Is Premium Economy really worth it? Here’s the truth

It’s safe to say Matt and I have caught our fair share of flights. On work trips, we find ourselves catching crazy numbers of flights, like 11 flights in 10 days, for example! Yep, we spend a lot of time on planes and have started to get a really good feel for what works and what doesn’t, […]

Things to do in Chiang Mai: Jungle Trekking

Let me be clear from the outset: I don’t like hiking. I’m not the person planning their holidays around great hiking trails, strapping on their boots for a quick 12km hike on a Saturday or staking out my local adventure store for an epic sale on hiking boots. That ain’t me. I’m usually at home, […]

Where to stay in Halong Bay: Paradise Cruise

There’s something magical about Halong Bay. Floating gently past limestone cliffs covered in trees, the bright emerald water glistening under the sunshine. Spending days exploring hidden pockets, kayaking through caves, swimming and visiting floating villages. Watching the bright orange sunset while sipping on a cocktail, dancing the night away then slipping back to your room […]

Where to stay in Central Vietnam: Banyan Tree Lang Co

I‘ve visited Vietnam a few times but had never heard of Lang Co until our most recent trip. I love Vietnam and have been so keen to visit places away from the cities and favourite tourist destinations.  I imagined I’d need to journey into remote areas to find these quiet destinations and that a little […]

Where to stay in Wanaka: The Moorings Motel

I‘ve said it once, I’ll say it again – Wanaka is my favourite place in New Zealand. More than just the jaw-droppingly beautiful scenery, the snow-capped mountains and picture-perfect lake, Wanaka has a unique and welcoming vibe that always melts away my worries.

Where stay in Lake Tekapo: Peppers Bluewater Resort

Without a doubt, Lake Tekapo is one of those unique places that just kind of takes your breath away. The jagged edges of the mountains, snowcapped, jutting from the earth.

Where to stay in Kuala Lumpur: Oasia Suites

The air is muggy and humid, my hair is contorted into the shape of a bird’s nest and I’m starting to feel the jet lag kick in. I step out of the Uber, throwing a real casual, “Terima Kasih,” at the driver and receive a warm smile right back. The security guard opens the glass […]

Where to stay in Ubud: Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa

I‘ve visited Ubud a few times and can safely say I’ve walked past Plataran Ubud each damn time, totally oblivious to the hidden world behind its welcoming, understated facade. Mind you, I was distracted each time as I was on my way to get a burrito so, you can’t really blame me. When we pulled […]
