Book Review – Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

Book Review – Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell

Read. This. Book. Seriously, read this book. You will not regret it and it is most definitely worth your time. Outliers is one of the most interesting books I’ve read in a long time. I couldn’t put it down. It was refreshing to read something so different to what I usually read (self-help, motivation and novels hello!) From Bill Gates to rice farmers, Canadian ice hockey players to Korean pilots, you will find these topics fascinating by the end of…

Stopover Guide: Kuala Lumpur

Stopover Guide: Kuala Lumpur

Normally I would shudder at the idea of a 22 hour stopover, trying to kill those endless hours in an airport. But when you time it so it’s a chance to explore another city for a day, well everything changes! Kuala Lumpur was on my way home to NZ from Thailand AND it was one of the cheapest flights available, a win win!

Bangkok City Guide

Bangkok City Guide

The Bangkok Bustle is real. Noise. Traffic. Heat. Sweat. Street food! All of it. Glorious. Thailand is brilliant for any type of traveller – solo, couple, family, first time. You name it, Thailand will satisfy your style. Bangkok is definitely safe for solo travellers, there’s many of us here! I saw a lot of families too, with toddlers to teens.

Why you can start a blog too!

Why you can start a blog too!

(or YouTube channel or whatever!) I delayed starting my blog for so long because of the all too common thought that there are so many blogs out there already, how can there possibly be room for mine? How will my blog ever get noticed enough to have more than my mum and boyfriend as regular readers?! What if people don’t like it? What if they HATE it?! How could I possibly handle that? Well, I had a breakthrough!

A Long Weekend in Kiev

A Long Weekend in Kiev

Ah Kiev! So so cheap. Especially compared to some other eastern European countries that are getting more and more popular by the minute. The flights there might be a little pricey (we flew from London) but once you’re there the food and drink is cheap and there’s heaps of free things to do. I was pleasantly surprised how far 50bucks got me! And of course there’s the not cheap but once in a lifetime chance to visit Chernobyl! If you’re that…
