If you’re not planning to visit Dubai, we have plenty of reasons why you absolutely should. Why? Well, Dubai spells luxury, charm, unbeatable manmade marvels, modern architecture like no other, and much more. Add to that the fact that Dubai has broken many world records – the largest manmade island, the tallest building, the highest […]
Island hopping in the Philippines is one of the main attractions in this country of 7,107 islands. In fact the Philippine island of Palawan has been voted as the best island in the world. I have done many island hopping tours in various parts of Palawan, including around El Nido, Coron, Honda Bay and Port […]
For a first time visitor to the Philippines, or any other less developed Asian country for that matter, it can be quite a confronting experience, and you may well feel out of your comfort zone. For a start, poverty is always very obvious. Unlike back in the West, many places don’t have drinkable tap water, […]
In June 2016, we escaped to the weird and wonderful China for 4 weeks. We travelled all around – starting off in the south, heading to the east, then overland all the way to the far west near the Pakistan border, before flying back east and home via Beijing. Guilin – Yangshuo – Fenghuang – […]
China is undeniably an intriguing and massive country with over 56 ethnic groups and an amazingly diverse landscape. From the mega-cities of Beijing and Shanghai in the east, along the silk-road to the ancient trading city of Kashgar in the west, the unique mountain formations in the south and the dry Gobi Desert and sand […]
Bali is a beautiful and popular choice for destination weddings with literally hundreds of stunning venues to choose from and a well-established wedding industry. But with so many options, navigating this huge minefield can be a little overwhelming. We know this because it’s exactly how we felt when we started on our own Bali wedding […]
Bali has some truly spectacular romantic dining options in some stunning locations. I know this because I did a ton of research before arranging my own private dining experience for my proposal to Angie (read: Romantic Bali proposal – How I asked Angie to marry me). With so many options picking the right place was […]
I often get asked what is there to do in the Philippines and the answer is always the same. If you’re going to the Philippines for at least 2 weeks then in my opinion you should use that time to explore the province of Palawan! Known as the last frontier of the Philippines, Palawan boasts […]
I’m not going to lie – planning my proposal wasn’t easy. I knew for months where I wanted to do it – in Bali – but how I was going to do it took a whole lot of thinking and research. I spent countless hours on forums reading proposal stories trying to get some inspiration. […]
Back in 2009, as part of a larger solo backpacking adventure around the world, I found myself wandering through the Middle East and into a relatively unknown and media-shy country called Syria. There was no civil war, there was no Islamic State, and there certainly weren’t four million people trying to flee. What I found […]
Whilst Bali is one of my favourite places on earth to visit, the popular tourist destination is only one of 17,000+ islands that make up the archipelago of Indonesia. Not many people are aware of the beautiful places that surround the famous party island, especially one in particular – the island of Sumba. Sumba is situated […]
