My Travel Adventures

Siem Reap

CAMBODIA | Friday, 6 Feb 2015 | Views [314]

From Phnom Penh we embarked on an 8 hour bus ride along the extremely bumpy and underdeveloped road to Siem Reap. It definitely had the feeling of a Ghanaian bus trip! We finally arrived in Siem Reap to stay in the best hotel yet on the trip! We were ... Read more >

Phnom Penh

CAMBODIA | Friday, 6 Feb 2015 | Views [251]

So after an amazing 12 days in Vietnam I headed to Cambodia, a country I have wanted to visit for a very long time! We boarded a bus and said goodbye to our Vietnamese guide at the border. A bit of an odd border crossing - we got a visa on arrival, ... Read more >

Saigon / Ho Chi Minh City

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 3 Feb 2015 | Views [231]

Saigon & Ho Chi Minh City - same same but different. The further south you travel in Vietnam the more Western it gets. But nothing prepared me for the stark difference between Hanoi and Saigon. Completely different cities! Both cities are undoubtably ... Read more >

Nha Trang

VIETNAM | Friday, 30 Jan 2015 | Views [188]

Next stop on our trip was Nha Trang. A must do tourist destination that is all about R&R. Massages, restaurants, banana lounges, beautiful beach, water park, snorkelling... This list goes on! After round two on the overnight reunification express ... Read more >

Hoi An

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 27 Jan 2015 | Views [187]

Shopping, shopping, shopping with a bit of culture thrown in is how I would describe Hoi An. It is the perfect place to pick up souvenirs, get a dress made or to just chill out in one of the restaurants overlooking the river. Our transportation to ... Read more >

Hue (pronounced ‘hway’)

VIETNAM | Friday, 23 Jan 2015 | Views [206]

So the Reunification Express train - great cabins, beds were a good size and toilets not that bad. We thought it was great when we got on - until of course the first mouse was spotted!! Throughout the night a team of mice caused havoc throughout the ... Read more >

Halong Bay

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 20 Jan 2015 | Views [189]

An eerily beautiful boat trip in Halong Bay with epic scenery will definitely be a highlight of this trip. Would be great to see it in summer time with the sun shining but the fogginess gave the trip a 'pirates of the caribbean' feel which is hard to ... Read more >


VIETNAM | Sunday, 18 Jan 2015 | Views [201]

So after a very long journey I have arrived in the capital city of Vietnam - Hanoi! This is my first real venture into South East Asia. The few mishaps so far have been delays in flights, no ATMs, the most hectic and chaotic driving system I have ... Read more >

POLAND | Tuesday, 12 Nov 2013 | Views [336]

Spending a week in Poland due to the fact that it was the cheapest flight out of Israel was a great idea! While the temperature difference to Israel was a joke it is so freaking cheap! My first few nights were spent in the royal capital of Krakow.... Read more >

Hebron, West Bank.

PALESTINE | Wednesday, 6 Nov 2013 | Views [223]

Okay, so I felt that my one day in Palestine deserved a seperate post. When I told my parents that I was going to Israel mum of course freaked. But I calmed her saying I wouldn't go if I didn't think I was safe. I mean Jerusalem yes, but the West ... Read more >

Israel - ישראל

ISRAEL | Tuesday, 5 Nov 2013 | Views [236]

For ages I've been saying to my parents 'no of course I won't be going to Israel. I'm not crazy'. Well last week I did a complete turn around and booked last minute flights to this conflicted country. And I am so glad I did! Israel is an amazing place ... Read more >

Whirling Turkey

TURKEY | Thursday, 31 Oct 2013 | Views [285]

10 nights, 7 places, a group of great people & a country that amazes - my tour through Turkey was incredible.    After spending a couple of extra nights in Istanbul, Ecebat was the first stop for a trip to Gallipoli. Gallipoli is ... Read more >

Apple Tea

TURKEY | Thursday, 31 Oct 2013 | Views [246]

Istanbul - the only city in the world placed on two continents. Europe and Asia. I'm not sure if it was just the people I met, the time of year, the vibe of the hostel or what but my time in Istanbul was a highlight on my trip. So much fun in one of ... Read more >

The Cyclades & the Acropolis.

GREECE | Thursday, 17 Oct 2013 | Views [186]

Spending ten nights in Greece was definitely a highlight of my trip! Ios with its beautiful beach, Santorini with its stunning views, Crete with its turquoise water & Athens with its ancient ruins. All so very different it's hard to pick a favourite ... Read more >

Italian bruschetta & wine

ITALY | Sunday, 6 Oct 2013 | Views [168]

A week in Italy had it all - wine, food, ruins, scary cliff top roads.   The first few nights was spent in Rome with Sam rediscovering this ancient city. We drank on the Spanish steps, visited the Colosseum, discovered Italian wine, devoured ... Read more >


GERMANY | Monday, 30 Sep 2013 | Views [217]

Does anymore need to be said?   Day 1 was a Saturday and it was busy! We had no chance of getting into a beer tent but had fun watching all the drunk people vomiting, stumbling, crying and passed out on 'hammered hill'. We ended up in the ... Read more >

Crowded Catalonia

SPAIN | Friday, 27 Sep 2013 | Views [206]

So imagine our surprise when we cruise into Barcelona further practising our Spanish only to find out that they don't use Spanish at all. Catalan is the language used and is a mix of Portuguese, Italian & French! And they replied rudely in English ... Read more >

Hola, Madrid!

SPAIN | Monday, 23 Sep 2013 | Views [213]

Ah finally some sunshine and hot weather! Madrid was a huge surprise. After a huge build up it didn't disappoint! Wandering the streets, eating tapas, drinking sangria and soaking up some Spanish were definitely highlights.   Our favourite ... Read more >

Cousin time

IRELAND | Thursday, 19 Sep 2013 | Views [199]

So finally after months of waiting, my cousin Sam arrived in Europe to travel with me!   Our first week was spent in chilly London and Dublin. London was spent doing the touristy sights, introducing Sam to pints, a grim reaper tour in the ... Read more >
