Bangkok to Siem Reap

I’ve read countless horror stories about the international journey from Bangkok to Siem Reap. The border crossing at Poi Pet is infamous for its touts and scam artists, but I can’t help but feel it’s been painted in an extremely bad light and that if you have your wits about you and do your research, then … More Bangkok to Siem Reap

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.

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

Budapest, Hungary

This post contains sponsored content. Budapest has the perfect balance of both Central and Eastern Europe that makes it unique, intriguing and always leave me wanting to return. During our 5 week trip through Europe last summer, we used Budapest and Vienna as transitional stops between the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe. The first time we visited was in … More Budapest, Hungary
