Kiwi Knights

Earlier this year (2010), two guys from New Zealand set out on a hike. Okay, not unusual for “Kiwis”. They seem to like hiking. But, this trek is somewhat unique as it follows the path of the Templar Knights which is not your normal modern-day quest. They’ve had their ups and downs – but, the [...]

Love & Paella

Love & Paella was “done birthed” by Sarah Gonski (her words) while she and her husband (The Mister) spent a summer traveling around Africa in 2008.

Conortje: an Irish crapologist on the move

Having been born on Pentecost Sunday, Conor believed that meant sainthood. Well, only to the age of six when he discovered differently. He was also an international rock mega-star – until his mother told him to go upstairs with his guitar and his songs. Now, he is traveling to see the world and writing about [...]

An Ache For The Distance

Though he may not always admit to his nationality, Stuart Mathieson does admit he has a love for travel. His writing style is truly his own and makes for a wonderful read. Whether it’s checking out a WWII historical site – because he desperately needed to use the “facilities” – or Bollywood cinema just because, [...]

Life in a Sack

Life in a Sack chronicles the travels of Paul Duan. Though currently “locked down” in a day job (money pays for travel), he has been writing about his past experiences and recent explorations.

Dart Strikes Map: An Interview with Tony and Thomas

Not long ago, I had the pleasure of conducting an interview with Tony and Thomas of ContemporaryNomad. They are a bi-national gay couple and have experienced numerous hurdles over their 17+ year relationship. Those obstacles have contributed to, but have not controlled, their ‘out of the box’ approach to problem-solving. Those same obstacles have also kept the nomadic fires burning. Once, they traveled because they felt they had to… Not anymore. They may not know the next port of call or what tomorrow will bring. But, they do know where they have been and where they want to be – together.

Travelling Tonito’s Adventures in the Sahara

What takes someone from South Africa to London to Abu Dhabi to Tripoli? As Tony Fernandes describes it: “six years of relative dullness”. Well, things are no longer dull and it’s all due to “Istanbul and some Gypsies”. Throw in some turtles, interesting taxi drivers and you have yourself an adventure (or two or more).

around the world on a toilet

Nick was a paramedic and Lianna, a travel agent. They both left their careers in Canada behind, crammed a bunch of necessary stuff into backpacks and ventured off to Asia for eight months. Guess what, whether together or separately, they haven’t stopped traveling yet. (One question… where is the toilet?)

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

    • Kiwi Blog Bus

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
