So, when I last posted, I was leaving Antigua for Lake Atitlan. We'll, now I'm back in Antigua and have been here for a week.

I cannot believe I've been away from home for 6 months already! The time has gone so quickly, and it feels really weird to be looking at the next 12 weeks as a countdown home... there is so much I've got to fit in! I started this week by crossing the boarder from San Ignacio, … Continue reading 6 Month Travel Anniversary
First thing to address - yes, I did use the same pun in this weeks headline as my instagram post. No, I don't mind. It's the only pun I can manage. Now we've addressed that, I can more on to more interesting subjects, such as the Caribbean paradise that is Caye Caulker. This small island … Continue reading An un-Belize-able week
This week is a break from backpacking and an account of 10 days of luxury with my nearest and dearest. Hope you enjoy!

Queensland After my adventures in Fraser island, I headed south to a town called Noosa, … Continue reading Three states in three weeks – Australia cont.
A long overdue 'Hello!' from the land down under! I've had a fantastic, if not expensive, 2 and a half weeks in Australia. It was certainly a bit of a culture shock when I went to order a cider in the pub on my second day in Cairns, whilst watching the Lions game, and the … Continue reading Birthday weeks in Queensland
My second week in the Philippines really captured the essence of 'island life' - it was a wonderful experience of true Filipino culture. I do need to say up front though - there isn't much variety in my pictures this week as my phone was pretty broken, only working 45% of the time, so I … Continue reading Island hopping around the Central Visayas
