Cooking Up a Storm in Hoi An

Vietnamese food in my opinion is one of the tastiest types of Asian food, so it was a no brainer to partake in a cookery class during our time in Vietnam earlier this year. We travelled throughout the country and found that most places we visited offered cookery classes, however […]

9 Things You Should Know About Boracay

Boracay is a funny one. A classic case of British marmite – you’ll either love it or hate it. This once idyllic island located in the centre of the Philippines has become so popular over the years, that tourism and development have truly over ruled what was once a middle-of-nowhere […]

Beach Hopping In Goa

Back in 2013, I visited Goa to spend two week’s beach hopping from the north of Goa down to the south coast. It was a great opportunity to see how the north and south differ so much, and of course, all those places in between! This was my first trip […]

El Nido is without a doubt one of the Philippine’s highlights and if you have the chance to visit, you’ll understand why. Despite being one of the country’s key destinations, it doesn’t mean reaching El Nido is simple. The small town does have a local airport (Lio Airport), however only […]

Cooking With Rahul

For many, travelling to new countries is all about experiencing new foods just as much as experiencing new cultures. And there’s no better way to get to learn about local foods, than learning first hand from a local cookery pro, like our friend Rahul. I’ve joined a few different cookery […]

Vinpearl Safari In Phu Quoc

Borneo Orangutan Care Project

I would never usually stay at a 5 star hotel such as the Shangri-La chain, but when the opportunity arose I clearly jumped at the chance! I visited Borneo back in 2007 on a short stopover to Australia, and at the time there was a bizarre offer for a free […]
