A Long Weekend in Laos

Last weekend I visited Laos, more specifically Luang Prabang, where we spent a fabulous four days exploring this gorgeous little town. Being only an hours flight away, Laos has long been on our list to visit but we just hadn’t got around to it so when we finally had a long weekend it was the…

Christmas in the Maldives

We decided to spend Christmas 2017 in the Maldives. It wasn’t my idea, it was my husbands and I have to say its probably one of his best yet. As it was a ‘once in a lifetime’ holiday, we decided to go the whole hog and book a¬†jacuzzi water villa at the Meeru Island Resort…

Gin & Kindles ~ A Spectacular Airbnb in Phuket

The second part of our Phuket holiday was during the late King of Thailand’s funeral and we weren’t really sure of the implications of that so thought it was a good opportunity to hole up in an Air BnB somewhere. The price of accommodation in Phuket through Airbnb is amazing and there is plenty to…

Angkor Wat & Siem Reap, Cambodia

One of my aims since last summer was to visit a few more of the incredible places that are right on our doorstep. Hanoi in September blew me away so when we had another long weekend in October we hopped on a plane to Cambodia (flying time, just over an hour from Bangkok) to visit…

Review ~ Hilocks Hotel and Spa, Siem Reap

We stayed at the Hilocks Hotel and Spa when we visited Siem Reap in October. As well as it getting great reviews and looking lovely, my main reasons for picking it were that it was a little out of town so peaceful but had a regular shuttle into the centre, it had a lovely pool…

Travel Moments of 2017

As 2017 draws to a close, I can’t help but reflect on what really has been an awesome year. We’ve travelled to some incredible places, fallen in love with most of them, and had lots of amazing visitors who, even after three years in Bangkok, continue to come and see us. We really are so…

October Favourites

So, October was pretty hectic but it didn’t stop me finding some favourites! Here’s a roundup of my favourite products, places and even my favourite app of the month! Le Tan Coconut Sun Block This is hands down, without a doubt the best suntan lotion I have ever used. It is so moisturising, smells incredible,…

September Favourites

I thought it was about time I began a monthly favourites series as I seem to be the only blogger out there who doesn’t, which is weird as they are one of my favourite type of posts to read! So without further ado, onto my favourites from September. Monki Face Dress My sister ordered this…

A Long Weekend in Hanoi

To say I fell in love with Hanoi is probably an understatement (I declared we should move there less than 24 hours in…). I loved how unique the culture still is, I loved the hectic, scooter filled streets, I loved the food and the cheap beer and the delicious egg coffee! We were there for…

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai is a city in the north of Thailand, famed for its many temples, glorious food and chilled back vibe! In my three years in Thailand, I have explored many islands and beach areas but had never made it up north so we took my parents with us and spent a few days exploring….

New Year Sydney Style

Sydney and New Year go hand in hand. They are totally synonymous with each other, so of course, when we began planning our ¬†Christmas trip we knew we would have to do the slightly cliched (but bucket list) New Year’s Eve in Sydney! We discovered we had friends from the UK who were also going…

Travel Plans

The last two weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind of travel planning! We have a few long weekends coming up as well as some visitors so had lots of jaunts to sort out and get planned, plus I have been growing increasingly aware that I still haven’t visited Cambodia, Laos or Vietnam –…
