Hiking in Hong Kong

Hong Kong. The most densely populated city in the world with twice the number of skyscrapers than New York City. Just arriving from Bangkok, this was the second stage of our journey around Asia. This concrete jungle is surrounded by lush countryside and hills, on which are countless walks and hiking trails. Some take you further out where the mass of buildings become a blur in…

Bridge Over The River Kwai

Bangkok, Thailand. The starting point for our South East Asian trip consisting of Thailand, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City and Tokyo. We didn’t actually spend too much time here, it was more of our travel hub to our other destinations but we still saw some of the city and we also ventured further north by train to something I’ve wanted to do for a very…

Eastern European Road Trip

Zagreb, Croatia was the start and end point for our road trip. We saved looking around the city to our return visit so picked the car straight up from the airport and hit the road. Our itinerary: Croatia: Zagreb -> Split -> Dubrovnik, then over to Kotor in Montenegro, up into Bosnia & Herzegovina: Mostar -> Sarajevo before heading back round to Zagreb to finish. Before…

The City of Seven Hills

Lisbon, Portugal. One of the oldest European cities and famous for standing on seven hills (actually eight), the most striking thing about Lisbon is the steep and narrow cobbled streets in every direction. At the bottom of the hills there are layers of houses stacked up all around you, and at the top, fantastic views across the city and beyond. See all my photos from our…

Christmas in NYC

New York, USA. We visited this bustling metropolis just before Christmas 2015, and they sure know how to celebrate the holidays! The decorations on every corner are spectacular with no expense spared, it is a sight to behold and everyone should experience this time of year in New York city at least once. See all my photo highlights from our trip below.

Driving in Tuscany

Tuscany, Italy, was the main feature of our Italian road trip but we also explored the surrounding areas including the beautiful Cinque Terre, See my favourite photos of our trip below.

Hitchhikers Guide to Finland

Finland. Starting in Helsinki we slowly made our way north using only the power of our thumbs! The trickiest part of our trip was getting away from the airport, surrounded by motorways we struggled to find a spot to actually start trying to hitch a ride. Getting people to stop while they are doing 70kmph most of whom are going to Helsinki city centre (the wrong…

Midnight Sun Marathon

Tromso & Olso, Norway. We visited Norway in peak summer to undertake Tromso’s Midnight Sun Marathon. The race starts at 9pm and unless you are a professional athlete or incredibly quick, you will still be running come midnight with the sun still shining. It’s the most northern official marathon and a great one to add to the list with far reaching mountain views making the grueling…

Fiji Time

Fiji, the third leg of our Australasian adventure, we couldn’t resist taking the short flight from Auckland. We based ourselves just outside of Nadi and spent most of our time exploring the many islands that make up Fiji. Bliss! See all of my photo highlights from our trip below:

Kiwi Road Trip

New Zealand, North Island. Our roadtrip was a loop around the North Island starting and ending in Auckland with the main stop offs along the way being -> Hamilton -> Taupo -> Rotorua -> Tauranga -> White Island -> Coromandel. Flying into Auckland we had a little time to explore the city, my friend Sheila was living out there at the time so was really nice…

Blue Mountains

Sydney, Australia. The starting point of our 3 week holiday after the longest journey either of us has ever undertaken. If memory serves me well I believe it was about 33 hours door to door and some very confused body clocks. Sydney is a great city, it’s absolutely vast, all built around the harbour. Everyone is very friendly, you will be asked “How’re you going?” on…

Church of the Assumption

Lake Bled, Slovenia. With little else to do than hire a boat and row yourselves over to the only island in Slovenia where the Church of the Assumption sits, Lake Bled is a very nice place to visit for a day if you are passing through but I wouldn’t make it a destination in it’s self. We actually were in Venice, Italy, and we decided to…
