considered to be the hottest place on earth with temperatures regularly reaching 45°C (113°F). Despite the challenges involved in visiting such a remote and hostile environment, there are numerous Danakil Depression tours on offer.

Surprisingly, tour companies tend to provide very little information for their would-be customers. Key information such as what to expect and what to pack is missing from most tour company websites.

World’s most powerful passport 2018

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

Ten years ago, in my first job after graduation, I shared an office with a guy called Munir who I nicknamed Dr^2 because he not only had a PhD but was also qualified as a medical doctor. (I recognise it’s not the wittiest name in the world but it was the best I could do at the time.)

Munir loved learning British colloquialisms (“armchair critic”, “fairweather friend”), played loud Arabic music while he worked and held a Jordanian passport. One day, he came into work clearly frustrated and announced that he was giving up on travelling. Stationed in the UK for three years, he thought he would have a great opportunity to see Europe while he was here. Alas, his passport was so restrictive that securing visas became distinctly Sisyphean. He as a doctor (twice over) had fewer rights than I did as a new grad just because of our passports.

Simien Mountains National Park: trekking Africa’s Grand Canyon

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

If Simien Mountains National Park really were ‘Africa’s Grand Canyon’, how was it that I knew nothing of it? Was this just Peter’s ploy to drag me out camping again?

I knew of the park by name, but couldn’t point to it on a map, or tell you what I might find there. To be honest, prior to planning our trip, I had no idea there were proper mountains in Ethiopia – a result perhaps of TIA syndrome which conjures dusty, flyblown vistas and not the vast gorges of lush beauty that populate Simien Mountains National Park.

And, so, I set off with my expectations in check. After seeing the fiery furnace of Erta Ale, the yellow lakes of Dallol and the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela and Tigray, I thought I’d seen the best of Ethiopia. But, no, this inscrutable country had one more gem to sell.

Exploring Gondar castle in the ‘Camelot of Africa’

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

Gondar castle is improbable. It’s improbable in size, style and design, but mostly in location. After all, this is Ethiopia and if TIA is to be believed, we should be looking at desertscapes dotted with baobab trees, not a Camelot in the sun.

Gondar castle in the fortress city of Fasil Ghebbi indeed evokes legends of yore. This shouldn’t be such a surprise given the Great Mosque of Djenné and Africa’s other architectural wonders, but I find the evocation of medieval Europe astonishing, perhaps more so because as Ethiopians will tell you, theirs is one of only two African countries that were never colonised (the other being Liberia).

Best-selling camping and hiking gear of 2017

by Peter @ Atlas & Boots

In general, I don't tend to spend much money on clothing and non-photography related gadgets. I am comfortable enough loafing around in jeans and a t-shirt. On top of that, I hate shopping with a vengeance. If I really focus, I can avoid shopping malls for most of the year, succumbing only in the lead up to Christmas.

That said, outdoor stores are a different kettle of fish. I can while away hours wandering the aisles, leafing through maps and checking out the latest lightweight gadgets.

How To Travel Like A Local

by stefanie @ A Modern Wayfarer

How To Travel Like a Local… Picture this: you’re standing at the end of a one million meter line to climb the Eiffel Tower, it’s 34 degrees and you’re dripping in sweat, you’re hideously hungover and you’re so hungry you could eat at least five ham and cheese croissants. Sure, it’s the Eiffel Tower – one of the most treasured monuments in the world – but did you really go travelling just to waste an entire afternoon staring at the back of someone’s ‘I love Paris’ t-shirt and reluctantly sniffing their ‘old-spice’ scent every time the line moves? Cue the rise of the anti-tourist, or ‘sight-skippers’ if you prefer. These people eschew the tour-group hoards gravitating toward the famous landmarks of each city and instead choose to immerse themselves in everyday ordinary life, just casually going about their business as if they were locals. I tend to identify with this type of travel tribe, mostly because I’m allergic to waiting in lines. It took me a couple of go’s to step foot inside the Colosseum in Rome, and while it was of-course fantastical and awe-inspiring, there were about fifty million people thinking exactly the same thing (while elbowing me in the side to take pictures). It wasn’t the most enjoyable experience I must admit, and personally, I would have much rather frequented the quaint little Gelatissimo down some random side street to gaze at the larger-than-life Italians crazily zipping by on scooters. I’m not suggesting you reject history or architecture completely, there’s a reason each city has their very own attractions, but there really is something to be said about spending your entire trip doing only touristy things. It’s not rocket science, if you eat where the tourists eat, see what the tourists see and do what the tourists do, you’re going to have exactly the same experience as every other poor tourist schlep. You can be a visitor but still keep a little somethin’ somethin’ for yourself. So here’s how to travel like a local… Choose Your Get-Up Wisely… A DSLR slung nonchalantly across your chest spells cool and intriguing (and an open invitation for people to come and talk to you about what you’re photographing), but a money-belt or bum-bag spells just plain weird. Oh, and don’t wear ‘I love [insert city here] ’ t-shirts, anywhere. Ever. Stay Local… Large hotels in the CBD are handy when it…

