Chiang Rai, Thailand

Five years after planning my first trip to East Asia, today I finally made it to a place I never managed to get to. I have long been in awe of the architectural wonder that is the White Temple (Wat Rong Khun) in Chiang Rai, and to finally see it in person was an experience … More Chiang Rai, Thailand

Vienna, Austria

There’s little to nothing about Vienna that I don’t adore. Last time we visited, on a day trip from Budapest, we only had a few hours to cram in as much as possible. It was cold, raining and we were both a little grumpy thanks to a 5am start to the day. I remember being marvelled … More Vienna, Austria

Bagan, Myanmar

Bagan is undoubtedly one of the places I most looked forward to when planning our trip. An untouched ancient city in the middle of Myanmar (Burma), it’s home to thousands upon thousands of temples spanning centuries of construction. In the summer months you can hot air balloon over the temples at sunset and sunrise, hire … More Bagan, Myanmar

New York City, NY

This was my third visit to New York, and my first time being there on such a tight budget. The first time I went, I had just turned 19 and visited for around a week with my two friends (click here to read). The next time I visited, I stayed for just over two weeks … More New York City, NY

Kandy, Sri Lanka

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

Ao Nang, Thailand

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

Amsterdam, Netherlands

I really try to be as honest as possible when I’m writing my travel posts. I thoroughly enjoy writing, especially about travelling, but I have more than a handful of locations in my ‘Destinations’ tab that consist merely of a few sentences about the place. Usually (in every instance) this is because Paul and I have drank … More Amsterdam, Netherlands

Antwerp, Belgium 

When I was planning our trip to Brussels I knew I wanted to incorporate day trips to both Antwerp and Amsterdam into the itinerary. After studying Flemish art and the Renaissance in Northern Europe extensively at university in St Andrews I had racked up more than a few churches, buildings and sculptures I wanted to explore in all three cities.
