    4 Places I Wish I’d Avoided On My Travels

    These days, travel is so focused on ticking off the ‘must see’ spots, which clog up every traveller’s social media feed that the real gems of a country are left hidden.

    If you’ve been to Thailand but haven’t experienced the Full Moon Party, many travellers will be shocked that you missed out on such an ‘unmissable experience’. In reality, you missed out on rubbing up against a sweaty Brit abroad in a wife beater and the chance to get burnt alive by a dodgy firework.

    Postcards Home – Week 56

    To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,

    This week we’ve been exploring Kampot and Kep in the very South of Cambodia.

    Once we’d left our flour-soft sandy beach haven of Koh Rong, we caught a boat and bus to a cute colonial seaside town called Kampot, which is renowned for its pungent pepper plantations.

    Situated on the South coast of Cambodia around an hour from the Vietnamese border, this peaceful town is sprinkled in rustic sand-coloured colonial buildings, cosy corner cafes and most prominently, a laid-back promenade overlooking the Kampot River.

    Postcards Home – Week 55

    To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,

    This week we’ve made our way from the very top of Cambodia all the way to the very bottom.

    After leaving Siem Reap, Lizzie and I made the day long journey to Banlung, the capital city of the Ratanakiri Province in the very North of Cambodia. Renowned for its picturesque crater lake, powerful waterfalls and vast and diverse National Park (Virachey), we ventured up this way in search of untouched beauty, nature and wildlife.

    Postcards Home – Week 54

    To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,

    This week we’ve been exploring Siem Reap in Cambodia.

    As I’d already bullied my best friend, Fiona into getting an overnight bus from Koh Samui to Bangkok, Lizzie, Spence and I thought we’d be great friends and stay in Siem Reap for a week and a bit so that she didn’t have to endure another lengthy journey – aren’t we kind.

    A Photo Diary of Angkor Wat, Cambodia

    Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia is a collection of enchanting temples, which make up a deserted ancient Empire.

    Built in the 12th century by the Khmer people, these majestic ruins have been dubbed the eighth wonder of the world and it’s easy to see why…
