Koh Tao

Thailand is a travelers dream. It is without a doubt the most exciting place I have ever experienced … it’s also the most international. All languages and nationalities are present; the Aussies and Kiwis are here, French, German and Dutch folks are a common sight; you will hear Arabic and Farsi mixed in with Russian and Mandarin. It’s exciting and its real and I love it! Continue reading “Koh Tao”

Searching for paradise in Phuket and Krabi

Hoards of international people, schools of tropical fish, turquoise water, explosive fire hazards, wild monkeys, and dodgy boat rides – it’s a crazy ride in search of paradise on the islands of Thailand. Continue reading “Searching for paradise in Phuket and Krabi”

Jimjilbangs, bibimbop and Hanok tea rooms in Seoul

One of the main reasons I was looking forward to visiting Seoul was to eat some bibimbop and get a Korean scrub down in a jimjilbang. But visiting a Hanok house and experiencing historic tea houses was a very romantic cultural surprise hidden amongst the skyscrapers and urban hustle in the sprawling city of Seoul.

Fukuoka and Karatsu

Everything they say about Fukuoka is true. The people are laid back, it’s not as crowded. No one seems in as much of a hurry or as stressed out as they are in Tokyo and other cities. It could be because it’s a city that’s by the ocean and filled with canals that gives it an airy quality. Let’s not forget the amazing food and you have the best of both worlds.
