The Wonders of Hong Kong Food

As someone who thinks about food 98% of the time, I was understandably buzzing to try lots of new and old favourites in Hong Kong. Coming from Sri Lanka, with a continuation of the curries we lived off in India, we couldn’t be more excited to witness a completely different cuisine; going from rice, bread…

On safari at Yala 🐘

Following a restless 2 hour sleep after a plague of beetles invaded our hostel room for the night (another story for another time) we awoke begrudgingly to our 4am alarm in time to be picked up half an hour later. The tiredness didn’t last long however, and as soon as we stepped outside and saw…

A reflection of India

India has been the most wonderfully adventurous, rewarding and eye opening experience. As each and every part of the country is completely different from the last, our love hate relationship with it cannot be denied. I won’t lie, our first few weeks in India were pretty daunting; there were days where we’d be ripped off…

The beauty of Kerala

Much like many other places we visited in India, we had heard of Kerala in passing but nothing in detail about the strong tradition it holds. This made it all the more pleasantly surprising when we were greeted with its artistic culture, warmth and positive energy. In all honesty, South India has been a sequence…

Pondicherry, the France of India

Pondicherry is a city just south of Chennai, in the state of Tamil Nadu, with plenty of history to offer. A place that was colonised by France until 1952, its French origins still heavily influence plenty of the city and therefore draw a steady stream of tourists especially to the French Quarter and White Town….

Goa in the Monsoon 🌴

Relaxation, freedom and sunshine, Goa has been the perfect chill out after the last few weeks on the go. It’s serenity and greenery are just a few traits that made me fall in love with this place and already look forward to coming back one day to explore it some more. First we spent 6…

Agra to Varanasi to Mumbai highlights

AGRA I am proud to say we braved our first Indian train for our journey from Delhi to Agra. Ok, it was only a 3 hour journey, but waiting at New Delhi train station did slightly make us want to turn back round again and hop into a taxi. We opted for 2nd Class AC,…

The Great Himalayan Trek

We had read a little about the political situation and conflict in Kashmir. With some websites warning tourists not to venture to the territory of Jammu and Kashmir, we were sure to do as much research as we could before making our decision on whether to go. The Kashmiri action is no hidden secret, however…

B’bye Nepal 👋🏼

As we say goodbye to Nepal, there’s one thing we are both in agreement of- we will definitely be back. A country of stunning views, lovely people and tons of activity, 2 weeks didn’t quite seem like enough.  Until Friday we were left slightly disheartened having not done a trek in Nepal (see previous blog…

Blog on the Bog

I have to admit, I didn’t expect this to be the topic of my first blog post. In an ideal world, my first blog would have been describing the cultural paradise we’ve just landed in; the glorious weather, magnificent views over the mountainous Nepal, all the fun adventures we’re already having. When in fact, our…

Here we go…

I had never given much thought into writing a blog before. I had always enjoyed writing, but the idea of pointlessly spilling words into a keyboard with the hope of potentially over 10 people reading it never seemed like my cup of tea. But when I found myself at a loss of ideas on how…
