Three Days in Vang Vieng – The Most Beautiful Place in Laos

I wish I could have spent so much longer here. We already had to extend our stay to spend three days in Vang Vieng as to be honest, given the stories about it being a bit of a magnet for travellers acting like dickheads and more of a party town than anything else, we were pretty sure we’d hate it. Whilst we’re not averse to a good night out we’re not exactly major party people, and at nearly (ahem) thirty years old we didn’t fancy hanging out with a bunch of wasted 18 year olds.

10 Amazing Things To Do In Inle Lake

Inle Lake was our absolute favourite place in Myanmar. Although some travellers find it a little touristy – especially in the context of the wider country which has relatively few tourists – we loved it. It has a laid back and chilled atmosphere, making it the perfect place to spend a few days relaxing and taking in what’s on offer. There are so many awesome things to do in Inle Lake we could have spent at least a week here.

10 of the Most Beautiful Sunsets from Around the World

A Day Trip to Milford Sounds, New Zealand

Milford Sounds is not really a sound at all. In geological terms, a sound is a passage that is formed from the freezing of river water, which turns into millions of tons of glacial ice. This ice tears huge chunks out of the neighbouring mountains. Over thousands of years the relentless pressures of so much ice split widen the gaps turning them into valleys. These valleys eventually fill with sea water to become what is known as a ‘Sound’.

Franz Josef Or Fox Glacier: To Hike Or To Helicopter?

Located on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island are the Franz Josef and Fox glaciers – probably the most famous of the country’s many glaciers.

Our Amazon Nightmare

This post started out as a recollection of the main events from our disastrous tour of the Amazon jungle in Puerto Maldonado, Peru. It then warped into a creative writing piece written in the third person that was supposed to make it easier for me to write about these traumatic events.
