I’ve recently got back from nearly three weeks travelling Malaysia with my husband Shaun. I’d never been to Asia before so this was somewhere totally new to me and I was very excited about going. We also both really needed a holiday because we’ve had a lot going on recently- Shaun had been really busy at work, we’d just moved into our new flat and to top it off my hospital trips hadn’t been going well at all. My liver was being damaged from the medication I’d been taking and nobody realised that this was the case until I literally started turning yellow. I’m a lot better now but I was feeling fairly rough for a few weeks… clearly you don’t appreciate having a healthy liver until thats not the case!
After a 16 hour flight via Dubai we arrived in Kuala Lumpur where we started off our holiday, going around the city for a few days. Kuala Lumpur is a really interesting city- they’re trying very hard to be modern and technological up to speed with the Western world but they are building their city on jungle terrain- you’d see have huge, high rise skyscrapers surrounded by clusters of palm trees. One benefit of Kuala Lumpur’s ‘up and coming’ status is that it’s still really cheap- we stayed in a ridiculously swanky five star apartment complete with panoramic rooftap bar and infinity pool for the same price as a double room Travel lodge in London.
Beautiful shot! And we really hope this trip provided all the “cure” you needed!

This picture was taken at the view point of Koh Phi Phi island, Thailand. My friend and I had to hike up to the viewpoint for about 40 minutes just to enjoy the view.
Great shot, what a view!
Aside from the phenomenal scenery New Zealand has to offer, the fact that it has enjoys the opposite seasons from our cold New York City made the sun feel even sweeter and the sand feel even softer. Taken March 8th just off the Abel Tasman coastal track, Abel Tasman National Park, NZ.
Looks pretty darn good!

Hiking in magical koke’e state park is one of the most unreal feelings one could experience. It’s best if you do it barefoot! Kaua’i Love!

Located in Bohol sea, northern coast of Mindanao, I was able to appreciate another beauty of God’s creature and enjoyed different forms of water in one location, that’s what Camiguin can offer.
From Bohol, we had about 2 hour supercut boat ride going to the Island. From there, we were picked up by a multicab which will be our official ride to tour the place. We arrived around 2pm and we had to rush to the Katibawasan falls so we can catch up to the place since they will be closing at around 5pm. It’s wonderful to see how the nature was truly preserved.
That island is so beautiful! And the ladies look pretty good too!

An intrepid traveler who I greatly admire once told me that he wanted to keep the number of stamps in his passport at least on par with his age. By age 40 for example, he wants to have been to 40 or more countries. I was smitten with the idea, and incessant traveler that I am, decided to adopt it as one of my ongoing life goals too.
2012 was a great year of travel for me, fortunate as I was to add four new countries to my list (for the curious: Morocco, Egypt, Czech Republic and Italy). Fast forward to 2013 (Happy New Year, by the way!) and here I am on the cusp of turning 32, but my country list still hovers at 31. No need for alarm, this year’s forecast is looking exotic. With a spanking new passport and a one way ticket to Argentina spiriting me to South America in a few weeks, my stamp count may indeed top 40 long before I hit the big four zero.
What are your travel goals for 2013?
Great shot! We have no doubt you will surpass your goals
