How to pick the perfect hostel for you

We've been traveling for over 2 months now and for the majority of the time we've been out here, we have been staying in hostels. It's fair to say we've had a few really horrible ones and a few really good ones. I think we've near enough nailed how to get the best hostel out … Continue reading How to pick the perfect hostel for you

Taking some ‘me time’

Travelling with your boyfriend/girlfriend/close friend or family member is great; you're totally comfortable around one another, you know each other so well and you'll more than likely have lots in common. I know for certain I would not be enjoying my travels half as much if I was traveling alone/without Mat, and not only because … Continue reading Taking some ‘me time’

A few of my favourite activities in Northern Vietnam

Just a short one this week to share a few of my favourite things that we've done in Vietnam so far.

My Moon Cup

I'm really keen to write this post, to get rid of the 'period shame' that's so apparent in our society. Since when did it become okay to make women feel embarrassed or disgusting for having a period. FYI, eggs are quite literally chicken's period, and you quite literally would not exist if it were not … Continue reading My Moon Cup

Thailand so far

We started our travels in Bangkok, which was certainly an experience, the heat, the humidity, the chaos, the's definitely one we won't forget! After 3 days there we were very excited for a change of scenery and a slightly less intense environment. We took a 10hour bus to Chiang Mai, which was actually fine … Continue reading Thailand so far

Backpackers packing list

It took me a long time to work out exactly what to take with me and what to leave behind. I'm by no means a minimalist, I have a huge wardrobe that's still full to the brim, I've got shoes coming out my ears and enough toiletries to bathe a pamper a small village. For … Continue reading Backpackers packing list
