Postcards from Paris

The French capital is truly magical. For me, the city break was less about seeing the sights, and more about getting lost in its narrow streets, soaking up the relaxed atmosphere. So, if you ever visit, just sit at a brasserie, order a glass of wine and watch the world go by.

51. Ninh Binh

Vietnam: Hao Lu, Ninh Binh Dubbed as the inland Haolong Bay, Hao Lu Tam Coc in the Ninh Binh province lies a couple of hours outside of Hanoi. The excursion to the former ancient capital (Hao Lu) is a world away from the honks, narrow streets and chaos in the old quarter.  Meandering through incredible … More 51. Ninh Binh

50. York Minster

UK: York Minster, York For the rest of the country, ‘The North’ doesn’t get a look in past the hub of Manchester. If the North East is ever on TV, images of chimneys, Geordie Shore and smog portray the region as if it’s been stuck in the mines for decades in an industrial black hole … More 50. York Minster

49. Baltic Centre

UK: Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead 2 months later. Emptied my apartment, said goodbye to beautiful Busan and set off on a month of traveling around Thailand and Vietnam.

Cambodia: Crab Market, Kep Sometimes on vacation, there are just things that happen which you simply can’t plan. I was in Kampot and got sick for about 2 days, recovering just in time for our next move to Koh Rong. However, the night before we were meant to embark my friend messaged saying half of … More 48. Kep

47. S21

Cambodia: S21, Phnom Penh In 2 weeks we’ve seen the temples of Siem Reap, sampled Kampot pepper and watched an amazing Kep sunset. Whilst it’s been easy to get swept up in the holiday, Phnom Penn was perhaps the most memorable experience and left us with a disturbing insight into life under the Khmer Rouge. … More 47. S21

46. Tomb Raider

Cambodia: Siem Reap Hello! I’m currently in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Winter break has arrived and the weather is hot hot hot. The past few days have been spent in Siem Reap. When I was a kid I really wanted to go on ITV’s ‘Jungle Run’ and visiting these temples made me feel like I should … More 46. Tomb Raider