Sail the Aeolian Islands with Yacht Getaways

by stefanie @ A Modern Wayfarer

  Go Sail the Aeolian Islands before the word is out.  Hands up if you’ve heard of the Aeolian Islands? Not many people have… yet. This little known archipelago – an eclectic mix of dramatic volcanic rock, grey pebbly beaches, dry arid greenery and navy blue waters situated off the coast of Sicily – has piqued my interest ever since I read The Gypset Travel Atlas by Julia Chapman. I had wanted to climb aboard a boat and sail the elusive Aeolian islands because I imagined them as the last frontier, a sort of travel mecca for the curious and curiouser, and I wanted in. It’s kind of funny, because last year on another sail with Yacht Getaways in Croatia, I distinctly remember mentioning to my friend and fellow travel-blogger Phoebe from Wood and Luxe, that we “must must must organise a group to sail the Aeolian Islands next year! I don’t care if we have to drive the boat ourselves!” I said. At the time (July 2016) there were no sailing operators cruising the route, and a very small number of Italian private charter yachts for hire without a skipper. Nonetheless I was determined to get there this year and I was going to do it in a bloody rubber ducky if I had too! But, as fortune would have it, I didn’t need to stoop anywhere NEAR that low (although the island-hopping rubber-ducky style thing could be an interesting adventure to attempt one of these days… probably drunk, and with copious amounts of radio/GPS battery ;). Some amazing travel genie must have heard my wish last year, because in March I found out that Yacht Getaways were introducing the Aeolian Island route in August! My stoke was at an all time high. The Yacht Getaways Aeolian Island route has the same luxe Catamarans as their other outposts – the yachts sleep 8, and all 4 bedrooms have ensuites which, can I tell you, is such a lifesaver if you’re on a boat full of girls! They have the same awesome and knowledgeable skippers and hosts, the same gourmet (included) breakfasts and lunches made and served fresh for you daily on the boat while you wile away the day exploring secret coves on paddle boards and kayaks, getting epic drone footage of erupting volcanoes (drone vid to come, thanks @dronegramz_) and eating your fair share of Italian carbohydrates. Each day we…

Leap of faith: hiking to the vertiginous Tigray churches

by Kia @ Atlas & Boots

I was feeling uncharacteristically nervous. It wasn’t the narrow ledges with sheer drops that had me spooked, but the prospect of climbing with ropes – something I’d never done before.

On viewing Abuna Yemata Guh, however, you can understand why ropes are sensible. This rock-hewn church in the Gheralta region of Ethiopia is carved into the side of a vertical spire of rock with 200m (650ft) drops on all sides. To reach it, you must scale a sheer wall of rock and inch along a precipitous ledge, all in bare feet. In fact, Abuna Yemata Guh is said to be the world’s least accessible place of worship.

Saigon Highlights: A Sign of the Times

by Stefanie Kate Acworth @ Ho Chi Minh City – A Modern Wayfarer

There is a noticeable schism between two of Vietnam’s most well known cities. On the one hand, you’ve got Ha Noi, with it’s quaint charm and faint French-colonial vibe, and on the other you’ve got the progressive and ever-growing Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon as the locals still like to call it. Fast becoming one of the key commercial hubs in Asia, this type of urbanisation filters right down to the type and flavour of Saigon highlights. Free citywide wireless Internet anyone? It is this Vietnam North/South variance in contemporary values and westernization that sees Saigon bustling with change.  For a city more than twice the size of the nation’s capital, it’s not hard to fathom that so many high-rises, international hotels, sky-high bars and luxury housing developments are going up as far as the eye can see. The city is also bustling with new inhabitants from the north and inland Vietnam keen to land one of the many jobs on offer in the finance, retail and IT sector. Of course, you can still see sights of historic significance, but these take a back seat to the cosmopolitan atmosphere of a city that has visibly eschewed the “old ways” in favour of economic growth.  Saigon Highlights  HCMC by Motorbike We all know the old adage: “the best way to see a place is through the eyes of a local”. Well, Adam from Saigon Unseen Tours can do you one better. Not only is he an Aussie expat turned local, he offers tours through the city the way locals see it – by motorbike or scooter. Now, before you conjure up images of piloting your very own two-wheel contraption, constantly cheating death while darting amongst the infamous Asian traffic, just know that the bikes are driven by very experienced drivers who live in the area, so the only thing you’ll be doing is hanging on (and seeing the sights of course). The great thing about each tour is that they’re private, meaning that the itinerary is pretty much malleable to you and your travel buddies’ desires.  Minimum one person. Cost: 900,000VND (approx.. 45USD) per person – Pay on the day.  Cu Chi Tunnels The Cu Chi tunnels are tiny. And I mean like, really really miniscule. They are also quite fascinating: a three-level tunnel system the Viet Cong constructed and used as a base against the French and Americans in the…

Exploring the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela

by Peter @ Atlas & Boots

The rock-hewn churches of Lalibela in Ethiopia are the most extraordinary man-made sites in sub-Saharan Africa. Here’s what we learnt from three days exploring them.

