As you read these words, I’ll be sitting 40,000 feet up over the Pacific Ocean — most likely fretting about the turbulence — on a 30-hour travel day that will see me venturing from Bristol to London to Seoul to Auckland. Yes, you read that correctly. I’m heading to New Zealand. But how can you …

Oh Canada!  I may be slightly biased because I’m Canadian, but I don’t even care—Canada is one of the most breathtaking and diverse countries. From the landscapes to the people, it’s safe to say that this is a country that will give travellers a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  Unlike most of my Canadian peers, I’ve had the …

Peru is such a wonderful country to travel in.  Cusco embodies European classiness while Lima is bustling and vibrant. Machu Picchu is full of enchantment while Huacachina mysterious and rare. Colca Canyon is stunningly vast while Arequipa is surrounded by volcanoes. But there is one characteristic each Peruvian destination has in common: heart. The Peruvian …

Cuba is somehow both mysterious and familiar. Visiting feels like travelling through time, bringing traditional architecture, a pulsing spirit, and a fascinating culture together as one. Simply put, the Cuban vibe is addicting.  In Havana, a festive music and dance culture vibrates through the heart of the capital city. Old-timey cars and shades of pastel-splatted …

Iceland is the land of marvel.  From the breathtaking landscapes to the welcoming locals, the wonders of this country were obvious from my first cold steps on Icelandic terrain.  During my time spent traveling in the Land of Fire and Ice, my four girlfriends and I stood in awe at waterfalls streaming from towering mountains, …

I began to put this monthly summary together for June then remembered I hadn’t published one in May! That was deliberate. There are so many important conversations and movements taking place in the world right now that I simply couldn’t bring myself to write a tone-deaf post about how my life is tough because I …

A lot of people despise Delhi. Not me, though! It’s one of my favourite cities on the planet, and I fell for it from the moment I stepped foot on its busy streets. Delhi is the only place I’ve visited that has left me wanting to write an individual blog post for every single attraction …

I’m rounding off my Trang island coverage with the most beautiful place of all.  Koh Kradan. Now, you know me and beaches: beautiful ones are like a magnet for me, and if they just so happen to be in Thailand? I’m already there.  And Koh Kradan? Well, it’s often voted as having one of the best …

I’ve started dreaming about travel. Continuously. Every morning, I wake from a dream that I’ve been swimming in the South Pacific or hiking in Italy or camping in the Thar Desert or tramping through the Bornean rainforest. It’s weird. You might think that because my life usually revolves around travel, I often end up dreaming …

Koh Libong is the largest of all of the Trang islands. And yet, it’s one of the least visited. There are just five small guesthouses on the island, four of which are found on the same stretch of beach on the west coast, and they’re rarely ever full. This is an island that remains untouched …

I’ve spent a lot of time in Thailand. It’s one of my favourite countries in the world, however basic that may make me. I just can’t get enough of this beautiful, warm, and fascinating country. Ever since my first visit in 2011, I’ve made the effort to return each and every year, and with each …
