Bangkok Moon Bar

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. Picture gridlocked traffic at almost all hours of the day, thousands of temples that can be found on every second corner and…

Ocean Farm

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. I assembled my crew of miscreants on a recent road trip to the…

Khao Sok National Park

Contiki Asia 16 – Part One

Jungles and small huts vanishing past the window as fast as they appear, patchy torrential rain falling on our 10-seater as it speeds down the windy road towards the pier. It’s been eight hours and counting since we left our jungle tree house in the heart of Khao San National Park, 24 hours since we were…

Hotel Hopping with Ovolo Group in Hong Kong

I know you’ve all noticed that I’ve been spending a lot of time in Hong Kong as of late – it’s almost becoming a second home to me with my second family quickly growing in the city (you know who you are). In just two short trips to the concrete jungle, I’ve met such a…

A Weekend In Wine Country

  When the life of running the interminable rat race gets the better of you, lets face it; with all the social media and digital stimulation we have engulfing every waking moment of our existence – sometimes you just want to voluntarily submit yourself to a digital detox. Unfortunately, in a bloggers line of work…

Home Away From Home in LA

  LA – the city where stars are born, hopeful adolescents drift in and out to realize their dreams of stardom only to be confronted with the truth that everyone is there for the exact same purpose. Quite possibly the only city I’ve visited where people aren’t fazed by the fact that two girls can…

Ik Kil Cenote – Yucatan

The first highlight from my recent Mexico trip that I wanted to share with you all is Ik Kil Cenote. The entire reason I woke up one morning in February and called the first travel agent Google spat out to book my flights for March was to see this. After reading Jessica Stein’s blog back…

Ovolo 1888 Darling Harbour

Imagine a loft suite with high ceilings in a converted former wool store where you can stylishly enter and leave as your inner diva desires through your own private rockstar entrance. Thank you Ovolo 1888 for making my dreams of being the ultimate diva come true. The hotel combines historic charm with modern simplicity perfectly…

Yacht Week Thailand – PT I

About three weeks before Christmas I was asked by The Yacht Week if I wanted to join them in Thailand over Christmas. Naturally – who could say no to a week of sailing and sunshine around the Andaman? I’ve found myself with almost three and a half hours worth of video footage and have decided…
