I enjoyed my time on Siquijor Island in the Phillippines, but I would not vehemently recommend visiting. It is a place that leaves me torn, changing my mind time and time again on whether or not I liked it.
I feel bad because I can’t help thinking this is because of the bed bugs and cockroach that woke me up crawling up my arm rather than the island itself… Here are my thoughts.
It is a country I have visited a fair few times in my life and I write this knowing I will return again, with more places in mind I want to see. Sangria, sunshine and fairly inexpensive flights create a continued appeal I am not alone in experiencing.
One thing I’ve never been to Spain for — or anywhere for that matter — is exercise, my usual consumption of sangria distracts from it.
Sri Lanka is the country of tea so if you love the stuff you will definitely enjoy your time here. Nearly every way you turn you’ll see a tea plantation or two. Each boasts its unique blends and flavors, as well as delicious treats to eat with your tea.
Last weekend I returned to Leeds, where I went to university, for a weekend city break. I have always loved the coach (trains feel so clinical to me, I can’t relax), so I travelled there with National Express.
