The next morning, at the Hotel Kinparo in Shin-Yatsushiro, we woke up to yet another breakfast feast… …before heading down to the onsen to make the most of it that morning. Soon enough though it was time to hit the road and we had one spot, in particular, we wanted to visit before heading over … Continue Reading

South Korea is an incredible country to explore. Now, one of the things I love most about the country is how diverse it is. Not only does it have some incredible vistas and protected coastlines, but it also has some of the best places in South Korea that are dotted all across the country. That’s … Continue Reading

The following morning in Kyushu, we got up bright and early, greeted by the sight of the Japanese countryside as we meandered through on the Seven Stars. Even as we got ready for breakfast, we knew we’d miss this train once we eventually got off it in Fukuoka. It was just everything we’d hoped it … Continue Reading

The Seven Stars in Kyushu train is one of the most amazing train journeys you can have in Japan and hands-down one that we were looking forward to the most when we visited Kyushu. See, the Seven Stars is an uber-luxurious sleeper train (easily one of the best, not just in Japan but in the … Continue Reading

The next morning in Kyushu, we woke up bright and early (nothing quite like jet lag to help you get an early start on your day) to breakfast at our Ryokan in Beppu. Breakfast if a full-on affair with options to go for a full Japanese breakfast affair or the more Western option (egg, bacon…etc). … Continue Reading

Leaving El Nido, we decided to go for a “different experience” in the Philippines. Well, not so much a “different experience“, as much as a different island. In our prosecco-induced booking haze, we kinda already knew Bohol was a great place to visit in the Philippines (as well as Siargao – which is a lot … Continue Reading

The Japanese island of Kyushu is one I’d never really thought of visiting before. I just didn’t know enough about it to even consider it to begin with. This all changed after we visited Tokyo for the first time last year. Over wine, our group of friends decided to head over to Seoul (there was … Continue Reading

I can’t remember what I expected from the Philippines. To be honest, I can’t even remember exactly even why we wanted to visit El Nido in Palawan. I think it’s one of those things that just sneaks up on you and before you know it, it’s become a full-fledged travel goal. I do remember sending … Continue Reading

Anyone who’s ever been to Bali knows (and will happily tell you) that the best things to do in Bali are all pretty much found outdoors. The best parties – outdoors. The best restaurants – outdoors. The best beaches (you guessed it) – outdoors. 😄😆 Even the temples are open airs and outdoors. In fact, some … Continue Reading

Thailand is a place that always surprises me. I remember the first time I visited – we were heading to Phuket and then to Phi Phi Islands – and I just had such a totally different expectation of Thailand. Movie and TV shows I’d seen had depicted it as a hectic, manic and uber-humid place … Continue Reading
