With bases in New York, Amsterdam and London, Yotel has become synonymous with airports terminals where it can give customers the convenient experience of being minutes from departures and arrival gates. Proving popular, their rooms or ‘cabins’ as they call...

Backpacking down in Mexico

While I am in the throes of planning my travels in 2015 (watch this space), I wonder about where I could go in the Americas. I’ve already been to South America and saw Los Angeles from the airport entrance in the North. But what about backpacking down in Mexico? After all, I do have the Mexican mustache already. So I asked my friends at Thomson Holidays to inspire me with a tale of Mexico… While South East Asia might enjoy...

Disconnected From The World In Laos

Have you ever been in a position where you’ve been disconnected? Isolated in the middle of nowhere? No chance of gaining contact with the outside world? It’s a question Talisker Storm, Malt Whiskey producers, asked me after they recently took a team of three ordinary people on an extraordinary expedition, to navigate their way round the natural wonder that is the Isle of Skye in just five days. Led by National Geographic...

Zadar Nightlife: An Evening to Remember

‘Let’s go out tonight to sample the Zadar nightlife and bring Jenny and the boys with us!’ Mark excitedly exclaimed as he shook my shoulder on the bus back from Plitvice Lakes earlier on today. Glancing up from the inner workings of my iPhone, which has STILL yet to be fixed, I could see his face was brightened up, actually cracking a smile. Perhaps I shouldn’t say no, perhaps the Zadar nightlife would be an...

Plitvice Lakes

I was pretty excited to be going to Plitvice Lakes. Bouncing along on the road on the bus going north-east from Zadar at the accepted morning time of 8.30am, the two-hour journey would go by in a blur. It certainly did for me as I was too busy still trying to fix my iPhone that suddenly stopped charging. Could it be that there’s too much debris in the battery port, who knows. I was obsessed and kept a running commentary much to...

Backpacking Croatia: Day 5 Part 2: A Monster Lurks in Zadar

‘Are you sure it’s okay to climb in the water?’ Mark worryingly called out from the bank in Zadar. It was an end of a long hot day and I simply wanted to cool down in the sparkling blue waters of the Adriatic Sea. We had gone to a well-known spot just south of the city where all the locals go after work to sunbathe and relax. However, I couldn’t fathom what laid on the sea bed. You just couldn’t tell....

28 Items This Backpacker Can’t Live Without

Before a backpacking trip, it can be pretty hard to figure out what you need in your backpack. The packing list grows and grows and there’s only one simple backpack that you can fit it all in to contain all the items you think a backpacker can’t live without.

Who’s THAT Travel Blogger? – Jason of Hiatus4Life

Before I went on my RTW travels, I could be often found stalking other travel blogs but what really interested me was the travel blogger behind the witticisms of their writing. Who are they? Are they real? Are they fit? So hence, for a long time coming, I wanted to do some travel blogging interviews and crack them open for their rawness inspiration of travel inside. Think Michael Parkinson.   I’m pretty much excited to be...
