    It was -28 degrees, and it was starting to get dark outside.

    The little wooden hut that I was in with some of my colleagues was fairly warm and cosy, thanks to the lively fire that I had started earlier that afternoon. However, outside the hus...

    It was midnight when I got down at a bus stop called the "115 miles" somewhere in the Yangon-Mandalay expressway. I had to run and find a loo for myself. But in that huge, crowded place I was not quite sure how to do it. That's when I came up with...

    Wales is probably one of the most beautiful countries you’ve never heard of. When tourists travel around the UK, focus is primarily on England, Scotland and even Ireland. WALES is often neglected from a visitor’s travel itinerary. Boy, are they mi...

    While there were many battle sites during the Civil War, none of them are as famous as Gettysburg. We were able to visit this massive destination a few years ago for a Boy Scout campout and it was quite different than what I thought it would be l...

    What's a perfect 2-day itinerary in London, UK?
    Cheapest option would be to get from Stansted Airport to Liverpool Station.
    Liverpool station is located right in the city of London, near famous Gherkin tower.

    From there you can rent a bike an...

    There were four big tough-looking men staring at me with knives in their hands.

    The white overalls that they were wearing were smattered with blood stains. Was I in the right place I wondered? This was the address that I had been given. Ther...

    New York City is somewhat of a magical place to me. It’s the absolute opposite to my hometown in the Welsh Valleys and that’s what makes it all the more amazing for me! I dragged myself through airport maximum security and into the big apple. You ...

    Meteora is unlike any other place I’ve been. When I told my friend I was going to Greece, she said told me I HAVE to make a stop in Meteora. I quickly Googled it and my jaw dropped. It was absolutely unfathomable. For those that don’t know, Meteor...

    I am always amazed when I hear stories about people running into celebrities during their travel. However, I have always considered myself unlucky enough to ever have one of those encounters.

    Boy, was I wrong!

    A few years ago, I was on a ...

    I have my share of camping stories. At a young age, my parents would arrange summer roadtrips just before heading back to school. For me, it was all carefree. I’d hunt for frogs and go canoeing with my friends while the adults did all the work.

    North of Vietnam is the remote and sleepy town of Sapa; famed for its rice fields, impressive mountains and humbling homestays. After a glorious 12 hour bus journey from Hanoi, I arrived in Sapa just as the day was about to begin. I was greeted by...

    Everyone has big dreams that they’re too scared to follow. It could be a dream job, starting your own business, achieving that family with your dream house. For me, it was to travel. But even though travelling is something that is done worldwide, ...

    In late June, 2018 I went along with a few friends on a motorcycle tour. The main reasons were to ride the Blue Ridge Parkway and become immersed in the whole country music experience in Nashville. Also, personally, my youngest was getting married...

    I have had quite the history of being afraid of animals since I was little and almost bit in the face by a dog. To say it mildly, I have stayed away from creatures of all kinds for many years!

    However, a few years ago, my family and I traveled...

    People in Turkey are hospitable, generous and curious about us, bicycle tourers. Many of them try to talk to us, but usually we cover only the basics because of the language barrier. Once we were buying bread in a town the usual crowd surrounded ...

    Being a Westerner growing up in the 70's and 80's, I actually never really had Japanese food until I was in my teens. Even then, it was usually just the Bento box and if feeling brave, some sushi. I'm not really sure how the food scape changed, bu...

    Every day around 7PM he's here, maybe it's just a healthy habit to take a walk in the neighborhood after dinner. He looks like he's in his early 70s, a bit hunchback. He always sits down at the same yellow bench by this tree and lights up a cigare...

    In April of this year, my Fiance and I took a weekend trip to the Big Island of Hawaii to hike to active lava. Little did we know that just a few weeks after our departure, the Big Island would experience an earthquake that would cause an eruption...
