I wasn’t a fan of Hanoi in Vietnam. It was cold, wet and the pavements were so narrow that I was walking in the road amongst a sea of bikes. So I was thankful that I had a gorgeous room at La Belle Vie hotel to go back to. I booked the accommodation through Wimdu, [...]
“We look like a shipwreck disaster” joked my snorkel guide as I hung on to a life belt in the ocean off the Mornington Peninsula. Of course we hadn’t been in a ship wreck, and I wasn’t in any danger. I was on the Moonraker Dolphin & Seal Swim, which departs from Sorrento Pier on [...]
Before I visited Venice I had no idea that the whole city is actually an archipelago of 118 small islands separated by canals and waterways.

After 3 weeks traveling through Vietnam, Laos and Northern Thailand, I found myself in Bangkok for one night before catching a flight to Myanmar. I was craving [...]
If you plan to visit Australia, Western Australia has some incredible scenery and beautiful beaches. One of the highlights is taking a trip to Rottnest Island, which is located 18km off the coast of Western Australia near Fremantle and Perth. Nicknamed ‘rotto’ by the people of Perth, Rottnest Island is a popular weekend spot for the [...]
When I booked an early morning flight from London to Kuala Lumpur, I realised I would be sleeping in Heathrow Terminal 4 for the night. Step in Yotel, with trendy purple cabins available from 4 to 24 hours… I’ve slept in lots of airports over the last few years and it’s definitely not a comfortable [...]
Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
