Keep Calm And Angkor On

Although I have already written about my experience at Angkor Wat; there is a lot more to the Angkor Temple Complex than that. We visited so many temples while we were in Siem Reap we almost got templed out. Before I go into more detail about the Keep Calm part of my title, with the exception … Continue reading  Keep Calm And Angkor On

Oh Deer

One of the things we wanted to do while we were in Japan was see the villages and islands that are full of one particular animal that you hear about but aren't sure you can quite believe they exist. The first on our list was Nara, a village known for its friendly deer population. From … Continue reading Oh Deer

How They Grow Trees In Singapore

Our visit to Singapore was fairly short, on our last day after indulging my husband with some climbing and having a catch up over a drink and some prata with a friend who was working out there at the time we met again with our host.

Beauty Arround Every Corner

When we first got to Hiroshima I knew I wanted to visit the torii gate in the sea, I didn't know much about it but it is one of those iconic pictures of Japan that you always see. For a start I thought it was actually in Hiroshima and I thought that it being in … Continue reading Beauty Arround Every Corner

We have been to Tokyo before and at that point we did most of the touristy things, including seeing Asimo, so this … Continue reading Robots

Singapore had not initially been on our itinerary, however with such an offer how could we turn it down, after all one of the reasons it was not on … Continue reading Visiting A Man-Made Island

Short But Sweet

After our interesting week with Fuze Ecoteer we needed some time to relax. We had decided to head to George Town in Penang, which I am very sad to hear has recently had some flash flooding. Our initial intention was to use George Town as a stop-gap on the way to Thailand by bus, but it … Continue reading Short But Sweet

The Bad And The Ugly

Two warnings to start out on this blog, the first is that this blog will basically be a long rant about our time at the Fuze Ecoteer Rain forest conservation project. It will be very negative, so if you are not interested in the details, just take from this blog that I would not recommend … Continue reading The Bad And The Ugly

The Good

I don't think you need to be a western fan to guess that this blog has two more parts, however I will be grouping together The Bad and The Ugly as I don't want to focus any more on the negatives than I feel I have to. This two-part series will cover the main part … Continue reading The Good
