Two Days in Kuala Lumpur

What can you say about Kuala Lumpur? It’s not quite a holiday destination, more of a passing through hub, but you can catch the best of it in two days. It’s hot, humid, full of colonial buildings and mind-bogglingly tall skyscrapers and home to the famous Petronas Towers which are the tallest twin skyscrapers in…

Perfect Perhentian Islands, Malaysia

Life is pretty basic and if you don’t mind ceiling fans, sharing with gordon the gecko and his kids, and living with just the one tank of cold water for your showers every day, then you will find yourself in a slice of heaven.

Gone Surfing in Portugal

You may guess by now that I have zero self restraint when there are cheap flights in front of me, even less control over how fast I book a ticket when a friend says ‘Come visit me!’ as she lazes by the pool of a surf house in Portugal in the Winter, where she’s working…

Divine Dubrovnik

I fell in love…with Croatia. Sssssh, don’t tell my beautiful Italy that another country stole my heart. From land to sea, to islands glistening like white washed gems in the sparkling Adriatic sea, this is one beautiful country….even if Game of Thrones fans do arrive in mind boggling numbers to walk in the footsteps of the stars…

The Italian Affair – Cinque Terre

One afternoon at work I walked past a colleagues screen and stopped, they were lost in Google images of the most postcard pretty pictures of little pastel villages backing onto lush hills, scooping above turquoise bays. If I was in a Disney cartoon, my eyes would have turned into hearts, I just had to ask where this…
