A Year Of Travel: My Highlights

It feels strange to say that we’ve been travelling for a year. Because, I suppose, we haven’t. It’s a year since we left the UK, sure, but we’ve made a little home for ourselves in the sub-tropical city of Brisbane, and while we’ve been making various trips around Australia, it’s not been the full-on travel… Continue reading A Year Of Travel: My Highlights

Budgeting For Your Southeast Asia Trip

In this post, I’m going to outline exactly how much this part of the trip cost us, and hopefully it will help some of you to budget what you need.

My Top 5 Places From Our South East Asia Trip

Hanoi, Vietnam This was (almost) hands down our absolute favourite place. Maybe it’s because it was our first taste of real backpacker culture, maybe it was the fact we made great friends there, or maybe it was the cheap, cheap beer, but we full on ADORED this city! We stayed in the Old Quarter, which… Continue reading My Top 5 Places From Our South East Asia Trip

After a journey back to Phnom Penh (involving a two lane road turning into 5 lanes of traffic) and a night at the cutely named Lovely Jubbly hostel (not as good as Mad Monkey but a dollar cheaper), we were headed to the one place everyone heads to in Cambodia: Angkor Wat. Our bus plonked… Continue reading An Incredible Week in Siem Reap: Angkor Wat and Meditating With a Monk

A Relaxing Time In Sihanoukville After The Heartache Of The Capital

Our second day in Phnom Penh was spent at the equally difficult Tuol Sleng prison, where we met one of just seven survivors, Chum Mey. Most of his β€œinmates” were taken to the nearby killing fields, if they lasted that long. We therefore used our evenings to drown our sorrows, and sadly after all the… Continue reading A Relaxing Time In Sihanoukville After The Heartache Of The Capital

A Difficult Visit To The Killing Fields Of Cambodia

This is going to be one of the hardest posts I’ll have to write, which might explain why it’s taken me so long! We arrived in Cambodia having heard story after story of people being mugged, people having their bags slashed from their shoulders by passing motorcyclists, people having everything taken from them during a… Continue reading A Difficult Visit To The Killing Fields Of Cambodia
