Sri Lankan Capital Colombo - Galle Face Hotel 0

Exploring Sri Lanka’s Colonial Capital, Colombo

As the plane descends into Negombo, the location of the international airport servicing the country, 35kms north of Colombo, you get an excellent view of Sri Lanka’s green, carpeted hill country. Our transition to arrivals was swift as there weren’t a lot of planes at the time. We bought a sim card for $10 US dollars and got the change from...

Time to Move On … Zagreb-Belgrade-Budapest

We enjoyed our time in Split with its bustling street life, tiny lanes full of all kinds of shops and cafes and a well-preserved Roman palace and fortress. It’s a lot more laid back than Dubrovnik and prices were far more reasonable. Once again our Airbnb abode was excellent. Central to the main area, stylishly appointed, and with all the...

Memorable Montenegro – Incredible Cycling & Views

The 12hr train journey from Belgrade to Bar, in Montenegro, averages 10 tunnels an hour. Needless to say, it was quite spectacular (when we had the sky over our heads!). It was also a little nerve-wracking when the “Old Clunker” crossed the seemingly endless, deep valleys over ridiculously high, narrow and spindly rail bridges that always seemed to dip away...

Smoky Bars in Balmy Belgrade

The overnight train from Sofia to Serbia’s capital Belgrade was old, crappy and smelly. No one seemed to have consulted the EU on this one! A Chinese guy approached us on the dimly lit platform with a worried look on his face. He couldn’t believe this graffiti-covered Soviet relic was really our train. He took one look at his cabin...

A head for heights – Ziplining @ Angkor Cambodia

For a girl that doesn’t like heights, I have to say I’m pretty damn chuffed with myself. Anyone that shakes at the knees and feels faint looking out a 10-storey window will understand. If you’d told me I could fly through the jungle, 50 metres above the ground, suspended only by a cable, attached to a couple of trees, I...

Craft Beer and Fab Food at the Siem Reap Brewpub

Anyone who follows us on this blog or my Ho Chi Minh City site knows that both Tim and I love a good beer and it doesn’t even need to be on a hot day. Our excitement at the emergence of craft beer in our favourite part of the world, South East Asia, is all too obvious on our Instagram...

Serenity in Siem Reap, Cambodia – Tresor D’Angkor Suite

Spacious, stylish and comfortable, Tresor D’Angkor Suite in Siem Reap, Cambodia was the perfect antidote to what had been a hectic few months. Between weddings in Australia, hubby needing to go back ten weeks early because of a family illness, and a frantic month in Thailand, trying to finish up all my projects before the next big adventure, I was...

Transferwise Borderless – Saving Us Some Serious Cash

A Paypal alternative saving us thousands. Up front, I hate bank fees and gouging by financial institutions. More specifically, I hate paying more than I should for a substandard service. Freelancers,  bloggers, and Digital Nomads (like us) have the luxury of being able to work from anywhere in the world, for clients across the globe. As long as we coordinate and...
