Travel Report: Prague, The Czech Republic.

Prague, Czech Republic. In late 2002 I was living in Bratislava where I worked as an English teacher.

Travel Report: APOPO Humanitarian Demining, Siem Reap.

APOPO Humanitarian Demining. February 2020. I’ve always tried to seek out unique and quirky travel projects. It would be boring if I was always posting about temples, churches, beaches and museums. Moreover, these more unusual experiences are invariably the most fun to write about.

Travel Report: Bon Om Touk Water Festival, Cambodia.

November 2015. I’ve always enjoyed Siem Reap’s predominantly sleepy vibe. Back during my first spell here I quickly learned to stay away from the frenetic Old Market and irksome Pub Street. Despite being the gateway to the world famous Angkor Temples, I never had trouble finding a sleepy cafe to write in or a largely […]
