Ella, Sri Lanka

Of all the places we visited in Sri Lanka, Ella was the strangest combination of the most tourist concentrated and the most peaceful place we visited. When I initially started to plan our trip, Ella was one of the locations that struck me as one of the most incredible and untouched landscapes I had ever … More Ella, Sri Lanka

Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

In a hungover stupor we slept in too late to catch the last bus from Hanoi, meaning we had to get the train from there to Haiphong. The train cost only £2 each and had exceptional views of the countryside. Paddies followed by paddies followed by paddies. It was such a beautiful, unintended way of … More Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

Ha Noi, Vietnam

Our time in Hanoi was short lived but wonderful. I have never seen so many mopeds or bikes in my entire life – it’s absolute chaos, but amazing everyone manoeuvres around one another smoothly, and you actually feel safe after the first five minutes of horror. We stayed in the Old Quarter of the city, … More Ha Noi, Vietnam

The harbour is lined with traditional Thai longboats, the water crystal clear and the limestone rock, rich with trees and wildlife, towers over the island in every direction. There were no cars, no … More Koh Phi Phi, Thailand

Kuta, Bali

Our second last week was the ‘holiday’ at the end of our holiday – a week in Bali. To say Bali was everything I expected would be selling it short – boasting stunning hotels, beaches, and an impressive nightlife. However, the people are charming, helpful, and welcoming – a refreshing group of qualities after travelling … More Kuta, Bali

Luang Prabang, Laos

The atmosphere was so different to anywhere we had visited so far – quiet, relaxed, and the people, locals or otherwise, were incredibly welcoming and warm. Luang Prabang is suitable to the size of Laos and absolutely minuscule in terms of land mass. It was beyond refreshing after several weeks of big cities swarming with … More Luang Prabang, Laos
