I've travelled over 84,000 kilometers, takes 37 flights, visited 52 cities (infograph below) but never have I truly found myself with nowhere to stay. Firstly, for a budget backpacker, Seoul is definitely not the cheapest place to visit but I've always been drawn to the place and alas I found myself here rambling the city and it's stunning suburbs....
I've travelled over 80,000km while travelling the last 10 months. Having arrived in Tokyo a few days ago, I wanted to see what the most unusual, bizarre and weird things that were available. I've done pretty much every shrine, temple, museum, park and Tripadvisor attraction so I thought that this time I'd dig a little deeper and see just...
I'm a complete cheapskate but I thrive on something different. So instead of hostels, hotels, home stays and Air BnB, I go for Couchsurfing, home swaps and sometimes even 24 hour bath houses but in Japan, some of these options just seemed so difficult. Couchsurfers only wanted females or weren't available and despite having a billion 5* quality references,...
I’ve trekked over 700km in total through everywhere I’ve gone: India, China and the Himalayas in Nepal. I’ve suffered altitude sickness, food poisoning and damaged limbs at 5416m crossing the Throng La Pass, so you could say I’m not a newbie. Arriving in Japan, climbing Mount Fuji just seemed so touristic that it didn’t appeal to me all that...
Rarely am I lost for words but then something like this pops up on your travels and it leaves you just sitting there wide eyed and bemused. I always strive to find the weirdest stuff to do when I visit a place. I try and avoid the typical touristy "Top 10" lists of temples, shrines, parks and museums. In...
There is a persistent voice in our heads, you know the one. It's constantly chattering yet we are completely unaware of it most of the time. "I want this", "I don't like this person", "Where am I actually going" or "I'm bored out of my mind". You see, we've carved out this version of ourselves and personified it. We...
We've all been lied to! A complete atrocity really seeing as they deserve so much more. If you read the news and most of western media you will have been conditioned to think that Pakistan is a place that is far too dangerous to visit. This is simply not true. I'm currently sitting in my room, having had an...
I'm pretty lost for words right now. As an Irishman, you can be pretty sure I know my drink and my bars but wow! This was just mad. I've travelled over 90,000km on this trip and in all the cities and in all the countries I've visited, nothing even comes close. You would walk by this place and never...
Imagine a life of nothing but hashish, potato and the odd cup of tea. An impossible feat for most of us but in the spiritual land of India, it's not uncommon to stumble across incredibly devout individuals who do more and more insane undertakings to convey they complete devotion. Some have opted for raising their hand for the rest of...
