    I run a travel website for road cyclists and write guides to some of the world’s most amazing road cycling destinations. This means I have quite a lot of experience of planning rides in new destinations and am usually pretty spot on with estimating h

    The first time I travelled to Shanghai, I was walking down the street, simply wandering around. I walked into a small clothing shop to browse around and came across a great shirt that I immediately loved. I went over to the shop owner and began my fi

    Whenever you visit Southeast Asia, chances are you will meet people with a motorbike. Riding a scooter or motorbike all the way down Vietnam for example has always been a rite of passage for first-time visitors.

    It's always a nice surprise when your aunt calls you up to say she's bringing you to a 5-star resort somewhere in China. So was the case one summer and I was ecstatic!

    I had been living in Shanghai for about a year (and kinda slumming it)

    My husband and I just got married in Greece last month, and we took our honeymoon in Vienna, Budapest, London, Moscow and Vancouver. Budapest was one of our favorite cities! We found no shortage of great food, both traditional Hungarian and fusion fr

    When I return to Thailand in 2018, I made the small backpacking town of Pai a must see, and I’m so glad I did! Surrounded by beautiful mountains and with a friendly vibe throughout the whole town, I enjoyed my 3 days here.

    Growing up in the welsh valleys, I’m quite used to hiking, camping and being deep within nature for long periods of time without having technology withdrawals. But the Thai Jungle located in Doi Inthanon in the North of Thailand was the most incredib

    I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.

    Of all the places I've been in Europe, Lisbon is one of my favorite cities. It is just so distinctly European - the hills, the roads, the beautiful yellow trams, the buildings, the churches, the culture, the cuisine, the little old ladies who as

    A few years ago, my family and I drove down to the state of Georgia to spend a week away from the hustle and bustle of life. We chose an out of the way destination, so that we didn't need to worry about crowds and other tourists.

    Wales often gets missed out of people’s UK travel itineraries and British must-see places and as much as I want to keep the stampede of tourists out so we can perserve the beauty of this country, it also frustrates me that travellers and UK visitors

    I've been to Europe now about 20 times for business and pleasure and while I have many favorites, Italy will always have a special place in my heart as it was the first country I visited back in the 90's. Just recently I was back to Venice

    A few weeks ago, my family and I were down in the Poconos region of Pennsylvania. We stayed in Shawnee-on-Delaware, and while there isn't much to do there, we managed to find a few diamonds in the rough.
