Urumqi to Almaty via the Alashankou Druzhba border crossing

15th July 2017

Crossing borders in western China can be long as there are no easy routes out of the country. I got to Urumqi and had planned to see more of Xinjiang but I had enough of China by this point and decided to leave for Kazakhstan. I had read online that the easiest way to get…

I traveled 7000km across China for £211

13th July 2017

I traveled 7000km across China, most of it by high speed railway and for only £211. I thought i’d share the route I took. It was a cheap journey but it could have much cheaper as I always chose the fastest option. I think I could have traveled the same route for less than £150…

Here’s some street photos from Chengdu as well as some pandas. I spent a week in the city; saw pandas, got lost in the city and ate lots of spicy food. It’s one of my favourite cities in China so far.

Pandas in Chengdu

21st June 2017

Sichuan is the home of the Giant Panda and Chengdu has the most famous Panda breeding centre so that’s where I headed. You can hike through the forest and see wild Pandas but I’m too lazy to hike all day and have the chance of not seeing a single Panda. The place where I’m staying wrote me…

Hong Kong to Chongqing

18th June 2017

I visited China last year and ever since, i’ve wanted to go back and see as much of the country as possible. Hong Kong’s Chinese embassy issue 2 days visas without requiring any proof of itinerary which is a perfect place to start. Getting to Guilin After an uneventful couple of days in HK the…

Photos from Tokyo, Seoul and Hong Kong

11th May 2017

It’s been a while since i’ve posted on here. I’ve not been up to a whole lot; just traveling around East Asia eating noodles and taking photos. Re-visiting cities isn’t the best because then I get lazy and just re-visit what I have already seen.  I’m writing this from a small city in Taiwan so…

Malaysian Borneo, Brunei and onto Bali

25th February 2017

Borneo is one of the largest islands in the world and I cannot sum up the island in one post. My camera is currently in for repair so I felt a bit lost walking about not taking pictures. There’s some awesome pictures I missed out on and the iPhone camera is good but nothing compared to a…

My camera is broken

1st February 2017

Recently I have missed out on a lot of photos because the images would be covered in dust spots. I left Hong Kong and headed back to Thailand and found a camera store online to get it cleaned properly. It turns out that my camera has a common problem in that the sensor corrodes. To get the camera fixed,…

New York to Hong Kong

28th January 2017

USA has been good and I would love to live in NYC at some point to scope out the city. Apartments in New York are too expensive so I won’t be doing that any time soon. As for now; I miss Asia so I am returning to Hong Kong for Chinese New Year. When my…

New York City is more than Manhattan

22nd January 2017

A few days of walking around Manhattan was enough so I decided to check out some other areas of NYC. I don’t know about the rest of the US but NYC has specific ethnic groups in each neighborhoods. One neighborhood will have loads of Mexicans and taco shops then 2 minutes down the road it’s…
