How To Spent a Weekend in Berlin: The Sites

How To Spent a Weekend in Berlin: The Sites

The fact this post is live means I’ve been to Berlin, explored the city and now I’m home. Sad times! Last week I travelled to Berlin with two of my closest friends to explore what Germany had to offer. Part of the reason we chose Berlin […]

An Afternoon Down in the Cu Chi Tunnels, Vietnam

An Afternoon Down in the Cu Chi Tunnels, Vietnam

Our trip to Vietnam was actually shorter than I had hoped, but fortunately I got to fulfill one of the craziest experiences of my life so far: I went down into the Cu Chi tunnels deep inside the Vietnamese jungle.

Silence in the Killing Fields, Cambodia

Silence in the Killing Fields, Cambodia

I contemplated not writing this post. Then I thought about why the The Killing Fields is actually open to the public, yes maybe it brings in tourists and generates revenue for the country, but it also keeps the memories alive of those affected my the Khmer Rouge, and to remind the world the effect such a group had on society in the 1970’s.

I’ve made a few fair mistakes in my travels (here), but this one takes the biscuit.

With a strong interest in travel, it’s no surprise I see a lot of Instagram accounts showcasing idyllic, picture-perfect locations that are cropped, filtered and optimised to evoke the viewers jealousy; but that’s not what travel is about.
