    How to pack for a hostel

    Jun072013

    Hostels are great for many reasons. One of these is price – they’re a lot cheaper than hotels. They don’t offer some of the perks a hotel offers though, so when packing for them you'll need to bring along a few more items and be mindful of how you pack them.

    Solo travel in a group…that works!

    May272013

    Are you really travelling solo when you take a group tour? Some people say no but I say yes. At least, now I do. Until last month, I was an independent solo traveller. And yes, I was a bit of a snob about it. I thought independent travel was much, much better than going in a group.

    Getting off the beaten track in Southeast Asia

    May102013

    I have ventured into Istanbul three times - wandered numerous back alleys of the historic old district of Sultanahmet, broached the enigmatic Bosphorus Strait to cross continental divides from Europe to Asia and back again, visited famous landmarks more than once - and have never tired of any view.

    6 great wildlife experiences in West Africa

    Apr222013

    While Southern and Eastern Africa are much more famous for potential wildlife experiences, West Africa is largely overlooked. From primates to crocs, to forest and savannah elephants, there are plenty of animal experiences here in the region. The difference, of course, is that you’ll have to dig a little deeper to get to these spots. But the bright side is there’s a good chance you’ll have them all to yourself.

It's a place that's captivated my heart not once but three times now and I'm sure I'll be going back there again someday. With over 50 temples to explore, some hidden in forest, others standing majestically in open fields, there's a lot to take in here and you'll never fit it all in to one trip.
