Chiang Mai Travel Tips

Travel

If you’re headed to North Thailand you probably have three destinations in mind: Chiang Mai, Pai and Chiang Rai. Unfortunately a tight schedule meant I could only visit Chiang Mai, but I can’t imagine the other two being greatly different to be honest.

Uluwatu Travel Tips

Travel

For some reason Uluwatu felt like a little bit more effort and a greater commitment than visiting anywhere else in Bali, possibly because it’s down south in the Bukit, which means there’s less to continue onto afterwards. If your plan is to find some excellent surf spots and Bali’s best beaches, it’s totally worth the trip.

Ubud Travel Tips

Travel

Beyond the “Eat, Pray, Love” experiences being sold by every travel agent in Bali, Ubud has a lot to see and do to make you feel like you’re back on track exploring after you probably spent longer-than-needed in Kuta. There are still some attractions worth skipping, but most experiences in Ubud are rather unique and enjoyable.

Kuala Lumpur Travel Tips

Travel

What do people expect before their first visit to Kuala Lumpur? I expected a really exciting and cultural asian city with beautiful scenery and nearby authentic Malaysian villages. I was disappointed. Kuala Lumpur is a very normal busy city that I disliked pretty quickly, but after a few days the stress of the place wore off and it wasn’t actually that bad. It’s not great, but there’s definitely stuff to enjoy.

Burgas Travel Tips

Travel

It doesn’t take long in Burgas to realise there’s not really much there. It’s billed as a big city but a short stroll will show you otherwise. This post is actually a lie; it’s all about Sunny Beach. Located just north of Burgas, it’s where really REALLY dumb people that lack any kind of personality go to act out what they believe is partying and pretend they know how to have fun.

Belgrade Travel Tips

Travel

Belgrade is a real eastern-European capital city. I’m guessing you’re thinking of skipping Serbia and this part of Europe entirely? Don’t. I had the misconception of it being a rough place where I’d be in danger – it was actually pretty bloody cool. I’m gonna try and keep this positive as I really want more people to give Belgrade a chance.

Ljubljana Travel Tips

Travel

Knowing Slovenia is beautiful but with no idea where to head first, it made sense to visit the capital city to meet people and gather information. Ljubljana is not what I would expect from a capital city; it’s small, quiet, surrounded by beautiful scenery and a generally relaxed place.

Budapest Travel Tips

Travel

Nobody has ever said “don’t go to a Budapest, it’s shit” for a reason. I was actually put off purely because I was sick if hearing about the place! Eventually though, Budapest was in my way and I was too lazy to go around it. People were right; Budapest fucking rocks.

Brno Travel Tips

Travel

I’ll let you know immediately that I HATED Brno, so this is going to be a pretty grumpy post. I think if you’re already going you should read on, because when you don’t encounter these same issues, you’ll probably love Brno – everyone else I know did.

Essaouira Travel Tips

Travel

Essaouira has grown on me. My first visit was one of confusion and my lack of preparation left me wondering why I was there. It felt like a small, windy and boring Marrakech, but it’s actually so much more.

Marrakech Travel Tips

Travel

A city that can exhaust, frustrate and disgust you, but leave you wanting more – Marrakech was my first venture outside of Europe and I had a whale of a time with no real plan or idea what on earth I was doing. I have visited since and must say this city changes INCREDIBLY quickly, so take my pointers as advice rather than fact and explore for yourself!

Köln Travel Tips

Travel

When Megabus started offering £20 trips to Europe I hopped aboard an overnight shuttle to Cologne to explore what was billed as a beautiful student city. Unfortunately I went during a week of torrential downpour and had a bit of a naff time, but I’ll try again one day as there were some incredible sights in this old-styled city.

Amsterdam Travel Tips

Travel

One of my favourite cities in the world, my first non-holiday travel and one I will keep repeating for the rest of my life. A city with endless beauty to marvel at and action at every corner, yet the most relaxing and homely city I’ve ever visited. Every building is a work of art, every street welcomes you with open arms and there’s never a sense of boredom when mindlessly strolling through the canal-constricted cobbled streets of Amsterdam.
