Melbourne is a city that I took way too long to go and visit. I'm Australian born and bred and have lived here all of my life, but in my 32 years I had never gone to Australia's second largest (and some would argue, most popular) city. This year, I finally changed that, and I… Read More

When I travel to a new country I try very hard to eat only the local cuisine while I'm there, which I usually find is delicious.

When it comes to spicy food, I'll try it. It doesn't really matter what it is. If it's got chilli in it, I will probably give it a go. I just love the stuff. I love the flavour; I love the sensation it leaves in my mouth. I even love the look of it. So… Read More

As with all of the destinations that I visited during my six month journey through Southeast Asia, every day in Penang started with a walk. The only question was what direction I would head in when I stepped out the door of my guest house in Chinatown each morning. On this particular day, my feet… Read More

Today's travel photo is of some hawker stalls along Jalan Sultan in Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I absolutely loved staying in Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur.

Although I'm not much of a shopper, I love visiting markets in Asia simply for the food. Chiang Mai has lots of markets, so I was always kept happy. The Sunday Night Market is popular… Read More

Today's travel photo is of some bruschette with fresh tomato and basil in Sorrento, Italy. The one thing that I wish I took more photos of when I was in Italy is the amazing food that I ate. I guess the food was usually so good that it was gone before I could even get… Read More

Today's photo is of a fresh spring roll at a restaurant in Hanoi, Vietnam. When it comes to spring rolls, I think that Vietnam might have the best. This particular spring roll was a fresh, unfried spring roll at a little hole in the wall restaurant in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. I took this… Read More
