Bolivia was the second fantastic country we visited on our tour of South America. The landlocked area boasts an array of scenery, from the Amazon rainforest and glass-smooth Lake Titicaca to the towering Andes and the far-reaching, otherworldly Atacama Desert. Oh, and the Uyuni Salt Flats – really, they deserve a dedicated article. Leaving Peru …

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 …

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 …
