Cambodia Travels

Visiting Ta Prohm Temple in Siem Reap

Ta Prohm is the name of a temple built in Angkor, Siem Reap, Cambodia. Every year, more and more tourists are going to visit the Angkor Region so now over 10,000 people go and visit it each day! Lots of people go to Ta Prohm because the movie Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie was filmed there in 2001. Unlike most Angkorian temples, Ta Prohm is in almost the same condition…

Asia Singapore Travels

A weekend in Singapore

After we left New Zealand, we flew 10 hours to Singapore. I thought that when we arrived in Asia we would have a big shock but it didn’t seem too different from any other city to me. One of the differences was that there was lots of greenery to balance out the amount of tall buildings. We were lucky enough to be staying with one of mum’s colleague’s Carla and…

Arriving in New Zealand and Waitangi Day

On the 3rd of February, we finished our Australia adventure and begun our time in New Zealand.  We flew into Auckland and got a ferry over to an Island called Waiheke. We were there to visit our friends the Mews who used to live in Richmond. One of their daughter’s Harriet, was in Willow’s class.

From where I am…three months of travelling

It has been three months since we left home and I have kind settled into the whole travelling thing but I am still missing people (and surprisingly school) back in England. I can’t believe it has been three months and that we are more than one quarter of the way through our trip! It only feels like one month as time is flying by. We have now started properly doing…
