My Balinese Day Trip

Gianyar, Indonesia

I’ve done a lot of day trips in my time as a traveler, but this is one that I’m especially proud of – it’s another step towards this traveling independently thang that every bodies’ talking about.

Usually I’ll hunt down a tour and let a company put it all together, but for my day out in Gianyar, Indonesia, I spoke to a private driver, shared what I wanted to see and let him do all of the driving. All I had to do was enjoy myself… and things were a lot better when I brought a new friend along.  Continue reading “My Balinese Day Trip”

So Dam Worth It!

Call this an upgrade of a previous post – it really did need some fine tuning. Amsterdam is one of my favourite cities to date and I encourage all to give it a try. A few days won’t hurt you.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The promise to myself was that I couldn’t re-read Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman until I had this bad boy online… so here we are kiddies (I’ve yet to full re-read the book) and you can thank my numerous pagan deities if you will. I’m talking about Amsterdam, a city of wooden shoes, a serious and devout love for the bicycle and THE sexiest place I’ve ever been! Maybe it’s best that the little people don’t read this in depth.

Fiji, The Best Place For An Anxiety Attack!


Inexperienced young travellers from around the Pacific Rim (Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada etc) who suffer from the above titled bastard condition might find these words more than beneficial.

This post has a touch of destination and musings to it, but it’s mostly about the wonderful people (I am not kidding!) you’ll find there. The title should’ve given it away by now, and the use of BULA! but just in case you’re skimming, I’ll just say it – I’m talking about Fijians!

Dublin’s Character Buildings

Top of the morning to you! We’re posting some archived words and today we’ve chosen Dublin, a literary city and easily one of THE best I’ve ever visited. I hope you make it feel welcomed. 

Dublin, Ireland

Out of every country I’ve visited, Ireland might just be the easiest one I’ve moved around in – the convenience is just too good kiddies (I’d originally intended on doing a tour but my Irish friend convinced me not to, and he was right) and the same can be said for its capital, Dublin.

The End Of The World

Gibraltar, British Territory

We’re talking locations again, and I’ve settled for… Gibraltar! I know, we’re going the way of British territories, and that is why I’ve placed this post in the ‘England’ section in Destinations – don’t blame me, blame Churchill, Mrs May and the monkeys.

Once described as ‘the end of the world’ by those in the pre ‘the Earth is actually round’ era (Greeks and Phoenicians, I’m looking at you), I first learnt about Gibraltar whilst watching a cartoon during the lamb years (it was The Mummy series which I found rather entertaining – again, locations sell!) An animated Evie Carnahan (sorry Maria Bello but Rachel Weisz will always come first) described Gibraltar for what it was once considered… so my intrigue took off.
