Hong Kong: Love/Hate

Hong Kong: Love/Hate

Despite my very short time spent in Hong Kong, quickly it became apparent that travellers have very mixed emotions to the country. Some will sing the praises of the mystical land which which is world known, where others despise everything that it has become. People’s opinions vary quite considerably, and I can see why.  …

Hong Kong

Hong Kong

Hong Kong; it’s the city that casts up images of antique wooden junks barging their way through the hordes of other equally ancient boats along the dividing oceans that separate the chaotic madness amongst the narrow streets of enthusiastic business. The mysterious land that has provided so much in the form of pop culture from…

Beijing: Transport

Beijing: Transport

One of the biggest downfalls of backpacking cities is the sheer size and distance needed to travel from A to B.

Travel Guide: Beijing

Travel Guide: Beijing

China stand proudly as one of the world’s biggest superpowers, so its only appropriate that their capital should boast the development, history and culture that has made this nation great.

The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), Korea

The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), Korea

Backpacking follows a predictable set of events; first follow the well-beaten tracks, before seeking a unique adventure not many get to see. The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) marks the fragile divide between the borders of both Korean countries. The heavily guarded separation between the two keeps the fragile illusion of peace while on the edge of…

Seoul

Seoul

Seoul; the capital of South Korea, kimchee and K-pop. This city has lived up to its big name as a booming 24-7 city nestled beside the madness of its eccentric neighbour. Vibes of historical Chinese influence with waves of modern Japanese technology, this city stands out as a major Asian capital.   The city is…

Becoming an English Teacher

Becoming an English Teacher

  Planning too far into the future appears to be pointless. Considering that over a 2 years period my life-ambition changed from becoming a doctor to becoming a backpacker. This transition was a great success, before becoming broke after 3 short months. The curious thought of becoming a teacher did cross my mind at some…
