Pods, Palace And A Prince

I have already written about some of the less pleasant, but probably more important sites we vitised while in Phnom Penh, however we did do a few other things while they were there which I would still like to share with you. First off, I want to talk about the hostel we stayed in, Eighty8 … Continue reading Pods, Palace And A Prince

Monkeys Next To Hot Springs

I am sure you have seen the iconic pictures of the snow monkeys in Japan sitting warming themselves in hot springs. I believe they were first made famous by Sir David Attenborough. We decided that the snow monkeys were one of the many animals we wanted to see while in Japan and if we saw … Continue reading Monkeys Next To Hot Springs

Sun On Loch Tay

It has been about three months since we got back from our big adventure, and while I am still not yet caught up with the blogs, I was getting itchy feet again and we needed some time away. Our wedding anniversary was the perfect excuse, and while we are still on a post travel budget … Continue reading Sun On Loch Tay

Beach Days

After our rock climbing adventure, we headed to Kep to chill out at the beach for a couple of days or so we thought. The place we were staying was nice enough, it was traditional style accommodation in wooden buildings raised off the floor, and much cleaner and well kept than High Tide had been. … Continue reading Beach Days

Rocks and Pepper In Kampot

I promised in a previous blog to tell you about our climbing experience in Cambodia so here it is. One of the ways I used to get my husband more excited about our trip before we set off was to tell him about all the places which were called climbing "meccas" in the guide books. … Continue reading Rocks and Pepper In Kampot

There And Back Again, A Crane’s Tale

Of all the places we went to on our travels, the crane nature park was the most out of the way and the most faff to get to. But it was worth it. We started our journey the day before from Sapporo, we got the train to Kushiro which in of itself was not a … Continue reading There And Back Again, A Crane’s Tale

River Kayaking To A Temple

When we eventually made our way on from Siem Reap, we decided our next destination would be the coast of Cambodia. For us that meant getting our first ever overnight bus to Phnom Penh and then onward to our first stop at Kampot. The overnight journey was interesting. Instead of chairs it was all slightly … Continue reading River Kayaking To A Temple

Beer, Christmas Markets And Snow… In Japan

We had been to Hokkaido, the north island of Japan before. We went snowboarding in Niseko in 2013 and we had even flown to the capital of the province Sapporo at that time, but we didn't actually spend any time in Sapporo. Clearly as we had been snowboarding we knew there was a lot of … Continue reading Beer, Christmas Markets And Snow… In Japan
