2020: The Highs & Lows of a Nomadic Travel Blogger.

2020: The Highs & Lows of a Nomadic Travel Blogger. I’ve never done a post like this before, so you’ll have to bear with me. Truly, I hardly know where to start. Except to say, and forgive my language… What a f****ing crazy year! It blows my mind to think that a year ago today, […]

Travel Report: Torremolinos, The Costa del Sol.

Torremolinos, The Costa del Sol. July 2016. It would be an understatement to say that Torremolinos doesn’t have a great reputation. Disparaged by many as the grottiest of The Costa del Sol towns, in Britain it has the unfortunate nickname Torrid-molinos. Nevertheless, I had already resolved to give these unloved coastal towns a try. Mainly […]

Travel Report: Frigiliana, Spain.

Frigiliana, Spain. October 2016. A potential visit to the south of Spain conjures up daydreams of blue skies, golden sands and mouth-watering bowls of tapas. More often than not accompanied by a glass of blood-red tinto (wine). Or in my case a cheeky caña (little beer). You might also think of pristine, whitewashed villages and towns […]

Travel Report: The Grand Union Canal, Berkhamstead.

The Grand Union Canal, Berkhamstead. September 2019. I’d had an excellent couple of days retracing the steps of my youth around the Buckinghamshire towns of Chesham and Amersham. But now, on this pleasingly sunny autumnal morning, it was time to head back to London. I’d spent the night at my old friend Steppers’ place in Chesham. The […]

Tapsa Temple, South Korea. Want to get the full picture? Before reading, why not start with my article on Maisan Mountain. April 2019. I thought I’d seen it all when it came to temples. But deep in the heart of southwestern Korea sits a frankly staggering temple unlike any other. It’s called Tapsa Temple and […]

Travel Report: Maisan Mountain, South Korea.

April 2019. Wherever you’re travelling from, getting to South Korea’s Maisan Mountain is not a straightforward affair. Especially if you’re trying to do it as a day trip. I set off from the city of Jeonju with my brother Cory and his fiancée Kaley one sunny April afternoon. The first leg of our adventure involved a […]

Travel Report: Yongmunsa Temple, South Korea.

Yongmunsa Temple. February 2015. I got so lucky with my trip to Seoul. Firstly, I had a room for free, courtesy of Irish Andy, a friend of a friend. Then, one afternoon, a bunch of Andy’s buddies took me hiking up Ingwansan Mountain. A larger group of expats also invited me out to some city […]

Travel Report: Suseong Lake, Daegu.

Suseong Lake, Daegu. April 2019. It was a brilliantly sunny afternoon in Daegu and we’d just finished an enlightening morning learning about one of South Korea’s most beloved singers at Kim Kwang-seok Memorial Street. Now, with hopes of discovering a perfect dinner spot, we’d arrived at Suseong Lake. This is undoubtedly central Daegu’s most picturesque […]

Travel Report: Seomun Night Market, Daegu.

April 2019. “Mate, I’ve got to take you to Seomun Night Market” hummed Wonderboy one morning, rubbing his hands together. “The food is just….”. I can’t remember exactly what adjective he used. But it didn’t matter, I was already sold on the words food and market. After all, this was South Korea, where the promise of a fine […]
