Visiting Siem Reap I first came to Siem Reap in October 2014 as my first ‘big’ (read: far away) solo trip to visit the temples of Angkor after Google image searching the temples and being amazed by what I saw. I’d travelled plenty by myself around Europe before but I’d never been this far from … Continue reading Visiting Angkor Wat – where to stay and where to eat
Where to eat for cheap in London London is a great place to eat, you can pretty much get anything you want, and it boasts some of the best restaurants in the world, but eating out here regularly, whether you're on holiday or you live here, can get expensive fast. Here are seven of my favourite cheap eats in London.

Day 5 - One day walking tour of Zadar I was expecting Zadar to be like Split and Dubrovnik, a tiny, perfectly formed and intimate little city. Zadar is in fact a real mix, even in the very centre, where ugly 60s concrete structures sit next to the earliest and rarest of Byzantine churches.

Day 6 - The Transfăgărășan Highway to Sibiu Before leaving Curtea de Arges, I wanted to see the two main attractions, the cathedral, and the 'Princely Court.
