Koh Kood: The Prettiest Island in Thailand

I almost didn’t go. After spending three beautiful days on Koh Mak, I was convinced I’d found the best island in Thailand. It had everything you could need from a place to call paradise. The food was delicious, the locals were welcoming, the beaches were gorgeous, the views were spectacular, and there were hardly any tourists […]

Off the Beaten Track in Koh Mak

After an incredible time on Koh Wai, I was already wondering if I’d be able to top it. I was spending two weeks hopping my way through Koh Chang National Park, and my next destination — Koh Mak — sounded promising. Back in 2010, the Sunday Times included Koh Mak in its list of the […]

Koh Wai: Thailand’s Best Kept Secret

Whenever anybody asks me about the best day of my life, I talk about Koh Yao Noi. This little-visited Thai island fast became one of my favourite discoveries back when I had only been travelling for a few months. Back then, there was only a small amount of information about it online, and I had no […]

Becoming a Spice Girl in Zanzibar

Everyone who visits Zanzibar ends up taking a spice tour. It’s inevitable. After all, this cluster of islands off the coast of Tanzania is nicknamed the Spice Islands, and there was once a time when Zanzibar was the largest producer of cloves in the world. Spices were first introduced by the Portuguese back in the 16th […]

Twenty Things I Did Right in My 20s

“Whatcha reading?” I was lounging beside a gorgeous infinity pool in Vingerklip, Namibia when Dave asked the question. As I pondered how to answer, I watched a herd of giraffes sip from a waterhole in the valley below. “I don’t want to tell you,” I confessed, embarrassed by my choice to indulge in yet another […]

June 2018: Travel Summary and Statistics

They say moving house is almost as stressful as going through a divorce or the death of a relative. Yup.  I was certainly surprised by how much this month left me drained and agitated. Moving into an entirely unfurnished apartment as someone who can fit everything they own into a backpack was — shockingly — […]
