Vietnam was one of the places I most excited about visiting during our trip. I’d heard such good things about the country and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. From the craziness of Ho Chi Minh city to the lantern lit streets of Hoi An to the beautiful scenery of Da Lat, Vietnam has something for everyone and with each city contrasting from the last, it’s a place where you can never get bored. We started our 3 week Vietnamese adventure in Hanoi where we began to work our way down from

A relaxing backpacker retreat with a laid back hippie vibe, the town of Pai is nestled into Northern Thailand’s beautiful mountainous landscape. It’s a place that wasn’t originally on our itinerary but one that must make it onto yours. The stunning views from various viewpoints throughout the town will leave you with enough Instagram content for weeks, the beautiful waterfalls will allow you a fun way to cool down from the scorching Thai rays and the night markets offering a wide selection of delicious cuisines will keep you well and

A trip to Thailand doesn’t quite feel complete without coming face to face with some elephants. Bathing these beautiful creatures is one of Chiang Mai’s top tourist attractions which has resulted in a large number of companies offering the activity, making it extremely hard to decide who to hand over your hard earned pennies to. My number one rule for choosing which company to go with is to look for a sanctuary that looks after and cares for the elephants and one that does NOT offer riding. I love animals and

You could say that we went from one end of the spectrum to the other after departing Dubai and arriving in Bangkok. From a super modern and almost peaceful place to the mayhem of tuk-tuk drivers, street food stalls and loud music. It was very different to say the least. Arriving late at night on Khao San Road trying to find the sign for our accommodation amongst the herds of tourists partying on the street and locals trying to usher us into their bars, convincing us to buy buckets, shots

We booked our flights for travelling through STA Travel which I’ll go into more detail about in a later post. The first flight we booked was London Gatwick to Bangkok which included a stop in Dubai for a few hours. We decided instead of stopping for a few hours, we would stay in Dubai for a couple of days and break up that extra long journey to Bangkok which also meant we’d get to explore Dubai, a place neither of us had been to before. The night before we flew, we

On our very first date my boyfriend and I spoke about how we would love to go travelling one day but never did I think 3 years on we’d actually be about to set off on our journey together. I’m currently writing this as an excited but emotional and nervous wreck at the thought that shortly I’ll be sat on a plane heading into the unknown. Travel is one of my biggest passions. There is nothing I love more than discovering new places and I hate staying in one place for too

Grab a cup of tea, you’re in for a long one! Seeing everyone graduating recently made me think back to my graduation a whole 3 years ago now. I can’t even describe how quickly that 3 years has gone by or to be honest, how quickly the 3 years at university went by either. It’s a topic I’ve never really touched upon since I actually graduated when I wrote a no doubt cringe-worthy post back in 2014 which you can have a little laugh at here if you fancy. I’m

When I was younger, I thought by 24 I’d have my own business and be living in a penthouse apartment in New York overlooking Central Park and spending my evenings drinking cocktails and dining at the fanciest of restaurants. In reality, I’m currently sat in my bedroom in Leeds working, constantly wondering why the money in my bank account just goes so quickly when I have nothing to show for it and well, a holiday to New York would be a dream let alone living there. I wanted to be

There is nothing I love more than going on holiday. If I had the money, I would just spend my time hopping on and off planes and discovering different places. Now March is here and the days are getting that bit longer and the sun is finally starting to appear, it’s that time of year where we’re planning our holidays and working out where to go. You want a place that’s going to please everyone you’re going with and have you talking about it long after you’ve stepped off the plane

Yep you heard me right…Chocolate Chip, Oreo and Nutella fluffy pancakes! Could a dessert be anymore perfect?! Pancakes should not just be for pancake day. They should be for everyyy day of the year! Okay maybe not, I don’t think our waistlines would thank us for that but if you’re looking for an indulgent treat to impress guests or just have all to yourself (I won’t tell anyone!) then you’ve come to the right place. I’d never made American style pancakes before and I was determined to give them a try. Luckily,
