Leave only footprints...eco-friendly luxury in Thailand.

•••
Thailand has no shortcomings of beautiful resorts and islands and after traveling here for countless times I have been lucky enough to have quite a few. But on my most recent trip, it was time to try something new and when Soneva Kiri on Koh Kood invited me to stay I couldn't say yes fast enough. Staying at Soneva Kiri in Koh Kood I make no secret of m[...]

A Backpacker Meets 5* Resort Luxury: What I Learnt Staying At Shangri-La Mactan

•••
I’m a do-er. A jam-everything-in-so-I-don’t-get-FOMO kind of traveller. Someone who would choose a sketchy night bus to combine travelling with a (poor) night’s accommodation – and, because I haven’t learnt yet, immediately follow it with a day of intense sightseeing.

Do you ever stop and wonder how lucky you are? I don't know you of course, but if you have a job that pays the bills, a roof over your head and a few friends who love you then that's a pretty good start. Add the occasional holiday and maybe a few fun nights out on the town and you're even better off. Traveling, more than anything, reguarly reminds me of h[...]

Barceló Sancti Petri - An Andalusian Getaway

•••
Back a few years, during an Erasmus semester I spent in Barcelona, one of my big plans was to take all the money I had left after those 6 months, grab my suitcase and go traveling around Spain, with Andalusia as my main destination.
