Exploring South Vietnam | Ho Chi Minh City and Mui Ne

Because Vietnam is such a big country, I have split it up into several blog posts, starting with the south. My friend Katie and I spent a month there and travelled the whole country from the south to the north. We started off in Ho Chi Minh City, having caught the bus there from Cambodia. … Continue reading Exploring South Vietnam | Ho Chi Minh City and Mui Ne

Turtle Island | Malaysian Borneo

One thing I have ALWAYS dreamed of doing is seeing turtles lay eggs on the beach and I was able to do this on an island called Selingan in Borneo. Booking to get to Turtle Island is difficult because there is limited space but I persevered. The boat journey to the island took an hour … Continue reading Turtle Island | Malaysian Borneo

Wildlife Watching on the Kinabatangan River | Malaysian Borneo

After  the most incredible day at the Orangutang Sanctuary in Sepilok in Borneo, the following day I planned to to try and see my other favourite animal- elephants. I love elephants and was lucky enough to volunteer with them in Thailand a few years back. However I had never seen one in the wild, nor had I ever seen a … Continue reading Wildlife Watching on the Kinabatangan River | Malaysian Borneo

Malaysia, Truly Asia!

Kuala Lumpur After a week in Borneo, I spent just over a week in Malaysian mainland, arriving first into the capital Kuala Lumpur quite late at night. The following day we got up early to go exploring, and already even at that time although it was overcast, it was really muggy and hot! Our first … Continue reading Malaysia, Truly Asia!

Three Days in Singapore

I only spent three days in Singapore, right at the end of my trip last year before my flight home. From the Perhentians islands in Malaysia, it was quite a journey to get there - a twelve hour night bus all the way down to the south of the country, followed by another couple of … Continue reading Three Days in Singapore

I had previously visited Thailand back in 2013, and so in 2015 my friend Katie and I just spent a week in Thailand and then two months travelling Cambodia and Vietnam together. I then continued on … Continue reading Cambodiaaa

The Incredible Komodo Islands | Indonesia

As a David Attenborough fan, I figured I couldn't go all the way to Indonesia and not see Komodo dragons! I was a bit nervous because its not such a well trodden path, but at this point I was with my friend Jordan so  at least I wasn't doing it on my own. So we booked … Continue reading The Incredible Komodo Islands | Indonesia

Throwback To My First Ever Trip | Thailand

This is actually a reminiscent post about my first trip to Thailand a few years back , so I'm kind of cheating here but 1) I didn't have a blog website back then and 2) I'm not away at the moment so have to reminisce about something! So back to the beginning- in between university studies, I took my … Continue reading Throwback To My First Ever Trip | Thailand

Sky Dives and Scuba Dives| Magnetic Island and Cairns

Magnetic Island Unluckily for me, I was booked onto an early bus at 7.30am from Airlie Beach to Magnetic Island- there were a lot of empty seats from people who missed it because of the night before! After a five hour journey, I had to then get on a boat (not what you need hungover … Continue reading Sky Dives and Scuba Dives| Magnetic Island and Cairns
