That time I got to hang out in this famous swimming pool 55 storeys up – it’s only opened to guests and while it is lovely, it can get pretty windy and chilly up there!
We took a family road trip to nearby Cameron Highlands up in Malaysia with pretty views of endless tea plantations.
I’m kinda fond of this anecdote as it’s a reminder of my earlier travels before this blog was even conceived, where me and my friend R ran around the Notre Dame area in Paris trying to find this famous old ice cream shop.
This is a hilarious memory of a road trip with my friend P through the South Island in New Zealand where we accidentally killed 3 birds just driving along the road.
I went to Seoul on my first solo trip, so lots of post-Seoul recollections here. It was my first Anywhere Travel Guiding 2011 overseas, but of all the posts, the Seoul Tower Ville review proved quite popular and I got a number of questions on staying there.
The Occasional Traveller had its first guest post by Anch but my favourite post would have to be the Eat Learn Move videos commissioned by STA Australia. The Move video never fails to inspire me.
My Taiwan grad trip journal went on exhibition around Asia with Moleskine. Pretty cool moment to see my stuff on display at PageOne Bookshop.
Another look back at an old trip, also from my graduation year where I visited the extremely surreal Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres, Spain.
Not so many posts as I was busy travelling in Vietnam, but got a little bit of Anywhere Travel Guiding down. This is probably my favourite picture of Vietnam taken in Halong Bay during sunset.
My first article for Go! Girls Guides make their debut! The articles go out on the Go! Girls site first before I crosspost them here a few days later, with a little bit of extra background into my thoughts and experiences from that article as extra treats for my readers. This one on Hanoi traffic one was my ‘pitch article’ but one I thought would be really helpful to others headed there.
And that’s it – Now it’s time to look forward to a brand new year ahead and more blogging on The Occasional Traveller. Check out my 2011 Round Up Posts on what 2011 was like for The Occasional Traveller and some shop updates.
