    Life in Torino, Italia

    Why did you choose to go to Turin, Italy? I wanted to go to Italy to study as finding a job seemed too stressful and not a concrete option. Glasgow University offered Torino or Genova as options. I was happy with either so I was randomly allocated Turin. How long is...

    Dubai - the pitstop before Glasgow

    I was warned that the flight from China to Dubai was going to be awful. My sister had prepared me for the impatient customers and chaos due to language barriers. What I wasn’t prepared for was the constant smell of fart and B.O. in the cabin. Nor was I prepared for...

    Penang Island, Malaysia

    Iacopo had told me on Valentine’s Day when I was in Bangkok that his company was sending him to Malaysia to work. I didn’t have to wait until I got home to see him! It was such a nice surprise but it was still 7 weeks away, and it couldn’t come quick...

    Girls Weekend in Singapore

    Singapore was a much needed girls’ holiday to break up January. However, on reflection, Singapore can only really be enjoyed to the full if you have money to spend – which we did not. Going to Singapore from the UK would have been a treat, but coming from Vietnam,...

    With only a month left in Saigon, the girl and I decoded to have more more weekend trip away. We decided to go to Mui Ne, a beach town, 4 hours from HCMC. For some reason, we had it in our heads that Mui Ne was a 6-hour bus ride. So we booked our bus for 11pm on...

    "Guide" to moving about in Saigon

    To be honest, the best advice to get around Saigon would be to to go slow. This applies to driving and for crossing the street. Don't hesitate. If you’ve made your move, complete it. When crossing the road, don’t stop in the middle of a busy street. Other drivers...

    My first week in Saigon

    After graduating, I decided to pack up my life and move to Vietnam. In short, the first week was hellish, but that was to be expected. Every time that I’ve moved to a new country, the first week is filled with confusion, stress and inevitable language barriers. Moving...

    Seoul - South Korea

    What to say about Seoul? Nothing other than the fact that it’s probably the best place that I have visited! I’ll elaborate a bit. Despite our late arrival, our hostel was super easy to find and much more organised than the disaster in HK. Cafes and Murals Day 1...
