I cannot believe I've arrived in Mexico already, and am essentially on the home straight. It's hard to believe I've been away for 5 months now, but with so much more to see in my remaining 4 months, I know the time will unfortunately fly by. Guadalajara, Jalisco My first stop in this huge country … Continue reading A first taste of Latin Culture
Fiji had a lot to live up to. I'd wanted to visit this South Pacific paradise for years, and I'm so happy to say it didn't disappoint. 9 days spent without Internet, island hopping from one paradise to the other really was the perfect mid way point of my round the world trip.
G'day! You may have noticed a change in headline style - that would be because it turns out I've somehow missed 2 weeks when publishing these blogs - they've been written about, just not accurately recorded, so I'm scrapping them. 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.

It's been an eventful and very full 2 weeks in since my last post, which is why I've decided to combine them, rather than try and separate out two weeks of island life which were pretty similar. Before reading this, my suggestion would be to get a cup of tea, ensure you're sitting down comfortably, … Continue reading The Thai Islands
It is with deep regret that this stage covers the closing chapter of my time in Vietnam. I have absolutely loved my time in this country, and although I know I have lots of amazing adventures ahead of me, I was sad to leave this wonderful place, and the people I'd met here too. We … Continue reading Final week in Vietnam
So, following what is increasinglying becoming a bad habit, I'm behind with my blog posts again. Since my last post, I've continued traveling north through Vietnam, and spent quite a long time in what has definitely been my favourite place so far - Hoi An. I stayed in this ancient city for 6 days, and could … Continue reading Central Vietnam
This week’s post comes to you from the beautiful country of Vietnam, and for the past few days I've traveled from the south up to the middle of the country. My journey started in Saigon, a sprawling city reflective of any western hub – skyscrapers provide welcome shade from the heat, roadworks surround a main … Continue reading Good Morning Vietnam
