(137 days in) It was a six hour flight from Nadi, Fiji to Melbourne, Australia. Within that time we learned that Fiji Airways doesn’t give you a screen on the back of your seat for such a short trip and that the mini screens they provide for everyone at once look like they’re beamed to … Continue reading Just Like Home!
BULA (118 days in) (M: Before we jump into Pete’s narrative, I just want to mention that I came close to writing this blog post myself as I feel like I could wax lyrical about Fiji for days, despite my lack of literary/creative/descriptive talent. The genuine warmth and friendliness of the people, the lush rainforest-covered … Continue reading BULA!!
(106 Days in) I’m still playing catch up with my journalistic ambitions at this stage and am using the ‘Fiji time’ vibe to my advantage. The last post was a little long, which I apologise for, but I will try to keep this chunk more succinct and not waffle on as much about gambling or … Continue reading The End of the Beginning Part 2 (The City of Angels)
(104 […103? 105?] days in - we almost completely lost October 17th due to crossing the international date line, so I’m no longer sure how to work this out.) As readers will know, the last post covered up until Vegas, even though it was written after we had left the city. And this time I … Continue reading The End of the Beginning Part 1 (a.k.a. VEGAS BABY!)
(81 days in) “You should be writing a blog post,” she said, a look of almost-exasperation flashing across her face. The balding mass hunched over the nearby table barely seemed to respond, a slight fall of its shoulders the only evidence it had heard. “I was hoping you wouldn’t say that just yet - I … Continue reading Paraphrased
(71 days in) It’s recently come to my attention that my chosen travel partner and I are about a 3rd of the way through this huge adventure. We’ve been in the States for over 2 months now - learned their ways, eaten their food and mostly driven their roads. This time lapse was a startling … Continue reading Parental Guidance Part 2

Today you meet us sat in a welcoming little hostel just outside of the centre of New Orleans. For any of you with a creepy level of knowledge about our journey you'll know … Continue reading The (almost) Deep South, Newcomers, and the Heart of American Music
(50 days in) So, you last left us after we’d had a smashing time with Ms. Wilks up in the Great White North. Whilst writing, we were perched in a small town between there and New York City called Schenectady. As ever it was just a stopping point for our more interesting parts. But BOY … Continue reading The Other Coast
(39 days in) Welcome back! It's been a bit longer than I would have liked since we last updated you, but we've had some action-packed days. From where we left you, we've travelled through Chicago and Toronto (as well as Detroit, but not for long enough to do anything unfortunately). The former was my favourite … Continue reading Our Favourite City So Far And The True North
(31 days in) As per the title, we have been in the fine US of A for a month. We've travelled through 9 states (10 if you count accidentally turning into Montana and then realising it was the wrong way), 3 time zones, 3 national parks and almost too many cities to count (obviously we … Continue reading What Being In America For a Month Can Teach You
