Phew this was some continent! The one with the fewest countries where we stayed the longest... seven months of which five in Australia. Our route here didn’t go exactly as planned but we’ve enjoyed every single country to the fullest. Unfortunately due to seasonal issues we had to skip a road trip through New Zealand for now, but we’ll be back. After three short city trips we are excited to see more of this natural beauty.

Our time in Australia and the islands in the South Pacific was incredible and we love to share with you the ins and outs of this memorable experience.

The countries on our route


‘Stayaaaaaaa!!! A roadtrip in our own car, a dream come true. Real freedom and all the time in the world to relax and enjoy nature. Sounds good right? This roadtrip of five months in this enormous country gave us the opportunity the really discover what it’s all about Down Under. We drove at total of over 13,000 kilometers,  every one of them equally exiting. Adventure was calling and we answered!

New Zealand

During our stay in Australia we flew to New Zealand to extend our visa, a visarun to Christchurch. Just for three days because we would go back to NZ after our stay in Australia anyway. But, traveling to this cool country late autumn suddenly didn’t seem so appealing anymore.  Plans are there to be changed, so we would not fly back to New Zealand. And then we did... but we just for another citytrip, twice.


After our long stay in Australia it was a small culture shock to visit our first destination in the South Pacific. Eventhough Vanuatu is a popular Cruiseship destination, most tourists don’t look any further than the capital Port Vila. We did and the result was extraordinary... an amazing and varied destination. Too bad we could only visit two of the many islands of Vanuatu.


Lush green islands surrounded by pristine beaches and fluorescent blue waters. Tropical islands where the women are strong and the men wear skirts. Oh yes we are in the centre of the SouthPacific! Tonga was a dream, not just above water but the untouched world below the surface too... healthy corals, clear blue water and tons of fish, what a treat!

French Polynesia

Who didn’t dream of Tahiti as a child, or as an adult even! We were and we were determined to go there. Here we were thinking all these years French Polynesia was all white tropical beaches everywhere you look. We’ve had to discover the true beauty of paradise is not a white beach... 26 days: 4 islands, 4 pages with a lot of gorgeous pictures!
