Farang Friday Feelin’

FRIYAAAAY! I realise that it’s not Friday right now, it is in fact Sunday which is rather depressing as there’s nothing worse than a Monday morning. I’ve never been a Friday feelin’ kind of girl, but after 6 months of zero responsibility, waking up at whatever time I like to do whatever I want all…

TEFL Heaven 2.0

As my second week on the island of Koh Chang is coming to a close, I can honestly say that I’m not ready to leave. I don’t want to go to work, I don’t want to leave my little bubble here- I’m having far too much fun. I’m not ready to go back to a…

The Boring Stuff

I really would hate it for anybody to think my blog was boring…but sometimes we’ve got to talk about the serious stuff; it can’t always be fun and games (unfortunately). Quite a lot of people have been emailing me with questions on; visas, travel insurance, vaccinations etc. I hear you, when I was in the…

TEFL Heaven

6 months ago, I quit my job, sold all of my things, packed my backpack and set off on a  trip around South East Asia. 6 countries and countless amazing memories later, it’s all come to a close. No longer am I looking at a map or hunting for bargain flight prices to see where…

Back in Bangkok

Being back in Bangkok feels very strange to say the least. It’s as if we’ve gone off to explore the world and am now back home. It’s like our whole trip has been leading up to this moment- we’ve made little plans, had no idea where we would be from day to day, however Bangkok…

Happy Songkran!

Happy Songkran everybody! I’ve left Cambodia and have now landed back in Bangkok, Thailand. This is where Joe and I initially began our trip so it feels very surreal to be back here. It’s almost as if we’ve come full circle and it actually feels like we’re home again. I love Bangkok, it’s one of…

Why I love backpacking

As previously promised, here is a list of what I love most about backpacking. Following on from my ‘Why I hate backpacking’ post (if you haven’t read it click here to check it out), I am well out of my black hole of despair, have stopped being so damned dramatic (mostly) and have pulled myself together….

Don’t skip Phnom Penh

Before arriving in Phnom Penh, I had so many preconceptions I was almost scared to visit. I had heard by fellow travellers that it was really dangerous, not to go out alone, not to go out after Sun down and to watch myself as crime is really rife here. I found none of this to be…

Top 10 destinations-Asia

I’ve spent so long deliberating this list; Joe and I always discuss what our favourite places are and they’re forever changing and shifting positions in my mind. I think I’ve locked it down here…and I’m pretty happy with it. I have loved my Asian travels too much to put into words; the continent is so…

Top vegan treats- Asia

Before I began my journey travelling South East Asia, not once did I think to myself ‘hmm, I can’t wait to eat all of the delicious accidentally vegan desserts when I get there!’-I wasn’t even aware that this would be possible. BUT there are so many delectable desserts we can try whilst exploring this amazing…

A day in Kep

Kep is a tiny seaside town only a 20 minute drive away from the centre of Kampot. I have no real interest in any more beaches, or eating fresh crab- which is what Kep is known for, so I wasn’t too bothered about visiting . However, Kep managed to seduce me through my love of…

A Kampot guide

I feel like I am finally doing something on this trip! For the past couple of weeks all I’ve done is ‘relax’, I use the term loosely as in reality I’ve not relaxed much at all. I’ve laid on a beach, read a couple of books, swam in the Sea…but I’ve been itching to do…
