When someone asks, “Do you want to go camping?”, your answer should always be yes. And when the camping venue is Doi Inthanon, the highest mountain in Thailand, there should be no hesitation at all. So that’s how I found myself camping with new friends on my second weekend in Chiang Mai. How we got there: Doi Inthanon National Park is located about a 1.5-2 hour drive from Chiang Mai. Between eighte of us, there were 2 scooters and one car. The car rental was really cheap, actually. For the five of us in the car, we each paid...Read More
There has been a slight cloud of mystery about the new life path I’m on right now. I think it’s just in my nature not to share information unless it’s with the people in my inner circle. #INTJproblems Honestly, I still would prefer not having to explain myself, but I also don’t fancy having to answer questions about it for the foreseeable future. So let me address them now. Question: Weren’t you just in Europe for like a bazillion months? And now you’re travelling again??! HOW WHAT WHY!!! Answer: What can I say, I have itchy feet! Question: What...Read More
Inverness, the capital of the Highlands! I really only had one full day to explore; I arrived in Inverness late at night, had one day, and then would leave early on the third day. So, again, I had to be very ruthless about what I could see and do within the space of one day, with public transportation. How I got there: My route was Edinburgh-Stirling-Inverness via train. It was a comfortable ride and a great way to travel. Inverness also has its own airport if you’d like to fly directly there. To Culloden from Inverness, I took the...Read More
I wrestled a lot with different destination ideas between Edinburgh and Inverness. I toyed with the idea of going to St Andrews for the day. I also considered going straight through to Inverness and spending more time in that area. In the end, a stopover at Stirling Castle on the way up to Inverness seemed like the best way to optimise my time. Plus, I had heard about the castle and was keen to visit it. How to get there: There are numerous trains from Edinburgh to Stirling and it takes a little less than an hour to get...Read More
One of the unexpectedly lovely experiences I had in Scotland was visiting the Isle of Mull. Mull is the second largest island in the Inner Hebrides, known for being home to some stunning wildlife. Sadly, I only had one day in my itinerary to see Mull. How to get to there: Ferries leave regularly from Oban to Craignure on the Isle of Mull. The journey is about 45 minutes long and a round-trip ticket costs £6.90 per adult passenger. Where I stayed: For its convenient location near to the ferry pier and bus station, I picked the Craignure Bunkhouse....Read More