The 11 Ethiopian Orthodox rock-hewn churches of Lalibela are a focal point and a place of pilgrimage and devotion to Ethiopian Christians. In mid-January during the Timkat (Epiphany) festival, thousands of white-clad Ethiopian worshippers, descend on the churches. For tourists, the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela are an unmissable stop on tours of Ethiopia’s historic northern circuit.

How To Travel With Family (And Not Want To Strangle Them)

by stefanie @ A Modern Wayfarer

How To Travel With Family… Chances are a holiday with your inbreds had your vote to begin with. It may have even been your idea. But now that you’re in the thick of it things are getting prickly pretty quick, and between the sights and the spats it feels like your trapped in an episode of Family Guy: On Holiday. Travelling with your family is like downing a week-long cocktail of opinions, personalities and historic sibling angst. Someone’s bound to come along and set that rocket-fuel alight. So take three deeps breaths, pop the Vals and channel your best mediation skills, because there’s no escape. But, all is not lost. It is possible to get through a holiday with your relatives without wanting to strangle the living daylights out of them. Here’s how to travel with your family and actually really enjoy the experience.  How To Travel With Family Pack Light To Minimise The Whinging Remember the time you took 30kg and two carry-ons for a Fiji weekender? Yeah…no, now is not the time to pack your entire closet! When it comes to family holidays and baggage handling, it’s every (wo)man for themselves. There’s no special treatment. There’s no special person pushing the trolley with five bags piled on top. And if everyone packs light, transit time will be a blissfully quiet experience. Stay in Central Apartments or Houses Avoiding hotels is a must when you’re a large family travelling together. Squabbles occur when you’re living on top of each other, and fully self-contained apartments or houses give everyone breathing space (not to mention their own rooms) where hotels do not. Plus you’ve got the added bonus of staying on a centrally located street, a place where family members can meander home whenever they feel like a nap. Because nap-time is important. Get Multiple Keys For Said Central Apartments or Houses Following on the from the above, nobody wants to be walking the streets of Paris with a tired, shitty sibling who just wants to go home to nap but can’t because your other sibling took the only, solitary key with her to check-out the Louvre. Get multiple keys. Seriously. Your ears will thank you for it. Red Wine Is A Good Mediator Um, when is it not? It’s also good for lunch, afternoon-tea, dinner, drowning out the incessant noise of others and de-stressing after a long day walking the…

Top Queenstown Hiking Trails Worth The View

by stefanie @ A Modern Wayfarer

There are two things Queenstown in New Zealand’s south-island is know for: skiing and hiking. As fate would have it, these are two of my favourite adventure activities. There’s just something about the serenity and solitude of melting into a landscape vast and untouched – it’s very humbling. Here is a breakdown of my top Queenstown hiking trails worth a view… Queenstown Hill  No surprises here – this trail is errr, on a hill above Queenstown, but still deserves a place on my list! I suggest making this the first stop on your hiking journeys in order to get your bearings on the surrounding landscapes and of course, for picture-perfect views over the picturesque town. Word of warning though, this track is usually crowded year round because of its proximity to the town-centre (you can walk to the start of the trail in 15 minutes). Duration: 2-3 hours Grade: Easy Trailhead: 15 minute walk away from town centre on Belfast street.  Bob’s Cove When a hike has a ‘Picnic Point’ along the way you know it’s gonna be a comfortable stroll. Bob’s Cove is the shortest hike on my list, and takes you on a half-hour meander along the electric blue waters of Lake Wakatipu. Summer is the perfect time to visit – with a picnic, duh – some wine and your swimsuit. Many Kiwis enjoy running the track for fitness, which definitely makes it easier to brave the 11-degree Celsius water! Yes people, the Lake temperature rarely gets above this temperature so you may want to work up a sweat before attempting to swim! Duration 30-45 minutes Grade: Easy Trailhead: 15 minutes drive away from town centre towards Glenorchy Ben Lomond You can’t visit Queenstown and not hike Ben Lomond. It’s just a fact. Most photos plastered on the Queenstown tourism ads are taken from the top of this mountain, which offers spectacular 360 degrees of the Wakatipu Basin, Lake Wakatipu, The Remarkables mountain range, Cecil Peak and Walters Peak. Although physically demanding, the views are definitely worth it! Duration: 5-7 Hours Grade: Moderate Trailhead:  Take the skyline gondola up to Bob’s Peak or hike from the bottom of the gondola (additional 1 hour). Cecil Peak If you’re an avid hiker and keen for a challenge, Cecil Peak is where it’s at! Not many people hike this mountain and choose instead to tour the peak by helicopter or light plane, so you’ll pretty much have…
