Mexico - The Yucatán Peninsula

Mexico – The Yucatán Peninsula

Despite American college students on spring break, numerous luxury resorts and the overzealous development, the natural beauty of the Yucatán Peninsula (region of southeastern Mexico) abides. First stop Tulum When travelling to Mexico a couple of years ago, we started off in Tulum (located south of Cancún). Tulum’s greatest attraction is undoubtedly its location! This city has a spectacular coastline...
River Surfing in New Zealand, Queenstown

River Surfing in New Zealand, Queenstown

Travelling to New Zealand last month, I was introduced to a new sport: River surfing! This is probably the most illogical sport ever (maybe after bungy jumping). So what’s it about?

From towering skyscrapers to old, beautiful temples, Bangkok is a fascinating wave of contradictions!
