Huc Bridge – Hanoi

Whilst in Hanoi we visited the famous Huc Bridge which is set on the beautiful Hoán Kien Lake. It’s a small red footbridge which takes you from the main pavement to Jade Island where the Jade Temple is. This lake and bridge is especially pretty when lit up in the evenings or around sunset. If …

Halong Bay

Who could travel to Hanoi or even any part of Northern Vietnam and not indulge themselves in Halong Bay? The natural stone islands were the perfect to film Kong: Skull Island but it’s also the perfect place for anyone who wants to take time out and enjoy a gift from Mother Nature. I ventured out …

The Lanterns of Hoi An

Lanterns. They light up Hoi An at night, make it picturesque and is a large part of the city’s history. When wandering around the little streets of the Old Town you’ll never be short of a view of hanging lanterns above. Bright, beautiful colours and hand painted patterns beam out light to the streets.

Backpackers galore, scouts everywhere and restaurants and alternative cafes on every corner. I knew I was going to like it there. Although busier and more crowded than say Barcelona Las Ramblas, …

My Healer

When I first arrived in Bali, I wasn’t very well. I was jet-lagged and completely lost my appetite for 5 days after landing so I was taken to a Healer. My host, Ketut, took me to her Healer. If any if you have seen the film Eat, Love, Pray with Julia Roberts then you’ll understand …

Weekends in Bali

Volunteering 4 days a week, we got 3 days off a week to explore the wonderful Island of Bali. In the four weekends I was there I managed to fit a lot in. I must admit that I didn’t do any of this alone as I always went with the other volunteers. Having those people with …

5 Days in Hoi An – Vietnam

I felt like I was stepping back in time when I walked through the town, lanterns everywhere, small shops, and lovely locals. This little city is my favourite place in Vietnam. As there are so many different reasons for falling in …
