The falls are about 45 minutes outside of LP (by tuk-tuk, other modes of transportation are available!) and are definitely worth the trip! We were told to get there early to avoid the crowds, but that didn’t actually happen, despite our best intentions. So, with our plans foiled on that front (see post Delicate Negotiations… Continue reading Cooling Off at Kuang Si Falls, Laos
My blog is one year old today, I can't believe it! How time flies when you are having fun! I started this blog rather tentatively (understatement!) last year as an attempt to bring some creativity into my life and to have a place where I can indulge my love of travel - particularly whilst I… Continue reading 1 Year Blogiversary!
Wells is a city in the county of Somerset in England. It has the honour of being the smallest city in England, thanks to the magnificent Wells Cathedral which is situated there.

But time was tight and no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t make the itinerary work for us. The… Continue reading To Visit Laos in March? The Burning Question!
Swansea is situated just south of Newcastle, at the mouth of Lake Macquarie….which is a bloody big lake! We have stayed in Swansea numerous times now and whilst it’s fair to say that it is quite quiet, I’ve always enjoyed our time there. We rent a little cottage which has a lovely garden which… Continue reading Swansea…Australia, that is!

... A VIEW!!! I don't really love planes though, however, the views on the flight home from my latest travels were just too amazing to miss.
