The Castle in the Sky in Ba Na Hills

I have said it before and I will say it again...Vietnam is full of natural wonders and incredible displays of humanity's presence. What I love so much about Vietnam is that it is the kind of place where the people are kind and the landscapes are beautiful. Finding places that encapsulate both ideals is not …

Hai Van Pass

Vietnam is full of hidden gems and stunning landscapes, but one of the places I was most excited to see was Hai Van Pass. I first heard about this place when I was watching Top Gear with my family once, and it has been on my bucket list ever since. This unbelievable place is a 21km stretch …

Some of these entries take sometimes up to an hour or two to get from one point to the …

The Natural Bridge

One of the most picturesque hikes around Brisbane is in Springbrook, off the Gold Coast hinterland. If you drive up into the mountains, you’ll take winding roads through farms and forests — the drive alone is worth the trip. If you’d like to, in the same day you can also go to another trail in Springbrook (Purling …
