Difficult to describe just how much fun learning to scuba dive was, but I think this video paints a good picture. Dive number 4, PADI Open Water in Koh Tao with Bans Diving.
I’ve had a glimpse of what life’s like in the South China Sea and I want to make it a semi-permanant thing. Is becoming a mermaid an option? I don’t even know where to begin with describing how mind blowing it is to come face-to-face with creatures of the sea, look into their eyes, Read More
So, I found myself on Koh Phangan awaiting the Full moon Party. We rocked up to the island (which is very pretty by the way) 4 days early and surveyed Haadrin beach from our bungalows. I guess I’m not that old but I did find myself questioning whether my days of all night parties,, Read More

Tibet’s always been one of those places I’ve wanted to experience and I guess that’s partly because It’s so tricky to get in. Shrouded in mystery, censorship and such a powerful heritage with a huge healthy dose of Buddhism, it was high on my hit list.
Completely ignorant about Nepal I landed in Kathmandu airport and instantly got a good feeling. Standing at the top of the steps to get off the plane, the wave of heat swept over me and the Himalayas provided the stunning backdrop.
