The Maldives: On a budget

The Maldives. A place people think of when they think of paradise. White sandy beaches, blue turquoise water, and not a care or a worry in the world. It also sounds expensive. Bringing to mind pictures of overwater bungalows that surely only the rich and famous could afford. It certainly doesn’t sound like a backpacker…

Adventures of Taiwan & Hong Kong

I’m going to be honest, a month ago I wouldn’t have really thought about going to Taiwan. It wasn’t on my radar and I’m going to take a wild guess that it’s on none of yours. But flights were decently cheap and I had an extra week to kill so I thought why not. I…
