Otres: Sex, Music & Rock ‘n’ Toilet Roll

Otres: Sex, Music & Rock ‘n’ Toilet Roll

What a dramatic sleepless time we had in Otres! Driving through Sihanoukville, I could tell Lewis was thinking the same as me, ‘oh god we’ve come to another busy city’. As we got off the bus there were surprisingly no tuk tuks which was nice and the bus company ‘Mekong Express’ provide a transportation service via mini bus to your hostel. Winner winner chicken dinner, saved us a few bucks and a battle with a tuk tuk driver! To be…

Phnom Penh and it’s horrifying history

Phnom Penh and it’s horrifying history

Giant Ibis is the way to travel in Cambodia; reclined seats, plenty of legroom, decent air-con, safe driver and most importantly plenty of toilet stops! I’m the type of person that as soon as there is no toilet, I need a wee. I have been known to dehydrate myself based on no toilets being nearby, so that last point is a very important one! This lady certainly thought it was a comfy bus! Our 10 hour journey to Phnom Penh…

Finally in Cambodia! First stop, Siem Reap

Finally in Cambodia! First stop, Siem Reap

  5 hours after leaving Bangkok on a government bus, I awoke from a nap to find we were near the Cambodian border. I had no idea what to expect and was feeling quite nervous… were we going to be accepted into Cambodia? What if we have forgotten something important regarding our visas? How do we even go about getting the visas at the border? The closer we got to the border the more anxious I was getting. About 10…

My love hate relationship with Bangkok

Saying goodbye to my best friend at Dubai airport was horrible, it’s too often that we have to say goodbye to each other but she has a fantastic life in Dubai. Every time I visit, I can’t help but think I’m doing something wrong in the UK, she has the right idea here! With long walks along the canal at night with her adorable happy dog Alf, viewing the lit-up skyline of Dubai from her apartment balcony, including the world’s…

Every Adventure Needs A First Step – The Cheshire Cat

My hands are clammy, my stomach is in knots and my mind is racing like a ping pong ball has been released in my skull. I am lying in bed after just waking up and panic has officially struck! I haven’t been this anxious since I set off for university 8 years ago. Today is the day we fly, if I’m going to back out, now’s the time to tell Lewis. I am laying there thinking about every bad thing…

Essential Packing Items for Fellow OCD Travellers

Essential Packing Items for Fellow OCD Travellers

 So with less than 1 week to go, I have started packing some important bits and bobs and whilst adding my trusty toilet seat covers to my toiletry bag, it got me thinking about some of the bad toilet experiences I have had. We’ve all been there… in a toilet cubical debating with the two argumentative sides of our brains, to sit or not to sit. The old squat/sit debate is a familiar one with most people, usually it’s…

Well Hello 2018! You took your time…

Well Hello 2018! You took your time…

This time last year, myself and Lewis were on our way to Iceland for a mini break to hunt down the Northern Lights… we found them in case you were wondering and what an amazing start to 2017 it was! Iceland was a breath of fresh air; the incredible landscapes and sheer magnitude of the world’s most remarkable natural wonders was amazing for my mind and spirit, I felt so lucky to be alive and so incredibly fortunate to be…
