I’ll be adding to this collection of photographs over my year long stay here, but if you’d like to see any of my posts on South Korea, click here.
I’ve been using an old phone for the past week or so and rediscovered all of these photographs from my trip to Sri Lanka that I never got around to uploading to my site. I’ll be writing a full travel post for Kandy and how to get there from Colombo and Ella over the coming … More Kandy, Sri Lanka
I’ve travelled to Ao Nang twice over the last few years, on both occasions as a stop between travelling between East and Western Thailand. On my first visit to Southeast Asia in 2015, we stopped in Ao Nang halfway through our ten week trip as a way to regroup and relax. When exploring the islands … More Ao Nang, Thailand

It cost a pretty unbelievable 250,000 rupiahs each, or £10, for our transport there and back, a complimentary breakfast and a guide for the day. We had been quoted quite a few prices around … More Batur, Bali

The process at airports for us, as first time travellers, was extremely long winded and complex. After clearing immigration and collecting our bags we were faced … More Beijing, China
We flew with Lao airlines from Luang Prabang to Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand, and the flight took only an hour whereas on land the journey takes over a day, so I’d really recommend it. Getting from the airport to the hotel was also easier than any place we’ve visited so far. Directly outside the arrivals … More Chiang Mai, Thailand
