Now that I’ve visited a fair few of these, I think it’s time to give you a little run down of my thoughts and hopefully pass on some useful information to people who are looking at coming across for a holiday or season. A note for Europeans – North America doesn’t have ‘Red’ runs, they […]Read More Canadian Ski Resorts – Which is the best?
So, a trip the really didn’t go according to plan. A trip that took me into the US and (thankfully) back out again. A trip that decided my next home. A friend of mine was due to fly into Vancouver, and make her way over to Sun Peaks, but due to Visa issues, she got […]Read More To Banff and Back Pt.1
Heading out from Vancouver my first destination would be where I’d settle for the winter season, Canada’s Second Largest Ski Hill, Sun Peaks.

The last stop in Cambodia, before we headed into Vietnam was a very pleasant little town known as Kampot. I spent for the first couple days with a friendly German girl before being joined again by Nico. We stayed in a hostel that had been recommended to me over a year before by a Spanish guy […]Read More Cambodia Pt5: Kampot Pt1
