Asia hits you like a sharp shock to the system. Whether it’s the oppressive heat that cooks you like a chapati in a clay oven, the street food that sets your taste buds aflame and your intestines into twists, or the cacophony of a culture so different from your own, after Asia – you will never be the same.   From over two years living abroad and on board this colorful continent, I can fully recommend a visit to Asia for those who have never been and a “come again soon” for those who already have. So far I’ve lived in Bali, India and Sri Lanka, in each country living like a local and learning the life lessons that follow in tow. Below I share my top 5 reasons to travel Asia, but be warned – they may not be the typical travel tips you’re expecting to hear. Travel Asia and you will:Learn to let goAs we danced to a deep jungle beat the heavens broke forth, and a downpour of tropical rain gushed to the earthen floor. We rejoiced in union to God’s communion, not thinking what back at the camps…


Long days relaxing on the beach, taking a boat out to sea and swimming with whales and enjoying exotic food at quaint little restaurants, this is all that you can expect and more from a visit to the Philippines! The country sees wonderfully warm temperatures all year long, making it an ideal location at any time of your preference. The Philippines is your ideal location which is great for shopping and enjoying the exotic nightlife scene in Manila, enjoying a yacht cruise and snorkeling in Cebu and exploring the white beaches of Boracay Island.
The Philippines is well known for not only its number of gorgeous beaches but also for great treks up the country’s colorful hills, expansive rice paddies to marvel at, underground river tours to explore and a hundred reasons more! One of the country’s main attractions, diving with whale sharks, allows visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of getting up close to a gentle giant in their natural environment from December to May. What more re…
Hong Kong (officially, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China) is a fascinating city to take in for the visitor. The name translates roughly, into English as the “fragrant harbor or port”
Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places on earth, which is remarkable when you observe how well-organized and efficient the city of 7 million people is.
For the visitor, Hong Kong can be divided into four unique districts; the New Territories, Kowloon, Hong Kong Island, and the outlying islands. Most tourists will spend their time exploring the areas surrounding the Victoria Harbor, which include Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.


This is a regular question on the minds of Nigerians travelers seeking a beach escape on one of the Indian Ocean islands. The choice often comes down to these 2 popular options, but Zanzibar holidays are not the same as Mauritius holidays, so the short answer to the question is “it depends”. It’s all down to your preferences, so we’ve broken it down to help make the decision a little easier.

The vaccination situationMauritius: Apart from the usual routine and recommended vaccinations, you will not need any jabs to go to Mauritius. Zanzibar: A yellow fever certificate is required and the islands are at risk for mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria. The winner: Mauritius.
The accommodationMauritius accommodation has been in the tourism game for a long time, so boutique spa hotels and exclusive luxury resorts all offering a very western standard experience are the norm. But, although most of the accommodation in Mauritius leans toward the higher end, it also has a great collection of s…


The best journeys in life are those taken with your pets. Pets are precious. They help release all the good, happy chemicals, and are the best remedies for broken hearts and loneliness. And whether you unexpectedly became the guardian of a stray or made the calculated decision to become a pet owner, there is no denying that getting a pet is a life changing experience. They become your posse, best friend, and part of the family. One look at those bewildered eyes and you might rethink your carefully laid travel plans entirely. Suddenly that much-needed holiday gets put on the back burner because you can’t bear the thought of leaving your furry friend in quarantine.  Luckily, travelling with pets isn’t as complicated as you might think. It may add another layer of complexity to your travel plans, but it certainly should not deter you from taking that dream trip. The first thing you will need to do when considering whether to take your fur baby on holiday with you is ask yourself the fol…
