TeamLab Borderless

When you are in the full flow of work, it is easy to find yourself in a rut where each weekend becomes a carbon copy of the one before. Sleep, eat and a short walk to somewhere local for a stock up. However every now and again you plan something interesting to break the routine…

Hoshinoya Karuizawa

2018 has been quite the travel year so far. The summer was a huge step for us but in all the excitement and planning I forgot to write about the little side trip we went on at the start of the year. February was the perfect opportunity for us to explore yet another of the…

Tam Coc, Ninh Binh

On the morning of our departure to Ninh Binh I woke up feeling ill. The dreaded travelling tummy problems had finally got me and to put it bluntly… I didn’t think I could make the 2 hour journey to the our next stop gracefully. Ninh Binh has rapidly become a top tourist attraction, offering the…

Hanoi and Ha Long Bay

Our last stop was north Vietnam where we would be based for 8 nights exploring the capital city Hanoi, Ha Long Bay and Ninh Binh. We arrived in Hanoi at night via a Vietnam Airlines flight sandwiched between a group of American High School students feeling pretty old. We progressed through immigration with relative ease…

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Now I am not going to lie and say that leaving the safety and cleanliness of Singapore to jet off to Cambodia wasn’t a little nerve-racking. Just like Bangkok, a range of thoughts were trailing through my mind on the short 2hr flight to Siem Reap, about the water, getting ill, what would I eat?…

Singapore

After a short 2hr 30min flight from Bangkok, we arrived in Singapore. Straight away there was a clear difference in the feel of the place. Immigration was slower but seeing more food and drink from home was a pleasant surprise. Immigration was so slow that when we finally got through, our luggage was off the…

A Nervous Traveller in Bangkok!

Soon after planning our holiday travelling to 4 parts of south-east Asia over three weeks, I wrote a post titled “A Time to Travel…”. It was here I stated how I wanted see more of the countries that we visit on a more personal level instead of ‘window shopping’ through the safety of a 4…

Cafe Reissue and Hotel Graphy.

I always feel that I have a world of great cafes, restaurants and hotels on my doorstep that I am not taking advantage of so I decided to do some research and make a list of some places to visit this break. The first was a cafe I saw on an instagram account @taramilktea called…

Time to Travel…

I am always thinking about my next holiday and as such I have started reading a lot of travel blogs but they are all written by people who are either back packers with a “passion for travel” and have found ways to leave their homes to live a life of eternal exploration or they are…

Hawaii

When I compare 2017 to the last three years it has been the quietest yet. We have had the fewest visitors, done the least amount of travelling and things have been… well, normal. That doesn’t mean to say it has been boring and actually I am quite proud of some of the things we have…
