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


Not Always As They Appear

I am sure you have probably seen fox village on the internet, we had too which is why it was one of the animal places we wanted to visit while in Japan. Having visited Nara, also known as deer village and if you have read my blogs about Cat Island and The Crane Nature Park, … Continue reading Not Always As They Appear

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

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

Our Last Day Traveling

So I think I have mentioned before how far behind I am with my blogs. We actually got home before Christmas, but I plan to fill in the gaps. I actually plan to do blogs on either end of the gap until it is filled in. So here is what we spent our last day … Continue reading Our Last Day Traveling

Secret Genocide

This is not going to be a pleasant blog to write or for you to read, however it is an important one. It has been brought to my attention that I could be using genocide in the wrong context here, however as one of the places covered in this blog is called the Genocide Museum … Continue reading Secret Genocide

Cat Island Near Manga Town

We have been to a few different animal places in Japan now, but the most recent and probably the one I was looking forward to the most was Cat Island. We have two adorable cats at home, who we miss very much and my in-laws are very kindly looking after for us while we are … Continue reading Cat Island Near Manga Town

 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
