Travel Report: Sihanoukville, Cambodia.

Sihanoukville, Cambodia. December 2015. It was a typically hot and humid Cambodian afternoon when Wonderboy and I arrived in the city of Sihanoukville. The plan was simple, all we wanted was a few days of beach lazing and overeating before our boat out to the nearby island of Koh Rong. Where, funnily enough, exactly the […]

Travel Report: Battambang Bamboo Train, Cambodia.

The Battambang Bamboo Train December 2015. I’m so glad I set aside a couple of days for Battambang during my first cross-country adventure in Cambodia. Having thoroughly enjoyed the mind blowing parade of bats at Phnom Sampeau Mountain, it was now time for one of the world’s most unique rail journeys!

Travel Report: Plaza de Espana, Seville.

Plaza de Espana, Seville. April 2017. I’ve seen some truly impressive city squares during my years of global travel. However, I can categorically state that none of them felt quite as dramatic as Plaza de España in the Spanish city of Seville. Wonderboy and I had been enjoying a leisurely stroll around María Luisa Park when, quite […]
