Japan is one of those countries that always calls to me. I’m not sure if it’s the country’s strong culture, iconic cities or beautiful landscapes but there are so many of the best things to do in Japan that are totally unique… and very tasty to boot! To be honest, I just can’t fully put … Continue Reading

Angkor was the historic capital of the impressive Khmer Empire. Sitting within the city of Siem Reap, it has become one epic place to explore. Filled with incredible architecture, Khmer Culture and, of course, beautiful temples in Siem Reap – it is easily a must-see place when visiting this incredible country. I remember, when we lived … Continue Reading

Oh, Bali! 😍😍😍 An Indonesian island so famous for its natural beauty that it barely needs any introduction! Even if you haven’t been, chances are that you know someone who has or indeed really want to go yourself. Good thing is, for its relatively small size, there’s a surprising amount of things to see and do … Continue Reading

In addition to its many beautiful beaches, stunning waterfalls and rustic villages, Bali’s temples are some of the most interesting and indeed, most important places to visit on this little Indonesian island. Honestly, there are so many incredible and best temples in Bali to visit.  Even though you might visit the island for the sunshine … Continue Reading

I have to admit, when it came to cities I wanted to visit in China, Hangzhou wasn’t at the top of that list. The bright lights of Shanghai, the hustle and bustle of the capital city of Beijing and even the promise of seeing the amazing great wall of China had me drawn to other … Continue Reading

Bangkok is a fun, crazy and exciting city to visit! Chances are you kinda already know this, even if you’ve not visited yet – it’s reputation precedes it! In the midst of all this activity (and potential partying – I did say it’s a fun city after all), Bangkok is also filled with lots of … Continue Reading

When we arrived at Pashupatinath Temple, I don’t think I realised how big it actually was. You arrive at this seemingly unassuming date, walk through a fairly quiet walkway and before you know it, you’re in the heart of one of Nepal’s most sacred sites. Like Boudhanath before, Pashupatinath Temple is also a UNESCO World … Continue Reading

Boudhanath is one of the largest stupas in all of Nepal and a very important sight to see in Kathmandu. It’s located on the old trade route with Tibet and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. After making our way through the surprisingly fast-building traffic from our first stop of the day, we arrived … Continue Reading

On our final day in Nepal, we were kind of operating in panic mode. We’d spent so much time seeing so many different parts of Nepal that we’d left almost no time whatsoever to explore the capital city of Kathmandu. We had planned to do so the day before but were distracted by the historic … Continue Reading

One place I knew I really wanted to visit on this trip was Bhaktapur. I’d heard so much about it since we arrived and knew it would have to be added to our itinerary as soon as I knew about it. After leaving the historic town of Panauti, we headed straight for Bhaktapur – which … Continue Reading

Panuati is one of Nepal’s oldest towns and one of its most important historically too – largely due to the fact that it’s pretty much been left the way the founders built the town. It’s not too far from Kathmandu either (it’s actually a commuter town for some people) so it makes for the perfect … Continue Reading

The next morning, we got up early again (a running theme during this entire trip to Nepal) and hit the road this time heading back to Kathmandu – our final stop on our trip across Nepal. The journey was actually supposed to be a 5-hour journey but due to traffic, we were told it could take … Continue Reading

The next morning, kinda fuelled by our missed sun rise opportunity in Palpa, we decided to see the sunrise over the Himalayas in Pokhara. And so, alarms set for 4am, off we set in search of that sun rise. I can’t tell you how hard getting up for that was. 🙂 😀 There’s a reason … Continue Reading

Apparently, one of the best views in Nepal is from Tansen, where we were staying with a local family. The reason why this view is amazing is because from here, you can see the stretch of the Himalayan mountain ranges right in front of you… and if you arrive here for sunrise, said view is … Continue Reading
