This unfamiliar, yet endearing, turn of phrase alluded to the difficulty and challenge of crossing the Salkantay pass, reaching an altitude of 4600 metres before descending into

12 things to do in Kampot

Kampot is a sleepy riverside town in Cambodia, and although only a 3-hour drive from Phnom Penh, it is worlds away from the frantic chaos of the bustling capital city. By no means a party seaside town (you’ll need to venture to Sihanoukville for that), Kampot, and nearby Kep, is a popular weekend escape for locals and

A quick guide to Phnom Penh

PHNOM PENH IN 3 WORDS Phnom Penh is chaotic, cosmopolitan, multifaceted MY TIME IN PHNOM PENH I didn’t expect to be so enamoured by Phnom Penh.

My 2017 travel resolutions

Instead of making the usual New Year’s resolutions (and ultimately fail at keeping them), this year I thought I would make travel resolutions.

It seems as though the older we get, the more life is intent on pushing the fast-forward button, ensuring that life passes us by at a dizzying pace. Travel-wise, I haven’t been able to make the most of my being location-independent (how’s that for a

Thoughts on turning 30

I turned 30 a few days ago. To be honest, I hadn’t really given my turning 30 much thought in the months/weeks/days leading up to it. And perhaps that says it all. I used to feel this perpetual sense of urgency to complete tasks within a certain timeframe and I placed an age limit on everything. I

Stay: Hotel Lindrum in Melbourne

Coming back to Melbourne now means dividing our time between my husband’s parent’s house and my parent’s house. While it’s always lovely to catch up with family, it’s still nice to be able to sneak out to stay at a hotel and relish in having your own space. The Hotel Lindrum offered a home away from home—if only

Huayna what, you ask? Huayna Picchu (or Wayna Picchu) translates to ‘young peak’ (Machu Picchu means ‘old peak’) and
