New Zealand – Introducing Fellipe Hermes (Day 160 – 211)

New Zealand was a blast; for 7 weeks we traded guesthouses and B&Bs for a small campervan, whom we affectionately called Fellipe Hermes.

Despite a thorough googling, we still have no idea what COPE stands for; however, set in … More Vientiane and Luang Prabang – Bombs, Boats and Buffalo (Day 91-100)
