Travel Report: Zaragoza, Spain.

Zaragoza, Spain. Cover photo courtesy of Gregorio Puga Bailón. September 2015. I remember waking up in my Zaragoza guesthouse feeling absolutely knackered.

Travel Report: Pamplona, Spain.

Pamplona, Spain. Cover photo courtesy of Eaeaea. August 2015. Back in my early to mid twenties, in the days before I became an addicted blogger, I used to read a lot.

San Sebastian, Spain. August 2015. Everybody and their dogs had told me how I’d be mad to leave San Sebastian out of my trip across Northern Spain.

Travel Report: Phnom Chhngok Cave Temple, Kampot.

Phnom Chhngok Cave Temple, Kampot. September 2020. Sladja and I had been holed up in our guesthouse room for the better part of a week when we started to become agitated. We needed to get out, stretch our legs and cross another sight off our Kampot to-do list. Scanning our notes, I found my eyes […]

Travel Report: The Praek Tuek Chhu River, Kampot.

The Praek Tuek Chhu River, Kampot. August 2020. There’s a charming languor to the Cambodian city of Kampot. On my first visit here with Wonderboy in 2015, we both remarked on how it felt more like a small town than a city. The kind of place where you can (and we did) while away an […]
