Cruising Milford Sound

by Andy @ TRAVEL-BLOG TINI & ANDY

Starting in Queenstown we passed Te Anau and continued along the scenic State Highway 94 to get to Milford. Every once in a while we made sure to stop, look around and enjoy the perfect weather and beautiful scenery. The Fjordland National Park was established in 1952 and is a vast remote wilderness and the heart of South West New Zealand World Heritage Area. It is the largest National Park in NZ with over 1.2 million hectares of conservation area. With rentals being relatively expensive during New Zealand’s peak season we decided for a small Hyundai Getz from Juicy rentals. With the left-hand traffic in NZ and the steering wheel on the right, Tini wasn’t driving on this picture: The landscapes we passed were breathtaking and since we weren’t in a hurry we stopped every now and then to take in the views: Some of NZ’s countless sheep. Perhaps these supply the wool for Icebreaker? One of our stops was at the Mirror Lakes: Small lakes provide reflective views of the Earl Mountains and waterfowl and wetland plants show against a backdrop of beech forest. View into Eglington valley with mountains rising on both sides: Climbing through the Southern Alps, State Highway 94 is one of the highest and most scenic state highways in New Zealand. From Te Anau the Milford Road leads through Fiordland National Park to Milford Sound which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Andy sneaking up to a bird for a close up picture: […]

Ushuaia – Southernmost City in the World

by Andy @ TRAVEL-BLOG TINI & ANDY

Situated on the Beagle Strait, Ushuaia is the largest city in the Argentinian province “Tierra del Fuego”, and arguably the southernmost city in the world. In the past, the town has been a missionary base, penal colony and naval base. Today Ushuaia is a major tourist town with casinos, hotels and restaurants, and commonly used as a base for hiking, winter sports and cruises to Antarctica. It was a little shocking when we arrived in Ushuaia, coming from warm and summery Buenos Aires. We were expecting cold weather, but not a vicious snow storm… Knowing we would have more time in Ushuaia on the way back, we just spent an afternoon in Ushuaia to organize our bus trip to Patagonia and buy some rain pants for our hike in the Torres del Paine National Park. Luckily the snow melted away almost as fast as it had come and in the afternoon the sky even cleared up a little allowing us to catch a glimpse of the boasting 1500 m Fuegan Andes peaks rising up in the distance behind the city: After we bought our bus tickets to Puerto Natales and finished our shopping it was time for dinner. We decided to have a Lomo sandwich with fries and a ham/veggie sandwich. What surprised us, was the size of the toast bread they used. It had no crust and was at least 15 x 15 cm. Later on we discovered that they actually sell different sizes of toast bread in the […]

Salar de Uyuni – The World’s Largest Salt Flat

by Andy @ TRAVEL-BLOG TINI & ANDY

After spending several days in Tupiza we started our 4 day Salar de Uyuni trip. This time we traveled with a 4 WD Toyota Landcruiser and 2 fellow companions from Buenos Aires, Argentina. This turned out as a very lucky incident as they were not only very friendly and helpful in translating the Spanish of our driver but also did we make new friends by the end of the trip. To give you a brief idea of the trip: We passed stunning landscapes in the Bolivian altiplano leading us above 4900 m altitude and a national reserve with breathtaking landscapes on the first three days. On the fourth day we crossed the famous and gigantic salt lake called Salar de Uyuni, before the trip ended in Uyuni. On this interactive Google map of our Salar Uyuni trip you can get a pretty good overview of the route of our trip. (If you wait for it to load you can zoom in on all parts of the trip; be careful when using the mouse wheel for scrolling while the mouse cursor is located on the map!) Click here for the map The elevation profile of our 4 day trip: But before we started we already had to deal with some annoying local Bolivian events! Starting from Tupiza we suffered from a total city blockage by the local taxi drivers, fighting for god knows what. In any case they blocked all streets leading into the city and forced us to leave the […]

Confession: I Don’t Want To Be So Frugal Anymore

Real talk, guys: 2017 was not the best year for this blog.

The 5th year of Frugal Frolicker was actually the first year that website traffic didn’t increase. Worse than that, I just felt disconnected from the blog most of the time, which often made it difficult to write.

Lac Abbé in Djibouti: apocalypse wow

by Peter @ Atlas & Boots

Lac Abbé in Djibouti is sensational, desolate and completely apocalyptic in appearance. Visiting this eerie moonscape is a surreal experience like no other on Earth.

It turns out that the 1968 film Planet of the Apes – as proudly proclaimed by several guidebooks, numerous blogs, countless Djiboutian tour guides and even international newspapers – wasn’t actually filmed in Lac Abbé in Djibouti. The producers didn’t even leave the Western United States.

