179. Let the Adventure Commence

Its been a slow and relaxing few weeks in Mozambique, with a few manta ray spottings and only one arrest. Yes, yes, you read right. I, the biggest goody two shoes to ever roam the face of this planet, spent the hour of 8 am being interrogated by a very hungry police officer who claimed…

159. Finding Your Feet

I had never guessed that solo travelling would be this easy! I seem to never find myself on my own, which was something I had prepared myself for, but during this last week I have hardly had a moment to myself. Also, in moments of doubt help is always quick to find, and you dont…

56. Ice Helped Soothe the Spice

Our last day in Vietnam was spent cowering in fear of the harsh sun… Saigon’s sun is intense! We ran from the hostel to a nearby restaurant, hoping for a cheap last meal. We were also hoping for quick service, as we had a bus to catch. This was not the case. Lucky me, I…

2. Don’t forget the time difference.

Day two, and here we are sitting in the plane headed to Seoul – but only by luck! Arriving in Moscow, we took our sweet time eating in one of the countless cafes and chilling and thinking we had four hours to kill before boarding the second plane. However, this was apparently not the case….
