The first time I visited Ao Nang in 2015 it was my last stop in Thailand before heading south for Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. Let me say that the nineteen hour bus journey (we were picked up around 11am and arrived in Kuala Lumpur at 6am the following morning) is not for the faint-hearted, but … More Ao Nang to Kuala Lumpur
The Hungarian and Austrian capitals are both two of my highest recommendations for places to see in Europe. If you have more than a few days to spend in either, then taking a day trip from one to the next takes only a couple of hours. Vienna is one of the continent’s most architecturally decorative … More Budapest to Vienna
For this month’s cheap flights post there are a bunch of brand new locations on the list. Of course, because we’re getting closer to summer the price range has increased by £10-£15 compared to other weeks but thanks to budget airlines like easyJet and Ryanair.

We timed our visit to Florence so that my 21st birthday fell during our stay there, thanks to my very accommodating and very lax other half. We stayed for … More Florence, Italy
Our first of twenty European cities this summer was Lisbon. I bought the flights for Paul as part of his birthday present, and soon enough our ‘little’ European trip grew arms and legs (we’re away for nine weeks again this year – the first five of those will be spent across various European countries and … More Lisbon, Portugal
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