This is a crying shame because firstly, Lac Abbé really is a suitably apocalyptic filming location; and secondly, there goes Djibouti’s only claim to fame.

tindy’s Travel Facts & Figures of Polynesia, NZ and Australia

by Tini @ TRAVEL-BLOG TINI & ANDY

By now our faithful followers will know what to expect after releasing our last post of Australia. Exactly: “tindy’s Travel Facts & Figures”. So before taking off to Asia here our review and some statistics: Sleeping: In total we spent 81 nights in French Polynesia, New Zealand and Australia. 60 of them we stayed in hotels, hostels or bungalows. For example this nice bungalow on Huahine: 10 nights we spent under the open sky, camping. All of them during our time in NZ: 6 nights we stayed with friends of friends in Sydney (Thank you, Moni & Phil!): 2 airplane/airport related nights: 1 night we spent at the airport of Tahiti and 1 in a plane from Tahiti to Auckland: 2 nights we spent on the ocean, sleeping on our sailboat the Ragamuffin II during our Whitsunday sailing cruise: 1 night (mysteriously) went missing (the one of the 4th of January 2014)! It didn’t exist for us since we crossed the date line from French Polynesia to New Zealand. So our 2014 will only have 364 days… 😉 Way of Travel: We traveled by airplane 11 times. For one thing the island hopping in French Polynesia was more comfy by airplane and later on in New Zealand and especially in Australia the distances were so vast that flying saved both time and money. On the islands of French Polynesia we traveled by bus, scooter, car and bike. In New Zealand we drove 2’224 kilometers with our red rental Getzi. At […]

Sihanoukville’s Sandy Beaches

by Andy @ TRAVEL-BLOG TINI & ANDY

Almost sixty years ago a French-Cambodian construction endeavor carved a camp out of the jungle and started building Cambodia’s first deep-sea port at the Gulf of Thailand. After the Vietnamese further restricted Cambodia’s access to the Mekong river, this port provided Cambodia with a sea port for international trade. In the 1960s the booming port was named Sihanoukville, after the ruling Prime Minister and Prince of Cambodia “Norodom Sihanouk”. Its white-sand beaches soon drew Cambodia’s upper class, spawned the first Angkor beer brewery and the modernist seven-story Independence Hotel. After a five hour bus ride on a bumpy road from Phnom Penh we arrived in Sihanoukville and headed straight to Serendipity Beach: The sun was already setting and we enjoyed some cool beer right at the ocean front: The location proved really nice and we decided to have dinner here as well: Next day we started exploring the town but temperatures rose quickly and we soon decided to continue exploring in the evening and instead head to the beach. We found a nice spot and spread out our towels. The beach was visited by about just as many tourists as Cambodians. But sizzling in the sun we noticed that while the Cambodians did not only lie at the beach fully dressed, they even went swimming in their outfits. Passing us we felt their stares as they rubbernecked and weren’t quite sure if it was our white skin or Tini’s decollete they kept admiring. After a swim and refreshing in the […]

Phnom Penh – The Pearl of Asia

by Andy @ TRAVEL-BLOG TINI & ANDY

Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital and largest city is located on the banks of Tonle Sap, Bassac and Mekong river. Its fate started as a small monastery on a hill in the year 1272 when it was founded by the Khmer woman Penh, after she found four Buddha statues in a tree trunk on the banks of the Mekong river. The Cambodian word for hill is Phnom and therefore the name “Phnom Penh” translates as “Hill of Penh”. In contrast to Angkor which was mainly influenced by Hinduism, Phnom Penh’s history was dominated by Buddhism. After the Siamese (today’s Thai) conquered Angkor in 1421 the Khmer aristocracy which were unwilling to submit to the Siamese overlords fled from Angkor and established Phnom Penh as the new Khmer capital in 1424. However the Khmer never succeeded in establishing a new kingdom coming close to the glamour of Angkor. For long periods the Khmer kingdom centered in Phnom Penh wasn’t even a sovereign country but more like a satellite state or even directly ruled by the Vietnamese or the Siamese. For more than 400 years, politics in Phnom Penh was an act of balance between the two powerful neighbors, always trying to avoid Siam (Thailand) and Vietnam to entirely divide Cambodia between them. In 1864 the Cambodian king Norodom accepted the status of a French protectorate, preempting moves of Siam and Vietnam of annexing Cambodia. During almost 90 years of colonial rule the French reshaped and extended Phnom Penh according to their architectural […]

Sailing the Whitsundays, Arr! Arr!

by Andy @ TRAVEL-BLOG TINI & ANDY

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do, than those you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain Exploring new places, adventures, fresh salty air, silently gliding through waters, coral reefs, turtles popping their heads through waves, deserted beaches and watching the red sun set into the ocean. These were the things we had in the back of our mind when we signed up for a three day Whitsunday sailing cruise. After our “extensive preparation” the day to set sail had arrived and we headed for the harbor to become acquainted with our new home for the next three days. Our yacht was the Ragamuffin II, a 16 meter ex-racing yacht designed for the Admirals Cup by Ben Lexcen, Australia’s famous Americas Cup Yacht-Designer and built by yachtsman Syd Fischer. After competing in races around the world, including the “Admirals Cup” and “The Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race” she finally settled in the Whitsundays: Our skipper Dave welcomed us aboard and gave us a short introduction about the dos and don’ts after distributing the bunks. Not that spacious for 12 passengers and 2 crew members… We’d all have to cuddle up a bit during the next three days 😉 We left Airlie Beach harbor and set out for sailing the Whitsunday Islands. The Whitsundays consist of 74 islands located in the middle of the World Heritage Listed Great […]

