Blurb I never really knew much about New Zealand except for its famous rugby team, the All blacks. I think I recall New Zealand having good lamb meat too. So when I arrived, I didn’t really know what to expect, I thought it may be similar to Australia but I was pleasantly surprised. New Zealand is separated into the North and South islands. I only … Continue reading South New Zealand & Captain America
Blurb Everyone I speak to always says how amazing Australia is! I think it would be like how I view Japan as a place to live and visit, so must be literally heaven on earth! By the way I copied the classic itinerary of going down the East Coast (going up or down doesn’t matter but the majority go up). It would be impossible to … Continue reading East Coast OZ: Does Australia live up to the hype?
Blurb Cape Town is almost like an alien city compared to the rest of South Africa. It is modern, trendy and very cosmopolitan. I was expecting it to have the same reputation of Jo’burg but it really is the opposite, I walked around the city centre during the night, enjoyed its local restaurants without hassle and I didn’t have to pray to the Uber gods … Continue reading My favourite things about Cape Town and its not the penguins
Blurb I spent some time in Cordoba, Puerto Iguazu and Buenos Aires. So the real question is Cordoba V Buenos Aires. If you have seen Batman V Superman then there isn’t one single hero, they are both great cities but which did I prefer and more importantly, which would you prefer? I met a lot of young travellers in Argentina, when I say young usually … Continue reading Cordoba, Buenos Aires and Asado
Blurb People may argue that Peru is the backpackers dream whereas others argue Australia is. However there is no denying that Peru is an amazing country. I stopped in Peru for 9 days but I soon came to realise that I should have spent at least a month in this amazing country. However, in my adventure I knew I just wanted to have a taste … Continue reading Treks and Macchu Picchu: Choosing the right trek for you!
Blurb I made it. I got past security, customs and most importantly Trumps regulations. If you’re politically in the know and you like American War history then you probably know a fair bit about Cuba. The country itself has a rich history from the overthrowing of Batista, Bay of Pigs and changes that came about when Fidel Castro was in power. I didn’t blog about … Continue reading Cuban cigars, Mojitos and Hemingway
Blurb The lights, the noise, bustling crowds and in a city that literally doesn’t sleep. Its allure extends worldwide and it is known as Sin city, where if you tell someone “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” will probably get you a fat grin and a remark “One day, we’ll go with the lads”. Las Vegas, Spanish for “The Meadows”, it actually has a … Continue reading What happens in Vegas..
Blurb LA, Los Angeles, The Angels. Everyone will think of LA and think lights, fame, glory and the silver screen. However if you look past further than the city, you will see a lot more. I arrived after a 7 hour bus journey from San Francisco, I remember it well as the bus driver although friendly, ate his burrito while driving on the highway. Ok, … Continue reading Los Angeles: Glitz and Glamour?
Blurb What a city San Francisco is! A lot of history blended in with culture and sites. It was founded by colonists in Spain and boomed in 1849 due to the Gold rush and continues to grow to this day due to the mass of companies and start ups that reside in the city. When I arrived in San Fran and reached my Airbnb, I … Continue reading Escape to San Francisco
Blurb Whenever someone mentions Seattle, I always think “Sleepless in Seattle”. I actually don’t think I have ever seen the movie but it was a huge hit and any movie with Tom Hanks in it usually has a big following. So how is Seattle? It is an interesting city and definitely has a different feel to other cities I have visited in the past. There … Continue reading Sleepless in Seattle: Just visiting
