My 2013 travel roundup

By |December 18th, 2013|

Not bad for an office bod.  Despite spending a large portion of my year sitting at a desk in a freezing cold west London office block, travel over the past 12 months has been good.  Very good in fact! At the risk of sounding a little like a Dbag, here’s a few travel numbers I […]

My top 10 photos of my Angkor Wat tour

By |September 16th, 2013|

Siem Reap and a tour of Angkor was the higlight of my time in Cambodia.  Whilst on my mini tour of Laos and Cambodia, Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville just hadn’t set my world alight in the same way that Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng had the week previous.  So, by the time my partner and […]

The Otres Market, Sihanoukville

By |July 22nd, 2013|

The Otres Market isnt really what I’d call a market.  Taking place each Saturday (seasonal) from 4pm onwards, the Otres Market is more of a musical showcase I would say, throwing a lineup of well travelled singer songwriters in front of a mellow crowd who gather around to sip beer and make new friends whilst […]

Siem Reap to Bangkok via the Poipet border

By |May 29th, 2013|

Siem Reap to Bangkok is quite a common route for backpackers travelling around South East Asia, but even so getting from one to the other can sometimes feel like a mission, a mountain, some other hideously big obstacle that at 4pm on a Friday my mind cannot think of.  We’ve all heard horror stories of 6 hours spent at […]

Guesthouse Review: Golden Mango – Siem Reap, Cambodia

By |May 12th, 2013|

Grab your sick buckets now because I warn you, this might get a wee bit mushy.  I am about to heap praise on one of the best guesthouses I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying at.  I think I am in love!

The Golden Mango Guesthouse in located just off of Highway 6, just a short tuk […]

Hostel Review: Footprints – Otres Beach, Cambodia

By |May 11th, 2013|

Located on Otres 2 in Sihanoukville, the Footprints hostel is a place to base yourself for a few days of doing very little.  Rigid with fear after a harrowing 4 hour bus journey (that should have taken 6 hours) from Phnom Penh, my girlfriend and I were finally able relax once we had arrived at this beach […]

Laos and Cambodia in Video. My Office Escape.

By |May 9th, 2013|

Laos and Cambodia, two totally awesome countries! Encase this is your first visit to my blog, or if you just haven’t passed through in a while, you might not be aware that I recently spent the best part of a month exploring both Laos and Cambodia with my better half. It was a whirlwind trip which involved […]

Ultra Flashpacking at The Bougainvillier Hotel, Phnom Penh

By |May 3rd, 2013|

So this is how the other half live, I get it now. I raise my head from my big fluffy pillow and cast and ear out … nope, no bag rustlers here, just silence, and silence is bliss! Whilst I love the backpacker lifestyle, there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself to a bit of luxury […]

A Travel Blogger Interview with The Counter Intuitive (@thecounterintui)

By |December 17th, 2012|

From city life to life on the road. Based upon my own experiences, and stories from my mates who work in the big city, I can fully appreciate why more and more people, including this week interviewee, choose to take a career break. From slogging away in a cubicle to sitting on a beach watching […]

An interview with Becki of

By |June 20th, 2012|

Uh oh, here comes trouble. Well you’ve all probably spoken to Becki either on twitter or at a London blogger meet-up, she’s a erm … social butterfly haha.  I jest, all round top chick and a great mate, she’s none to shabby at a quiz either.  Sadly for us Londoners its not long now until Becki’s off […]
