Snaps from Sri Lanka

I remember flying into Sri Lanka and the first sight we saw was a country covered in massive palm trees (a sure sign of tropical paradise ???) We travelled from Colombo down the West coast to the Southern province all the way to Yala on the East and then back through the jungle center –…

Wild Rajasthan

Rajasthan – a wild desert state. We stayed in two separate cities, completely different and each breathtakingly beautiful. Jaipur – The Pink City Called the Pink City due to all the buildings within the walled historic centre painted a terracotta pink colour, this is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve seen. Not meaning to…

A taste of the Himalayas

We left Delhi and travelled North via train to a small hippy town at the bottom of the Himalayas called Rishikesh. This was probably the best decision we could have made and honestly turned our time around in India. WE LOVED RISHIKESH. We stayed at two different hostels during our time here and both were…

New Delhi & Agra

Snaps of the streets in New Delhi HOLI festival Holi is a traditional Hindu Festival celebrating the beginning of Spring as well as the triumph of good over evil.  It is best known around the world for the coloured powder that people throw onto each other leaving everyone covered in colour by the end of…

INDIA: a love/hate story

Ohhhh India, where to even begin? Flying out of Singapore and into New Delhi was a shock in itself. One of the cleanest cities in the world to one of the dirtiest in the space of 5 hours. We braced ourselves to leave the airport and enter the dusty Delhi streets, and we were right…

Singapore: can you fall in love with a city?

Said to be “The cleanest city in the world,” Singapore is definitely a good contender for this title. Landing in Singapore felt like a completely different world to the tiny Thai airport we’d just left. Everything was so BIG and so clean. The first thing we did was grab a tourist MRT (underground/metro) card and…

Southern Thai Islands

Southern Thailand is a paradise in itself. It’s surprising how different it is to the North and Central parts, each offering something completely unique. The leafy forested North and metropolitan center of Thailand are worlds away from each other and even more so than the beachy idillic South. The islands we loved the most were…

24hrs in BANGKOK

BANGKOK Known around the world as a massive draw for a lot of tourists because of the nightlife. But that’s not all it has to offer. We didn’t really venture here to see the nightlife in particular (definitely not just the fact we couldn’t stay for more than 24 hours…) although I can’t deny it…

North Thailand – Wats & Waterfalls

Chiang Mai – I absolutely love this city. As soon as we arrived we were met with such a chilled out friendly atmosphere that all of our stresses (having to run through the airport and making it to our connecting flight by ONE MINUTE) melted away. We stayed in a little guesthouse in the old…

HA LONG BAY and thoughts about Vietnam…

How can you visit Vietnam and not take a boat trip around Ha Long Bay? There are various arranged trips to and around Ha Long Bay that vary in price but all do essentially the same route and visit the same things. We organised our trip through the hostel we were staying at in Tam…
