Tonle Sap in Cambodia – The Trip that Changed my Life

No matter which way I slice it, the beginning of 2010 was a monumentally shit time for me. My personal life had fallen apart and I couldn’t stop crying.

Planning An Affordable Copper Canyon Tour Itinerary

If you’re looking for an affordable Copper Canyon tour itinerary, read on.

Traveling in Europe with Kids – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

When I want to take a trip, I book a ticket, pack a bag (a small one at that) and go. And then I look at my friends with children and watch in awe at the planning, packing, cajoling, refereeing and excitement containing that goes on when they, likewise, take a trip.

What To Do When You Feel Lonely Travelling Alone

I’ve been at this solo travel a while now – in fact, last week marked five years since I quit my job as a lawyer and set off on a one-year adventure that still hasn’t come to an end.
