Pretty much everywhere we've been in the world so far has involved some sort of nostalgia based film or TV geekery, but in Astoria we took it to another level - and found out it's not just the Goonies the town is famous for...
San Pedro de Atacama is peak Gringo Trail. The town itself feels like Disney World Does The Desert. But there's a reason we - and so many others - make this an unmissable stop on their South American journey....
Fraser Island is a wild wildnerness that happens to attract hundreds of backpackers and daytrippers. Our unintentionally hilarious tour guide David may have been intensely annoying, but it's given us years' worth of dinner party tales!
When we found out we would be driving past the Round the Twist lighthouse down the Great Ocean Road we had to visit, but we never knew it'd lead us 12,000 miles home!
We only spent 4 days and 4 nights in Hong Kong, and after the mayhem of Bangkok we didn't think it could be any more crazy... how wrong we were!
We knew Bangkok had a reputation for craziness, but karaoke sing-offs with locals, techno clubs & meeting NBA basket ballers in a secret rave in a derelict hotel wasn't quite what we had in mind!
We caught Galle at a lucky time, visiting on the opening night of its 8th annual literary festival, which was pretty impressive!
Tea, trains, factories, mountains, waterfalls and stunning sunrises - Ella has them all. But this small place nestled in the mountains is expanding fast, so get there soon before it turns entirely from tea town to tourist town.
Bustling & gritty, Bandarawela is not renowned in tea country for its beauty - but one place alone is worthy of a visit just for its colonial beauty, and became a welcome relaxing rest stop for us after scaling Adam's Peak.
