Kyoto: temples, history & food

We only had a mere two days, three nights, to see this historically beautiful and interesting city. In hindsight this was not enough as there is so much to do and see - our days were jam-packed with temple-hopping, geisha-hunting, katsu-eating, and tasting  the obligatory sake; which left us exhausted but wanting more.

Bangkok weekends

It was 4 years prior that I first visited Bangkok, and you know what they say, second time is a charm. My first visit was focused on seeing some of the key sights of the city, while trying to acclimatise to the heat and time zone after a long haul flight from London. This second visit, a weekend escape from Singapore, was all about soaking up the vibrancy of this cool city!
