The Top Cities I’ve Visited On My Travels So Far!

The Top Cities I’ve Visited On My Travels So Far!

I’ve visited quite a few cities around the world and in this article, I’ve narrowed my list of cities down to three incredible cities…(It was difficult). So usually you’re either a city lover or a country bumpkin right? Personally, I’m a wildlife and nature lover. I prefer nothing better than exploring mountains, national parks and all the natural sights a country can offer. However, there’s no denying that there are a few cities around the world that deserve to be on everyone’s…

Pangandaran – For nature lovers and adventurers! 

Pangandaran – For nature lovers and adventurers! 

I’ve recently moved on from Pangandaran to Yogyakarta, and originally Pangandaran wasn’t on my list of places to visit in Indonesia but I cannot explain to you much the visit was totally worth it!  We arranged to stay in accommodation in Pangandaran at the Panorama A La Plage Guest House, an absolutely brilliant guesthouse, with lovely owners, cheap prices and a good breakfast in the morning. I would definitely recommend it to anybody staying in Pangandaran. However, when we first arrived…

Tangkuban Perahu – Bandungs local Volcano 

Tangkuban Perahu is Bandungs local volcano, and it’s definitely worth visiting whilst you’re in or around Bandung.

If you’re going from…

It’s the biggest island in Indonesia, and like the rest of Indonesia it’s full of amazing things to see and do! However, that’s not the best part, it’s nowhere near as heavily travelled as most other…

The perfect day in Singapore…

The perfect day in Singapore…

So I’ve recently moved on from my second visit to Singapore, and honestly the city just gets better and better each time I visit. When I first arrived in Singapore a couple of years ago I was blown away by the sheer amount of things going on around Marina Bay. I eventually discovered, after being completely oblivious, that the country was practicing for its 50th National Day. Luckily enough for me I got to experience firework displays, cannon shows, displays…

How budgeting can make your backpacking trip a lot more exciting! 

 When you think of a backpacker it’s not very often you think of their lifestyle as glamourous or high-end, but in reality it’s becoming more common to see backpackers opting for luxury over cost. Obviously this is fine if that’s the style of trip you enjoy, however if you’re like me and you prefer to save money whilst travelling by picking low cost over luxury, then it’s likely that you’ve been exposed to the hidden benefits of getting down…
