Batur, Bali

Halfway through our stay in Ubud we booked a day excursion to hike Mount Batur in the centre of the island. 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

Beijing, China

After two entire days of travelling from Glasgow to London to Kiev to Beijing, we finally arrived at our first destination of our nine week trip through East Asia. 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

Capri, Italy

Last summer, during our visit to the Amalfi Coast, we took a day trip to Capri with the Caremar ferry from Naples. Our choice not to stay on the island, or in any of the other towns like Sorrento or Positano mainly had to do with costs, and as two students backpacking for more than two months we thought it … More Capri, Italy

Carlisle, England

Being home for the majority of the summer has gave us the opportunity to explore so many of the places a little more close to home. Last week when we had a rare good weather day, we decided to take a road trip down to Carlisle for a few hours. Just south of the border, … More Carlisle, England

Chiang Mai, Thailand

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
