Jeju-Do – The Hawaii of South Korea

I was excited about my 5 day vacation for Korean Thanksgiving (Chuseok), but more so about the fact that I wouldn't have to work for 5 days than the destination in which I was set to spend my time in. Jeju - Do, an island off the South coast of ┬áKorea, is one of the most popular tourist destinations … [Read more...]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

This week's Weekly Photo Challenge is to take and post shots of the sea. As I'm surrently living in the centre of Korea (I'm smack bang in the middle between North and South) I don't have much access to the sea!

Asia’s Largest Bird Park

Asia’s Largest Bird Park

After a few days in KL I was running out of sights to see and activities to do. I had heard about the Bird Park but wasn't sure if I was that bothered forking out 40 Rinngit to see some birds in cages. In the end I teamed up with another traveller from Prague and we set off to the Botanical Gardens. … [Read more...]

Bugs, Plants and Survival – The Cameron Highlands

Bugs, Plants and Survival – The Cameron Highlands

I arrived here by accident, which I must admit, is how many of best experiences happen. I hopped off the boat from the beautiful Perhentian Islands (which I will write about in another post as believe me paradise has its downfalls!), and decided I would get the next bus to Kuala Lumpur.
