Review Like A Specialist – Sri Lankan Airlines.

On my recent trip to Sri Lanka and the Maldives with Perowne International, I was lucky enough to fly with an airline I’ve never used before. Sri Lankan Airlines is the nation’s own carrier, launched in 1979 and now part of the One World alliance. For me, it’s a great choice for clients looking to […]

Retracing History in Sri Lanka – A trip with Perowne International.

Sri Lanka is a country that I have always longed to visit; its stunning landscapes, rich history and multiculturalism make it a unique island country, and, for a small nation, there is so much to see and experience. This pull for me, has become even stronger since the terrible events of Easter 2019, which has […]

Our Visit to Koh Nang Yuan – Tainted Paradise.

Our last couple of days on Koh Tao were spent travelling to various snorkelling spots. One of these was the neighbouring island of Koh Nang Yuan, just a 15 minute taxi boat ride from the main pier. Claimed by many to be the most beautiful of the Thai islands, Koh Nang Yuan is made up […]

My Epic Scubadive Fail. 

Ever since we started this trip, Matt has wanted to get his PADI certificate for scubadiving and seeing as one of the cheapest places in the world to get certified is in Thailand, we headed to Koh Tao after Koh Pha Ngan; THE place to scuba. After much conversation I decided that I might as […]

A Slice of Sunshine – Sihanoukville & Koh Rong.

Nearly all of our trip thus far has been spent in cities or towns and naturally we were itching to get to the coast for a few days. We had heard about Koh Rong and how it resembles the Thai islands 10 years ago, before tourists and backpackers flooded them, and decided that we had […]

Ho Chi Minh – First Impressions.

It was only a 7 hour bus from Da Lat to Ho Chi Minh city, a short ride compared to what we’ve gotten used to since we’ve been in Asia! Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) was formerly the capital of South Vietnam when the country was divided into two during the war, and you can see […]

Dalat, Vietnam – Day 1.

We took a 17 hour sleeper bus from Hoi An to Dalat, and arrived into the main bus station at 5.45am. It was FREEZING. Dalat is known for many things, but the most notable is its climate. A city of four seasons Dalat starts its day in spring, experiences summer around midday, autumn in the […]

Hoi An, Vietnam.

Hoi An was one of the places I had most been looking forward to in Vietnam, who can’t resist lanterns the size of your head in every colour under the sun?! What I didn’t bargain for however was how beautiful this city really is, especially at night. We arrived into Hoi An at around half […]

The Day We Rented Scooters (sorry mum & dad)

It was pretty inevitable if I’m honest and I think we had done pretty well to hold off in previous locations, opting to take local buses and tours. However many of Hue’s sights are situated outside the city centre, and any tours would have set us back $20 each, compared to the $6 dollars for […]

Hue, Vietnam.

Hue is a city in central Vietnam, that was the country’s capital up until 1945. Because of this it has a huge amount of historical significance and the tree-lined, riverside streets make it a great place to settle for a few days. We arrived fresh (or not so) off of the sleeper bus at 6.30am […]
