Our Bear Care Tour at the Free the Bears Sanctuary, Phnom Penh

After finding out about the Free the Bears Sanctuary a few years ago, I knew I wanted to see the sanctuary when we eventually visited Cambodia. While in Luang Prabang in Laos, we enjoyed visiting their smaller sanctuary there, at the foot of the Kuang Si Falls. When I checked their website, I discovered the […]

There’s no shortage of hotels in Siem Reap, Cambodia, thanks to the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat. Just a short drive outside of town, this archaeological site attracts millions of visitors from all over the world every year. With so many hotels in Siem Reap, it can be hard to decide where to […]

Monthly Update – December 2018

Happy New Year! We’ve just clocked over into 2019 and we’re still going strong. Since we started travelling full time in the middle of October last year, we’ve visited four countries in total. In December we ticked off another two countries, Laos and Cambodia. Both of these countries are quite poor but are developing rapidly, […]

Vang Vieng, to Love or to Hate?

I have to admit that after visiting Thailand, we had grown accustomed to the friendliness of the locals. On the other hand, in Laos, it was a totally different story. Smiling locals were actually hard to find. It’s not that they were deliberately rude, they just weren’t particularly friendly like the Thais. But this really […]

Is Luang Prabang Still Worth a Visit?

The small town of Luang Prabang is located in northern Laos and has one of the most beautiful settings in south-east Asia. Sandwiched between the Mekong and the Nam Khan River, Luang Prabang is oh so pretty and ever so romantic! This old French colonial town became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 and […]

Tesalate Beach Towel Review: Don’t Bring the Beach Home

As you may know, we love the beach and when you love the beach you need a good beach towel. As full-time travellers, we also need a towel that is compact and easy to lug around. Unfortunately, until now we didn’t really own one. The beach towels we had were light for sure but they […]

Checking in: Our review of Sara Resort, Koh Rong Sanloem

I’m not going to lie, we love tropical islands. The clear blue sea, white sand, palm trees, what’s not to love? During our trip to Cambodia, we made sure we visited Koh Rong Sanloem, an island just off the coast of Sihanoukville. We stayed four nights on this paradise island and quite frankly we wish […]

Taking the Slow Boat in Laos to Luang Prabang

A slow boat cruise down the mighty Mekong river was high on our list of things to do in Laos. In fact it was one of the most exciting experiences we had planned for the Southeast Asia leg of our trip. As we cruised slowly down the Mekong over two days before reaching Luang Prabang, […]

10 Things to Do in Chiang Rai, Thailand

Chiang Rai has the reputation for being rather boring and because of that many visitors to Northern Thailand give it a miss. Although it’s certainly not as exciting as its big sister Chiang Mai, we think that Chiang Rai is absolutely worth the detour. It has some very interesting temples and is surrounded by some […]

A Quick City Guide to Chiang Mai, Thailand

Southern Thailand draws visitors from all over the world and it’s no surprise why. Its stunning islands and world-class beaches are so amazing that you couldn’t visit Thailand and not spend some time there. But when you’re done with sunning yourself on Thailand’s white sandy beaches and partying the night away at its beach bars, […]
