My 2013 travel roundup

By | December 18th, 2013|Travel|

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 [...]

By | December 4th, 2013|Laos, Photographic Inspiration|

I've never really liked heights, but seeing Vang Vieng at sunrise was worth the struggle with my fear.  It's a strange one really considering that I'm OK flying, will quite happily throw myself out of a perfectly good plane, or dive off a bridge with no more than a glorified elastic band wrapped around my [...]

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 [...]
