Trekking and Paragliding in the Himalayan Mountains

While visiting McLeod Ganj in the Himalayan mountains, we went on a half day trekking trip to the top of a mountain, camped there for the night, and then paraglided down the following morning. This was one of the most adventurous things we have done while traveling, and was a memory of a lifetime.

Kayumanis Ubud – a Luxury Villa in Bali

luxury-villa-in-ubud

When I decided to visit Bali, I knew I had to experience a private villa with a pool. As a luxury traveler, I try and search out the best luxury in the world. Kayumanis sets a gold standard when it comes to providing luxury villas. From 24 hour butler service, private pools, high tea, gourmet food, to the level of service they provide – it is all 100% luxury.

One of the best things about booking a private villa is that it is just that, private. It is not the same as booking a hotel room – it has a door and you walk in and there are two buildings and a pool. It is like having a house, but at a resort.

In one building you have this amazing outdoor style living and dining area with a kitchen. You have a TV and…

Travel Tuesdays: Thailand

Bald blogger, Hairless Hannah

Thailand was somewhere I had always wanted to visit – the beaches, the culture, the experiences – it had always appealed to me. I am someone who loves to make a list and on my travel list, Thailand had always featured quite high up. Therefore, it was another selling point for my move to Dubai because Thailand was so much closer! So, after some planning, my Dubai sister and I booked up our Thailand holiday and off we went during our Easter holiday in 2015.

We flew from Dubai to Bangkok which wasn’t  a long flight at all and arrived at our hotel in the early hours. Sadly, we didn’t really make the most of Bangkok for three reasons: 1) we flew straight after a long teaching term so were exhausted, 2) we only stayed for one day and two nights and 3) although we set our alarms super early…

Day 2: Bangkok, Thailand

October 15, 2016

On our second day in Bangkok, we went to Damnoen saduak floating market. You will have to ride a long tail boat to experience their floating market (of course! Lol) For me, this experience is somewhat exciting for it is new to me and also scary because there are scenarios where you will get stucked in the middle of the market cause there are many boats passing by and your boat will collide with other boats then you start to think how to get out of the “boat traffic” (as I call it) because seriously it is like bumper to bumper if you will compare it to cars and it is more complicated because you are in a water but I salute the “bangkeros/bangkeras” because they managed to get out of the “boat traffic” situation. Kudos! Somehow, I won’t advise you to buy items from there since…

Guess who’s birthday it is??! 🙋🏻🙋🏻 Yup! It’s me! Yayyyy! Since it’s my birthday (and Sunday) we went first to the Holy Redeemer Church in Pratunam to attend a mass then head off to Siam Paragon Mall for Madame Tussauds woooo! Ofcourse, we ate our lunch first in the food hall of the mall where you’ll have to buy a card to be able to buy meals from its stalls. They offer both international and thai cuisines. And sorry because I forgot how much each card costs but it’s like some load card and you have to return it to the counter after or no. It’s your choice. Okay, let’s get in to the most exciting part, the *drum rolls* MADAME TUSSAUDS!!!! I’ve been wanting to visit it since forever and have a picture with my babies (One Direction) even if it’s just their wax figures, it…
