Notes on Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires

I love wandering around big cities and one city I’ve always wanted to visit for urban exploration was Buenos Aires. I ended up spending 11 days in BA, and I could have easily spent more time given the chance. I can see how many travellers I’ve met have ended up staying for way longer than […]

Notes on Taipei

Taipei - Taiwan

My visit to Taipei was also my first time in Taiwan. Rather than rush around and try and visit the whole island I dedicated two weeks to exploring Taipei and decided to visit the rest of the island another time. Two weeks turned out to be a good amount of time to linger and explore […]

New Country Day: Uruguay

Uruguay Flag

Country: Uruguay Date: 22 October 2014 I’ve gotten better at resisting borders that are close by, but in the case of visiting Uruguay it made sense to visit while I was in Buenos Aires in Argentina. The two countries are separated by the Uruguay river and the Rio de la Plate. Even if you are […]

Lounge Review: KLM Crown Lounge – Amsterdam Schiphol

KLM Crown Lounge

As part of my trip to South America in partnership with Air France/KLM, I had a stopover in Amsterdam for a few days. I was flying economy to Buenos Aires but I was given a lounge pass by KLM to use for the day. As my flight was at 9pm and I had a midday […]

Cafes to work from in Taipei

Taipei Cafes

If you are looking for a city in Asia to base yourself as a writer or digital nomad then add Taipei to your consideration list. With 90 day visa on arrival for most western countries and unadulterated internet, Taipei is a good base for location independent types. Taipei is well known for its food scene […]

I’m going to South America!

Air France-KLM South America

South America has been a glaring omission in my travels so I’m happy to announce I will be making a trip to Argentina and Uruguay this month. For this trip I am partnering with Air France/KLM who are providing my flights from London to Buenos Aires and Montevideo back to London, via their respective hubs […]

In Pictures: Occupy Hong Kong Protests (29 September, 2014)

Occupy Hong Kong

I landed in Hong Kong and arrived in the middle of the biggest protests Hong Kong has seen since being handed back to China in 1997. The protests are over Beijing’s decision to screen candidates for elections. These photos were from the protest around the Central/Admiralty area of Hong Kong, on Hong Kong Island (#OccupyCentral […]

New Country Day: Taiwan

Welcome To Taiwan

Country: Taiwan Date: 14 September 2014 I’ve been wanting to visit Taiwan for the last two years so after some wrangling of frequent flyer points I have managed a visit before going to Europe. This is my first time here so today is New Country Day which is always a travel day I love. I […]

Airport Review: klia2 – the budget terminal of KUL Airport

klia2

klia2 is the new budget airline terminal of Kuala Lumpur International Airport. It opened for passengers on 9 May 2014, replacing the former budget terminal LCCT. The old Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) at KUL resembled a tin shed and it wasn’t long before AirAsia grew beyond the intended capacity. While it was ok to […]

Notes on Dili, East Timor

East Timor Government Building

A little big city Dili is the smallest capital city in Southeast Asia, and also the newest, having gained independence from Indonesia in 2002. While Dili is going to feel sedate after being in the other capital cities of the region, travel is a relative experience so your impression will depend on where you’re arriving […]
