1. The Jardine’s Lookout Hike – Hong Kong

    Earlier this year whilst looking through Instagram, I saw a photo of an amazing view over Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. It was taken from a spot called Jardine’s Lookout on Stage 2 of the Wilson Trail and immediately I knew that I wanted to go and get this photo for myself despite my only “hiking” experience at this point being the incredibly easy Lamma Island Family Trail.

  2. How to Survive a US Road Trip

    Some people love road trips whilst some people do not. I’ll admit that I’m one of those people who loves being out on the open road. After going on a number of “epic road trips” around different parts of the US and Canada in the last few years, I can easily say that there is definitely something amazing about the freedom of being able to see so much of a country that you might not have been able to see otherwise.

  3. Széchenyi Thermal Baths – Budapest, Hungary

    If there’s one thing you have to do whilst in the amazing city of Budapest, it is to visit the Széchenyi Thermal Baths. They are not only the largest baths in Budapest (and probably the most photographed and well known) but also the largest medicinal baths in Europe and a must-do for every visitor. It was definitely at the top of our list of places to go when we visited Budapest last December. (more…)

  4. How to Get From Hong Kong Island to Hong Kong Disneyland

    I never thought I would write this blog post as I have always thought that getting to Hong Kong Disneyland from Hong Kong Island was incredibly simple and did not need explaining. Recently however, many people have asked me to give them directions of how to do the journey or asked me if it is easy to do. Therefore two weeks ago whilst I was in Hong Kong, I took some photos during the journey to Hong Kong Disneyland. (more…)

  5. Our Trip to Iceland – Day Five

    I woke up on our last morning in Iceland without the need for an alarm clock. We did not have much to do at all on this day before we needed to head to the airport so we had a lazy morning and sat in bed until 9:30am before getting dressed and having breakfast downstairs in our hotel. (more…)

  6. Our Trip to Iceland – Day Three

    Ever since I had seen a photo of Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and Black Diamond Beach, I had desperately wanted to visit so waking up early at 6:30am to see them at sunrise was not difficult in the slightest. The key to clothes for this morning was even more layers than usual and lots of them. After getting dressed, we left the hotel just after 7:00am and started the twenty minute drive towards Jökulsárlón – I do not think we saw another car on the road at all. (more…)

  7. Our Trip to Iceland – Day Two

    As we had an early start on our first full day in Iceland, I had set my alarm for 6:30am. Thankfully I had slept well and as I knew we had a lot planned, it was easy to get out of bed ready for the long day ahead. After having a shower and getting dressed, we made our way downstairs for an early breakfast. (more…)

  8. Our Trip to Iceland – Day One

    I do not really remember too much about my first visit to Iceland. It was seventeen years ago when myself and a group of work colleagues spent less than twenty four hours in Reykjavik and as it was December, it was dark for most of the time we were there. So ever since then, despite being able to say that I had been to Iceland, I could not really say that I had seen much of it at all so it has always been on my list of places to go back to. (more…)
