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 …

I didn’t know what to expect from Thailand’s Trang islands.  I’d heard that this small group of islands wasn’t as visited as the big hitters in Thai tourism, but still offered decent infrastructure for travellers, as well as some seriously glorious beaches. In other words, they had the travel trifecta I’m always looking for: lesser-known …

There’s no continent I’ve explored as thoroughly as Europe.  Reluctantly, at times, I’ll admit.  Yes, there was a time when I wasn’t excited by the prospect of travel in Europe. It was right when I first started travelling long-term, when the only countries that could hold my attention were the new and unfamiliar.  Europe? Yawn. …

There was no question about whether I’d go. For my travel partner, though, visiting sounded more like a chore than a crossing off a long-held bucket list item.  Yes, Dave wanted to skip the Taj Mahal.  I was convinced he’d lost his mind.  I couldn’t comprehend going to India and not seeing its most famous …

It wasn’t meant to be this way.  Back when I was first planning to travel long-term, I didn’t think my journey would have a focus. I wanted to see it all: cities, villages, lakes, mountains, rainforests, glaciers, deserts, and beaches.  I had no idea that last item on the list would be the main driving …

Yes, it’s that time again! You guys know I can never resist an opportunity to visit a themed restaurant while I’m travelling, so here I am, back at it again! Something you may or may not know about me, though, is my love for the band Pink Floyd. They’re my favourite. I’ve watched various members …

Hey all you cool cats and kittens. Yes, if March was a person it would be goddamn Carole Baskin down in Florida.  If you haven’t watched Tiger King yet, you’re probably wondering if I’ve lost my mind.  If you’ve read this blog for any amount of time, you’re probably aware that I did a long …

I had high expectations for Udaipur. And if you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you’ll know that usually means I’m going to end up disappointed. Yes, the more I hype up a destination in my mind, the more likely it is that I arrive and mark it down with a big old …

What a wonderful month February was! I spent the entirety of the past four weeks in Australia, and I loved getting to discover explore even more beautiful spots in this delightful country.  From Melbourne to the Grampians to an adventure travel film festival to the Great Ocean Road — I packed a hell of a …

Pushkar felt different. From the moment I arrived, it felt unlike anywhere else I had visited in Rajasthan. This is one of the oldest cities in India, and one of the holiest on the planet. And yet, it felt so laid-back — laid-back for India, anyway. Pushkar is a beautiful small city, situated around a …
