Hakuna matata – Kenya Style

Kenya is awesome! Let’s first start with that. This was my favorite country on the trip and we are already planning on when we can come back. But let’s start at the beginning… We arrived in Kenya on Monday afternoon and Bill opened this leg the following morning. The one difference is that Monday night…

The Oasis of Oman

After a gruelingly hot day in India we finally made it to Oman around 11pm and immediately went to bed. That day was a very interesting day as we had breakfast in Singapore, lunch in India and dinner in Oman.. Awesome! The next morning Bill opened the leg and we all spent about an hour…

Pitstop in India

On our way to Oman we had an 8 hour layover in Chennai, India and we went out into the city to complete a few scavenges. It was 56 degrees Celsius.. So please forgive the ridiculously sweaty photos. Below is a short montage of photos of us having lunch, visiting a bazaar and then climbing…

Stunning Singapore

We arrived in Singapore around 4pm after a long 7 hour flight and I won’t lie we were all feeling very tired. We were those teams that pushed our selves so hard in the first 2 legs and now we’re feeling the effects. I will say that our hard work in Japan payed off as…

Tokyo Touchdown

Just a quick update to let you know we arrived safely in Tokyo. After grueling 20 hours of travelling we are happy to be in this new and wonderful place. Luckily most of the group got tickets in the back of the plane which was pretty empty and we got to stretch out. I purposely…

Lucha Libres, tequila and baby dolls hanging from trees

So I woke up the first official morning of the Global Scavenger Hunt and… I’m wasn’t feeling well. The mixture of some stomach issues and a very bad headache left me feeling very frustrated and anxious that I wouldn’t be able to complete the day. However after some peptobismol (the secret weapon of any traveller),…

First stop Mexico City

We are finally here at the start of the Global Scavenger Hunt 2016. We left Barbados Thursday afternoon for Miami where we picked up some last minute items, had a short sleep and then were back on a plane by 7am on our way to Mexico City. The drive to the hotel was the first…

The Global Scavenger Hunt 2016

So… we are about to depart on our next big adventure, and this one may be the most exciting and anxiety-inducing trip yet. Chris and I are a team in this year’s Global Scavenger Hunt which begins in just under a week in Mexico City, Mexico. This is a annual competitor put together by founders…
