Six Senses Ninh Van Bay

I am clutching onto my orange life vest as we cruise through every choppy wave of the East Vietnam Sea on our hotel’s boat transfer.  As the small speedboat carries us out further away from Nha Trang and closer to the hotel I am once again making false promises to myself, this time I’ll really learn how to swim when…

Two weeks in Vietnam

Update: Vietnam has waved the visa requirements for British, Italian, Spanish, German and French nationals until 30 June 2016. The most daunting part of traveling for me is the planning bit because I never know where to start. How do you pack all that a country has to offer in just two weeks time? Even harder is…

Impressions of Vietnam

Vietnam struck such a chord for me, in good ways and bad, during the 16 days we spent making our way down the country from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City.  I had preconceived notions of what to expect: chaotic motorcycle traffic, amazing…

Travel photography with Sony Nex 5n

Scenes from Cambodia: Artisans at work

The Brit & I started our Cambodian journey in Siem Reap, jetlagged and dehydrated but determined.  In 3 days we visited 10 temples in 90 degree heat, flitted in and out of local watering holes to stay cool and ate our weight in spring rolls along with other Cambodian delicacies. But my favorite part of…
