A Newbies Guide to Ho Chi Minh City

A Newbies Guide to Ho Chi Minh City

Back in 2009, we headed to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) in Vietnam, the first stop of our travels around south-east Asia. We arrived expecting a bit of hustle and bustle having watched the Top Gear Vietnam Special when we lived in Australia, but in reality, HCMC and indeed Vietnam in general is a crazy, zany place with no rules where traffic is a free-for-all adventure and people are kind and yet opportunistic. This post isn’t really meant to be for those who want to know what accommodation to book or where to visit, more what aspects to HCMC and Vietnam to expect that we certainly weren’t expecting. It’s a bit of fun really.

This month, it was our annual trip to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival which we have attended for the past four years. We’ve already given our best hints and tips for having a great festival in this post right here, but wanted to show off some of our pictures from this summer’s jaunt. It will be the last time that we visit the Fringe for a couple of years as we are expecting baby this Christmas and can’t imagine how we’ll do the trip next year, so we made sure we booked a nice hotel in the centre of the city, researched some good comedy to see (yes we know there’s more to the Fringe but we LOVE comedy!) and waddled off to soak in the ambiance.

Graffiti from Around the World

Graffiti from Around the World

London grafitti
We are big fans of interesting graffiti and everywhere we have been around the world, we try and stop and look in those nooks and crannies in the back streets to find any gems we can take pictures of. In this post, we share with you some of our favourites from our travels and try to remember when and where they were taken. If you have any of your own pictures to share, we love to see them, so leave a post in the comments below.

The High Line – One of New York City’s Best Parks

Way Out Far - New York City High Line
Over to the lower west side of New York City is The High Line  – a  raised park park built on a 1.45-mile section of the former elevated New York Central Railroad. Surely if you’ve been to New York City, you’ve been there? It’s one of the worst-kept secrets in town! We visited one weekday evening last year as the sun was setting and thought it was high-time to share our walk with you through this photo essay…

Going to The Fringe Festival Edinburgh?

Going to The Fringe Festival Edinburgh?


We just got back from our third year in a row at The Fringe Festival Edinburgh. As big fans of comedy, it’s been an annual treat for us to head up to Scotland and discover new comedians, acts and craziness and this year was no difference. We’ve never written about our experiences before, so thought it might we worth sharing with you what makes a great Edinburgh trip and perhaps recommend a few people to go and see in the last week.
