Your Itinerary for the Perfect Utah Road Trip

There are few things I love more than a good old road trip. I love cruising along, wind in my hair, not a care in the world, etc. (ok, it doesn’t always go like that, but it’s always a good time!). While I have managed to explore a lot of…

Where to Stay in Bristol: Bumper Bristol Accommodation Guide

It’s no secret how much I love Bristol – I’ve been around the world (I’m repressing the urge to break into Lisa Stansfield lyrics here) and it’s still my favourite city. Yes, from travels over all six continents, Bristol still comes out number one. It might have some sentimental attachment…

Things To Do On Your Darwin Layover: One Day in Darwin

Sitting at just over 1000 miles from Bali, it’s no surprise that Darwin is many people’s first point of call in Australia. Some travellers stop there for a while, while others scoot on through to the bigger, livelier cities of Sydney and Melbourne. In fact, many people think that there…

Two Days in Singapore Itinerary for First Timers

Singapore as a city definitely took me by surprise. A lot of people are very skeptical about including Singapore in their South East Asian itineraries, mainly due to concerns about it being expensive and thinking its small size means there isn’t much to do there. Admittedly, the first time I visited…

Is Halong Bay in December Worth It?

Wonderful Halong Bay is probably Vietnam’s most iconic travel destination. Famed by its glorious karst stones, visitors to Halong Bay can enjoy kayaking, swimming and learning about local life while witnessing the spectacular scenery from a luxury cruise liner.

How to get the train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai

I don’t know why I found getting the train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai so difficult. I’ve taken chicken buses through Guatemala, I’ve travelled by train all around China and I’ve taken international coaches through Europe. But for some reason, I just seemed to mess up everything about the train…
