2021: A Travel Blogger’s Balkan Odyssey.

2021: A Travel Blogger’s Balkan Odyssey. So that was 2021? I don’t know about you, but for us it went by in a flash. Indeed it seems like only yesterday I wrote my first ever end of year review, 2020: The Highs and Lows of a Nomadic Travel Blogger. I really enjoyed writing that piece. […]

Fitzneal Street, London. July, 2019. With thanks to my dad and Uncle Doug for their help in making this article possible.  —— I had butterflies in my stomach as I turned off Old Oak Common Lane into Fitzneal Street.

Queens Park Rangers F.C.

Queens Park Rangers F.C. Today, dear readers, I want to take you to a place that might just be my favourite spot in London. A corner of the English capital that’s in my blood… my heart… and soul.

Travel Report: Monkey Mountain, Danang.

Monkey Mountain, Danang, Vietnam. May 2018. It was a beautifully sunny afternoon in Danang as I left the hostel in pursuit of another mountain adventure.

Travel Report: The Danang Coastline, Vietnam. 

The Danang Coastline, Vietnam. April 2018. When I look back on my Danang adventures, I naturally recall all the amazing sights I managed to tick off during my five night stay. However, every bit as memorable is the day I took a well-earned rest and didn’t wake up until midday. The day when, having had […]

Travel Report: Dragon Bridge, Danang.

Dragon Bridge, Danang, Vietnam. April 2018. It was my first day in the Vietnamese city of Danang. Having checked into my digs, a Japanese style hostel called Tomodachi House, I wasted no time in heading out into the city. After the sedate charms of Dong Hoi and the imperial delights of Hue, I was definitely […]
