Koh Phi Phi to Phuket

It’s been a little while since I last posted! I’ve been very busy doing not very much 🙂 At the moment I’m sat in Melbourne airport waiting for my flight to Sydney, so have some time to write about my last week in Asia, which was spent on the island of Phi Phi and also […]

Chiang Mai to Phuket by bus

I’ve left Chiang Mai and am now in Phuket, in a McDonalds near my hotel. It’s food that isn’t rice and there is free wifi (my hotel’s wifi wasn’t the best). In about 45 minutes, I’m getting picked up from my hotel to get the 1:30pm ferry to Phi Phi, where I’ll sunbathe and party […]

Driving north to Vang Vieng from Vientiane was quite something. The minibus was comfortable but zooming over pot holes and overtaking on sharp bends […]

The temples of Vientiane, Laos

This morning I left my comfy dorm bed in Hanoi to arrive in Vientiane, Laos! The capital city, it has a certain undisturbed charm that Hanoi and Phnom Penh clearly have lost over the years. No moped horns beeping, your life isn’t at risk walking across the road, and the air smells so much nicer. […]

Hanoi to Ha Long Bay to Hanoi Part Two

Yesterday I had to wake up super early (okay 7am) to take a four hour bus ride to Ha Long Bay, and boy was it worth it! I met some really cool people on my bus (one of them had been at the same bar I was at a few days ago, the other side […]