Mekong Delta Cruise

by Tini @ TRAVEL-BLOG TINI & ANDY

Our tour to the Mekong Delta started shortly past 7am when we were picked up at the hotel and drove for about 2 hours to Ben Tre, a gateway to the delta. We boarded a small boat and started our private sightseeing tour through the waterways of the Mekong Delta which literally means “Nine Dragon River Delta”. The delta encompasses the region in southwestern Vietnam where the Mekong River approaches and empties into the sea through a network of water channels. It is also known as the rice bowl of Vietnam because of its huge rice production of over 23 million tons of rice which is more than half of Vietnam’s total rice production. Besides this the delta is also well known as the most important fishing region and supplies the population with crops and fruits. Overall the delta plays a very important role in supplying Vietnam with food. Our first stop was at a family owned brick-works. Here we got an insight how the bricks are formed and crafted from clay of the Mekong Delta. The final product ready to be sold: This machine is fed with clay from the top and spits out a continues brick-sausage which is manually cut into the single brick: Then they are stored to dry: The beehives in the back are huge furnaces (called kiln) in which the bricks are hardened at over 1000°C: Once the bricks have been manually loaded into the kiln which can hold around 150’000 bricks, the furnace is […]

My Pathway to Becoming a Nurse In Australia

by noreply@blogger.com (katrina paz campomanes) @ katmeifyoucan

A couple of my friends have urged me to come to Australia. At first, I was hesitant to try as there are a lot of requirements and fees that need to be covered. Finally, I realized that while I am still somehow young, I should try. Metaphorically it was like climbing a mountain for me. But I did not climb it all in one day. What I did is to do things, big or small everyday just to achieve what I want. Here is a summary of what I did.

1. Take IELTS- This is the very first step to be able to enroll to a school. This will also help to get work and visa in the future. For nurses, we are required to get an overall band of 7. An overall band score of 8 is desired if you would like to have higher points for the Skilled Migration Points System (for 189 visa).

2. While waiting and praying for the IELTS result, gather requirements asked for by Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). The form to be accomplished is AGOS 40 and is readily available at their website. It is a  straightforward and clear form.

3. Once IELTS results are in and it is satisfactory, have all documents certified as true copy and mail these to AHPRA together with the form. Do not staple all the documents. Also, it will be asking you to include how you would like to pay the total fee of 520 AUD.

4. Wait for AHPRA's email. Sometimes they will email if they need further documents. Otherwise, they will email to let you know of their decision/ recommendation. In my case, I was recommended to proceed to an NMBA (bridging) program.

5. Look for a school that fits the budget and is reputable for the program asked for. My friend studied at IHNA Melbourne so I also chose the same school but I studied in Perth. You will be asked for a set of documents again including immunizations. They can all be sent via email. 

6. Depending on the school, pay for their admin fee and they will give you back a confirmation of enrollment. This will reflect that a slot has been reserved. Their slots were filling up fast so I chose the earliest which was February 2017.

7. You can now start to process for your visa. The school has advised me to get a Visa subclass 600 good for 3 months of studying. I created an online immigration account and followed the instructions. Then, I had a HAP ID as reference to have my medical tests done. I paid 135 AUD for my visa which I got after 3 weeks.

8. Next up was to look for flights and accommodations. The school was offering an accommodation for 200 AUD per week which was expensive. I asked help from family and friends. Luckily, my sister had a classmate living in Perth and I was able to stay at their house. For the flights, it was about 5 months before I had to fly so my ticket to Perth via Singapore was not quite breaking the bank.

9. Save money and make sure that all documents were sent to the school before coming over. I couldn't stress this enough.

10. Pack clothes fit for the season that you are coming. At the same time, make sure that you are within your allowed baggage. This proved to be difficult for me. I had quite a number of things that I really had to leave behind. 

11. Arrive in Australia a few days ahead of the start of classes. This would give time to look around and familiarize with the transport as well as get a simcard, open a bank account and settle in.

12. Be prompt on the first day (and all days). I met Filipino classmates for the program and was happy to make new friendships. Almost half of the class were Indians, and there were about 3 Europeans.

13. Study and work hard to achieve the assessments and requirements of the school and practicum.

14. After the bridging program, gather necessary requirements and accomplish AGBP 40 form from the AHPRA website. Pay the amount of 300 AUD along with their form. I personally went to the AHPRA office in Perth to submit my papers but these can also be sent via post. 

15. Wait for a couple of weeks and they will email you if you need to present more documents or that you have passed all requirements and that you are now a registered nurse! Congratulations!

I still have a long way to go as it is quite difficult to score a company that sponsors a work visa but I know that with God's grace I can make it.

Thank you for reading and 'til next blog :)
