Welcome to Starry Nights & Insect Bites!

We are Chris & Charlie

Starry Nights & Insect Bites is an account of our journey from England to Singapore (and beyond) in our Land Rover Discovery 2.

We want to use this to share the highs and the lows of our adventure and to create what we hope will be a useful toolbox of resources for others wanting to embark on a similar trip.

📍 Current Location: Hobart, TAS, Australia (24/11/20)

We’ve been “stuck” in the beautiful state of Tasmania since mid-March due to COVID-19. Our original aim to spend a year travelling around the whole of Australia has unfortunately not been possible, and like many people, our plans have changed. We patiently waited out lockdown followed by winter, and since mid September we have been travelling around Tasmania, seeing as much of the state as we can before we fly back to the UK in December.

Touring Tasmania:
Overnight stops 20/09/20 – 27/10/20
