Penang in Pictures

Penang is like a treasure map of art, food and culture, kindly giving you that extra bit of flubber you always wanted in steamy-old Asia.

Back to nature in Borneo

At the start of this year we made a list of places we wanted to visit while living over this side of the world. “Aren’t you always on holiday?” is something we are asked- a lot. The truth is that we studied, we worked. We still study and we still work, hard. But now we…

Go Green in the Lung

“Why is it called that?” was my first hungover question of last Sunday. The sun was shining and the heat was on. Thailand is quickly approaching the ‘hot hot’ season once again the chin sweats are becoming a real thing. Not a single item of clothing will stay safe in this heat and grey colour…

Christmas in Sydney

All things bright and Bali

I should also mention beautiful, brilliant and bloomin’ lovely. Bali had so much to offer us, and six days in this wonderful place was just not enough time. It has been on the list of places in the world to go since the days of university and it did not disappoint. Take us back soon…
