The Hagia Sophia Mosque in Istanbul
Q. Hope everything is going well with you. Nicole and I are doing our honeymoon in Turkey and I wanted to ask you a couple of questions. We are flying into Istanbul and staying there for 4 or 5 days and then we are thinking about going to Bodrum. Have you been there before? Is it cool? Is there anywhere else you would recommend over it?

The Oldest Stone Building in New Zealand, Kerikeri Bay
Kerikeri is a backpackers best and worst nightmare about 3 hours north of Auckland. If you're travelling on a budget around the North Island, Kerikeri is definetely a place you can find work. The city, like most citys in New Zealand, is pretty small and basic. There's a local supermarket, a few shops and a Mcdonalds (of course!). Unless you have a car you cant really get to the outer edges to see what little else it has to offer....theres a chocolate factory, a few prehistoric buildings and you can check out Rewa's Village - the start of a bush trail. Finally, they've got Rainbow Falls waterfall, which is nice to look at, but nothing spectacular.

Rere Falls and Champagne Pools near Gisborne
Definitely a must-do for everybody in Gisborne over summer! for the thrill seekers among you, you can spend hours here on boogie boards or rubber rings, lilos or any flotation devise racing each other down the 60 metre long natural rock slide. You definitely cant be afraid to get a bump or two but nothing serious. There's not much room around the edges there is a small picnic area but it fill fast so if you can get there early ish you & your friends will have plenty of space. once your tired or abit too bruised then you should head up the road about a 5min drive from here is one of gisbornes best kept secrets the Champagne Pools.

A view of Semuc Champey from the Mirador viewpoint
Semuc Champey is a natural attraction tucked away in the mountains of an isolated jungle in Guatemala. Situated in the town of Lanquín, get ready for a bumpy ride if you plan on visiting the pools. Semuc Champey sits above the Cahabón River, in an area where the harder rock on the surface has held strong while the river eroded the softer rock beneath. Now the pools sit a brilliant turquoise color while the muddy river runs beneath them and out the bottom of a large waterfall on the other end. The water in the pools is all rain water, which is why it’s so clear, unless it rains extremely hard for a long period of time, in which case the river may flood over the pools as well.

Your typical photo from a hot air balloon trip in Yangshuo, and how our ride started
Yangshuo is a small town along the Li River in the Guilin Area, Guangxi Province of China. The town is surrounded by hundreds of tall and narrow karst peaks. Its the perfect destination for a backpacker, lots of things to do. I recommend the Hot Air Balloon ride, however you may not want to go if rain is in the forecast (as it is frequently). Ride the boat down the Li River from Guilin, then stop off for 3-4 days in Yangshuo. Monkey Jane's hostel is a fun place to stay if you like to drink. Monkey Jane herself likes to hang out with her patrons and is a great host, shes got a bar on the roof where everyone hangs out at night.
