Colours of Marrakech

Marrakech has been long on my wanderlust list of places to visit and we managed to squeeze in five days on our recent trip.

The chaos is unique in is own right and it truly was as eclectic as all the images and stories promised. For those who are thinking of heading over and immersing yourself in Moroccan…

Colours of Hong Kong

I am no stranger to colour in both my style and photography, and I truly believe that being surrounded by colour can change the way you think and feel. I’ve always considered myself to be a somewhat tech geek and have tried many different cameras in my time, but no one has been able to…

Discover Bangkok in 2 Days

I arrived in Bangkok four days earlier than the rest of the #ContikiAsia16 crew (read part one of the trip here) to explore a city that most would have a love hate relationship with.

Summer Roadtrip to Ocean Farm

Picture unspoiled hilly grasslands with the occasional herd of cows overlooking an infinite ocean skyline and now throw in an infinite pool amidst this postcard perfect bliss and you have the best coastal getaway property you’ll ever stay at – Ocean Farm.
