Singapore is one city I feel lucky to have called home! A big reason why is, of course, all the fun things to do in Singapore but the unexpected nature of some of them is perhaps what really made it so special to call the city ‘home’ for a while… My move to Singapore happened … Continue Reading

The Kingdom of Ayutthaya is an incredible ancient Kingdom in Thailand which started almost 700 years ago and existed for over 400 years. Ayutthaya was actually the capital of Thailand years ago, and is still a very important place to visit when you’re in Thailand! These days, it’s now a city and indeed, a wider … Continue Reading

Okay so because we arrived in Bangkok at night, I never got round to showing you our hotel so I’ll just start off with that now. 😁 We stayed at the LiT BANGKOK Hotel for the first couple of night in the city and it was brilliant! I thought I took photos by the pool … Continue Reading

A few hours before midnight, we got picked up from our hotel in Bangkok for a chance to experience the city in a way we wouldn’t have otherwise. Our day had started with one of the most popular spots in the city (the Grand Palace, Khlongs and Wat Arun – see it all here) but … Continue Reading

Bangkok was one city I’d wanted to visit for a long time. Ever since we went to Phuket and Phi Phi Island, Thailand very swiftly rose in the rankings of some of my favourite places to holiday in and thanks to that, the capital city has beckoned for quite some time now. Visiting Bangkok, we … Continue Reading

After last nights drinks at Miyakobashi Shotengai Street, we decided it best to have a little lie-in before hitting the town. Now, there was once spot I really wanted to visit since we arrived in Yokohama and that is the Sankeien Garden that opened over a hundred years ago. Now, the thing that makes this … Continue Reading

After a good nights sleep in our Ryokan the day before, we headed straight for breakfast of fish, miso soup and rice before heading out to explore the busier side of Yokohama. After gorging the lot, we packed up our bags and hopped on the Yokohama Seaside Line with the Yokohama Bay Hotel in sight. … Continue Reading

After exploring Kanazawa, the day before, we decided to make a stopover to Yokohama which is actually a pretty nifty 30 minutes from Narita Airport (and Tokyo, for that matter) by train. It’s funny, we’ve visited Tokyo twice before and for some reason we’d never ventured beyond the city limits to visit Yokohama which is … Continue Reading

Today was to be our last day in the Ishikawa prefecture (after yesterday’s adventure), but we certainly wanted to make the most of our time. After an early morning rise and a quick ride on the Kitasen Ishiwaka Line, we were back in Kanazawa, the capital city of the region. Now, we planned to depart … Continue Reading

Waking up bright and early after yesterday’s adventure and headed straight for breakfast before our visit to the Shirayama-Hime Shrine to begin our Misogi water purification ritual. As we strolled up to the shrine in Hakusan City, it dawned on me how special our Misogi experience was going to be. I’d never experienced any kind … Continue Reading

After zonking out after yesterday’s adventure around Kanazawa, we must have slept for like 11 hours! That being said, it totally reset us for Japanese time and we both woke up bright-eyed and ready to explore. After gorging at breakfast, we thought it might be a good idea to work off some of those calories … Continue Reading

As you probably know, we totally love Japan. There’s something about the culture, beautiful cities, incredible islands and of course, lots of yummy Japanese food. After visiting Tokyo (a few times), then heading to Kyushu Island in the south, we knew we wanted to explore some other areas of Japan that we’d yet to explore. … Continue Reading

Recently, we returned to Tokyo, one of my absolute favourite cities for a chance to a.) explore even more of this amazing city and b.) test run an amazing app which is due to act as something of a ‘cure’ to jetlag. If you’ve been on our Instagram, then you’ll know more about this so … Continue Reading

The best hikes in the Philippines are without a doubt some of the best ways to find the most amazing views in all of the Philippines. With the Philippines being made up of over 7,000 islands (7,641 to be exact), it’s safe to say the hiking options abound here. So much so that it can … Continue Reading
