Where do I start with explaining how amazing the Philippines is?! I’ve been to numerous countries in Southeast Asia-Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore-but the Philippines really captured my heart. I had such a fantastic two weeks there, and I can’t wait to go back again some day. I travelled solo in [...]
Had it not been for the two lovely girls I met in Frendz Resort, Boracay, I may never have known about Puka Beach. I am SO glad they invited me to come along for the ride, because it really exceeded my expectations! White Beach in Boracay was already very impressive. It’s the beach you see [...]

This large, bustling metropolis is known as ‘The Mile-High City’ because it is located at an altitude of 1,600 metres [...]

Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008.
