Our super Travel Experts Amy and Claire are here again this week to help another, slightly perplexed, blog reader out with their most head scratching travel question.
This week Abbie from Taunton has sent us this message asking for help choosing which amazing volunteering with animals experience our Experts would reccommend…
Hi Experts, I’m really interested in volunteering, I’m not leaning towards any particular country, all I know is that I’d love to work with animals but there are so many options! What would you do and why? Abbie, Taunton
If you’ve got a question for the Experts send it over now and we’ll pitch it to them as soon as we can to help you get things straight. But for now let’s see what advice Amy and Claire have up their sleeve for Abbie…
This world is pretty crazy, but that’s all part of its charm, and only goes towards fuelling our desire to get out there and soak it all up. As travel lovers, we’re begging to be shocked, inspired and introduced to new things – and there’s plenty out there to help us achieve it.
One person that knows more than most about some of the weird things this world has to offer is Cat Mills, creator of Wicked and Weird… Around the World so we’ve asked her to share her expertise and some of her favourite examples of some of the more weirder events that you could come across on your travels – if your timing’s right of course…
South East Asia is a land of diversity, and while all of the countries in the region might share some key characteristics, such as rich histories, delicious food and idyllic beaches, the differences are strong and fascinating, making it the world’s most famous and well travelled backpacker haven.
Cambodia shines brightly as one of the regions most exciting areas to explore. Its citizens have been through, and are still going through, a lot, but this is a country of enormous spirit and resilience, along with some of the biggest characters you could wish to meet.
Cambodia will get under your skin, there’s no doubt about that, and the best thing you can do is buckle up and enjoy the crazy ride.
This week, we have a curious and very valid question on the best way to spend two months travelling around glorious Asia…
My boyfriend and I have booked flights to Hong Kong, where we plan on being based whilst we travel around Asia for two months. We have a budget of about £6000 pounds between the two of us – where can you recommend going, and how exactly should we to do it? Jennifer
We get asked a LOT of questions like this, so we know the Expert advice on offer will fall on many keen ears…
So you have three months. And you’ve chosen Asia. Let’s give 6 weeks to the Southeast (Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam). Three weeks to China. And three weeks to India and Sri Lanka.
So how much will this set you back?
How long do you want to spend in Halong Bay?
