Going Solo

Going Solo

Setting out solo can be daunting, particularly traveling as a girl. My first five months backpacking I spent with my sister, my back up; if one of us forgot something, the other probably had it, we could split the price of cabs or even splash […]

Waking The Rain Gods – Rocketfest

Waking The Rain Gods – Rocketfest

Rocket fest was being banded around Vang Vieng when we arrived; on everyone’s lips with mysterious signs pointing to the edge of the town, but none of the backpackers quite knew what it was, just that we wanted to go. We were staying in the […]

By the Seaside – Brighton

By the Seaside – Brighton

My base in Brighton was possibly the poshest student digs I’ve ever seen, my sister has really landed on her feet; what fresher has a 4 storey house with electric gates on the seafront?! Well, she is one street back from the sea front, walking […]

Birds Without Wings and Men Without Sorrow – Kayakoy

Birds Without Wings and Men Without Sorrow – Kayakoy

Before sunrise is the best, but not the most convenient, time to arrive at Kayakoy. We pick our way down the dirty, rutted dust track with phone torches barely illuminating our way until the path opens out onto a bowl containing a couple of restaurants and […]

Temples of Dust – E-biking around Bagan

I arrived in Bagan around 4am and was met by the least friendly taxi drivers I’ve had the displeasure of being hassled by in all of Asia. I and a group of three girls wanted to share a taxi to the Royal Bagan but the […]

Prints in the Mud – Hunting for Tigers in the Sunderbans

The juxtaposition of the stylish, anglicised buildings of the British Raj versus the extreme poverty of the rambling slums, huddled along the sides of roads and rivers, nestled beneath elevated roads in Kolkata, was the most disquieting experience I had in India. Without the comfort […]

It went Koh Rong

It went Koh Rong

We were eager to board the boat to Koh Rong and leave the seedy shores of Sihanoukville, believing we were in for three days of unadulterated tropical paradise; wooden shacks, white sands and clear waters. I whiled the two hour boat trip away trying to […]
