On the 27th of Feb Fred, Con and I flew from Bangkok to Manila in the Philippines. The flight took around 3 hours and was as uneventful as a flight should be. Although Fred was a little disappointed as he was the only one who didn’t get an inflight meal. Although to be honest he... Continue Reading →

Full Moon Party & Koh Samui

After an amazing week on Koh Tao learning to dive and spending time on my favourite Thai island to date, we transferred to Koh Pha Ngan on 20th of Feb. This also happened to be the day of the famous full moon party. When we arrived on the island we checked into our hostel and... Continue Reading →

Scuba Diving Koh Tao

It’s safe to say since starting out on our travels I couldn’t wait to get to Koh Tao and go scuba diving. I’ve known about this little island in the Gulf of Thailand for a while now and its reputation as a scuba diving Mecca. I certainly wasn’t disappointed. The day finally arrived on the...

Thai Islands Week 2

After Koh Lanta, we made our way to Krabi which was a 4-hour minivan ride away. Krabi, however, is more specifically the region and we stayed at a place called Ao Nang beach, just around the bay from the popular Railay beach. Our first night in Ao Nang was Chris’s last night so we all... Continue Reading →

Thai Islands Week 1

First stop in the Thai islands was Phuket, the 4 of us flew in from Siem Reap on the 27th of January. On descent to the runway, it looked like we were going to crash into the sea due to how close the runway was to the beach itself. You would likely get some great... Continue Reading →

Battambang & Siem Reap

Before we were able to enjoy what Battambang had to offer we first had to make the big 18-hour journey from Koh Rong Sanloem to Battambang (23rd of Jan). Now, this would have been pretty bad when feeling healthy but seeing as at 6 am that morning I was awake throwing my guts up its... Continue Reading →

Koh Rong Sanloem

We arrived on Koh Rong Sanloem on the 16th of January and would be spending a week here to chill out and relax after being on the road now for just under 3 months. The first few nights were unlikely to be that relaxing though as we had opted to stay at a hostel called... Continue Reading →

Phnom Penh & Kampot

Thank you for all the kind messages of support on the last blog, it definitely helps me to keep writing knowing that people are not only reading the blog but enjoying it too. It makes it all worthwhile when sometimes I struggle to find the time or motivation, so I hope it continues to be... Continue Reading →

Final Week in Vietnam

Firstly, apologies for the time it has taken for me to write this blog the last week or so in Vietnam has been pretty busy with lots of travelling around and simply I spent the time enjoying myself and sleeping on buses as opposed to finding the time or energy to keep you all updated...

Hue & Hoi An

We arrived in Hue after the long overnight bus journey south on the 27th. The sunny weather we also unfortunately left behind in Ha Long too as it was pissing it down in Hue. After sorting ourselves out at the hostel Ollie and I decided to head out and explore the city a little, Fred... Continue Reading →
