    Best non-touristy things to do/see in New Zealand and Australia?

    Hey Kim, Sounds like a mad trip coming up! I haven't been to the North Island of New Zealand, but I did an 11 day road-trip from Christchurch to Queenstown, via Arthur's Pass, Lake Tekapo, Mount Cook, and Milford Sound in January this year. Will you be hiring a car in New Zealand or Australia? I go camping up the northern NSW coast most weekends, so can provide you with some off-the-beaten-track destinations or ideas, but first I'd need to know if you've got a hire car and camping gear, or if you're staying in hostels along the way!

    Where to see forest animals / attractions with elderly people?

    Hey Violet, I went to Kota Kinabalu a few years back with my family – including my (at the time) 83 year old grandmother and 80 year old pop. We went to the Nature Reserve at Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort (fancy, I know). It was a steep and very warm hike up a lot of stairs to the feeding platform, but nan managed to battle through it pretty well. Afterwards the cafe was nice to chill out and have a bite to eat/cold drink before heading on the bus back to where we were staying. I took a day trip (flight from Sabah to Sandakan) to see the Sepilok Rehabilitation centre. It was quite a pricey trip, and we only saw one or two organutans. I'd suggest skipping that if you're short on budget. Again, this was a few years back, but my best suggestion would be to head to the Shangri La (You don't have to stay there, just check pricing for the day trip). Enjoy the trip! 7 months ago

    Worldnomad guide as pdf

    Hi Jens, thanks for your question! Do you have the latest iOS software? If so, use Safari to access the guide after signup, and you should see a "share" button third from the right on the nav bar (next to the URL). This opens a menu which has two rows of options. The top allows you to copy it to various file-sharing systems (eg. Google Drive or Dropbox). The second row should have some new functions such as "Create PDF" and "Save to Files", which will allow you to save the document for offline use. Another way would be to download the PDF on a Desktop and email the file to yourself which you can open on your iPad. Hope this helps! 7 months ago

    Reputable campervan rental companies in Australia?

    100% go by van! Everyone said to me that it'd be expensive, and if we wanted to save money we should hire a car and stay in hotels, but boy were we glad we didn't! Again, go diesel option for sure in New Zealand, they have a few sneaky road taxes for petrol vehicles. When are you doing the road trip in NZ? 10 months ago

    Australia itinerary direction advice

    I'm pro camping! You'll enjoy the trip so much more, and there's nothing like sitting in the van (rain, hail or shine) watching the sun go down, and rise first thing in the morning! You just can't get that freedom when you're staying in hostels and motels. If you've got the budget to go by van, go by van and do the camping - but if you need to save money, certainly hire a car and search for cheap hostels. Just keep in mind some of the best off-the-beaten-track destinations (national parks and day hikes) won't be anywhere near hostels, so if adventure/outdoors is your thing, I suggest you make the most of the trip and go with the van.
