We are a couple from Australia and the UK, based in London. We are lucky enough to be able to spend time travelling the world. This is a little journal sharing our travel advice, thoughts, feelings, laughs, photos and regrets from all the places we have visited. This isn't a glossy, perfect travel blog but an opportunity for us to share with you the best places that we have been, the best food we have eaten, the best photographs we have taken and the best adventures we have had so far but it also includes the things we didn't like so much so hopefully you can learn from our triumphs and mistakes!

San Jose has a bit of a bad reputation and a lot of the reading we did before we came suggested spending as little time as possible there and only really use it as necessary to travel around the rest of the country. We did use it as a travel hub but the three times we stayed we made sure to do it for at least 2 nights each time. San Jose...
