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

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

Our Final Weekend In Thailand: Undiscovered Khanom

Our final two days in Thailand involved a lot of travelling, much to Ash's annoyance. The reason behind this was that a friend of mine from school is teaching in Thailand, and it seemed silly not to visit him. We had ended up arranging to meet at a beach party he was going to in… Continue reading Our Final Weekend In Thailand: Undiscovered Khanom

Krabi, Railay and the Most Beautiful Beach in the World, and Climbing 1200 Steps to a Temple

We were sad to leave Koh Lanta for several reasons: our hostel family were so incredibly friendly, we were going to miss a lot of our room mates, though most of them were also leaving, and the sense of welcome and chilled out vibe were what made us fall in love with the place. But… Continue reading Krabi, Railay and the Most Beautiful Beach in the World, and Climbing 1200 Steps to a Temple

And Then We Fell In Love With Koh Lanta

Our overnight ferry from Koh Tao was surprisingly comfortable - I'm no stranger to overnight ferries having to use them to get from Orkney, and this was a better sleep experience. It was a cargo ferry with no entertainment, no bar, and no couches like Orkney's ferry - but we got beds! For free! So… Continue reading And Then We Fell In Love With Koh Lanta
