Copenhagen on a Budget

Copenhagen on a Budget

Scandinavia is often overlooked as a travel destination. Tales of extortionate prices and biting cold have often caused me to choose other European destinations, such as Portugal and France. When RyanAir offered super cheap flights to Copenhagen, it seemed like a fantastic time to finally […]

What I Learned Staying with a Jungle Tribe

What I Learned Staying with a Jungle Tribe

Living in the jungle with an Indonesian tribe teaches you a lot about yourself. Obviously, lots of it is rather clichéd, but that doesn’t mean it is any less important. However, I will try and avoid being too predictable here, although I’m not how successful […]

My 5 Favourite Places to Visit in Europe

My 5 Favourite Places to Visit in Europe

The longer I am away, the more I realise how amazing Europe is. The history and food are the main culprits obviously. But for me, it is also the reverence of history. One thing that has struck me about living in Seoul is how quick […]

Visiting Marrakech, Morocco

Visiting Marrakech, Morocco

I have been captivated by Morocco since I was a child. Wander the souks, dining on tagine, and relaxing by a pool with a mint tea coloured my imagination. As a teenager, the idea of Morocco was daunting. It just seemed so loud, brash and […]

A Postcard from Beijing

A Postcard from Beijing

I have often found myself in Asia, yet China has never pulled me. The rigmarole of getting a visa (and the extra cost of this) always deterred me. I am basically a lazy traveller! Living in Seoul for the past year, I am always keen […]

Salt Flats of Bolivia

Memories from A North American Road Trip

                    I thought about writing a post with advice for those considering a driving holiday across America. However, it is so long ago I’m not sure it would be particularly relevant. I was also traveling with […]

Visiting Lake Inle, Myanmar

Visiting Lake Inle, Myanmar

Myanmar is one of the most interesting, beautiful places I have visited. Only really accessible to tourists from 2010, it is still relatively untouched compared to the rest of Southeast Asia. The locals are still excited to see turtle-like tourists scurrying around. As it is […]

Shwedagon Pagoda, Myanmar

Shwedagon Pagoda, Myanmar

Yangon was one of my favourite places in Myanmar. The city is vibrant and bustling, everything you would expect from a Southeast Asian city. Unlike its counterparts in Thailand and Malaysia, it is still undeveloped. This makes it a great place to explore, although I […]

Doing a Ski Season in France

Doing a Ski Season in France

It seems like an age ago that I did a ski season in Courcheval. 3 whole years in fact, although it seems like a life time. It is still one of the best things I done, as well as one of the most utterly exhausting. […]
