Travel Thursdays: Hanoi, Vietnam

Our last city in Vietnam was Hanoi.  Hanoi is Vietnam’s 2nd largest city as well as its capital and to me it was definitely the most exciting city by far…

We stayed in the Old Quater which is definitely where you want to be.  Our hotel was the May de Ville Old Quarter Hotel ( […]

Travel Thursdays: AfrikaBurn 2016

OK, so AfrikaBurn doesn’t technically count as “travel” in the sense that it’s still local, but I think travelling deep into the Karoo qualifies it just this once. 😉

For those who are not familiar with AfrikaBurn it’s an annual event which takes place in the Tankwa Karoo where people from all walks of life […]
