It all started a few years ago when my partner asked me if I’ve been to Florence and I replied that I did. “So, what did you see in Florence?” my partner asked further. That kind of stumped me. I knew that Florence was in Italy somewhere but had no recollection of what I did or saw or more importantly, ate in Florence (apart from pizzas)! After that I resolved that I would diarise all my holiday trips from then on. Then at least I will remember where I’ve been and what strange foods I ate with the aid of my travel diary. One thing led to another and eventually this travel blog was born – most importantly, I could incorporate photos into this travel blog and I could access it online during my travels. I could not do this with a diary or travel journal.

We tend to travel using a modest budget by choice. We tend to find 5-star hotels a bit over the top and they don’t really enhance our understanding of the local culture. Typically, we like to stay in a place for a few days (preferably a week) before moving on. We like using public transport for most of our sightseeing unless it proves too challenging or it is expedient to do so using a tour bus. We usually book our motels/hotels near a train station or subway.
