Blurb Its been a while. Alot has happened this last year, after the world tour I slowed down with the travelling. I have had short breaks to Dublin and had a stag do in Prague.

However people thought I had thrown in … Continue reading After travelling the world, some tips and life after travel.
Food to try in Vietnam When I arrived in Vietnam, I realised that there were other dishes apart from beef pho. I scratched my head and thought, where do I begin. I did some reading around dishes to try. Mark Wiens and Youtube were both super useful in concocting a list that would make Anthony Bourdain proud. I’m no foodie but I definitely enjoy tasting … Continue reading What to eat in Vietnam? No seriously.

It is sandwiched between Thailand, Vietnam and sits on top of Cambodia. While I was sitting in my room in Phnom Penh and chilling with a fellow traveller (Tristan!), I … Continue reading What’s a Lao?
Blurb I want to say I liked Cambodia and maybe it is controversial to say the opposite but I didn’t enjoy staying in Cambodia. In comparison to other South East Asian countries and other places I have visited in the world, unfortunately I don’t think I will be visiting anytime soon. I want to talk about what was good and what was bad but don’t … Continue reading Good, Bad and Cambodia

I only … Continue reading South New Zealand & Captain America
