Byron Bay is a coastal town on the Eastern coast of New South Wales, Australia. Known for its surfer, hippy vibes and beautiful scenery, I found Byron to be really laid back with some of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. We spent 5 days here; relaxing at the beach, drinking a lot of cask wine and venturing to nearby Nimbin and Nightcap National Park. It’s hard to describe Byron Bay, so I’ll leave you with some photos.

Taman Festival was an eight hectare amusement park built in 1997, featuring Bali’s biggest swimming pool, a 3D cinema, the world’s first inverted roller coaster, laser shows and many other attractions.

Koh Lanta is a fairly undeveloped island off the coast of south Thailand and is easily my favourite place I’ve been to in the country. After spending time on other beaches and islands in the region, I felt like something was still missing and I hadn’t quite seen the piece of Thailand I’d imagined. I was still waiting for those postcard perfect views and unspoilt beaches. Many people told us that Koh Lanta was really chilled out, quiet and not yet hit hard by tourism so we decided to book two nights on the island, which quickly turned into three…

Tiger Cave Temple, also known as Wat Tham Suea, is a Buddhist temple just northeast of Krabi Town in Thailand. It gets its name due to the apparent tiger paw prints in the cave, as well as the legend that tigers used to roam in the area. The temple complex was huge- it was basically a small village with lots of mini temple buildings, cafes and shops. It was really pretty and good to look around, but what the temple is most famous for, and what I was eager to do, is the climb. To visit the temple itself requires you…
