THAILAND | Tuesday, 28 Oct 2014 | Views [286]

Food is Asia, Asia is Food

HONG KONG | Sunday, 24 Nov 2013 | Views [371]

If I had to name one common obsession for Asia, it has to be food. People love their food here and with very good reasons to. Food in this continent is affordable, convenient, diverse and most importantly delicious!   Food is to Asia what history ... Read more >

MALAYSIA | Wednesday, 20 Nov 2013 | Views [396]

I can't believe this is my 100th story! It's been nearly a month since I've been back in Malaysia after Nepal. Ever since I got here, I find people can't resist the urge to ask me, "Where's your next destination?" I found myself having trouble answering ... Read more >

Altitude: 3440m. We just came back from dinner. I had a lovely pork chop with red wine sauce and fries, freshly cooked for me. Very yummy! :) Not exactly what I dreamed about a few days ago - food dreams have become a daily sleep ritual for me since ... Read more >

Sleeping in Luxury

MALAYSIA | Thursday, 12 Sep 2013 | Views [354]

Rolling around in egyptian cotton and laying my tiredness on duck down pillows. Not hating on the hostels I've stayed at, because they did a great job providing what I needed, but sleeping in a five-star hotel is always a luxurious experience to truly ... Read more >

Istanbul

TURKEY | Monday, 2 Sep 2013 | Views [408]

I left Istanbul upset and in a rush much to my dismay. I was tired of the hostel and party (!) lifestyle and just wanted to be in the comfort of my home and I longed to be with the people I love. All this on my last day at my last stop of my solo ... Read more >

Eating My Way Out of the UK

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 28 Aug 2013 | Views [343] | Comments [1]

So it's happening and I'm leaving - WAAAAH! :( But it's been a fabulous run for me in the UK and I enjoyed so much of it. The scenery, the friends, the weather (!), the shopping, the cities/towns/villages, EVERYTHING! Strangely though, I never got ... Read more >

Thursday: A Casual Day in Copenhagen

DENMARK | Thursday, 8 Aug 2013 | Views [1003]

Life's simple pleasures are really the most fulfilling.   It rained today. I stayed up too late last night. Maybe I drank too much too. But it was all in the name of fun and more importantly, it was time well spent with good friends I don't ... Read more >

CZECH REPUBLIC | Monday, 29 Jul 2013 | Views [295]

I love Prague.   It's as magical as I thought it would be and even better. The only disappointment I have is that I haven't been taking enough photos and taking photos that do this beautiful city justice.   I'm staying with Andrea, ... Read more >

Thoughts on Budapest :)

HUNGARY | Friday, 26 Jul 2013 | Views [1189]

Hungary is unique due to its location - its culture, language and history is unlike any other country in Europe. Budapest is the centre of it and is a beautiful city. A lot of backpackers head to Budapest for two reasons - to party and to party ... Read more >

Switzerland... What a Beautiful Country!

SWITZERLAND | Sunday, 14 Jul 2013 | Views [875]

Meeting up with my friend Ilona meant I didn't get to stay overnight in Zürich - which was a good thing because I was getting the feeling it would blow my budget with as little as a wave of a hand. Ilona invited me to stay with her at her fiancé... Read more >

Zürich or Zu reich (Too rich)

SWITZERLAND | Friday, 12 Jul 2013 | Views [1216]

Zürich is my second Swiss stop. I'm here to visit Ilona, another girl I met in Peru. Traversing the country south to north, from Lugano to Zürich, by train is magical. It was my first time seeing the Alps properly and they didn't disappoint.... Read more >

ITALY | Monday, 1 Jul 2013 | Views [277]

I've left Italy and am on my way to Athens. I'm really hoping for a week of relaxation and continuous chill-out sessions in Santorini! I nearly left on a bad note trying to get some Caprese for breakfast. Having had copious amounts of the most ... Read more >

Pompei and a US Base

ITALY | Saturday, 29 Jun 2013 | Views [500]

I left Rome yesterday to visit the ruins of Pompei and see my friend, Crystal, on her US navy base in Naples. When I switched trains for Pompei, I was very tempted to just skip it for some stunning scenery time in Sorrento. I decided not to though ... Read more >

Quiet Time in Venice

ITALY | Thursday, 20 Jun 2013 | Views [448]

A week ago, I was nearly going to skip Venice, thinking I didn't really have much time to play with in Italy. It turns out I'm now spending five days in Florence and six days in Rome! Venice or Venezia is a pretty cool city. Being set on an island ... Read more >

Lovely Lyon

FRANCE | Tuesday, 11 Jun 2013 | Views [343]

Why visit a museum when the restaurants are all museums of Lyon's reputation? There is a popular saying in France that Paris may be the heart of France, but Lyon is her stomach. The city has a reputation of being the gastronomical centre of the country ... Read more >

Merry in Madrid

SPAIN | Thursday, 30 May 2013 | Views [360]

Madrid has been such a pleasant surprise. Contrary to what I've heard, it is a beautiful city with the most amazing food. There's a lot to do here but you don't feel overwhelmed like in other big cities. Gazing at Spanish architecture, visiting ... Read more >

So San Sebastian...

SPAIN | Tuesday, 28 May 2013 | Views [243]

Not quite what I expected. I expected a cool town dedicated to the surf, sand and sun. I expected sunny and warm weather. I expected beautiful tanned folks that were friendly and smiled. Maybe I got confused with Rio. While the town is beautiful with ... Read more >
