Penang, Malaysia

I wanna start writing about China but I've still not even reached the end of the 2015 Asia trip. My laziness strikes again, let's resume with the penultimate stop - Penang. After lounging about by the pool in Langkawi for a few days it was time to jump back into 'proper travelling'. We took the... Continue Reading →


Part 1: Barcelona, Spain

At the moment I'm living in Catalonia, about 90 minutes south of Barcelona on the train. My town is pretty... sleepy, it's very nice and I'm sure it's about to get busier now the weather's improving but it's not an international city with lots of history. Trips to Barcelona are needed. When I found this... Continue Reading →

Langkawi, Malaysia

Confession: I feel like a fraud writing this post. I don't really like beaches and almost look down on people who just go off for 2 weeks to the seaside without taking in any culture or trying new experiences. Each to their own but I think there's a lot more to travel. However, after probably... Continue Reading →


I should be lesson planning but that isn't very appealing right now, let's blog instead.

Either way, I want to see authentic Cuba, the almost-untouched-by-the-US Cuba. And although Japan was tempting me big time, it's now official....... Continue Reading →

Hoi An, Vietnam

Returning to the Southeast Asia trip - the next stop while we worked our way down Vietnam was Hoi An. Hoi An is a small city and a lot more relaxed than other parts of Vietnam. I'm looking at you Ho Chi Minh. The old town is full of boutique shops and the walls are... Continue Reading →

Plane shots 

Taken on a phone through a window, obviously the quality isn't quite there but I still like these photos taken from the sky. The first must be France/northern Spain and the second is Hong Kong.

Food in London 

I've just got in from a little day trip down to London, from my town it's only about 22 minutes on the train (if you catch the right train). I am lucky to live closeby, I'm a big fan of London - it's got almost everything to offer. Particularly when it comes down to food!... Continue Reading →
