Best Travel Water Bottles

It should be no surprise that having the best travel water bottle is important to us. We have talked about how plastic is destroying our planet many times on our site, and take notice when hotels make a push to reduce plastic water bottles and opt for water filtration systems instead. However, we can not solely rely on businesses to make the shift to reducing plastic use, we as the consumer have to as well. That means carrying a great water bottle. Besides saving the environment from plastic waste, staying hydrated is essential when traveling. It’s easy to neglect your body … Read More

Best Packing Cubes

Living on the road means we pack and unpack our bags a lot, as in a couple times a week. Packing can be a total drag, but we both invested in some of the best packing cubes we could find and it saves us a lot of time. We were skeptical when we first bought something to organize our bags. However, we have to be honest, it’s two years later and we are going strong in the same packing cubes. After about a year of having a fantastic packing experience every other morning with my cubes, I had the genius idea … Read More

The cost to travel Africa

I came to Africa excited for the culture, the wildlife, and the landscapes. Now, I’m just trying not go broke. Don’t get me wrong I’m still excited about traveling the continent, but Africa is far from a cheap holiday destination. For a continent filled with developing nations, one would think the cost of traveling Africa would be relatively cheap. My god that couldn’t be further from the truth. Self-driving Africa has single handily been our most expensive endeavor yet and that is including our trip around Western Europe and Australia. However, it’s always been a dream of mine so I … Read More

Save the World While Traveling

I may be a bit behind, but I finally managed to watch Before The Flood. The movie produced by Leonardo Dicaprio as he explores the threats facing human kind from climate change. The movie was available for free streaming for a few weeks – but I’m in the African bush and streaming is a luxury! You can usually find us with active voices of being more sustainable travelers. We try to maintain a small footprint when we are traveling and in just everyday life. Throughout Africa, we are either camping or highlighting the many eco-lodges around the continent. However, Leo’s movie struck a cord … Read More

The Perfect African Honeymoon

First things first – Cameron and I are not married, nor are we engaged. However, given that we are a traveling couple in our mid-twenties we get asked quite a bit about honeymoon destinations. The question “where would you recommend for our honeymoon?” pops up in our inbox often and we love shedding light on the subject. Many North Americans turn to the Caribbean or Europe given the close proximity to North America. For similar reasons, Australians may turn to Southeast Asia for the perfect getaway. These continents are fantastic! We love sipping cappuccinos in Italy, dancing through the streets … Read More

Buying a car in South Africa

So the big announcement is out! We are officially driving across Africa in “Charlie,” our newest addition to The World Pursuit family. The 1989 Land Cruiser is awesome! He is a workhorse, a 4×4 Tonka trunk equipped with a bush bar, roof rack, and pull out drawers. Like others, you may be wondering what he cost so let’s just get how much the cost out of the way. Charlie cost us a whopping 60,000 ZAR or about $4300 USD.  Never mind the cost, though. What was more of the issue were two Americans trying to buy a car in South Africa. I … Read More

I want to Travel the World

We just crossed the border from South Africa over to Namibia. I am over the moon with excitement for what this trip through the Namibian desert will bring. However, it is also a milestone for me because I have now set foot in and traveled through 50 countries! I know that numbers don’t matter and many travelers choose not to “count countries”, but I have always found that setting a goal pushes me to travel the world. Long ago, I told myself I would see the world. Having traveled to 50 countries I have now been in more than 25% of the … Read More
