Sweet Travel Memories: A Mini Throwback

Sweet Travel Memories: A Mini Throwback

The trip is over and I’m back home. Realising my days were no longer going to be filled with new experiences and a constant feeling of excitement about pretty much anything wasn’t great. I have had that before, last year after my first ever backpacking trip, so I knew what it felt like to come to the end of the adventure, but this time around it was different: I didn’t…

Starting The Year Right

Starting The Year Right

Happy New Year, dear readers! Once again, I’ve been MIA for a while, but as you might already know if you read my previous post, I’ve been backpacking again so time and wifi have been limited. Buyana and I have started our adventure in Malaysia, where we spent Christmas, followed by Singapore, where we spent NYE and then Palawan, Philippines, where we have been fully enjoying the start of 2016.…

Here & Now: A New Adventure Begins

Here & Now: A New Adventure Begins

Merry belated Christmas, dear readers! The theme for this week’s photo challenge is ‘NOW‘ and what a better way to show you what I’ve been up to for the past week. Follow me on Instagram and you’ll be more easily updated! Remember my friend Buyana who I backpacked with in Thailand and Cambodia? Well, we planned trip #2 and last week we set off to Kuala Lumpur — the first…

Angkor Wat: The Jewel Of The Khmer Empire

Angkor Wat: The Jewel Of The Khmer Empire

Angkor, once the capital of the Khmer Empire and one of the largest cities in the world, is one of the most impressive religious monuments ever created. It’s even more striking to think that most of the temples in the complex date as far back as 800 years ago and, despite having suffered the side effects of human beings’ inconsideration and Mother Nature’s hardcore mood swings, they are still standing! Some of…

Small City, Big Crowds

Small City, Big Crowds

This week’s new photo challenge theme is ‘gathering‘ and I couldn’t help but think back to my recent trip to Hong Kong, one of the most densely populated cities in the world. After spending a few months in the coast of Vietnam, the prospect of being in a big crowded city excited me. After hearing people comparing HK to NYC in terms of energy and chaos, I knew I was going to…

Angkor Wat: From Prosperous Kings to Lara Croft

Angkor Wat: From Prosperous Kings to Lara Croft

In my previous post, I gave you guys a little bit of information about visiting the old capital of the Khmer Empire, aka Angkor, and began to told you my hot and tiresome yet wonderful experience. I would have told you all about it in one post, but we both know you wouldn’t have read past the third paragraph and would have just gone straight to check how long the post was, be…

Angkor Wat: Temples, Faces & Mean Monkeys

Angkor Wat: Temples, Faces & Mean Monkeys

Every country in Southeast Asia has its “thing” they are recognised by. Thailand has the islands with their gorgeous beaches and crazy parties, Vietnam has the green mountains and the motorcycle rides, Indonesia has volcanoes and rice terraces, etc. And Cambodia? Cambodia has Angkor Wat. Sure, there’s more than that, but the temple complex of Angkor is the number one reason travelers visit the country. My friend Buyana and I…

Three Is Better Than Two

Three Is Better Than Two

GUYS! I’m still on planet Earth! I know, it’s been a long hiatus. But life happens sometimes and so does procrastination, and the results are always the same: you end up binge-watching re-runs of your favourite TV series and spend way too much time complaining about your laziness…without moving a finger. Oh, the irony! However, I have been active on Tumblr and Facebook, so follow me on those accounts if…

Find The Extra In Ordinary

Find The Extra In Ordinary

The theme for this week’s photo challenge is (extra)ordinary, as it refers to the act of finding meaning in mundane, simple things. It might seem like a hard theme (or not…just me?), but the moment you start to consciously look around you and appreciate the little things, everything suddenly has a value in your eyes. Yes, cheesy and maybe even cliché, but not everybody is aware of that. We are…
