Haphazard hitchhiking, Breathtaking beaches, and one Surreal Solar Eclipse!
Timor Leste is one of the newest countries in the world and that has come with many challenges. While the country is struggling to recover from centuries of colonialism, its people remain jolly, kind, and incredibly optimistic.
Timor Leste is known for its coffee production, its pristine beaches offering limitless snorkeling and diving opportunities, and for a brief 76 seconds on 20 April 2023 – for being the best place to watch a Total Solar Eclipse!
