Where Have We Been?

So, Where is Yana and Timon?

Our travels started in December 2015 and we have been going strong since. We have enjoyed US/Canada road trips, Africa, the Middle East, Hawaii, New Zealand, and several Islands in the South Pacific. After three months in New Zealand, we set out to Fiji for some relaxing beach time. We flew to Samoa where we are currently enjoying our time in Upolu, Savaii, as well as American Samoa.

Where are we going next?

After Samoa we have one week in Vanuatu before going to Australia. We will be heading back to Hawaii to visit some family, and then return to Australia where we intend to buy a vehicle and tour the country. We are still undecided on where in Australia and how long we intend to stay. If you have any recommendation, please reach out!
