Hayling to Emsworth walk

One of my favourite ‘nearly’ local walks is the Hayling to Emsworth (and back again!) route with or without a borrowed dog. Parking up at the free public car park on Langstone Bridge, Hampshire you can see your two choices of pubs which you can indulge in on your return! the Royal Oak and The Ship Inn. I’ve […]

The Samaya Secret – Balinese experience.

This is a secret I want to share…. The Samaya Secret. A secret about two hotels in Bali, The Samaya Seminyak and The Samaya Ubud.

Trekking in Gianyur, Bali, Indonesia

Splitting open a plumpious passion fruit and sucking the sweet seeds straight from the two halves was perhaps the highlight of a trek through the rice fields in Gianyur.

Reasons to use the MRT in Singapore.

Marina area for first time visitors to Singapore.

I’d recommend Marina area hands down to first time visitors to Singapore – Why?…because it’s central to major attractions and connected to the city transport system.
