🇳🇵 Nepal is famous for many things.
Everest, the world’s highest mountain; beautiful Buddhist stupas; Gurkhas, known for their unrivalled fearlessness in combat, and much, much more.
Visiting Nepal for 18 days here in March 2019 with a friend, a trek of some kind was seen as a must-do.
Anyone following the @goodwithtravels journey recently here on Steemit will see that I’ve recently become a huge fan of Malaysia
Last night was a perfect example of exactly why this is: I was fortunate enough to have the chance to meet some of our fellow Steemians here in Kota Kinabalu, affectionat
One of the best things about Steemit simply HAS to be its community.
I saw plenty of this at Steemfest 3 in Krakow, which I documented at the time.
As a relative newbie to the Steemit community, and someone who’s trying to combine my love of travel with my wish to help others (by giving away 50% of
Singapore is a country full of many surprises.
On a trip to the Mongolian embassy here (while trying to sort a visit there in May), I found myself on the 24th floor of the Art Deco building Parkview Square.
A modern building completed in 2002, it has all the looks and charm of a classic Art Deco st
Have you ever stayed somewhere that was truly out of the ordinary, something you had to tell your friends and family about?
That’s exactly how I felt after I found the following Airbnb in New Zealand and stayed for two nights:

My blogging is a little behind my act
Hello Steemit, I'm sorry it's been a while.
It's been largely out of my control, largely due to lack of internet over the last few weeks. I tried, I really did!
Due to lack of internet on the Cook Islands (and the Phlippines), I'm a little bit behind where I want to be with posting content.
I posted recently on Steemit of my trip to Rotorua's Skyline attraction, on the North Island of New Zealand.
Here, visitors can take part in a number of attractions and events, including wine tasting, a 400m zipwire, the famous 'luge' gravity go-karts, mountain biking, a giant swing and more.
No, this isn't a clickbait headline; to my surprise, I genuinely did go back in time when I recently crossed the IDL, or International Date Line.
Despite a relatively short four hour flight that left New Zealand on a Saturday afternoon, I arrived in Rarotonga (in the Cook Islands) on the evening of
Travelling at 70mph, hanging by a thread?
That's what (it felt like) happened to me this week.
The reality is, whenever you take part in a zipline, there are a huge number of safety features and actions that have to be adhered to before you can go.
Still, I'm not hugely confident with the prospect o
I love it.
Ever since I was a small child, I've taken any opportunity I could to go go-karting or racing of any kind. I'm not a pro, or even necessarily that good an amateur, but I love it.
As a result, a recent trip to Rotorua's Skyline attraction offered the perfect chance to have a
Found in the Hawke's Bay region of the north island of New Zealand, Te Mata is a beautiful natural peak, accessible to the public.
Reaching a maximum elevation of 399m, you really can see for miles around you in every direction. On a clear day it’s possible to see the local vineyards, the neighbouri
It’s not often you have the chance to eat and drink at one of the world’s most famous vineyards.
This week, I had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do so.
Staying in the town of Napier in New Zealand, the famous Mission Estate was only a few minutes’ drive away. The chance to visit was too good
