Bit of a random one as no one I know could accuse me of being green fingered, but turns out we’ve spent time visiting some awesome gardens on our travels and we wanted to share them with you. When we bought our house, one of the top items on the list of ‘must haves’ was a garden.
I know these kinds of posts are eternally popular with bloggers and perhaps a little over done but I thought I’d hop on the bandwagon anyway. The more I blog the more I tend to read other blogs, and I’m continually adding new ones to my browsing list. I’ve actually always been a fan of reading blogs and whenever I discover one that makes me want to delve back into the archives and continue to check back for new posts I know I’m onto a winner.
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.
You don’t tend to hear a lot of positive reports about Bangkok in our experience. Renowned for everything from temples and palaces to seedy go go bars and night markets, it’s well known globally for its reputation as a party city for backpackers and for some of the more outrageous elements of its nightlife.
I’m pretty sure everyone knows by now that travelling is nowhere near as glamorous as it’s cracked up to be. Yes, ok there’s some beautiful sunsets, stunning scenery and seriously impressive wildlife around the world…
*Okayyyy, cheesy post coming up*
As anyone who knows me will tell you, I can be a little neurotic, and I’m probably the last person anyone would expect to pack up their job and take a career break to go travelling with nothing lined up to come home to.
As part of our inspiration process while planning this trip we read a lot of travel books. I studied English at uni, and have always been a really keen reader although haven’t read much the last couple of years, and Rob reads religiously before bed every night and always has at least one book on the go.
