Next week we are attending our 2nd Tbex conference in Athens, Greece. Tbex is the world’s largest gathering of travel bloggers, writers and new media creators. Last year it was held in Dublin, Ireland, hence today’s image.  Without a shadow of doubt, it was the best conference we ever attended. Not only did we learn […]

How we gatecrashed a Japanese pop stars wedding in Tokyo

Two Asahi please we asked the barman. No problem he said in perfect English. As we waited for our beers we looked around the bar and was impressed at how the clientele really took the night’s wedding theme to heart. We knew the Japanese liked dressing up but this was another level entirely. There were […]

The Friday Photo Project | Great Barrier Reef Diving

Reef Diving

One of the last places we visited on our 18 month trip was Australia. Probably not a wise move as we were broke and Australia is bloody expensive! Lucky enough we had friends and family to stay with from Perth to Melbourne. As avid scuba-diving fans we really wanted to dive the great barrier reef, […]

How I got bitten by a snake in Thailand

Bitten by a snake

It was another glorious sunny day in Pai, Thailand. We had been out all morning doing whatever we needed to do when really we had nothing to do at all. Ahhh, the freedom of travel. We jumped on our moped and headed back to our wonderful bungalow which was slightly out of town. The ride […]

I feel in love with […]

The Friday Photo Project | San Diego Bay Sunset

San Diego Bay Sunset

Have you ever really sat and watched a sunset, alone? On my recent trip to San Diego, after a first day of orienting myself with the new city, as evening approached I sat myself on a bench looking out over the water. It was my first sunset and I just let myself get swept away […]

Memories of early travels | Sleeping in a manga cafe in Tokyo vlog

Sleeping in a manga cafe

Have you ever turned up in a megacity and decided that you would not book accommodation? We hadn’t either until we arrived in Tokyo. But after hearing about the DVD rooms and Manga Cafes that double up as accommodation for stranded train travellers we just had to try it. Could there be anything more Japanese than […]
