A list of all the particular destinations I hope to visit

Shanghai

Two years ago I was faced with a decision; where would I like to live? Beijing or Shanghai. Quite the decision to make, particularly when you’re on the other side of the world and with no real knowledge of either of them. Throughout that time I’ve always wondered if I made the right decision, whether…

Zhangjiajie

This must be the most world recognized natural phenomenon China has to offer, a true natural wonder of the world. An image of another primeval world, a time of long forgotten mystery. A location which has been forever immortalized in the blockbuster movie Avatar. Somewhere which humbles anyone lucky enough to roam amongst its sandstone…

Prague (In One Day)

For travellers on a time-limit, Prague is the perfect city. Fortunately all the highlights line-up along an almost perfectly straight line through the city, all within a comfortable 3 mile or so wander along a gorgeous route. A city with a fantastic public transport system as well as a fantastic sense of tourism, it’s everything…

Mongolia – Part 1

I’ve racked up a fair number of countries on the list, most of which were along the tried and tested beaten tracks of endlessly reliable streams of tourists. Not often have I stepped too far off the trail, or travelled to a country which produces a quizzical look from people. With my time in Beijing…

Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia’s capital city comes with a bit of personal history for me. A few years ago, the conclusion of my first ever backpacking adventure would bring me to Kuala Lumpur after a rapid 3 months. An incredibly bitter-sweet end to my milestone journey. I arrived by bus from Singapore thinking I had a day in…

Guide To: Chinese Trains

The train has been a consistently reliable form of travel both within and between many nations for centuries, and one that’s still actively used by travellers today. China is one of those nation that thinks so too, which a considerable rail system which is spread over the vast expanses of the country. If you were…

As well as being the former imperial capital for successions of emperors and dynasty’s, the city became the terminal end of the Silk Road, bringing with it influence from the Middle East. The city is also home to one…

Chiang Mai – Part 2

We pick up our story from a 2 days of tattoo’s, bar girls, temples and tourist scams in the paradise which is Chiang Mai.   Day 3 I had nothing planned for this day, therefore the perfect opportunity to tick-off other highlights worth seeing. I found one enormous bucket list opportunity, reminded every time I…
