AND WE'RE OFF TO KRABI!!!

The tour just finished our island experiences at Koh Tao and Koh Phangan. We went on a super fun pub crawl in Koh Tao where we went to 4 different bars; the night was complete with a pool party and a ladyboy show as well. We all had a great time hitting up all the pubs and getting very drunk off of cheap buckets and Chang.

EXPLORING SOPHISTICATED SEMINYAK, BALI

Stylish, sophisticated Seminyak, Bali, makes its home on the western edge of Denpasar city. Sandwiched between the surf-washed beach breaks of Kuta and the endless villas and seaside resort strips of Kerobokan, it's arguably the nerve center of touristic life on the so-called Isle of the Gods.

Some of the must-try Vietnamese food!

We all love a good Thai curry, and India's chili-packed paneers and tandoor sauces are now everywhere in the west. But what about Vietnam? This elongated nation on the eastern edge of the Indochina Peninsula is home to a truly unique and taste-bud-tingling kitchen all of its own. Packed with the tangy scents of ginger, stacks of chili, oodles of oxtail, beef broths, tropical herbs, beansprout garnishes, fried omelette, charred onions and fish sauces, it's a veritable roller-coaster ride for the budding foodie.

Spotlight: The perfect first Europe tour package for city lovers?

Ah, Europa: a continent of romance and history, of unmissable sights and sounds and smells. A bona fide backpacker mecca, this is a land of party-loving hostels and beer-mad cityscapes that seems virtually custom made for the globetrotter. It’s where mighty Berlin spreads its wings, where Vienna promises café culture extraordinaire, where Italian pizzas bubble up in earthy trattorias from Tuscany to Croatia, where snails come doused in garlic and the beaches range from the salt-sprayed Greek isles in the south to the snow-spattered Baltic in the north.

A nightlife guide to Kuta, Bali

Thrill seekers and hedonists come by the bucket load to Bali's southern surfing mecca. Over the years, the place has graduated from unknown fishing town on the edge of the Indian Ocean to hippie enclave in the 60s and 70s. More recently it’s boomed with chichi resorts and swish clubs. Bamboo warungs (earthy regional kitchens selling affordable food) have sprung up all along its main drag, and there are surf schools aplenty fringing the salt-sprayed shore.

Fear is a choice

Fear is what stops you from living. Allowing yourself to believe in your fears more than you believe in yourself is so limiting, not to mention self-destructive. How many times have you said no, but wanted to say yes? How many times have you allowed your fears to control you, pushing your dreams to the side? How many times have you chosen to let fear win?

Fear is a choice

The Banana Pancake Trail: the mother of all Asia tours

It’s whispered in revenant tones from the Middle East to India, the beaches of Southeast Asia to the belching volcanos of Indonesia. It’s spoken of in hushed incantations in the bamboo bars of Pai and the thali dives of Udaipur. It’s talked about between the palm gardens of Sihanoukville and the vine-dressed temples of Angkor Wat. It’s dreamt of along the rickety rail lines between Bangkok and Chiang Mai, Jakarta and Java. It’s written in the surf trails of Bali, and scrawled across maps and guide books and travel journals ad infinitum.
