The Delight of Hiring a Driver in Bali, Indonesia.

Bali is an island covered in the lush greenery of rice paddies, mountains and forests; while stunningly beautiful, this does make getting from A to B a little more challenging than you would expect. The plethora of winding, narrow country roads along with the ridiculous number of motorcycles almost completely rules out large modes of […]

Bula! – Two Weeks in Fiji with Awesome Adventures.

One thing to know before you book that plane ticket is that Fiji is rather expensive.

Cambodia, it was short and sweet. Hello Bangkok.

We left Cambodia after only ten days, more due to time restraints than by choice. It doesn’t feel like we’ve been able to see a lot of this country; and it’s true we haven’t! As I think I’ve previously mentioned when talking about Laos, before I came out here I naively thought every country we […]

One of the reasons I wanted to visit Cambodia in the first place was to see Angkor Wat; the hugely famous ancient temple that adorns the country’s flag and the largest religious site in the world.
