    Sometimes it’s a smell that stops me suddenly, like a spicy curry transporting me back in time to a meal I had with friends in Mumbai many years ago, or a sound that startles me, like the sound of bagpipes that magically remind me of the time I visit

    In 2017 we took a family vacation to Okinawa, Japan. We love exploring local neighborhoods when we travel so we decided to take a long walk around the residential areas near where we were staying.

    There were little restaurants and coffee shops dotte

    Maine had been on my bucket list for some time. I am not sure why I wanted to see this beautiful area of the country, but I do know that I was looking forward to spotting a few moose during my travels!

    When I arrived in Bethel, I was shocked at the

    Vietnam’s marble mountains is a great place to visit, and judging by the busloads of tourists it is extremely popular. Without wanting to fight a constant stream of tourists, I decided on an alternative method to get to Marble Mountains. Leaving from

    In the early spring of 2017, I found myself alone in Tbilisi Georgia.

    I had already been there for over 2 months, and I had just moved to a new AirBnB apartment in another part of town. The new area was Abanotubani, the Old Town quarter, with the

    One of the "must do's" in Ubud, Bali is hike to the highest volcano - Mount Batur - for sunrise and for stunning 360 panoramic views of Ubud. It was only after I booked my tickets that the agent lady thought it would be useful for me t

    I have walked The Strip in Las Vegas dozens of times, including the time when I was still healing from breaking my foot. Let me tell you, there is nothing better than having everyone staring at you because you have a walking boot on and are using cr

    Lopburi is small town about 3 hours north of Bangkok and while it’s one of the oldest cities in Thailand, in recent years it’s become a popular tourist destination for the monkey temple among other things. You can take a minivan to Lopburi from the N

    South Africa is a beautiful country, with many different landscapes. From open, dry Karoo land to the green, lush Drakensberg mountains. Whether you’re looking for the busy city streets or a quiet beach to laze on, South Africa has something for ever

    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 huskies

    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

    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 missi

    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 like

    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 and

    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. There wer

    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 kno

    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 cruise

    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.
