Climbing a Mountain of Rainbows! | My experience trekking Rainbow Mountain, Peru

Rainbow Mountain in Peru has been on my bucket list for a LONG time. Before arriving, I did some research and read some really mixed- mostly negative - blog reviews online. For me, my experience of Rainbow Mountain was entirely positive, and I really recommend doing it! Perhaps tour companies had taken time to establish … Continue reading Climbing a Mountain of Rainbows! | My experience trekking Rainbow Mountain, Peru

Back to School! | Learning Spanish in Antigua, Guatemala

The first place I visited in Guatemala was Antigua. To get there,I flew from San José, (the capital of Costa Rica) to Guatemala City, the capital of Guatemala.

Exploring La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano | Costa Rica

After two days in Puerto Viaje, I left for La Fortuna the following morning. The journey took six hours and genuinely cost a fortune (excuse the hilarious pun). Basically to get to La Fortuna using public transport from Puerto Viaje was to catch two public buses, one to San Jose (the capital) and then a … Continue reading Exploring La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano | Costa Rica

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.

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

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 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 Trip | Thailand
