Amsterdam Food Diary

Amsterdam Food Diary

I've had a few short layovers and weekend stopovers in Amsterdam, but this is the first time I've come to Amsterdam without the intention of hitting all of the touristy stops. For me, this weekend in Amsterdam was about celebrating the end of my Eurovelo 15 cycling tour by relaxing and more importantly, EATING. While [...]

5 Reasons to Visit Kentucky

Researching a trip to the United States doesn’t usually turn up very much with regard to the middle states.

Shimla to Manali: Independently Motorbiking the Spiti Valley

Nearly four years ago, I met a traveller in Vietnam who raved about the Spiti Valley in India, where he had just come from. He showed me photos of incredible valleys, blue rivers, and towering mountains. Right then and there, I decided I was going to go someday. And we did it! The Spiti Valley is [...]

Camel Safaris, Living Forts, and the Best Thing I’ve Ever Eaten: A Mini Jaisalmer Guide

I wasn’t expecting much from Jaisalmer, but I really loved this place! It’s called the Golden City and I can see why! The amazing fort in the middle of the city looks like a golden sandcastle and the city is gold- Jaisalmer is so lovely and I think it’s a must-see place! Phil and I [...]

Where to Find the Blue City in Jodhpur

Where to Find the Blue City in Jodhpur

In a city nicknamed “The Blue City,” you’d think the whole city would be full of blue hues. It’s not. This caught me off guard, and while it was easy to spot a couple of blue walls here and there, I wanted to find the spot that gave Jodhpur its nickname. At first, I was [...]

Falling in Love with India’s Most Romantic City (ft. the Best Sunset Spot in Udaipur!)

Phil has always said this was his favourite city in Rajasthan, and after going there myself, I can totally see why. While I haven't seen *quite* enough of India to say it's my favourite city, I sure did love this place. I can't pinpoint a reason why I liked Udaipur so much; it's just one [...]
