Happy 5 years to the blog! It’s been a wonderful 5 years of sharing and traveling — and here’s my yearly travel reflections and favourite moments of the year.
Another tick off my bucket list, as I have always wanted to visit Atlantis. And I finally got to one at the Atlantis Sanya for some underwater and overwater fun.
And here’s how I left pieces of me in Maldives — all caught on video.
I went diving in one of the most beautiful places — Maldives. And while underwater, I saw one of the most majestic creatures — the manta rays.
During my visit to Haikou, the capital of Hainan Island in China with Parlo Tours, I got to stay at one of the biggest resort and golf complexes in the world — The Mission Hills Resort Haikou. It is so so so so huge, with so many things to do!
Most people visit Kyoto on a day trip, but I think that 5 days in this beautiful temple city just wasn’t enough. This place absolutely bewitched me!
My experience surfing in Cherating, a small beach village on the east coast of Malaysia. I learned to surf here, with the Cherating Point Surf School.
Here’s how I spent 3 days in the Japanese city of Osaka — visiting castles, temples, walking streets, and just basking in the neon lights and colorful signboards that is Osaka.
My half day visit to Nara — where I got to hang out with hundreds of deer, visit some of Japan’s most ancient temples, and dine on delicious grilled eel. Oh, did I mention the adorable deer?
A half day visit to see the lovely town of Himeji — the famous Himeji Castle, and the autumn night lights of the Koko-en Garden.
My lazy days exploring Colombo. I visited a few local sights, ate a whole lot, and slept in most of the time. My itinerary was definitely less hectic than the actual city!
I had a lovely time at the southwest coastal town of Sri Lanka, doing what everyone here does — surfing! And when not surfing, I am eating the delicious local food, chatting with the locals, and just chilling by the beach.
And the blog is now 4 years old! Here’s the list of my 12 months of adventures in 2018 — a resolution I made at the end of 2017 to experience a new adventure every month.
Vietnam might be relatively unknown as a diving destination, but I had a lovely time exploring Nha Trang’s underwater with Rainbow Divers Nha Trang — even if it was just 2 dives, and only for a day.
My experience surfing in Bali’s Kuta Beach as a beginner — with lots of paddling, falling and tumbling; and the proud feeling of catching those few breaks!
Bali, one of the most beautiful and exotic islands in the world — and it goes all the way down to its underwater world too. In Tulamben, I dived a wreck, saw a statue underwater, and swam with a school of humpheads.
