Two Nights in Singapore

On arrival into Singapore, the first thing that struck me is how lovely the people are. As soon as we sat in our taxi (which we were happy to take as they are strictly monitored in Singapore, preventing passengers from being ripped off), the driver started asking about our trip and giving us tips on…

Hong Kong Disneyland

While we were in Thailand, James and I decided to head to Hong Kong. It was close enough that it would have seemed a shame if we didn’t visit. Plus, it meant that we could spend our 7th year anniversary in one of the most magical places on earth – Disneyland! I’ve mentioned before that…

Our Ocean Park experience

The night before we were due to fly to Hong Kong, my younger brother started messaging me about the research he had done on an amusement park in Hong Kong. Since we had already planned to visit Hong Kong Disneyland (more on that in a later post), James and I had already decided that our…

Our first day in Hong Kong

During the early hours on the morning of 19th November 2017, James and I flew from Phuket to Hong Kong. Due to the flight being just before 4am, we decided not to book a hotel that night as we would have had to leave at mid- night anyway. Although this saved us some money (no…

Island Hopping in Thailand

  We started our Thai island hopping adventure by flying from Chiang Mai to Krabi where we stayed in the town of Ao Nang for 7 days. We spent a lot of time wandering around the town sampling the bars and restaurants along Ao Nang Beach. It isn’t the biggest town so we also spent…

I’m still here!

Apologies for my lack of posts as of late, my phone met a grisly end in Hong Kong meaning that I lost connectivity from the internet for a while along with a lot of photos of our time in Thailand. We came home to surprise our families just before Christmas and now that I’m back…

A week in Chiang Mai

I’m just going to throw it out there…Chiang Mai was not what I was expecting. At all. I hadn’t done a lot of research into the city as my main plan for Chiang Mai was to visit an elephant sanctuary. Other than that, I’d read that there were a few temples and just made an…

Elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mai

Towards the end of October, James and I flew from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. We arrived in the evening and ordered an Uber to our first hostel. It was at this hostel where we booked the first of our Thai experiences- a trip to an elephant sanctuary! Something that I have wanted to do for…

Two nights in Bangkok

On the 24th October James and I flew into Bangkok to start our month long Thai adventure. Unfortunately after we had booked, we found out that this was possibly the worst timed flight of our trip due to the cremation ceremony of the late king taking place. This led to the closure of half of…

Making my way through northern Cambodia

After our time on the island of Koh Rong Samloem it was time to head to the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. As there was no internet in the island, we had to wait until we arrived at the docks of Sihanoukville before we could book our transport (we’d booked our hostel before we arrived…

Backpacking through Southern Cambodia

On October 9th, James and I crossed the border from Vietnam to Cambodia. We caught the ferry to Ha Tien and then rode through to the crossing in a mini bus. I must admit, my anxiety flared up a bit at the thought of using a land crossing (and the fact that we had to…

Purchases from Vietnam

I left Vietnam just over three weeks ago (it already feels like so long ago!)  so I that it was time to share a few of the purchases I made during my time there. I didn’t make many of the ‘traditional’ purchases that you would expect one to make when travelling through South East Asia….
