    It doesn't take very long for a traveller to form observations about the people and destination they're visiting. These are generalizations based on tiny sample sizes and are often incorrect, but always amusing.

    I travel a lot, and I love being in new places, embroiled in new cultures. In fact, it's one of my favourite feelings.

    However, diving straight into Georgia in 2017, I felt like maybe I had bitten off more than I could chew.

    I’ve hiked down in the Grand Canyon twice already so when I took my friends there during another amazing USA Roadtrip, I blindfolded them, lead them to the edge so I could watch them cast their eyes onto the breath-taking views with build-up anticipa

    I have long been a fan of country music, and a few favorites include Reba, Toby, Kenny, Carrie, and Tim and Faith. While I have been to many concerts over the years, none of them compared to the time that I spent in the Grand Ole Opry.

    I think there is less effort walking around on a beach with a metal detector after a crowded weekend. And my hobby is exactly that.

    I never made less than $20. I once found a $15,000 wedding ring but it was quite unique and I felt I could feel rich

    When I initially think of Islands in Thailand, I assumed that the majority of them were situated next to a beach, somewhere south and a little bit of effort to get to. And while it can take a few hours to get to the nearest island from Bangkok, there

    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

    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
